Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle

What is a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle?

Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAVs) have been converted by mobility experts to allow a disabled passenger to travel in their wheelchair, either as a passenger or a driver. The vehicle floor is lowered and a foldable ramp or an electrically-powered lift is fitted to the vehicle. This allows the wheelchair user to enter via the rear or side of the car. Disabled people, of course, each have different needs and it’s so important to make sure that wheelchair vehicle conversions contain the right options to suit these needs.

How WAVs are constructed

All Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles start as a standard vehicle and then a specialist engineering company makes a number of fairly significant alterations to allow a wheelchair user to access and remain in their wheelchair when the vehicle is moving. The size, shape, and design of the WAV will vary depending on the original vehicle used for the conversion and the specialist company that has converted it, but all WAVs have easy access and provide safe travelling for the wheelchair user.
