Farmingdale, NY – April 20, 2012 – At MaxiAids Products for Independent Living, giving customers the best service is the top priority.

“It’s important that those who depend on us for solutions to their challenges get exactly what they need,” says Elliot Zaretsky, MaxiAids’ president and founder. “We strive to provide accurate information and give fast answers to questions… and to recommend the right products for each customer.”

One of the ways MaxiAids makes sure the staff stays informed about the newest products and latest technologies is through ongoing training.

“We have regular meetings in which our customer service team is presented with new items,” says Mr. Zaretsky. “They see the product demonstrated, learn about its features and functions, and get to test it themselves.”

MaxiAids’ experienced and knowledgeable team members answer countless customer questions every day by telephone, fax, email, facebook and twitter.

Mr. Zaretsky believes that superior product knowledge, along with many years of industry experience, make MaxiAids customer service staff stand out above the competition.
