Freedom for the Freemans

December 4, 2018

For Carol and Paul Freeman, from Harpenden, this was their second wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) from Allied Mobility.  Already the proud owners of the Peugeot Horizon, it was an easy choice for the couple when it came to the end of their five-year Motability contract.

Without the Horizon we would be totally isolated and unable to get to a lot of Carol’s appointments.  We’d also find it hard to socialise.

Picking the Right WAV

When Carol, who has Multiple Sclerosis, was no longer able to transfer from her wheelchair, the couple knew a wheelchair accessible car was the right option for them.  They originally had a Renault Trafic, followed by Fiat Doblo but neither felt quite right.  They then contacted Allied Mobility.

Paul comments: “When we found Allied Mobility in 2013, we opted for the Horizon.  It was so good we decided that our next WAV would be the same.  However, this time it had really gotten so much better!”

Mobility Day Decision

 We were delighted to hear that the Freemans attended our South East Mobility Day at Chatham Dockyards earlier in the year.  Paul remarked that it gave the couple the chance to check out the vehicle before arranging their home demonstration while adding it gave them “a great free day out!”

Carol and Paul were then visited at home by their Mobility Consultant, Matt, for a full demonstration.  Paul commented: “Matt came to the house and did all the work – he made it all amazingly easy.”

Vehicle Improvements

 Since their last Horizon™ the couple note the improvements made to the vehicle in the last five years, including the innovative EasyGlide™ ramp.

Paul says: “The new ramp is so easy to use and makes a huge difference in the road noise that comes with an adapted car.  The vehicle is great to drive, especially with the automatic gearbox.  I now arrive relaxed after every trip – it’s definitely a five-star choice!”

Life in the Horizon™

This impressive wheelchair access vehicle offers style, safety and maximum accessibility.

Paul enthuses: “Without the Horizon we would be totally isolated and unable to get to a lot of Carol’s appointments.  We’d also find it hard to socialise.”

The Peugeot Horizon™ is available exclusively from Allied Mobility to buy, rent or via the Motability Scheme, with advance payments starting from £895.
