Many wheelchair users wanting to purchase a motorhome do not realise that VAT exemption is available on wheelchair accessible motorhomes provided the customer meets the eligibility criteria set out by HMRC. Since the rules were updated to include greater clarity last year, Brook Miller Mobility have extended their range of wheelchair accessible vehicles to a great range of wheelchair accessible motorhomes: The Liberation range.
This means that for customers who are eligible they may be able to purchase a highly customised motorhome with all the specific adaptions required to meet the individual user’s needs, adapted and converted within the Brook Miller Mobility workshop at a greatly reduced cost when the VAT element of the purchase is removed.
Having been established in 1998, Brook Miller Mobility have a history of excellence and dedication in providing solutions to a multitude of mobility challenges and have a large showroom and workshop in Elland, West Yorkshire.
Electric handbrake: A simple toggle switch mounted on the dashboard allows you to activate the on off control for the handbrake.
Hand controls: Different systems are available but all allow hand controls for acceleration and braking systems.
Turny seat: Electronic seating system that will turn to allow the wheelchair user to side transfer enabling them to drive the vehicle.
Person hoist: A load-bearing track is fitted into the roof of the vehicle allowing the disabled user to be transferred into either the bed or the shower.
Boot hoist: Situated in the rear garage, allows for a small portable scooter to be lifted into the garage area.
Scooter carrier: Fitted on to the rear tow bar allows larger scooters/wheelchairs to be carried externally, saving on interior space.
Under floor lifts: Various choices essentially allow wheelchair access into the motorhome.
If you would like to speak with an experienced advisor about the adaptions and conversions that are available to you as a wheelchair user, please contact Brook Miller Mobility. Help can also be provided if you are uncertain about the eligibility criteria or need help to complete the VAT exemption form. Home demonstrations are available across the UK.
