Get your Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle

When the big day arrives

Once your Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle is ready, your supplier will deliver it to your home. They’ll show you around your new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and how the features work.

Take some time to practise using these, especially the ramp and tie-down restraints, and ask the supplier any questions.

Speak to your supplier before you order about how long it might take for your Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle to be delivered

Your check at home

About a month after you get your Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, your supplier will offer you a free check at home to make sure it’s meeting your needs and expectations. This includes a reminder of how the features and functions of your new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle work.

A few final reminders

  • Welcome pack and handbook: Read these, to make sure you understand everything you need to know about your new Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
  • Insurance documents: Make sure you check all your nominated drivers are listed.
