There is no doubt that the right Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle can offer many people an excellent mobility and independence solution – but it won’t be right for everyone.
Often, adaptations to a vehicle such as a swivel seat, person hoist or transfer plate are a simpler solution to improve access. Likewise, the adaptations of a rooftop storage box or a boost hoist can help with storage.
As adapted cars are based on standard cars, they may well have the same features and internal comfort levels than Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles that have been based on – sometimes less comfortable – vans. This means that you have the comfort of a standard car seat. Similarly, transfer plates or person hoists as access adaptations enable you to sit in the front as driver or passenger at less expense than a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle which has been converted for you to do the same thing – worth considering if you travel as a couple.
Generally, the cost of adaptations is less than the cost of a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and so finding a dealer and converter that will help you make the right decision is key.
