Living independently with support from live in carers, meet 32-year-old Luke, who is wheelchair dependent due to cerebral palsy.
Recently Luke contacted us about our Ardoo portable travel hoist, as he was planning a short break family holiday and his usual hoist was too large. The key requirements were to rent a small portable hoist that could fit in a car, and be able to lift and move Luke in the confined space of a caravan.
Michelle, Lukes’ Mum commented: “The Ardoo travel hoist was great. It was easy to fold and surprisingly easy to manoeuver.”
When asked how user friendly the portable hoist was, Luke said: “The hoist proved to work well, even with minor adjustments to the sling length, to help my family move me onto the bed. A definite two-person process that was well managed by my family.
What made the experience even better was the excellent customer service delivered by TVM Bristol & Cheltenham. I was able to try out the hoist, at home, before renting it. Following the test run, the TVM team delivered the hoist on the date and time specified, and demonstrated how to use and fold the travel hoist.
We will definitely rent the hoist again. It is small and easy to use, and the customer service from TVM Bristol & Cheltenham was superb. The rental cost and agreement suited our budget perfectly, especially as other companies expected a minimum of 10 days hire on a daily rate, which worked out more expensive than the holiday itself. We’ve already rebooked a 4-day break for 2017, and we’ll be hiring an Ardoo portable travel hoist from TVM Bristol & Cheltenham. “
