I have at last been given the high rate mobility for DLA, which means that I am now eligable for Motability, and therefore able to consider getting a car that I can actually get my wheelchair into. I have a powered chair (not a scooter) that doesn't collapse and know that I'll need some kind of hoist to get it into a car boot, but what I really need to know is if anyone has any experience of what cars are good for getting such wheelchairs into, without taking up the whole of the back of the car - i.e. still able to have back seats up. I know this will largely depend of the type of wheelchair people have, and it's dimensions, but any advice at all would be greatly appreciated as I'm getting myself in a bit of muddle trying to work it all out. I will, ultimately, make an appointment with a motability advisor, but I think it prudent to have some ideas of what might be suitable before I start.
Thanks in advance,
