Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles – Gravesend

Which is the Most Suitable WAV for me?

WAV stands for Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, and is simply a car that has been converted such that it can carry a wheel chair user with ease or allow a wheelchair user to drive it while they remained seated on their wheelchair. These vehicles appear as other normal vehicles on the outside but they are fitted with some features to make it easy for a wheelchair user to access and ultimately drive it. Choosing an adapted car has always been difficult for most people especially if you don’t know what to look for.

Actually, when it comes to selecting a wheelchair adapted vehicle, there are various features available that can make your driving experience a pleasure. Well, not all features come as part of the conversion; you may need to pay a little extra to have some of the features fitted to your adapted car if you need them.

These are adapted vehicles fitted with a ramp to make the vehicle accessible to the wheelchair user. They can carry up to 4 people with the wheelchair user included. They normally have a lowered floor to make movements in and out of the vehicle a lot easier.


Medium adapted cars best suit those with a larger wheelchair or usually travel with a lot of luggage or carry four or more people regularly. Most of these WAVs are fitted with ramps but there are a few that are fitted with lifts. These kinds of wheelchair accessible vehicles carry more than five people with the wheelchair user included.


Large WAVs are most suitable for those who have a large wheelchair, carry heavy luggage and travel with a lot of passengers more often. Large WAVs can have a lift or a ramp depending on your choice. However, WAVs with lifts usually cost more than the normal ones.
