Adaptations to help you store equipment

If you're new to driving adaptations you'll find lots of information about them on this page and when you talk to an adaptations installer.

At a glance

  • Adaptations like boot or roof hoists can be fitted to help you store the equipment you need

  • Your adaptations installer will be able to tell you if the ones you need are compatible with the make and model you like

  • You can get some adaptations at no extra cost, if you get them when you start your lease


These help you store equipment. On your vehicle's roof, for example.

A foldable mobility scooter attached to a car boot hoist

A rooftop stowage car adaptation

Rooftop stowage

You can have one of these fitted if you need to take a manual wheelchair but also keep your boot space.

It’s a box that fits on the roof of your vehicle. An electric hoist lifts the wheelchair from the ground, then manoeuvres it into the rooftop box.

Car boot hoists

You can have one of these fitted if you need to take a wheelchair or scooter with you.

The type of hoist you need depends on your wheelchair or scooter. Boot hoists can take up a lot of space.
