When you have a disability, driving can be a task that is just too daunting and you find very difficult. Getting in and out of a car can be difficult enough let alone driving the car but here at PB Conversions we believe that every individual should have the opportunity to drive with ease and enjoy the experience.

Going on holiday or away for the weekend is something we all enjoy and when the weather starts to warm up thoughts turn to sitting on the beach or taking leisurely strolls through the countryside. One of the best ways to enjoy your journey is to drive along the country lanes admiring the wildlife. This can seem like an impossibility at times when you suffer with a disability.

Back in 2011 the Work Programme was launched with the intention of helping the unemployed back into work regardless of their capabilities. For the many of us affected by disability this was just the scheme needed to get those who were able to work back into the game.

There are so many different car adaptations that are available to ensure that people can be mobile regardless of their disability. Whether you are driving or being driven, the adaptations that can be implemented within a vehicle can ensure that you or your loved ones are comfortable and can enter and exit the car with ease.
Of course as with any modifications on a car, it’s important to ensure they are safe and in working order at all times. Fortunately, we at PB Conversions offer free servicing of mobility adaptations that we have fitted providing peace of mind for driver and passenger alike.
With a broad range of products available we can accommodate for the different needs of our customers to assist with their driving, but also with passengers that deserve a comfortable journey. Items such as hand controls, steering aids, hoists and products like the Carony Go can revolutionise driving for people with disabilities, but if they do not work effectively, then it puts lives at risk.
As with all cars that go through a standard routine service on an annual basis, this should occur with the adaptations you have on the car. Not all companies will offer this as a free service but we are committed to providing quality in both our approach to clients and our products when it comes to your vehicle.
If you feel this is something you require, but require some more information, then we at PB Conversions are more than happy to discuss your requirements further. Don’t fork out on a unique car for your needs, come and discuss how we can modify and service your vehicle so you can get back out on the road.
Our services are perfect for those within the Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and surrounding areas so feel free to call for a free, no obligation quote.Posted in Information | Tagged PB Conversions | Leave a comment February 8, 2013

Here at PB Conversions we are proud to be able to provide disabled people with the mobility provisions that allow them to reclaim their independence. Losing the freedom that able-bodied people take for granted is one of the major contributing factors to the feeling of isolation disability can evoke, and it is this issue that Motability have been tackling with the Motability Scheme since 1978.
We do a lot of work for Motability, but what exactly is this scheme that currently helps over 600,000 people, and how does it work?
The Motability Scheme was set up to allow disabled people affordable access to transportation that had the potential to change their lives, and in the 34 years since its foundation it has helped over 3 million people lease cars, scooters or powered wheelchairs.
Although the key component to the Motability Scheme is the brand new vehicle it provides every three years, the benefits of joining don’t stop there.
When you sign up you will also receive:
• Insurance cover from RSA Mobility;
• Servicing, maintenance and breakdown assistance, including windscreen replacement or repair;
• Many adaptations where necessary, often at no extra cost.
Understanding whether you are eligible for the scheme is simple, and all you require is to be a beneficiary of the Higher Rate Mobility Component (HRMC) of the Disability Living Allowance (currently £54.05 per week), or the War Pensioner’s Mobility Supplement (£60.40). Note that the DLA will be changing next April to the Personal Independence Payment (PIP). Keep an eye out on our newsfeed for more information regarding these changes.
You will need to have at least 12 months’ of your HRMC award length remaining to lease a car through the mobility scheme, however it is important to remember that no other parts of the DLA will be affected.
At PB Conversions we provide support to people who wish to enjoy greater mobility in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding counties. If you’d like to find out more about the services we can offer you can get in touch with our team on 01525 850 588, alternatively you can complete our online contact form and we’ll get back to you.Posted in Mobility | Tagged mobility Buckinghamshire | Leave a comment September 12, 2012
For many people up and down the UK, disability is something that robs you of your freedom and stops you from doing the things that fully-fit people take for granted. However, here at PB Conversions we don’t believe that just because you’re disabled you should miss out on life’s simple pleasures, and we pride ourselves on helping people get out and about. So if you’ve always thought that driving would never be something you would be able to do, read on as we look at the innovative and life-changing hand controls Hertfordshire disabled people have been using to reclaim their freedom.
