Anyone in need of a WAV (wheelchair access vehicle

Anyone in need of a WAV (wheelchair access vehicle

I am getting rid of our ( my ) Fiat Doblo 1.9 Multijet Diesel 2006 ( if that means anything to anyone . ) It has a ramp and a winch ( for heavy chairs or mobility scooters ) . It has been recently serviced , has a new clutch and is Mot'd until March 2017 . There are just over 100000 miles on the clock . It has a few foibles - when the engine is cold it smokes a bit if you put your foot down in second , but I have had it checked out and there isn't a problem and it sailed through the emissions test for the MOT and shutting the tailgate is a knack but easy to master!

I have put it up for sale for £1600 but if someone here has a need I would be happy with £1200 and as I know myself it can be expensive dealing with the needs of PSP so I would be happy for that to be paid in instalments over two years if that would help .

I would also be happy to deliver it to your home as long as you get me a train ticket home and drop me off at a station .If anyone is interested message me .

Well I have bad days and worse days . Kate has had her 11year old stepson staying with her over from Spain which hasn't really allowed her to do what she needs to do , so it has been difficult for her and she really needs time for herself . Bur I guess we will both get there in the end .

Wow! What a brilliant offer. I hope those who are not at that stage, think of the future and are prepared when it comes. An offer not to be missed.

So much to do at this time Georgepa. I'm in very hot Canada (34) but still thinking of you.

Hello there,

I am interested but I need to speak to my mother who has psp as she would be funding it. It's really hard getting her into and out of a normal car and this may be the answer as things are only going to get harder.

Where would you be coming from G?

I live in Devon near Exeter. When my wife was in the earlier stages of PSP she progressively found getting in and out of cars more difficult . I changed car twice but realised the inevitable would happen so I bought the WAV before we needed it and at first she sat in the passenger seat but quite suddenly she lost all mobility and I was pleased that we had thought ahead and were prepared . You are absolutely right to think ahead as things do get harder and often with little warning .

Hi George,

I saw this yesterday and have thought about it all day, wishing I had seen it first, by the time I saw it Carrie had already replied. Then I thought I would say 'if that doesn't work out, please contact me'. Now I see you have already a second in line, however please think of me as 3rd in line ( or 2nd as Carrie has dropped out ). It would be for my sister and I to help our parents get out more easily, my Mum (PSP) is struggling with transferring more and more, then my dad (MS) ,who has been a wheelchair user for longer, is also struggling. So even if we had to do two repeat journeys, we will still be able to get them out and about.

Thank you

Julie
