Sirus Automotive, the UK’s leading provider of Upfront wheelchair accessible vehicles, has teamed up with G5 Sports Services, the exclusive UK distributor for Strike Force, the world leading Powerchair Football Chair.

The two Midlands-based businesses who share a very similar customer base and brand ethos are delighted to start working together to help enhance their customer service and support for all customers both past and present.

The companies put the vehicles and Powerchair to the test to demonstrate you can easily transport your Strike Force Sports Chair in Sirus’ latest model the Ford Grand Tourneo Connect as well as in the rear of the ever popular Volkswagen Caddy. Sirus compact but spacious conversions also allow for additional passengers and space to carry equipment, such as a portable hoist which alongside the sports chair can be secured safely with easy to use straps.

Lenna Freeman, Commercial Manager commented “Many of our customers who drive or travel upfront are actively involved in Powerchair Football with the majority using a Strike Force Powerchair. We base our conversions on compact vehicles but ensure maximum interior space. Many people assume they have to have a large vehicle to carry additional chairs, hoists, and equipment, but our latest conversion based on the Ford is designed to offer the optimum amount of space, as well as retaining the original boot space and rear seats”.

Niamh O’Reilly, from G5 Sports Services commented “We offer our customers one to one support throughout the entire order process, from the initial fit-up and chair specification assessments to fundraising advice and aftercare services. Now with the help of Sirus we are also able to offer our customers advice on the safest and most convenient transportation options for their new chair. Through our work with Sirus and the brilliant range of vehicles they offer, we can demonstrate that you can have a compact vehicle which is fuel efficient to get to games, easy to park once you arrive, but still be able to transport your chair, equipment and other passengers without the need for a large van”.

Amy Wharton Powerchair Football Player for West Bromwich Albion Throstles uses her Sirus VW Upfront to transport her Strike Force Powerchair. Amy said “The Sirus VW Upfront enables me to travel sitting up front in my everyday powerchair and then have enough room to transport my mobile hoist and Strike Force Powerchair and Sirus fitted extra lockdown points to ensure my Strike Force is secure at all times. The Sirus VW Upfront has given me so much freedom to travel without having to worry about not having enough space to take everything I need”.
