An investment in your freedom and independence
We understand that purchasing a powered wheelchair is one of the biggest and most important decisions you will make, with several different factors to consider. Everything from how and where you will use it, how it feels, how comfortable it is and any future plans have to be carefully considered, as this is an investment in your freedom and independence for the next several years.
Pricing is of course one of the biggest factors in the decision-making process. We have put this section together to outline what goes into the price of a Series 5, what you are investing in and any support that might be available.

Made to order by a dynamic team
We order parts in small batches and each Series 5 is custom-built in Scotland to the customer’s specification with our stringent quality standards.
We are a dynamic team, founded by a powerchair user. We continually find solutions to what our customers need and we love a challenge.
Cost of ownership
Owning a powerchair can be expensive, from getting new batteries every 12-18 months, to repairing damaged caster forks, armrests or footplates, to replacing controllers that have been in the rain for too long. All this adds up and a survey suggested that the average user can spend in excess of £1000 a year repairing and maintaining their powerchair.
|Series 5||Other premium powered wheelchair (with average ongoing costs)||Other premium powered wheelchair (with high ongoing costs)|
|Powered wheelchair cost||£22,500||£18,000||£18,000|
|5 year additional costs||£5,000||£8,750|
Premium parts and materials
We use high-quality premium parts and materials that are found in the automotive, marine and medical industries.
Meticulously tested in the real world with powerchair users
We can confidently say that we do more real-world testing than any other powerchair company.
Attention to detail
Everything from the battery, to the armrests, to the metals, paint and nuts and bolts used has been thought about and designed to last.
Minimal maintenance and ongoing costs
For example, our battery should last for the life of the Series 5, and the motors are maintenance-free.
We believe in our design and reliability so much that we offer a three-year warranty on everything, including the battery.
We love a challenge, whether it’s custom seating, a holder for your bow and arrow, or a way to keep your dog’s lead securely attached.
Peace of mind
We understand how absolutely vital your powerchair is to your life. Constantly repairing your freedom and independence can take its emotional toll and cause stress and hassle. Not to mention the disruption of being stuck and stranded when it lets you down.
We take reliability seriously. Alex, our founder, uses the Series 5 every single day, from morning until night, and has done since 2018, whether it’s to come to the office or go to the other side of the world (which he does more often than most!).
The design, testing and reliability of the Series 5 gives you peace of mind to get out there and do the things you want to do, without thinking or worrying about your powerchair.
We do our best to support customers’ finance needs and below is a list of how some of our customers have funded their Series 5.
Access to Work
Access to Work is a scheme that supports disabled people in work and can help pay for things you need to do your job. Some of our customers have had 60-70% of the cost of their Series 5 funded by Access to Work.
Charities can be a good way to fund a powerchair, the grants available tend to be for young people and the charity of choice often depends on a specific disability or location.
Just like when buying a car, a bank loan can be a good way to spread the payment over a longer term with low interest.
