Wheel Wellies, Universal Wheel Covers for Wheelchairs Reviews

Arrived well packaged.  Really good concept, as it stops the car boot getting dirty. Instructions are clear. These were easy to fit onto the wheelchair wheels. Once fitted they were secure. The Velcro straps worked very well. Once these are fitted it certainly protected our car and home from mud or dirt accumulated on the wheelchair wheels while out and about. these would not fit the Caster wheel, they are only suitable for the larger back wheels. Which is unsuitable as the car still gets dirty. We used these 3-4 times. Mainly used these when transporting wheelchair. This is a good quality product. It would be good value if there was ones to also cover the front caster wheels. I liked that this is a good quality product and universal fit with a carry pouch.  I would buy this product as helps keep the car clean. I would recommend due to being good quality and keeps car clean and is universal fit. The only thing we felt let this product down was the lack of covers for the front caster wheels, if this had been included I would have given 5/5.  The lack of cover for the front wheels was the only thing that let this product down, it is a very good product and kept the car boot clean, we wrapped the wellies around front and back , which was our only solution, this does leave large parts of the wheels exposed so will not keep car totally clean. A possible improvement might be having poppers instead of Velcro, as Velcro after some time will wear out. Natasha Shaw – Elizabeth 6 Years

I was really excited to try these, I really hoped they’d be the answer to muddy floors and car boots.  Good idea as we are always out and about and nice to have something to keep the dirt intake down. Instructions were easy enough to follow. These were easy enough to fit on and once fitted were secure with the Velcro fastenings. These fitted onto the main large wheels and certainly reduced the amount of muck and dirt that would normally be left in car boot or wheeled into the hall of our house.  However, wheelchairs have two sets of wheels and it would be more beneficial if these came in a set for both large and small wheels giving you full protection. These are good as we have two different wheelchairs and they easily fitted both. I used these a couple of times each week. Would use these when taking Nathan out for walks and to see his family. The quality is very good and they are well made and durable. I liked how easy they were to fit and the fact they did reduce dirt in the home and car. I would buy these if I saw them with covers for all the wheels on the wheelchair as this seems more logical. I have mentioned to a few friends who would have a need for this sort of item.  A great idea and does work btu with a few more improvements this would be the ideal accessory for any family who has children using wheelchairs.

Impressed with packaging as well packaged and could easily see how to use. Liked the concept as when travelling with my daughter to get her out and about always a concern how much dirt comes off the wheels in the car and through the front door. Instructions clear and precise. Very easy to fit onto wheels of our wheelchair and Velcro fastenings kept these securely fitted. Noticed a vast improvement on the amount of dirt appearing in car boot and home. These are a good universal fit but for the larger wheels and all our wheelchairs have caster wheels that still pick up dirt. We did use these regularly each week and the larger wheels do tend to pick up more dirt. Used when taking our daughter out for walks and visiting family. Good idea to have carry pouch very handy. I would buy these as they do work but with a few minor adjustments they would be ideal for any wheelchair users. I have been asked about these and recommended as they do help. This is a good quality product but the design needs to be improved to incorporate covers for all the wheels.  Great idea and works well but could be better. Michael Parker – Susanna 5 Years
