Basic modifications: Lower floors in Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles Birmingham will give more spacious head room and allow for a shorter length of ramp while increasing its angle. It also means that there will not be as much clearance from the ground. This may present a problem for you if you use a route that contains speed bumps. Because of this modification, the gas tank may have been changed out completely or modified to better fit the WAV. This likely means filling up more often at the pump and may cause a malfunction of the gas gauge. Speak with your modifier about possible differences in costs of use.
Another possible modification option may be rear suspension lowering. Operated from a rear-mounted button or battery powered control, this will reduce angling of the ramp making access easier. Having a WAV with a raised roof rather than lowered floor still gives more head room but may present a problem when it comes to vehicle height clearance. If this vehicle will not be able to clear the area where normally park, this may not be the best option for you.
