Looking to put an order in for a new car next month so trying to pin down some of the cost.
I know I won’t get a cost for the AP until Q3 prices are release but having not visited the adaption cost page on Motability for a few months I’ve notice a few changes there in.
One of the new things to change is the prices now cover 6 months with the current dates going from 1st April – 30th September 2021 so looks like I will be paying £445 for the Lodgesons 7 way remote control I need with the prices in the past for this item being somewhere between £275 and £350 variable and £333 last change over.
Worst to come is despite Motability saying you can transfer your hoist at no cost it now says “at no cost or where there is a cost it will be significantly lower than getting a new adaption”.
Then it says “In order to transfer any suitable adaption to your car, dealer must add the relevant transfer kit to the application”.
All very fine but having looked at the adaption price list today nearly all “transfer kit” have been removed and they were there before the current price list was release the first of April, at least for the Autochair LC Range of hoists it was for sure.
Its bad enough trying to budget for future costs with AP’s being picked out of a Tombola never mind moving the goal post too with adaptions.
Anyone who ordered a hoist transferred since April this year I would love to know how you got on.
