We know just how important it is for people with mobility problems to have the freedom to live independently, so we are proud to announce that we are now an accredited partner of Autochair – the largest manufacturer of wheelchair and scooter hoists and person lifts in the world!
It’s a major development for us as we continue to expand our business and means we are now in an even better position to help and advise customers looking at adapting their vehicle to meet their needs.
Adapting a vehicle
Being able to jump in the car and drive off is something most people take for granted and give little thought to, but for those with mobility problems the restrictions of suddenly NOT being able to do it can create major issues.
Even the most simplest of tasks can become difficult, if not impossible, which is why adapting a vehicle is so important in helping people to get out and about under their own steam, improve their quality of life and wellbeing and retain their independence.
Making a difference
Autochair, based in Derbyshire, has changed the lives of tens of thousands of people with innovative vehicle adaptions since the award-winning firm was launched in 1983. The company’s solutions are allowing customers to stay mobile without having to pay for expensive modifications or buy a new vehicle, with products like:
- Person lifts
- Wheelchair hoists
- Scooter hoists
- Hand controls, special levers for the driver to operate the brake and accelerator with their hands
- Steering balls to aid driving and quick release brake pedals
- A special foot accelerator to the left of the brake pedal for people who can’t use their right foot
All Autochair products are designed to the highest standard, easy to operate, take up the minimum amount of space and can be fitted to hundreds of vehicle makes and models. The goal of Autochair is to make it easy to get in and out of vehicles and effortless to load and unload wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Don’t forget we do servicing and repairs on all of the products we sell from our specialist base at Welsh Frankton, near Oswestry and also deliver across Shropshire, West Midlands and North and Mid Wales.
And as the winter weather approaches don’t forget to check your accessories and parts – batteries and tyres are pretty vital!
