Thinking of buying an adapted car?
We have used years of market leading experience to offer a comprehensive choice of specifically adapted vehicles to cater for the needs of disabled drivers whose individual circumstance mean they require adaptation to their own vehicle or need to acquire a converted car to continue driving.
What adaptations can we offer you?
It can be a simple steering assistor knob or more complex push pull hand controls, left foot accelerator pedal, handbrake assistor or even more state of the art devices such as Lodgesons steering ball with infra red or an electronic handbrake. If your car is suitable for adaptation we can complete the work or can source a suitable vehicle that is already adapted from our Motability partners or can be adapted prior to delivery to yourself.
What information is needed?
Our technician will be able to help you to decide if your car is suitable for conversion or if we need to source another vehicle in the first instance. We can offer to part exchange your existing vehicle when your next one is ready. If your existing car is suitable then we can hire an adapted vehicle to you while we complete the adaptations.
If you are a wheelchair user who drives then we can also offer our services to provide a cost effective solution to allow you to transfer from chair to drivers seat. Driver transfer vehicles are often window van based conversions that have the drivers seat replaced by an electric adjustable seat on rails. The driver enters the vehicle using the rear remote door function and rear access lift and pull alongside the retracted seat for transfer. before using the controller to manouevre the drivers seat into position. The vehicle is driven using the various adaptations fitted to your requirements. Exiting the vehicle is the reverse procedure. These vehicles are usually based on the Mercedes sprinter short wheelbase or similar platform vehicle. They are very expensive to buy new but represent excellent value on the used market when de fleeted from the Motability scheme and can often be purchased used for the same or less than the Motability advance payment - leaving you in control of your finances.
Drive from wheelchair cars are designed to allow access and room to drive the wheelchair into the correct position and secure it for travel. Small drive from wheelchair cars typically feature lowered floor sections, auto door openers, lightened steering and electronic gear changing and handbrake. Larger vehicles will usually include a remote tail lift or side access ramp and can also accomodate more seated passengers or additional wheelchair travel places. Again driver controls can be adapted to individual requirements. The nature of these vehicles mean they are usually prohibitively expensive to buy new or require a very high advance payment for the Motability scheme. Once again an ex lease scheme drive from wheelchair vehicle can make good sense and usually be further adapted to individual needs at sensible cost.
