Hi Geoff, We have had our car for eight months now and I thought I would let you know how we're doing. Firstly, it has changed our lives quite a bit.  As you know, I am a 57year old quadriplegic living with my wife and I have no strength in my arms or legs.  It was, therefore, a major operation to get me out of my wheelchair into a car or a vehicle.  The result was that I was virtually housebound.  It was a crisis if I had to go see a doctor.  I looked at many different options to try and resolve this problem.  None of which seemed to be suitable.  After about two years I was getting desperate.  Then the opportunity presented itself to get the Renault Kangoo which was already converted to accommodate my wheelchair. Since we've had the car things have changed a lot.  We got the car in May last year and I was able to attend three World Cup soccer matches!  We can now go out without any problems, effort, stress or aggravations.  My wife can take me to the mall, restaurant or movies.  Prior to having the car, these things were out of the question.  We have also done a few trips which have all been successful.  What a blessing! Secondly, I would like to report that the car has exceeded my expectations.  As you know, Renault is not one of the main popular brands in South Africa.  However, I have been impressed with this little car.  It has performed very satisfactory and is very functional.  I doubt if I could have done better with another make of vehicle.  I am very satisfied with the Renault.  Further, the conversion for the wheelchair is wonderful.  My wife loads me and unloads me with a minimum effort in no time at all.  Thirdly, I must mention that the option of getting this car was probably my far the most cost-effective one.  The cost of buying a car, either new or used, and having it converted was definitely a lot more than importing the finished product.  Bearing in mind, the car I got was virtually brand new. Finally, I have two children who are going to get married in the next few months.  I am so grateful that I will be able to attend these functions, one of which will be in Pretoria.  That just about says it all. Thank you very much. Kind regards,Dick. (27/01/2011)
Hi Geoff, "We had been looking for several years for a car that Sasha's wheelchair could fit into and also that Sasha could stay seated in her chair and drive into the vehicle, without having to pick her up and put her onto the back seat. I was so tired of trying to find a kind passerby or a security assistant to help me pick up the heavy battery- operated chair and put it into the boot. I kept a purse full of silver coins for tips. A day out, depending how many times we stopped somewhere, cost me a fortune just in tips. Every car that was recommended was either very big, very expensive, used a lot of petrol and to service it was a daunting prospect. We would have had to do major construction work to our garage just to house the car and have enough space to get Sasha in and out. Then I saw this little sentence in a magazine for the disabled that if one was looking for a vehicle, to phone Geoff. What a surprise when I called. All our prayers were answered. Here was this gorgeous little car, very spacious inside though, goes like a dream and has made our lives so easy. We can go anywhere without having to ask for help. It also fits into our garage with room to spare. Has sliding doors, which again doesn't take up space.It has been superbly fitted out with a ramp and lots of little details, to make our lives easier. Sasha can sit comfortably. Her chair is tied down and is absolutely safe. Thank you Geoff. Kind regards, Zeta
Hello Geoff, Anne and I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity of owning a wheelchair accessible vehicle.   Our little blue Kangoo is everything we hoped it would be.   As you know Anne has muscular dystrophy and cannot walk and has very little strength in her arms, and I had been pushing her about in a standard wheelchair, which meant having to fold this and pack it into the car each time we went out, which became very tiring.   Anne then got a motorised wheelchair, which it was impossible to load into our little Honda.   We looked locally for a wheelchair friendly car, but could only get large multi carrier vehicles, very expensive, fuel guzzlers, and wouldn’t have fitted into our garage.  We also looked at converting cars on the local market, but the only suggestions were most inadequate, and didn’t have any safety features. When we were put in touch with you we were so pleased to see the Kangoo, which was exactly what we needed.  Once a vehicle was obtained you were able to guide us through all the red-tape which would have been a daunting task.    The vehicle when it arrived was even better than we had expected, and fulfils our needs perfectly.   We are now able to go out shopping, to the beachfront and visit friends with no more problems of pushing wheelchairs.    At present Anne still sits in the front seat, but there is no problem with her going straight into the back of the vehicle on the wheelchair.   There is plenty of room inside, for our shopping, and we are even able to take our dog to the beach quite happily. The safety features of the properly converted vehicle are most important, and we have not seen anything similar in this country.  The expense and time taken to get the vehicle imported has been well worth the effort, and we recommend this avenue to anyone in a similar position. Regards, Graham and Anne, South Africa
What our Customer’s are saying...
Keenan’s Story The smile on Keenan's face and the twinkle in his eyes speak volumes about what he thinks about his new Renault Kangoo.  He knows that when he is loaded into the Kangoo, it usually means that he is off to visit somewhere fun - his favorite is riding in the glass elevators in all the local shopping centres.  The best part about the Kangoo is how quickly and easily he can be loaded and strapped in.Keenan was born with severe cerebral palsy, and he is now 12 years old.  When he first started getting too heavy for his Mom, Kay, to lift him in and out of their car, they bought a  Renault Kangoo, took the seats out of the back and used a homemade ramp to push Keenan into the car. This worked fairly well, but the ramp was cumbersome and steep and still took a lot of effort to get Keenan into the car. When it came time to replace that Kangoo, his Dad Stuart Grey, heard about the second-hand adapted vehicles available from Motability in the UK, through Cape Mobility. After investigating every option, they decided that this was the most cost effective vehicle that would suit their needs, and they have been very happy with their decision
