Description

We transport wheelchair users in Oldham and surrounding areas. Transport can be arranged if you live outside these areas.

Wheelchair Adapted

With rear access to the vehicle and plenty of room we cater for most sizes of wheelchair. The position of the wheelchair when fully clamped is alongside a seat which friend or carer can use.

Travel With Friends

With seating for 6 passengers plus wheelchair you can safely travel with friends and family and there is still plenty of room for luggage if you are going on holiday.

Two wheel chairs

I recently (June 2018) purchased a new Vauxhall Vivaro which has been adapted to take two wheelchairs.

On a day to day basis it is set up to take one wheelchair and 6 other passengers. To accommodate a second wheelchair more seats have to be removed so this can only be achieved with advance notice.

We transport wheelchair users in Oldham and surrounding areas. Transport can be arranged if you live outside these areas, please phone for advice
