Healthcare (ACC) Funded Disability Vehicle Hire
If you have had an accident or are recovering from surgery that prevents you driving your own car, Freedom Mobility can provide a disability vehicle with adapted controls.
ACC or your insurance company will often cover the cost. To learn more about whether you may be able to get help with costs for necessary travel please visit the ACC website or give us a call and we will advise you on your options.
Unable To Drive After An Accident
There is no need to sit at home or be reliant on others while recovering from an accident or surgery – let us show you how easy getting around can be.
You can continue to travel to work or to medical, physiotherapy and occupational therapist appointments – enjoy life with a vehicle modified to suit your needs. We regularly provide vehicles to clients with broken legs, Achilles tendon tears, knee injuries or replacements, crushed ankles, hand or shoulder issues and many other types of injury, surgery or temporary disability.
We have over 140 disability modified vehicles including:
- Hand control vehicles
- Wheelchair hoist vans and wheelchair lift vans
- Wheelchair ramp vehicles
- Left-foot accelerator cars and vans, and
- Vehicles with swing out seats
All mobility vehicles are easy to use and we give full tuition on all disability-adapted controls.
The Most Common “After-Injury” Questions
The questions we hear most often after a person has an accident are: “Can I drive with a cast on?” “Can I drive with a moonboot on?” “Can I drive with a broken leg?” Freedom Mobility’s answer to all these questions is, “Yes.”
Others ask, “How soon after an accident or leg injury or hand injury can I drive?” The answer is, as soon as your doctor gives the okay for you to give Freedom Mobility a call. We are ACC approved and experienced in liaising with ACC or insurance providers on behalf of clients.
