    Cost of a wheelchair accessible vehicle over 6 years

    I have a wheelchair accessible vehicle (Renault Kangoo) and am now in my sixth year (Motability gave me a 1 year extension).

    I was wondering the other day of the total cost of this vehicle over 6 years. Anyway the sad person that I am, I calculated it and came to the figure of 27000! This is made up of 6 years mobility component + advanced payment + conversions/adaptions –access to work contribution.

    Does this surprise people? Obviously I’m thinking quite a walk about it, since I have to decide what to do when the sixth year ends next April.

    Thanks

    The only way to know is to work out the costs privately.

    You can get a used automatic Kangoo already converted from around £8000 or a new one for upwards of £16000
    Add the Insurance, Maintenance Costs, Servicing, MoTs etc

    I'd suggest calling around some of the WAV providers and asking what stock they have, and the prices of new vehicles.
