PHILADELPHIA, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Buying and supplying an ambulance has never been more difficult; with over 25 manufacturer websites to browse and EMS products to sift through and financing to secure, private ambulance companies and municipalities have their work cut out for them. With the launch of AmbulanceMarket.com, the largest online marketplace for new and used ambulances, EMS supplies and equipment, the website plans to overhaul the emergency services industry by creating an online community of buyers and sellers who want to streamline their buying power and usher in a multimedia, Web 2.0 era.
"Our goal at Ambulance Market is to create a website that strengthens the EMS community by providing information and selling products in a fun, yet informative way," explained Liz Henry, Director of Marketing at Ambulance Market. "By creating a website that relies on transparency, customer reviews, and a highly-qualified network of dealers, we're filling a gap that, unfortunately, has been around for far too long in the EMS industry. Nothing should be hard about securing financing for an ambulance, stocking its products or purchasing the ambulance itself. Not only are we making it easy, we're filling in the gaps through a multimedia presentation that includes videos, pictures, manufacturing news and access to information that, until now, has been hard to find," added Henry.
Ambulance Market contends that they are the first online marketplace to offer quality EMS products at competitive prices, used ambulances for sale through private sellers, and a nationwide network of new ambulance dealers that represent an overwhelming majority of manufacturers in the industry. "We are the first website of our kind in the EMS industry," said Henry. "We have seen a very positive response from customers and users. They like the idea of a one-stop shop."
Take, for instance, Gary Jenkins, Chief Operations Manager at Frontline Ambulance, a private ambulance company based in Pennsylvania. With a tight budget and aging equipment, Jenkins needed to purchase a used ambulance to maintain his fleet. While his budget was tight, he did not want to skimp on safety, "After looking through a few websites that sell used ambulances, our budget could not afford their prices. With Ambulance Market, we browsed their site and found not only one, but a few used ambulance options. We liked the personal touch and the information they provided. I was excited to have a choice, which made all the difference," explained Jenkins.
"We love to hear feedback from customers and it's even better when they share it on our website," said Henry. "Comments like the one from Mr. Jenkins show that we're helping to update an industry that has been slow to change. We want to provide customers with an innovative way to research and purchase EMS supplies and equipment."
