Buying a Secondhand Used Adapted Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, Car or Van

Buying a secondhand adapted car, van or hand controls, can be a much cheaper way of finding a solution to your transport problems, but since the selection of products on offer is more limited, you must make sure that you do not rush into buying the first adapted car, van or hand controls you find, and must avoid compromising your transport and mobility needs.

When looking at an adapted car, van or hand controls, you must first check that the product you are buying is in good working order. You may have certain consumer rights when buying secondhand; for example, the seller must accurately describe what they are selling; and you should be made fully aware of any faults or problems that need attention. If possible, obtain a description in writing of the product from the seller before you buy so that, should you find any faults, you can get your money back more easily.

There are two main sources of used and secondhand adapted cars, vans or hand controls: equipment retailers and private individuals.

Some commercial suppliers also buy unwanted or little used adapted cars, vans or hand controls, recondition them, and then offer them for sale with a short guarantee of, for example, three months. Buying secondhand from an adapted car, van or hand controls retailer is generally more expensive than buying from a private individual, but the product is likely to have been serviced and should be in reasonable working order.

Examples of Second Hand Used Adapted Cars, Vans or Hand Controls Sold in the Forum

The forum has a selection of used, second hand adapted cars, vans, hand controls and mobility and vehicle accessories.

Wheelchair Adapted Cars and Vans:   Wheelchair Accessible cars are where the wheelchair passenger travels in their wheelchair in the vehicle with hand controls or adapted foot pedals, to allow the disabled person to drive.

Such adaptions on cars include cars with push/pull hand controls, automatic cars, cars with swivel chairs, cars with extended door hinges, steering wheel knobs that help you turn the wheel more easily and give greater contro, accessories to help you get in and out of your vehicle like wheelchair hoists, ramps and tail lifts, adapted mirrors, safety belts, seat belts and harnesses, people lifts and wheelchair hoists.

Hand Controls: If your car is being adapted using secondhand or used hand controls, it is vitally important to have them professionally fitted or checked for safety. It is important to have the hand controls fitted by an adaptation specialist who is familiar with the make and model of control system being fitted to your car. You need to be confident that the handcontrols have been safely and correctly fitted because you will be relying on them for the operation of the brake and accelerator.
