Transport can be difficult for many families who care for disabled children and for mum Julie and her ten year old daughter Lucinda, from Cheshire, life with their standard car was becoming very difficult.
So began their search among mobility cars to find the right one to meet their needs. Allied Mobility came highly recommended by a friend and now mum and daughter are enjoying hassle free travel in their very own wheelchair accessible Peugeot Horizon.
10 year old Lucinda Mostyn suffers from Cerebral Palsy, which affects her movement and co-ordination. Using a range of mobility aids including a walker, wheelchair and scooter Lucinda, like every girl, loves going shopping and attending her regular drama and dance classes.
Mobility Cars Make the Difference
In her old car Lucinda had to transfer to a car seat, stowing her wheelchair in the rear of the car. Mum Julie explains: “I often struggled to lift Lucinda’s heavy wheelchair so we were very happy to find Allied Mobility and now have a mobility car that allows us to travel without the need for any lifting.”
With Allied Mobility’s wheelchair accessible Peugeot Horizon, Julie and Lucinda now enjoy the benefits of having their own wheelchair accessible car.
The Horizon is built with safety in mind and comes fully equipped with wheelchair restraints and full lap and diagonal seat belts for all passengers. Accessibility in the Horizon is top class. Featuring a low ramp gradient and the all-the new FlexiFold™ ramp, entry and exit is a breeze.
Offering optimum versatility, the Horizon’s new FlexiFold™ ramp can fold flat to the vehicle floor when the wheelchair passenger space is not in use, creating valuable room for shopping trips and other bulky items.
With a low Advance Payment of just £395 – the lowest available on Motability – the Horizon is the ideal choice for wheelchair users and their families looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle with an affordable price tag.
Variety of Choice
Julie recalls:” After talking to a friend who has an Allied Mobility car and loves its easy access, I decided to contact them to find out what was available.”
Thrilled with the range of vehicles on offer, Julie arranged a free home demonstration on the Peugeot Horizon. Julie comments “Our Mobility Consultant arranged to meet us at Lucinda’s school. After the test drive, Lucinda was certain it was the car for her. In a matter of weeks we received our very own mobility car and it has made a massive difference to our lives.”
Julie and Lucinda have been enjoying getting out and about in their new mobility car. Julie comments: “We love popping out to visit friends and family. In our old car it was just a struggle every time. Lucinda loves drama, dance and swimming and loves going shopping too, so having a wheelchair accessible car makes it easy for us to get to her classes and to town.”
By accommodating all her travelling needs, the Horizon has given Lucinda greater independence. Julie explains: “Lucinda loves to be independent and uses different mobility aids to help her get about each day. We can now take her walker and her scooter in the Horizon which we couldn’t do with our old car. We really are delighted with our new set of wheels!”
Allied Mobility advisors are available seven day a week to answer any product questions you may have. Jane comments: “The service from Allied has been great. My mobility rep was so helpful and made things very easy for us by meeting us at Lucinda’s school. I would definitely recommend Allied Mobility to anyone looking for a great mobility car. “
