Author: Access Options Inc | | Categories: Handicapped Vans , Mobility Vehicle , Ramp Systems


Accessibility vehicles offer newfound freedom to individuals with disabilities and help them regain independence and boost their confidence to travel. These mobility aids are designed for convenience, comfort, and less dependability on your loved ones. However, like most customers, you may know the importance of a mobility vehicle but be unaware of the product specifications, features, brand, and other factors needed to buy a mobility vehicle. Without adequate knowledge of what you want, you are prone to making mistakes and picking the wrong product. To prevent this from happening and help you make the right choice on your first attempt, Access Options Inc has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make when buying a mobility vehicle.

1. Not buying locally
Mobility vehicles need routine service and occasional repair. When you buy the mobility vehicle from a local store, you will establish a relationship and comfort with the product that will yield a better long-term result.

2. Failing to do homework
In the mobility industry, there are wide disparities in the quality and suitability of mobility modifications. Therefore you should consult experienced modifiers to be sure that your needs are met appropriately.

3. Buying on price alone
You may be more dependent on your vehicles than other segments of society. When a mobility vehicle fails,  it is a much more challenging situation. Keep in mind that sometimes spending a little more will give you a much more reliable solution.

4. “Uncle Bob” repairs
This is one of the most common mistakes when it comes to mobility repairs. In a bid to reduce expenses or quick service, you may let “Uncle Bob” try to repair your mobility vehicle. This often leads to increased expenses because our repair shops will need to fix the initial problem and whatever “Uncle Bob” tried to fix.
