I want to thank you and Igor for the standard of service I have found at Abiliquip. Many people do not know how to talk to someone with a disability. And they will look everywhere else than at me. At Abiliquip I felt people addressed me directly, responded to my questions, understood my needs and suggested entirely appropriate modification solutions. I have nothing but praise for your service and will tell that to others.


Just to let you know that I love the Abiloader! It has opened a new door to my future freedom to enjoy getting out and visiting people and places rather than avoid it because of the hassle of lifting my chair out and in!

My wife also enjoys just getting in and out of the car when we are out together rather than wait out in the rain while I put my chair in the back seat so thumbs up all round!


It’s just over a month since I got my own personal robot now called Abe, so I thought I’d say thanks as it has made a huge difference to my independence.
The Abiloader is fantastic I can now get into and out of the house, work etc unassisted, in the rain or on windy days it is even better. I even get an audience of onlookers when I deploy outside the supermarket. I have no hesitation in telling them it was built in NZ by a company in Christchurch.
Thanks again for your help.


During all this time, the lift was a great success. Lili used it often and the rest of us used it as a quick step into the caravan. It also makes a great outdoor coffee table and pleasant place to sit. At one point at the end of the day when Lili was tired I was “lifting” her into the camper, and we both said spontaneously at the same time, “Thank you Michael.”

Wow what fantastic hand controls! I have been using hand controls for 22 years now and this time I used Abiliquip to fit these to my vehicle. They are by far the most stylish and most comfortable hand controls that I have driven with. I found that Igor genuinely cared that the end result was comfortable for me to drive with and he took my ability into consideration when fitting them. I am left with really nice looking hand controls and an easy to use indicator system which looks great and matches in seamlessly with my vehicle. These guys obviously care greatly about their work.

I would highly recommend that if you need modifications to your next vehicle, that you take the time to meet with the team at Abiliquip to discuss your requirements.


When I was thinking about buying one (Abiloader) … it seemed too good to be true, but the thing really works as advertised. It allows my daughter to easily get her chair in the car quickly and completely independently. No taking it apart, lifting it, getting dirty, wearing out her shoulders, etc.!

It is on the expensive side, but … It makes her life so much easier and better. Worth every penny!


I thought I’d touch base having had the Abiloader for a week now. The loader is absolutely fantastic!! It will make such a difference to my daily life and to the tendonitis in my wrist, not to mention no more throwing my chair over my shoulder into the rear seat.
It is a wonderful, life-altering device!


I have recently had hand controls fitted to my new car by Igor at Abiliquip. The workmanship is excellent (even my perfectionist husband was impressed). Igor was very helpful in explaining everything and took the time to find out what I wanted, not just what was available. He knows the requirements and the process for certification which made the whole job go very smoothly. I would recommend this company without hesitation.


I wish to say how delighted we are with you people correcting the very real problem we had with the Ezylock system in our disabled son’s adapted van.

Ever since this was installed in the van (by someone else) we had problems. The chair wouldn’t easily engage in the system and we had to pull and push the chair putting not only a lot of strain on the frame but our poor son was also shaken.

Even then we couldn’t be sure the system would hold him and often whilst transporting him it would disengage putting our son at risk.

We took the van and wheelchair on three separate occasions to the person who installed it and each time we continued to have the same problem.

We were so impressed by the ease at which we got a time to have your company look at it – and more so to have the problem dealt with entirely. We came away amazed at the speed it was dealt with and the competency of your company.

We most certainly would recommend you to others

It is now nearly a week since I took delivery of my new Zafira, so I thought I should let you know how pleased I am with the Abiloader. It is living up to all my hopes and expectations.

Without your skill, ingenuity and determination to make it work, I am sure this would not have been possible. Your attention to detail in adjusting and modifying not only the Abiloader, but also my wheelchair was first class practical engineering of the highest order. I am very happy if you want to use me as a reference for any future potential customers or the Abiloader


Igor installed hand controls, parking sensors and modified my handbrake to make it easier for me to use. I’ve had this type of work done on previous cars by other companies but there was no comparison. The modification work done by Igor was of the highest quality and at a better price than the other companies I had used in the past. I could also quite easily restore the car to its original state, this was not possible with previous installations.

Igor has also helped me out with modifications to my lawn bowls wheelchair. Although this is not the type of work he normally does he was happy to help.
He is full of ideas and solutions to the everyday problems people with disabilities face. A fantastic engineer who I am delighted to recommend.
