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.

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!!

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!

NDIS - BEING READY MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Today we delivered a Toyota HiAce to Toowoomba for a 3 month hire being fully funded by the NDIS under the Assist-Transport section, which means this family had included Transport in their plan.

This is very exciting for Nationwide Mobility Vehicles as we now know as a Registered Provider for this area that it works and our first Hire has come off with ease.

The family put paperwork in on the 22nd December to apply for this and as at the 15th January it was approved.

Please consider this scenario when you are doing your plans for the NDIS, as something as simple as this could be life changing if you are not in the position of purchasing a vehicle or just want something on a temporary basis.

CALL NOW!!!

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.....
