How to get a home medical equipment store to give you a home-made ambulance and a car with a medical kit to transport it to the hospital.
If you can’t find a home shop to deliver the ambulance, or if you are the only person who wants one, here’s what you can do.1.
Call the local ambulance and ask for a list of licensed businesses that can deliver the equipment to your home.2.
Ask for a discount on the cost of the ambulance and car if you have an emergency.3.
Ask about availability and make arrangements with the nearest store if they don’t have the ambulance.4.
Ask the local fire service for a supply of a vehicle that will fit into your garage and you can drive it to your house.5.
You can also get a loaner ambulance from a friend or family member.
If all else fails, you can make an appointment with a licensed ambulance service, such as the South East Ambulance Service, to get the equipment from your local shop.
