WAV stands for wheelchair accessible vehicle, they are like your traditional vehicle but have been specially adapted and converted to include a wheelchair. The wheelchair accessible vehicles available nowadays mean that the wheelchair user is able to travel one of two ways, as a passenger or as a driver.
Our team at WAVS GB understand the stress and struggle that comes with searching for the perfect WAV – this is why we tailor our Wheelchair Car Weston-Super-Mare service to suit your needs and provide the best level of service to you.
There are two main types of WAV – Passenger WAV’s and Drive From Wheelchair Vehicles (DFWs) it is important to weigh up the two options as one may be more suited to your needs now but those needs may change in the future. Our advice is to plan ahead and think about how you will want to use your WAV now and in the coming years.
Passenger WAV’s are wheelchair accessible cars that have been adapted so that a wheelchair user will be able to travel as a passenger in a car in their wheelchair meaning that there is no need to be transferred from the wheelchair into a car seat.
The alternative to a passenger WAV is known as a DFW what this stands for is Drive From Wheelchair vehicles. As the name suggests this involves adapted vehicles that are converted to allow for wheelchair users to drive a WAV. In order for this to happen the car must be changed and adapted to suit the needs of the wheelchair user who will be the one driving the vehicle. WIth this option, the cost is a vast amount higher and the WAV can take a longer time than the more traditional passenger WAV.
Wheelchair cars are not supplied by every car manufacturer and there are seven main car brands that we use for our wheelchair accessible vehicles if you want to find the full list of wheelchair accessible vehicles on WAVS GB then check the sale or hire pages.
