The Gift of Comfortable Travel: Vehicle Modification for Seniors and Parents

08 June 2018

Whether you are a caregiver who regularly shuttles seniors, or you just enjoy taking trips with your elderly parents, then why not give them the gift of comfortable travel by availing of a vehicle modification at Jamieson Auto Fit. Whether you have a sedan, station wagon, van, SUV, or a mini bus, there are many ways to modify your vehicle to make travelling for seniors and parents more comfortable.

At Jamieson Auto Fit, our experienced vehicle modification experts can help you to determine the best ways to make travelling more comfortable for your elderly passengers, by first identifying their needs. This is done by asking pertinent questions, such as the following:

  1. What types of vehicle do you have?
  2. How many passengers do you normally transport?
  3. How many times a week do you travel with them?
  4. What is the total time spent driving each trip?
  5. Does any seniors and parents have handicaps or physical limitations?
  6. How much luggage of items do you carry when travelling?
  7. Does any of your passengers require the use of a wheelchair?

The answers to these questions will help determine how to best modify your vehicle to make it more comfortable for seniors and parents to travel. The most common vehicle modifications are the ones that create more space inside vehicles, such as adding or removing seating, or creating more storage space.

Here are some vehicle modification examples below:

Add and/or remove vehicle seating – if you want to give the gift of comfortable travel, then add additional seats, or remove existing seating that will either allow for more leg room, or to accommodate specialised seats for larger, smaller, or taller persons.

Create more storage space – it is not uncommon that seniors and parents require more storage space for personal effects, especially when travelling on road trips for extended periods of time. With vehicle modifications, you can add cargo barriers, vehicle racks, or adjustable shelving to add maximum storage space for luggage, or to help organise the items within your vehicle.

Vehicle conversion for wheelchairs and scooters – if you have senior passengers that require the use of a wheelchair or scooter to get around, then our vehicle modification specialists can install remote control wheelchair lifts, automated sliding doors, swing doors, or wheelchair ramps to accommodate their needs and make their experience travelling more comfortable.

Here at Jamieson Auto Fit, we can help you give the gift of comfortable travel to your senior passengers and parents, with custom vehicle modifications that will meet their specific needs. To learn more, please contact Jamieson Auto Fit today.
