Enjoying Life with the Horizon

Margaret and William Holyman, from Walsall in the West Midlands, have found their ideal partner in their new wheelchair accessible Peugeot Horizon from Allied Mobility.

Margaret explains; “I was looking for a disabled vehicle that would allow me to travel in my wheelchair or transport my scooter if I chose to transfer to the car seat.  Thankfully I came across the Horizon, from Allied Mobility, which meets all my needs.  It’s made my life a whole lot easier.”

The UK’s most popular disabled car, the Peugeot Horizon is based on the Peugeot Partnerand is available exclusively from Allied Mobility.  Built for optimum accessibility, the Peugeot Horizon comes with an innovative new wheelchair ramp.  The FlexiFold™ ramp offers an easy ramp gradient and has the added benefit that it folds away completely flat to the vehicle floor when not in use with a wheelchair passenger.

With Allied Mobility, you also get the benefit of a disabled car that comes with all five seats as standard.  Two seats quickly fold away to provide the wheelchair space, meaning a seated rear passenger can accompany the wheelchair user.  You even get a wheelchair winch to aid entry and exit, if required.

Affordable Wheelchair Access

With the lowest advance payment on the Motability Scheme, from just £395, the Peugeot Horizon is not only a stylish and comfortable WAV, but comes with an affordable price tag too.

Passenger safety is paramount, with high quality four point wheelchair restraints provided as standard, which have been tested to Motability standards.  The Horizon also features a lap and diagonal wheelchair passenger seatbelt adding to comfort and security throughout every journey.

Trips Galore

Margaret and William are enjoying getting out and about in their wheelchair accessible car.  Margaret explains; “We have taken lots of trips to the countryside and love taking family trips with our grand-daughter, Alice.”

Margaret continues; “On longer trips I often transfer to a car seat and stow my scooter in the back.  Being able to take my scooter has allowed us to make the most of our trips out.  Now we can travel about as much as we like because William doesn’t need to push me in my wheelchair – I can just scoot about as I like.”

Owning a WAV has really changed Margaret’s life.  She explains: “One of my hobbies is card making so I like to browse the craft shops and having the car lets me get out the shops and fully enjoy my hobbies.  It’s also helped me to get to church on Sunday and visit my friends, which I haven’t been able to do for a while.  I feel so much more independent now.”

Great Mobility Service

Margaret is delighted with her new vehicle and the service she received from Allied Mobility. “I received a great service from Allied.  Special thanks are due to John, my mobility consultant, who came out to demonstrate the vehicle to me.  He took time to explain the accessible features and was very patient.  I couldn’t be happier with my new wheelchair car and I would definitely recommend Allied to anyone looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle.”
