What an Assessment consists of?
The assessment consists of a brief interview where your difficulties and struggles in regards to car access are summarized. We will then come up with possible solutions bespoke to your vehicle and your personal needs to help tackle these issues. Moving on you will then be able to try out some adaptions first hand to assess their suitability.
After an Assessment?
Following your assessment you will receive advice and information on the equipment that you tried and a list of reputable retailers and funding sources.
