Medical appointments – we will pick you up at home and take you to your appointment, accompanying you into the clinic or hospital to make sure you get to the right place. We can wait for you, or leave our card with reception who will phone us when you are finished. Liaising between medical staff and family – if requested we can attend an appointment with you to provide extra support.
ACC funded transport
– all our drivers are ACC registered vendors. We transport ACC claimants to their medical appointments, to work and in many cases we take children to school if the ACC claimant is unable to do so. If you are an ACC client let your case manager know that you would like to use Freedom for your transport needs.
Scenic drives & social engagements – book a driver to take you out for a scenic drive. Its great to get out and about especially if you have been unable to drive for a while. You might like to out to lunch with a friend or attend a social gathering. Or ask your Freedom Driver to take you and a friend to a movie and pick you up afterwards.
Shopping & personal grooming – we can drive you to the shops and come in and help you do your shopping and carry your bags if you need us to. We can stop off at the pharmacy, pick up a takeaway meal on the way back, and even come in and help you pack your shopping away if you would like us to. We are also happy to take you to personal grooming appointments – the hairdresser or beauty parlour and pick you up afterwards.
Total Mobility Service
– in most areas we are able to take the NZTA funded Total Mobility cards or vouchers (taxi chits) which allows you the appropriate discount on your fare. Ask your local driver for details.
Children’s safe school transport – if you need reliable safe transport for your children for school runs, to school and after school – look no further. We do not just drop children off outside a school, we park the car and always accompany them inside to make sure they are taken to a specific place or or handed over to a specific person just like you would do if you were driving your children yourself.
After school activities & sports – we know how hard it is to juggle all the transport children often require. You may need to take one child to ballet, another to football and another somewhere else. This can be problematic if parents or caregivers are working full time. We can collect children from school and take them to their sports and activities or just bring them home as needed. Children will always be accompanied to the correct place and/or booked in with the right person.
Wheelchair accessible vehicles
– we are able to provide wheelchair vehicles in some areas. Please check our driver details to see if a wheelchair accessible vehicle is available in your area.
Airport drop off & pickups – the usual transport but with extras. We will come to your door at home and assist you with your bags. At the destination we will assist with all luggage and accompany you inside the airport/ bus or train station to make sure you check in with no problems if you need us to.
Business travel – Freedom Drivers area a great choice for meetings, conferences and other business transport. Perhaps you are here on a conference and your partner would like to take a scenic drive or do some shopping whilst you are busy. Perhaps you would like a driver to pick up after conference or a meeting and drop you at a restaurant.
Travel with pets – we are happy to transport you and your guide dog or assistance dog. We frequently assist people to take their pets to the vet or kennels. Just give your driver a ring and explain what you need.
