Hire a wheelchair accessible vehicle
Nationwide Mobility Vehicles has mobility vehicle hire available for people with disabilities, recovering from surgery or just having trouble getting in and out of a vehicle. All mobility vehicles for hire come with 4-point Mobility tie-down systems and seat belts. Every mobility vehicle for rent is automatic and has air-conditioning.
We also have the option available to add on a mobility scooter for hire (prices on application).
Our name reflects “Nationwide”, but unfortunately at this stage we only have a couple of bases in South East Queensland. As we grow we do plan to open more outlets, as we are well aware of the need for these vehicles! We are able to deliver a vehicle anywhere in Australia but costs would apply for this. If you are a participant with the NDIS this may be a possibility for someone outside our current locations if they need to obtain a disability vehicle - please contact us to find out this process.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN HIRING ONE OF OUR MOBILITY VEHICLES:
Wheelchair – measure length from furtherest point behind chair to from of footplates or foot whichever is the longest, and width from outside rim to outside rim.
Height of person in the wheelchair – measure from ground to top of head or highest point.
Weight of person in the chair (this determines type of vehicle as the ramps are rated).
