If you notice that you, or your elderly parent, is starting to use their car a little less than they used to, it may be worth asking the question – is it worth keeping?
Now that Good Oaks Drivers offers a personal driving service, as well as supporting people at their destination if required, it may be time to cash in on your under-used car.
Instead of using taxis, or even disabled taxis in Poole, Bournemouth or Christchurch, regularly, with Good Oaks Drivers you see the same friendly face again and again. This means you get to know your Driver, so getting out and about is something to look forward to rather than a chore or stressful experience.
The Money Advice Service says that an average sized Ford costs £2,000 a year to run, excluding depreciation costs.This includes maintenance, MoT tests, insurance and fuel.
That means even if you were to use a Driver twice a week on average, you’d still save money on your travel, as well as having all the advantages that the service brings.
There are many taxis and disabled taxis in Bournemouth and Poole, but this means you can get an impersonal service, and can’t be sure about their training or communication skills. Our Drivers are trained in safeguarding, moving and handling, communication, dementia awareness and much more.
