Love the South Island

Firstly, I would like to thank you all at Freedom Mobility for your excellent service and assistance, I am sorry it took so long to message you and actually required your prompt, I thought to myself on my return flight that I must thank you guys but then promptly got busy with life on my return so sorry for the delay. For your information I had a fantastic time visiting a good part of the country, went to Hobbiton had had a great visit seeing and hearing all the sites there can well recommend that whether you are a Tolkien fan or not it’s an excellent visit.

I loved the pancake rocks, Punakaiki and gorges of South Island. I attach a couple of pictures and again would like to thank everyone there. If you ever need a recommendation let me know.

Replacement vehicle while waiting modifications

Thank you for the easy way (for me anyway,) and efficient way you organised the loan car for me. I have been driving an automatic up until  now and this was the reason I suggested ACC may have allowed me a rental car. I had never, that I remember, heard of Freedom Mobility in the past 27 years! Maybe it was mentioned years ago?

The whole ‘thing’ worked good and stress free for me, Rob picked up my car as he passed  by me on the Sunday, Sefa turned up with the red Demio, and as we are 100kms from Napier Airport and there are no bus services here, unless one will stop at a pre-arranged spot the best way was to drive Sefa back to the Airport, although I feel he was enjoying his work that day!!!    It was a good exercise and proved to me that hand control is the way for to go, legs feel much better since I stopped trying to pedal with them!

While we had the little car we had to get to Wanganui for a family Funeral so this was a good time to ‘test’ this new hand controlled thing-me-bob out. After 300 or so kms I arrived home 100% more refreshed  than I would in the ‘normal’ car!

Thursday we took the red car to the Modifiers and picked up our Light Mauve Demio with the  radial hand control fitted.  An OT was  waiting here to give me a driving lesson.

Ah! Driving is 100% easier now and no stiff and sore legs.

Bay of Islands trip

We both wish to thank you for your service and the vehicle you supplied.  Everything was perfect and we traveled from Auckland to the Bay of Islands and then down to Taupo.  Fuel was great, only $130 for the whole trip!

Hand Control Car

I just wanted to contact you to thank you for the wonderful service you provided, through ACC, when I fractured my ankle. I am just sorry it has taken me so long to send this message.

You supplied me with a wonderful hand-controlled car, delivered and picked up from my door. The man who delivered the car and taught me how to use it was very knowledgeable, friendly and encouraging. He gave me the confidence I needed to be able to drive the car. Your service was fantastic from start to finish and I really appreciated it. Many thanks again.

Visiting family from Austrailia

A big big thank you to you all.  Without the van I wouldn’t have been able to make my Sons trip a success.

Unfortunately we did not take a lot of photos.  However he managed to get to the Mardi gras at the lakefront to see 2016 in, UB40 concert held here, The rugby sevens at the Rotorua stadium, the two  Rotorua horse racing meetings held here in Rotorua.  Also the cinema where he saw Star Wars.

We also used the van to transport him 5 days a week to a local resthome facility for showers. Also we took him to the Saturday rotary markets and the Thursday night markets held in Rotorua.

We are very grateful.

Hand Control Car

I know we spoke on the phone about how much I appreciated the mobility car.  However I wanted to say again how much I appreciated the car and the time that Gordon took with up most patience to teach me how to drive it. 9 weeks later I am getting slowly back to strength and words can’t express how much having the car has meant to my sanity, independence and over all well being and the ability to continue ” normal ” family life ….

You never pressured me and was always there for advise when I had questions, I have sung your praises at my physio and at the hospital and acc Nelson as well and wish that more people knew about the opportunity to have such a service !!!

Warm regards ( here’s hoping in the kindest possible way I don’t need to ring you again!)
