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.

Most of the Andy’s Kars team have experienced this level of discrimination as well, because of challenges within their lives and have all decided that you (our customer) should be treated in the way you wish to be treated.

Latest: Motability offering refund & bonus money
The Government announcements regarding COVID-19 are having a major impact on the Scheme. Most dealership showrooms are now closed meaning they are unable to accept any orders, manage handovers, or car returns. However they want to reassure you that we will support you where possible to help you remain mobile during this time. Two key points that relate to financial help available include: With less traffic on the roads as a result of the lockdown, will I be eligible for a refund from my Scheme insurance? Yes, as lockdown has led to fewer drivers on the road, the Scheme is seeing a lower level of claims, enabling it to share this saving with customers. We have made this decision in consultation with Motability, the Charity. As a result, we are set to send an insurance-based refund of £50 to all customers. There is no need for customers to contact us in connection with this, as we will automatically issue this insurance refund as soon as possible from the second half of May and throughout June. I have a Motability Scheme car; how can I get help if I’m in temporary financial need owing to the COVID-19 situation? Motability Scheme […]
Wheelchair Users COVID-19 Essential Tips & Advice.
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways, caused by a virus called coronavirus and is effecting the World. There are several measures in place to combat the spread and government advice on what you should and should not do (we of course recommend you follow this which you can find here). BUT what about if you use a wheelchair, should you think about doing anything different or extra? – below is aimed specifically at wheelchair users with some essential tips and things you may wish to consider… 1) Clean your wheelchair pushrims, QR pins and brakes The number one bullet point on the official UK NHS website is “wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds” so it is clear that clean hands and hygiene is important. However if you use a wheelchair you will constantly be touching your pushrims and brakes – then if you take your wheels off, such as when in and out of the car, the quick release axel pin. So if you clean your hands but not your wheelchair then you are potentially instantly putting germs and bacteria back on your hands. […]
How to lose that killer belly fat
To lose that killer belly fat should be everyone’s aim. This visceral fat really is a killer, and to make it worse, it’s hard to lose. And, unfortunately for wheelchair users, it is even harder to get rid of than for able-bodied people. Is all fat bad? No, all of us have a layer of fat between our skin and our muscles. This fat is called subcutaneous fat and is essential for normal health. This kind of fat helps to keep us warm and also acts as a shock absorber to protect our bodies. When you pinch your skin, this layer of subcutaneous fat feels soft and malleable. This fat also stores excess calories for when we need them. Visceral fat, however, sits much deeper within the body. It develops around the organs found in the belly area, and this fat feels firm to the touch. As well as storing energy, this type of fat also produces and releases hormones. The effect of these hormones on the nearby organs can cause serious health problems. Why must you lose that killer belly fat? Visceral fat can raise your LDL-or “bad Cholesterol” level. It can also increase your blood pressure. Additionally, it […]
