Adaptations at Threeways Garage

Types of adaptations

Adaptations are available through Motability to make your driving, or travelling, experience as comfortable as possible. Adaptations can help you drive, stow your wheelchair or scooter, or get in and out of the car.

Access adaptations, which help you get in and out of the car

Stowage adaptations, these allow you to stow your scooter or wheelchair

Driving adaptations, to help improve your driving experience

It is strongly recommended that you work out what type of adaptation you may need before you make your final choice of car, as not all adaptations are suitable for every type of car. We will, of course help you with this, so please just contact us to arrange an appointment at the earliest opportunity. The on-site specialists will discuss the adaptations that can all be fitted locally to make life that little bit easier

 

WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE VEHICLES

A Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) is specially converted from a standard car in order to accommodate your wheelchair. This means that wheelchair users can travel while remaining in their wheelchair, either as a passenger or driver.

The size, shape and design of the WAV will vary depending on the original vehicle used for the conversion, but all WAVs have been specially designed for easy access and safe travelling.

Standard WAV features include:

  • A built-in ramp or lifts on larger vehicles
  • Access from the side or the back of the vehicle
  • A lowered floor or raised roof to allow enough headroom
  • Wheelchair tie-downs

There are three different sizes:

Small

These WAVs normally have a ramp, rather than a lift, to allow access to the vehicle. They can have at least one rear seat and can accommodate up to four including a wheelchair passenger.

Medium

If you have a larger wheelchair or regularly travel with four or more passengers or have equipment that you need to keep with you, a medium sized WAV might suit your needs.

Large

If you will be regularly travelling with many passengers and require a number of seats, or if you have a large or heavy wheelchair, or a lot of equipment that you need to keep with you, then a large WAV is probably right for you.

Types of adaptations

If you have a larger wheelchair or regularly travel with four or more passengers or have equipment that you need to keep with you, a medium sized WAV might suit your needs.

We appreciate that these can be quite specific based on your needs, so we would love to speak to you personally. Please contact us on 01745 825847
