What to look for in a WAV
When looking for a wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) in the UK, there are several important factors to consider. Here are some key features to look for:
Ramp or Lift - Check if the vehicle has a ramp or a lift that allows easy access for a wheelchair. Ensure that the ramp or lift is sturdy, reliable, and can handle the weight of the wheelchair and the occupant.
Interior Space - Look for a vehicle with ample interior space to accommodate the wheelchair user comfortably. Consider the dimensions of the wheelchair and ensure that there is enough room for maneuverability.
Accessibility Features - Check for features that enhance accessibility, such as lowered floors, adjustable seating positions, and removable seats. These features can provide flexibility and make it easier to secure the wheelchair in the vehicle.
Safety and Security - Ensure that the WAV has proper wheelchair restraints and seatbelts to secure the wheelchair and the occupant during transit. Additionally, consider features like anti-slip flooring, grab handles, and good visibility to enhance safety.
Conversion Type - There are different types of conversions available, such as rear-entry or side-entry conversions. Each type has its own advantages and considerations, so evaluate which one suits your needs and preferences.
Maintenance and Warranty - Check the maintenance requirements of the vehicle and inquire about warranty coverage. It's important to have a reliable WAV that is backed by a reputable manufacturer or converter.
Comfort and Convenience - Consider the comfort features offered in the vehicle, such as climate control, adjustable seats, and accessible controls. Look for additional amenities that can enhance the overall travel experience.
Fuel Efficiency and Range - Evaluate the fuel efficiency of the vehicle, especially if you plan to use it frequently. Consider the range it can cover on a single tank of fuel or charge, as this can impact your travel plans.
Budget - Determine your budget and research the prices of different wheelchair accessible vehicles. Keep in mind that additional modifications or customisations may affect the overall cost.
Test Drive and Inspection - Before making a final decision on a wheelchair accessible vehicle, take the vehicle for a test drive and thoroughly inspect it for any potential issues or damages. It's always recommended to involve a qualified mechanic or expert to assess the vehicle's condition.
