If you or one of your family members is a wheelchair user, then you will be fully aware (hopefully) of Mobility cars and the essential use of them. There are companies that can help you with the purchase of a mobility car but a lot of the time it’s a big headache and there are a lot of hidden costs.
If you take a look below you will see a selection of current mobility cars for sale and hopefully there will be one you like.
A vehicle that is wheelchair accessible is a car that has been converted in order to accommodate your wheelchair. What this enables is that you can travel either as a driver or as the passenger while still sitting in your wheelchair which makes things a lot easier as you no longer have to worry about popping out to the shops and more importantly you are not bound to relying on friends and family to take you places.
Some of the features that you should look out for on a mobility car.
- Built in ramp or a lift for the bigger cars
- Access from the side or the back of the car
- A lowered floor to maximise the headroom and the car
- Also look for some wheelchair anchor points as this will be helpful.
There are different sizes or mobility car so I will quickly go through them now and I have also put them into three size groups just to make it a little easier for you.
Large Mobility Cars
if you normally carry passengers and will need a number of seats or your wheelchair is or a size then a large mobility car is going to be very important for you. You will also need to consider whether or not you need to carry a lot of equipment with you.
Medium Sized Mobility Cars
This is the size mobility car that most people are happy with and that demographic are people who carry four or more people and have an amount of equipment but not huge amounts.
Small Mobility Cars
These mobility cars tend to have a ramp and can usually have up to four passengers
