Wheelchair Maintenance and Servicing 

If you have one of our electric wheelchairs, or power-assisted manual wheelchair systems, we recommend that you have it serviced annually. Wheelchair maintenance is crucial to ensuring that everything remains safe and reliable.   

Our Wheelchair Service

Our wheelchair maintenance service can either be done at our workshop or, in some cases, at your home if you are unable to travel to us. The service includes:

  • Visual inspection of controls and fittings.
  • Testing of controls.
  • Cleaning of all necessary parts.
  • Removing wheel hubs to inspect and lubricate relevant parts.
  • Checking and re-tightening wheel spokes as necessary.
  • Inspecting and advising on tyre condition and whether they need changing.
  • Wiping wheelchair frame and inspecting front wheels etc.

Please note: during an inspection, we may find that other components need repairing/replacing. Although parts and labour are chargeable, you can be assured that we will not commence any additional work without your authorisation.  

Annual Services

We send out service reminder letters annually, usually a month before your service is due. Once you've received your letter please contact us so that we can arrange an appointment at a time that suits you. If for any reason your wheelchair is having problems before your service is due, please contact us and we will endeavour to get your chair looked at as quickly as possible.

Vehicles and Other Equipment

We generally advise that you have your vehicle and any driving adaptations serviced annually, no matter how many miles you have covered in the interim. This is to ensure that the equipment and conversion remain safe and reliable at all times.

Maintenance includes Chair Toppers, Abi-Loaders, Spacedrive systems, Electric Brake and Gas, Hand Controls, Lifts, Feeny & Johnson controls, and so on.

If you are unable to bring your vehicle into our workshop for its service, we can arrange for one of our drivers to collect it from your home. Collection and delivery costs will depend on your postcode, so please give us a call for a quote.  

We'll send your service reminder letter around a month before your annual service is due, so please contact us as soon as you receive your letter so that we can arrange an appointment. If you move house, please let us know so that we can update our records and make sure you get your letter.   

Our technicians always work to a high standard and all adaptation equipment receives a full inspection. Motability may sometimes pay for the servicing of Spacedrive and Electric Brake and Gas systems. If this is the case, you must obtain their authority and a purchase order number - that allows us to charge them instead of you for the work.
