FAQ Vehicle Adaptation
IS IT CORRECT I DO NOT NEED TO PAY VAT ?
If you are chronically sick or have a disabling condition, and you are purchasing equipment designed solely for disabled people you are VAT exempt.
CAN I TRY THE ADAPTIONS TO SEE IF THEY ARE SUITABLE ?
Yes, we have a number of demonstration vehicles. We can offer you a mobile demonstration at your home or place of work within a 30 mile radius. We also have a showroom with more adaptations you can try. Please telephone for an appointment on 0161 776 1594.
CAN I CHANGE MY ADAPTATION FROM ONE VEHICLE TO ANOTHER?
Not all products are transferable, please contact us for advice.
I WANT TO PURCHASE A HOIST FOR MY VEHICLE, HOW WILL I KNOW IT IS SUITABLE?
It is vital before purchasing a vehicle that you have all the dimensions and weight of the scooter / wheelchair, and know if the seat and armrests are removable. The hoist will take up some room at the side and the top and in some vehicles it may be necessary to fold down the seat and remove the parcel shelf. Please contact us so we can best advise you. Also see our Scooter Measuring Guidelines for more information.
DO I NEED TO PAY FOR MY ADAPTATIONS?
On the Motability scheme many adaptations are free of charge, though, sometimes there is a small contribution on some adaptations.
