Wheelchair Access WAV Explained
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles (WAV) Disability Cars.
Mymobility Vehicles have a range of specialist, high quality, low mileage wheelchair vehicles for wheelchair users. We stock a range of specially adapted wheelchair accessible vehicles, also known as WAV vehicles or disability vehicles from our location in Brede, East Sussex (just outside of Hastings).
What does WAV mean?
WAV is the abbreviated term for Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle and refers to a vehicle which has been specially converted to carry a wheelchair. WAV's give people the freedom to get out and about whilst minimising the fuss and troubles normally associated with wheelchairs. Whether it's a trip to the shops, a day out or visiting family & friends, a WAV vehicle enables a great degree of freedom. Owning a WAV vehicle ensures this freedom is in your control and opens a whole new world of mobility options without being dependent on others.
What is a WAV mobility vehicle?
A WAV is a specially converted vehicle, authorised conversion companies take a new vehicle and carry out a series of adaptations to finish the conversion. The conversion process is in depth and often includes lowered floors, custom made exhaust systems, lightweight ramps, front/rear wheelchair straps, wheelchair winch installation and other similar customised installs. Most of the WAV's we have for sale come direct from Motability and generally are very low mileage, high quality examples of wheelchair accessible vehicles.
Conversions found on WAV vehicles.
Some WAV conversions can also contain additional modifications such as hand controls, flip pedals or assisting devices to help introduce freedom for those users with additional requirements. We are able to assist and source vehicles to cover a wide range of disabilities and can retrofit some modifications to our existing sales vehicles.
Wheelchair users often find mobility to be restricted or limited, especially when attempting to navigate the local towns via public transport, especially during rush hour or public holidays. Owning a wheelchair vehicle (WAV) can help ease the pressure, make life more comfortable and more importantly provide access to independence and freedom. For many disabled users, owning and using a WAV vehicle provides the optimal mobility and convenience, especially as mobility services such as adapted taxi's can be costly and hard to come by.
Below is a common list of options you can find on many of our mobility WAV wheelchair vehicles:
- Hydraulic rear suspension for easy access.
- Drive from Wheelchair with EZ locking system.
- Electronic hand controls.
- Automatic transmission.
- Remote control for opening of tailgate and ramp.
- Flexible Up-front Wheelchair configurations.
- Flexible able bodied seating configurations.
- Direct from Motability with Full Main Agent Service History.
