Perhaps like you, I am a Wheelchair user so I understand what it’s like to have special requirements or need adaptations to your vehicle. I started this business in November 2002 because of the negative experiences I had with other business owner, it was so difficult to get good service or a straight answer from anyone, let alone find a provider that took the time to understand my challenges or requirements.
