From easing holiday travel to setting the stage for a fulfilling and mobile new year, adding a wheelchair accessible vehicle to your life can transform your today and your tomorrow. If you’ve been looking into the possibility of purchasing or financing an accessible vehicle for you and your family, keep reading to see why the holiday season might just be the ideal time to truly kick off the process.
Getting Off to a Good Start
Financing or purchasing an accessible vehicle is a life-changing decision—be sure you have a partner you can trust throughout the entire process. By searching for a QAP-accredited NMEDA dealership in your area, you can be certain you’re working with a highly trained professional with extensive experience matching drivers with disabilities with safe, reliable transportation solutions. And what better time to put your safety and comfort first than a season filled with warmth, cheer and the spirit of giving?
Add a WAV to Your List
While a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) is a bigger ticket item that won’t exactly fit into most holiday shopping budgets, it is possible to facilitate your purchase with a bit of holiday help. Ask friends, family, loved ones, charities, colleagues and any others in your life to pledge a donation of any amount to your vehicle fund in lieu of a traditional gift. This way, those closest to you will be certain they’re contributing to getting you something you truly want and need—a much more significant present than a gift certificate or new shirt.
Look for End of Year Specials
The holidays bring with them ample opportunities to shop sales and special discounts. QAP-accredited NMEDA dealerships are no exception. Many local dealers will promote deep discounts on their current and past-year inventory to make way for new stock and some manufacturers offer also rebates. This is a perfect chance to purchase or finance a adaptive vehicle, customized to you and your family’s specific needs, from a reputable and knowledgeable mobility expert.
