Adapted Car Hire
Adapted Car Hire provides a broad range of specially adapted vehicles to cater for the needs of disabled drivers and passengers. Vehicles can be hired on a daily, weekly and monthly basis and we provide a door-to-door delivery and collection service.
We categorise our vehicles based on size, and all of our vehicles are available with Push Pull Hand Controls and Left Foot Accelerators. The vehicles are all fully automatic and can also be used in the conventional way. All of our vehicles come with a Radar Key which provides access to some 7,000 locked public toilets across the country.
