When Anna MacLeod was tasked with finding an accessible car to rent for a client of hers, she wanted to make sure she secured a top-quality wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) from a reliable company.

Anna runs Trusted Travel Buddies, a travel business that organises bespoke holidays for adults who have additional support needs.  Her latest client, Jackie, was looking for a post lockdown getaway to visit friends and family on the scenic south coast.  Anna got in touch with Allied Mobility Hire to make sure Jackie’s holiday went off without a hitch. 

Independent Holidaying 
Jackie needed a large car so she could travel in her electric wheelchair and with space to store her various essential mobility aids, not to mention her luggage!  Anna previously had a bad experience with a local hire provider, so this time she set about searching online to find a company that wouldn’t let her down.   

Anna says: “Hiring with Allied Mobility was very pleasant and straight forward. Janet organised our reservation and really took the time to understand our client’s needs. She was also very knowledgeable about the fleet of vehicles on offer.” 

Signed, Sealed, Delivered 
Anna decided that the Ford Independence™ was the best choice for a safe and comfortable break away.  Allied Mobility Hire arranged to deliver the Independence™ to Jackie’s home at a time that suited her and provided a full demonstration of the vehicle.  This meant that Jackie and her Trusted Travel Buddy representative could set off with confidence and peace of mind.  

Anna recalls: “The delivery driver was extremely helpful and friendly. He made time to thoroughly explain all of the cars many features. He also provided contact details if we had any problems while we were away.”

Trusted Travelling with Allied 
Anna reached out to the rental team after her client returned home to feedback just how much the experience exceeded expectations.  Allied Mobility Hire is now top of the list for any of Anna’s future clients planning an accessible holiday. 

Anna concludes: Jackie’s holiday was made possible thanks to Allied Mobility. It had a huge positive influence on her health and well-being and it was lovely to see her smiling again.”
