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