Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles: Everything You Need to Know
Also known as WAVs, a wheelchair accessible vehicle offers more freedom, flexibility, safety, and comfort to the mobility impaired. The term is used to describe any vehicle (car, minivan, or bus) that has been adapted to cater for wheelchair users.
The majority of these are adapted for disabled passengers, rather than drivers, although the latter is also possible and usually comes with a higher degree of customisation. Passengers should be able to enter the vehicle in their wheelchair using a ramp or lift to one of the rear or side doors. Meanwhile, driver-adapted cars have additional adaptations so that a disabled person can either drive directly from their wheelchair or enter the driver’s seat from an internal transfer.

In light of recent COVID-19 developments, we have taken the difficult decision to stop taking any further orders for the hire of mobility equipment with the exception of beds (see below).
Our suppliers make every effort to effectively clean all products before they are sent out again but nevertheless, we feel that it’s best to take a prudent approach and not re-use mobility equipment for the time being.
The situation is obviously not ideal but we feel that this is necessary to ensure the safety of our service users, the community in general and staff throughout the handling process. We will of course keep you updated with the situation and let you know once normal service can be resumed.
One of our suppliers has assured us that during this difficult period, they are able to fulfil our demand for bed hire. Prices include delivery, collection and decontamination.
