What to Do With Your Old Wheelchair

What to do with your old wheelchair

Many clients at RollX Vans often ask us what they can do with an old wheelchair they no longer need. There are luckily a number of programs that accept used wheelchairs to help those in need—which is important because a new wheelchair can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000. This might not be a manageable cost for some people, especially as they deal with medical bills.

Wondering what to do with your old wheelchair? Just get in contact with a wheelchair recycling program that you feel is a good fit.

Here are some of the programs you should consider:

If you are donating a wheelchair to one of these programs or another similar program, consider a few of these tips:

  • Make sure the wheelchair is in usable condition.
  • Check the organization’s website for specific details regarding the donation. When in doubt, call the organization, which will be happy to assist.
  • If you are not near one of the listed organizations, reach out to other local charities, churches, or hospitals, which might be able to help you out.
  • Remember to deduct the donation on your taxes.

Your wheelchair donation could make a world of difference to somebody in need!
