They look on it I guess as a necessity rather than just a need or want..hence they think they can over charge folks.

That's disgusting! how can they justify such a big profit?

Have you tried [url]www.freecycle.org[/url]

Or the mobility scheme down the town centre, they might have a spare one?
#5
They also have a charity mobility shop in Middleton all they ask for is a donation

UNFORTUNATLY THE MOBILITY CENTRE IN OUR AREA USES ONE OF THESE RIP OFF COMPANIES TO DO THERE SERVICING AND PARTS SO THEY ARE THE SAME PRICE IF NOT MORE (I GOT THE CHARGER FROM EBAY AND ITS THE SAME ONE THAT WENT POP SO IM CHUFFED,NOW ALL I NEED IS A NEW WHEELCHAIR)


As i have said, try [url]www.freecycle.org[/url] you will be amazed what people give away on there.

Hi,

God that's expensive, it's been 10+ years since i've sold those scooters (we used to supply Millercare too!) but I remember we used to get them from a battery shop on the Dock Road in Liverpool for about as much as what you've found on Ebay x

No, i mean, he should email or telephone them.

I am not cruel in the slightest but i wouldn't mind giving a few 18 year old's a clip round the ear.

I don't know the reason why you need a scooter, but in some circumstances you can get help with the cost of these things.:)

THANK YOU VERY MUCH:-D MY WIFE WHO WONT LET ME SAY HER REAL NAME DOSE LOVE ME SOME TIMES TOO MUCH LOL


Good for you, the key to this mad world, is stay as happy as possible and alway's look for the good in life.

You could have been killed during the accident, thankfully you was not.

HUKD would be a sad place without you.

Good luck with the future x x

HEY CHICKY

caps just the peeve the dg guy.

i understand the rip off for disability equipment.

if you look for a baby bath seat its like 30 quid, the same one for a child is 500 plus. it is the same just a bit more material. so i could understand double or triple even 4 or 5 times that amount but come on.

someone said it right they charge what they want because it is need now want.

Have you spoken to your councils Social Services Raptor? I used to work for my local 1 dealing with pensioners and the like. We used to arrange mobility equipment for them through the Red Cross. They might be able to help you out anyway.

My nan recently had her bathroom turned into a wetroom and from social services (i think it was anyway) coming round and the work being done, it was about 4 months, which wasn't too bad really.

Thank's for the info, she moved into her new flat at the end of June this year.

Her last flat had a walk in shower and it was perfect for her but she is now in sheltered accomodation and her new place only has a bath fitted.

Crazy really, considering it is a place for mainly disabled/elderly people.

Without reading through the rest, if you are registered disabled then you should approach your local council/social service. If not, then I'm not sure where you could turn I'm afraid.

Would you not be entitled under disability living allowance? Maybe its just cars that are allowed under the motability scheme, but seems harsh if it is.
#40
If you are receiving the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance, you can use part of your allowance to get ......

Powered wheelchair or scooter
Insurance
Extended warranty
Servicing and repairs
Tyres (excluding punctures) and batteries
Breakdown cover
