Caring Man in a Van

Caring Man in a Van, a business offering a unique service, recently joined the Greater Lexington Chamber and celebrated its membership with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The company, which has been in business since 2007 and is headquartered in Georgia, recently expanded into South Carolina after vice president Ryan Chamberlain married his wife, a Lexington resident.

Caring Man in a Van provides clients with non-emergency transportation. This includes services for doctor’s appointments, hospital check-in and release, dinner on the town, family events, city to city visits, holiday functions, church attendance and more. The business is able to transport citizens in wheelchairs or on a stretcher.

“We care for our clients the way we would expect to be treated,” said Chamberlain, who plans to expand the market throughout SC and eventually franchise across the United States.

Drivers are well-trained and CPR certified, and the company uses ADA approved vans. Drivers wear a uniform, are well-groomed and enjoy good conversation.

Caring Man in a Van is customer-service oriented, focusing on reasonable rates, on-time pick-up and delivery and personal assistance throughout the appointment.

Same day requests are acceptable, but long distance trips are by appointment only. The company’s territory covers both Georgia and SC.

According to Chamberlain, the most gratifying thing about the work is “helping senior citizens and providing personal care.”

The business slogan says it all: “Bringing mobility and independence back into your life.”
