From family cars to larger people carriers, Allied Mobility offers a wide range of wheelchair accessible vehicles for sale and for hire. Vista™, which offers bags of space, is based on the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi, a popular choice for those seeking extra room. Vista™ features original Volkswagen seating, plus ample capacity for a wheelchair user or scooter. In fact, it was this very feature that convinced James Pye to choose the Volkswagen Caddy Vista™ as the perfect WAV for him.
A long-time Allied Mobility customer James, from Smallthorne, Stoke-on-Trent, took the time to write to us to express his thanks and gratitude for the service he received when choosing his latest wheelchair accessible vehicle.
“I had trouble manoeuvring in my existing car”, explained James.
“I had no problem with the car itself; I just wanted more room upfront. I was told almost straight away that I could have a new car and the helpful team at Allied Mobility took things from there.”
Motability is a not-for-profit organisation that provides mobility solutions for people with disabilities. Allied works closely with Motability to help find our customers the perfect wheelchair accessible vehicle for their needs. Our specialists based all over the UK, offer a free home demonstration, so that customers can try vehicles for themselves and find their perfect match.
James commented that John, Allied’s mobility specialist for his part of the country, wanted to make sure the car was suitable for James’ needs: “He asked lots of questions, was very helpful and I was happy that the Vista was the right car for me.”
“That’s all changed now. Nothing compares to the Vista.”
Driving from Coast to Coast
James now uses the car almost every day to get about locally. He’s looking forward to getting out and about with his family too and can hardly wait for the better weather to arrive, so he can visit some of his favourite places along the coast.
“I’m waiting for the sun so that I can take a trip to the seaside, either Blackpool or Devon. I’ve not been in a couple of years and so it’s something I’m really looking forward to.”
Thanks to the freedom of having his own wheelchair accessible vehicle, James doesn’t have to rely on anyone to get to his regular appointments at the hospital and each journey is a joy in his new car. “I hadn’t been using the old one as much because of the space issue. That’s all changed now. Nothing compares to the Vista!”
James placed his order in December last year and took delivery of his new Volkswagen Vista™ in January.
He recalls: “From my initial enquiry, the Allied Mobility team took over the daunting process involved. From ordering the car to the punctual delivery of my vehicle, I couldn’t fault the process at all.”
Allied Mobility also arranged for the transfer of James’ private registration plate from his previous vehicle. “Fraser sorted my cherished number plate for me too. I’m elated with the whole setup.”
VistaTM, like all of Allied Mobility’s wheelchair accessible vehicles, is available to buy new, buy used or hire. For more information call the number at the top of the page or email send an enquiry by clicking here.
