THINGS TO CONSIDER
BUYING OR HIRING A VEHICLE

Key considerations when purchasing a WAV

  • Make sure the size you choose will fit in your garage or on your drive if that is where you normally park it.
  • If you are having an adapted vehicle with a ramp for your wheelchair, make sure there will be enough room for the ramp to be positioned easily.
  • Will it be suitable for the roads you usually travel and how easy will it be to travel in traffic.
  • Make enquiries about the Euro NCAP rating.
  • What special features do you need and what are the ones which come as standard.
  • The cost is always a determining factor.
  • Think about what the resale value is likely to be if you decide to sell at a later date.
  • Make enquiries about the insurance and how much it will cost to insure. Get quotes from two or three difference insurance companies.
  • Think about the fuel consumption. How many miles you are likely to cover yearly and decide whether a petrol or diesel wheelchair car would be a better buy.
  • Is it roomy enough for the entire luggage or equipment you might need or want to carry with you at all times?
  • Consider if you would need central locking, air conditioning or electric windows and whether you would prefer a manual or automatic vehicle
  • Are there enough seats for any passengers you might carry with you?
  • What about handling and braking?
  • Would you be able to get in and out of the Wheelchair accessible vehicle or would you need someone to assist you.
  • Would you have enough clearance without hitting your head when getting in and out?
  • Would it be adequate to have a ramp for your wheelchair or would a lift be necessary?
  • Once you are inside the adapted vehicle can you see out of all the windows easily?
  • Assess where your wheelchair will be positioned and make sure there is enough clearance on all sides.
  • Make sure the wheelchair can be safely secured so that it will not move when the vehicle is in motion.
  • Give some thought to how any luggage or equipment can be secured safely and does not obstruct you when you get out of the vehicle.
  • How reliable would be the equipment used to get in and out. Make sure there is a dealer available in the case of a breakdown or service.
  • Make sure that the conversion you choose is comfortable and that, when in motion, the noise is kept to a minimum as a noisy vehicle can affect your enjoyment of driving.
