Meanwhile, here are some of the most common questions to ask your second hand car dealer when you are buying a used WAV:

What Vehicles do You Have in My Budget?

The first step is to decide what you can afford; it might be easier to look at this in terms of cost per month. Factor in all the requirements such as the overall price of the car, cost of insurance, tax, maintenance and repairs, and how much you can expect to spend on fuel. You may decide to opt for a car with a smaller engine to reduce your overall cost.

What is the Mileage?

A car with low mileage will generally be in better mechanical condition; whereas high mileage cars will tend to need more parts replacing. The good news is that all the cars we sell in the Ransome Mobility Solutions’ showroom have low mileage and are only 1 to 3 years old, so they are extremely reliable.

What is the Condition of the Car?

Ask as much information you can about the car and its past history, as well as the condition of the vehicle. You may want to look through the WAVs’ documents, such as the log book and service history, although this is less necessary with a nearly new car.

Has it had a Full Service and MOT?

A vehicle only needs an MOT if it is three years old or more, so anything below that won’t need one. However, your car will still need servicing at least once a year and at Ransome Mobility Solutions all our wheelchair accessible vehicles are given a thorough check before sale. We also offer on-going servicing.

Do All the Features Work?

All the cars we stock in our showroom are given a thorough examination inside and out and are in mint condition before sale. However, it is worth asking about the features and trying them out for yourself, so you know what each one is, and feel comfortable with the way they operate.

Can I Make Vehicle Adaptations?

At Ransome Mobility Solutions we are a Motability accredited installer so we are experienced in fitting vehicle adaptations and can offer these on-site. We provide a full range of vehicle adaptations for used WAVS including steering wheel balls, push and pull hand controls and infrared controls.

Can I Take the WAV Out for a Test Drive?

Yes, we would always advise taking any wheelchair accessible vehicles for sale that you are interested in for a test drive before buying. That way you can get a feel for the car before making your decision.

Do You Offer Part Exchange?

Ransome Mobility Solutions offer a part exchange service for used WAVs or any other vehicle that you may wish to sell on. We are happy for you to contact us in advance for a quote estimate.

Do You Offer Finance Packages?

At Ransome Mobility Solutions we believe in making things as easy as possible for you, so it won’t be long before you are back on the move. We offer a full range of finance packages via WAV specialists Southern Finance. Just contact us to find out more about what we offer.
