New film shows how vehicles are converted for wheelchair users

Have you ever wondered how an ordinary vehicle is converted to allow a wheelchair user to travel whilst still seated in their wheelchair? Using fascinating time-lapse filming and interviews with key industry suppliers, watch this film to see everything that goes into making a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) actually accessible for the wheelchair user.

While the actual process of converting a WAV takes anywhere from three days to several weeks, depending on the complexity, you can see the entire process from start to finish in five minutes! Our suppliers explain to you how the vehicle is converted, giving you behind the scenes footage of what goes on in the factory and why the Motability Scheme offers the best value if you’re thinking about a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.

We deliver over 7,500 WAVs to Motability Scheme customers each year, providing everyday freedom that allows wheelchair users to regain their independence and be part of the family again. Isn’t it time that you found out why we’re more than just a car leasing scheme? See more on the types and range of WAVs available to lease at
