As the winter months become milder, and talk turns from Christmas presents and New Year’s Resolutions to summer plans and holiday destinations, making sure you have the freedom to travel becomes more and more important.
When it comes to travelling in a wheelchair, the independence you can get from owning a car built to take a wheelchair trumps even the most well-connected and punctual public transport network.
Owning your own vehicle will not only make going about your day-to-day activities more comfortable and stress-free, it will open up new opportunities for leisure and travel.
Making sure you have a vehicle that is built for your needs will also have a positive impact on your physical health, as using a car or van that isn’t especially suited to wheelchair users can mean that transferring from the wheelchair into the car can be tiring and uncomfortable.
Start thinking about the part – exchange value of your present vehicle.
If you already own a vehicle, you will want to start researching its part-exchange value. You can always contact us for a quote, or just some general advice and information on what you should expect to receive for a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
Check your vehicle’s mileage, the general wear and tear on your vehicle, and slook around to try to find a vehicle in a similar condition to your own so that you can get a good idea of the value of your vehicle. You can always look to sell your car yourself to finance the purchase of a new one.
With the added freedom a wheelchair accessible vehicle can give, there’s simply no excuse not to get out onto the open road. Road trips aren’t just for Americans, there are stunning sights to be found in the UK too from the comfort of your own wheelchair accessible vehicle.
