LONG AWAITED - DREAM COME TRUE!!

A dream finally came true for this mother and her son, when they were able to make their lives become a reality with the purchase of a disability vehicle!

Many hoops and loops were jumped for this lovely lady and her son to get their “Freedom”!

Through the assistance of the old VOSS Scheme, some savings and generous donations it became a reality.

This pair our now out and about on the Sunshine Coast and further afield visiting places and doing menial day to day stuff, that we all take for granted, that was almost an impossibility prior to their vehicle being delivered.

Jack and I get so much pleasure when we “change peoples lives”, and see the amazing smiles on their faces…

If anyone would like to know how to raise funds to get their own vehicle to “change their lives”, then this lovely lady is more than willing to assist, just contact us here at the office and we can pass her details on.

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!"

TASMANIA HERE WE COME

We are very excited to have our first Disability Vehicle go into Tasmania.

The Sayer family reflect how happy they are in these photos as they are able to get their Dad and Grandfather "Dennis" back into their lives with the day to day stuff that is very difficult when you don't have the right vehicle to take the wheelchairs.

This Toyota Alphard with its rear loading ramp and seating for 6 people plus a wheelchair definitely makes this a very inclusive vehicle for a family to own.

Thank you to the Sayer family for their support this far away from home for them!!

PALMWOODS MUM RAISES MONEY FOR A VEHICLE

Lauren & Isabella ("Issy")Taylor's lives would change with a vehicle to carry Issy and her electric wheelchair.  At the moment Lauren is transferring Issy, which as time goes on will only get more awkward for them and also Issy wouldn't have the independence of her own wheels if they don't have the right vehicle to transport it.

This vibrant young 3 year old is learning to master an electric wheelchair and is doing so with a great deal of determination.

Lauren contacted us from our website to give her a quote for a vehicle as she was trying to fund raise for one.  From here we have met both Lauren, Issy and their OT Aileen where we have had trials with a vehicle and the new electric wheelchair.

Just meeting this mother and daughter gives you inspiration to go the extra mile to help them achieve their goals, hence the reason for us posting this along with the link to the Go Fund Me page https://www.gofundme.com/567cvs8.

We pride ourselves on "Changing Lives"  this scenario definitely takes on our slogan, with pleasure!

 

 

Parent 2 Parent (P2P)

Below is a story from Robbie Murray the driver of the Mazda 2 that we have for hire, it is a great read from someone that is not familiar with wheelchairs and disability vehicles.

Thank you so much Robbie

Drivers report:

As a driver of the vehicle I was very impressed with the ease of how to enter and exit the vehicle with a person in a wheelchair.  The Mazda 2 was easy to reverse and park at all locations including the busy main roads. The only other thing to consider when buying /hiring this vehicle, on steep declines it goes a little slow but taking into account the size of the vehicle, the steepness of the road and the weight of the passengers it did amazingly well.

The passenger in a wheel chair commented on being able to see out the window which was an extra bonus in a small vehicle. The passenger also commented on feeling secure when anchored in and being close to the front seat made it easier to be a part of the conversation.

The Mazda 2 is a very impressive vehicle and we will definitely promote it through - out our networks as we have tried and tested it and can give a positive report to families and people with disabilities who need to have specialised transport options.
