At Motor Range, we know it’s really important to find the perfect wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) to meet all your needs. But with so much to consider and many different options, doing so can be a complex process. You might have a few questions, so we’ve answered some FAQs below to provide a helping hand...


What is a WAV? 

Wheelchair accessible vehicles are specially adapted cars which allow wheelchair users to travel as a passenger or driver. They can also be useful for car buyers in need of a large cargo area. Features of a WAV may include: 

  • Access ramps

  • Lowered floor / raised roof to assist entry 

  • Special wheelchair occupant seat belts and restraints 


Who is a WAV for? 

WAVs are designed to enable wheelchair users to travel easily and comfortably. Some people use a WAV to transport their wheelchair or scooter while they sit in a passenger seat, and others may remain in their wheelchair for the journey. 

Because WAVs are spacious and offer a lowered floor, they can also be a desirable choice for regular dog walkers, or anyone who regularly transports large items such as bikes. 


What different sizes are there? 

The weight of your wheelchair and how many passengers you usually travel with will affect the size of the WAV you need. Or, if you’ll be using your vehicle to transport big items, you should consider how much room you’ll require day to day. Options range from smaller WAVs like the Ford Tourneo Connect, to larger MPVs with seven seats.


What makes and models are available?

At Motor Range, we offer a selection of used WAVs in various makes and models. We regularly update our stock to provide you with the best choice, but if you have a particular model in mind, let us know and we’ll see what we can do. We may have the perfect vehicle just waiting in the wings!
