Today's good Samaritan award goes out to physical therapist Rick Shutes, who's launched a helpful Web site for the disabled at HandicapAutoTrader.com.
Shutes and his wife Lizzie say they had first-hand experience with how difficult it was to find a handicap-accessible vehicle. So in January, they launched HandicapAutoTrader.com to create an easy way to sort though new or used vehicles that have been modified to be used by the handicapped.
HandicapAutoTrader.com allows buyers to search all the vehicles on the site for free, and there is staff available to call or email with any questions. Sellers on the site have the availability to list their vehicles with up to three images for free, as the site builds inventory. After August 31st of this year, the cost will be $39.
HandicapAutoTrader.com allowed visitors to search by the features they may need. There's also an “Easy Compare Vehicles” feature on the site, which enables shoppers to compare vehicles side by side without having to read through each sellers' list and compare old-school. The search engine on the site also allows shoppers not only to search through features, but also by make, model, body style, year, mileage, or price.
