1ST NDIS VEHICLE OVER THE LINE

Well we are very excited with this one that Claudia was able to get the right vehicle to help her get around with ease and include the family with her NDIS plan.

NDIS paid for the modifications for this 2014 Nissan Serena C26 Sloper with approx 10,000kms, this vehicle came from Nissan Japan already manufactured with these great attributes!

From the time we were engaged until Claudia got her disability vehicle was approximately 3 weeks.

The message here is that it pays to know your plan and the NDIS structure very well and that you have "Vehicle Modifications" in your plan and you too could be driving away in your "Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle!"

THE WAIT IS OVER!!

We had the privilege of delivering this 2014 Toyota Alphard to Hervey Bay with full floor conversion in  the rear to cater for the wheelchair and aids, allowing for driver/carers and wheelchair in the rear.

The delivery of this vehicle means now that they can go further a field without waiting for public transport a holiday looks promising I feel!!

Thank you for allowing us to make this dream a reality!

Look Who We Helped Today

Well funny how the day pans out, we were about to leave the Town & Country Options Community Day at Pier Park Urangan, Hervey Bay, when the organizer Amanda Slocum, asked if there maybe a possibility to give someone a ride back to Maryborough as they had missed the public transport bus and the next one wasn't for an hour!

My only thoughts at this point would "Bubble" take this lovely lady in her electric wheelchair as the other vehicle we had there the Toyota Noah which would of worked easily apart from the fact that it was fully loaded with all the gear from the day to take to the Sunshine Coast Home Show of which we are at from tomorrow until Sunday.

A quick look at the chair and I could see that the headrest probably did come off and the handles were able to be collapsed.  Once at the start of the ramp to "Bubbles" I could see that the chair was definitely going to go up.

Here is the result

.......and as Marlene Margaret's carer said it was a much better ride home than the bus, even Margaret seemed okay with the whole thing when they were dropped back at "Fairhaven Retirement Village in Maryborough!

Go to our facebook page to get the video of the exit from the vehicle...  Thank you "Bubble" you are a legend, I knew you would be able to help us out somewhere  and you definitely saved the day for everyone, especially Margaret who was able to get her cup of tea at a reasonable time.

Look forward to seeing these 2 lovely ladies again.....
