Most people don’t stay in a wheelchair long as there disability could be temporary or it’s required while resting from an operation. So a used wheelchair could be a good investment or bargain for someone else.
As there stay is short lived in a wheelchair often the used wheelchair will remain in good condition. As people mainly use the wheelchair for a few days then buying a used wheelchair could be worth the investment.
Fitting a wheelchair lift to your vehicle
First place to look for a used wheelchair would be the local newspaper or even the notice boards of local supermarkets or other places of high volume of people. Wheelchairs are normally quite cheap but buy with caution to ensure you buy a good one. When buying test the wheelchair out and make sure there is no obvious defects.
If you are aware handicapped parking spaces now days are much larger than the regular spaces. This is due to the need for space for a wheelchair ramp to be used. The extra space allows the wheelchair lift to descend next to the car, which requires a little extra space. That means that anywhere there are handicapped spaces, it’s likely you’ll have enough room to utilize your wheelchair lift.
If you use a wheelchair you will want to be independent and you will not want others helping you all the time. With today’s technology the wheelchair lift can help you achieve this slightly more. You can find a place that sells the lift which should be most wheelchair shops or dealers.
