Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles

Wheelchair accessible vehicles are either specifically designed for wheelchair users or have been converted by accessibility specialists to allow a disabled person to travel in their wheelchair.

The most common type of wheelchair accessible vehicle is a large van or “people-carrier” that has been modified with a lower floor and either a foldable ramp or electrically-powered lift attached to the rear.

Wheelchair accessible vehicles sometimes referred to as WAV, can allow wheelchair users and disabled people to travel safely and comfortably in their wheelchairs. Some WAVs even allow wheelchair users to drive themselves, thanks to specialist adaptations.

WAVs will almost always cost more than standard cars or vans due to the fact that there are often multiple companies, different materials and hours of labour needed on top of the base cost of the car to successfully convert them. However, if you don’t need a specially designed wheelchair accessible vehicle, you can find a variety of smaller accessible improvements to update your existing vehicle.

Here you’ll find a range of wheelchair accessible vehicles from the leading suppliers in the industry.
