The Importance of Regular Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Maintenance

Maintaining and servicing your wheelchair accessible vehicle can help you save time and money, as well as keep you safe on the road.

When you purchase a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, it’s considered a substantial investment. When you drive it off the lot, you want to make sure you keep up with the maintenance and upkeep. Even if your car is already in great condition, the following tips can help you get the most out of your vehicle, no matter what.

Regularly Drive Your Accessible Vehicle

The first thing that comes to mind that would help everything performance-wise is to regularly drive your accessible vehicle. Letting a vehicle sit around can be pretty harmful. Keeping your vehicle on the move helps slow corrosion. 

Remember Your Accessible Vehicle Maintenance Appointments

Don’t sleep through your maintenance appointments! Keeping up with the regular maintenance schedule can help prevent costly repairs. Taking good care of your vehicle extends their overall life as well as keep them performing at their best. Your service appointments should be every six months. Keep in mind, failing to service the mobility equipment on your vehicle can lead to manufacturers denying warranty claims.
