A Carbon Black for the same price as my mobile phone contract?

For UK customers, using the four options discussed in our previous article 4 ways to break a Carbon Black Purchase into bite-size chunks you could end up paying as little as £23.33 per month for your dream wheelchair. This article discusses a few options.

How?!

Given a chair starting price of £7500 for our no-frills chair, a wheelchair services voucher, an Access To Work grant, a little help from your employer and a small finance agreement. That's how. Read on.

  • Access To Work - £2,500 is how much one of our customers received from Access To Work towards their Carbon Black.​
  • Employer Contribution - Our customers have claimed up to £2500 in match funding from their employers.
  • Wheelchair Services Voucher - Most customers who we have dealt with have been awarded £1000 - 1300 from their wheelchair service.
  • Finance Options - We've worked out a finance arrangement with a UK finance company who can loan you the remainder.

A pair of examples:

1. Like a mobile phone contract

  • £7500: Chair price
  • you pay £1200: Deposit (£1000 On Finance)
  • minus £2500: Access To Work
  • minus £2500: Employer contribution
  • minus £1300: Wheelchair Service Voucher
  • So you pay a tiny £200 cash and £23.33 per month on finance

For the same as your mobile phone contract, you could be sitting in your dream chair

2. The same monthly rate as a your TV bundle

  • £8700: A chair with carbon fibre wheels
  • you pay £1700: Deposit (£1000 or £2000 On Finance)
  • minus £2500: Access To Work
  • minus £2500: Employer contribution
  • minus £1300: Wheelchair Service Voucher
  • So you pay £700 cash and £23.33 per month (£1000) on finance or you pay £46.67 per month (£2000) on finance.

The amount you might be spending on your TV bundle, only Carbon Black gives you so much more life!

What if I don't qualify for Access To Work?

If you don't qualify for Access To Work and Employer contributions, you can finance any Carbon Black chair through our finance partner! All you have to do is pay your 20% deposit up front, then continue with affordable instalments on finance.

So, for a £7500 chair: £1500 deposit £140 per month (£6000) on finance.
