Motability is well supported by the UK’s leading conversion and wheelchair accessible vehicle companies. Here, some of the leading figures in the industry tell us why they’re proud to be connected with the disability community and Motability.

Accessible Vehicles

At Accessible Vehicles we understand the importance of a wheelchair accessible vehicle to our customers and that a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not suit everybody.

Offering bespoke solutions for both rear and upfront wheelchair travel, we offer some of the most innovative conversions available on the market. These include the Infront range of vehicles – which allow a wheelchair user to travel upfront yet retain the original boot space, and the LDV G10 – a truly affordable luxury wheelchair accessible vehicle.

Our friendly and experienced staff are on hand for advice on the Motability scheme and for all aspects of buying an adapted vehicle.

Steve Truesdale, Sales Manager

Bristol Street Versa

We have been providing wheelchair accessible vehicles to customers on the Motability Scheme for over 25 years. It is our absolute privilege to assist our customers and their families with their mobility needs. We understand that finding the right vehicle can sometimes be a daunting task, especially for those customers moving from a Motability car into their first WAV, and this is why we offer expert advice and friendly service to ensure a smooth and trustworthy relationship with our customers.

We are proud that according to Judge Service, an independent source, “100% of Bristol Street Versa customers would recommend them to a friend”.

Jo Ellison, General Manager

Cartwright Mobility

Cartwright has over 65 years’ experience of engineering bespoke vehicles for thousands of customers across the UK. This gave Motability the confidence to add us to their scheme last year as an approved supplier of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) and adaptations. We are proud to say that we were the first converter to be added to the Scheme in over 10 years and this is testament to our ability to design and build functional, stylish WAVs. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and we are working hard to surpass their expectations with things like our free downloadable phone app for 24-hour customer support.

Steve Shaw, Managing Director

Sirus Automotive

Sirus is the UK’s leading provider of independent wheelchair driver and wheelchair passenger upfront vehicles. Our unique range of vehicle conversions and adaptations are designed to give our customers freedom and independence. Sirus was established in 2004 with a vision to design high quality, innovative products, backed up by unrivalled aftersales service. Some 15 years later, we have designed 14 different conversions and are proud of the product innovation we bring to the mobility market. Our primary focus at Sirus is our customer service. Our customers return to us time and time again, which for us is the most rewarding part of it all.

Lenna Freeman, Commercial Manager


Brotherwood have been creating special purpose vehicles for wheelchair users across the UK and beyond for over 30 years. Our expertise and experience mean that every one of our clients can expect a special level of customer care and service when they acquire one of our vehicles – at every stage, from an initial consultation with our advisors, to the vehicle demonstration at their home, the home delivery, and ongoing at-home annual service visits.

Our vehicles are handcrafted for a very special purpose – and each one is as important to us, as it is to our clients, who can enjoy comfortable, inclusive and safe travel with their families.

Congratulations to Able Magazine – we have been ever-present within the publication since the very beginning, 25 years ago and together have proudly promoted the independence of disabled people across the UK.

John Daniel, Managing Director

Peter Scullion, Managing Director


Our long-standing partnership with Motability plays a key role in our business. We convert all our vehicles with intelligence, empathy and care and all are tested to carry 200kg wheelchairs. On our VW Caddy, Ford Tourneo and Citroen Berlingo we fit a continuous rear door seal offering what we believe to be the quietest and warmest vehicles. Adding to our range, we will launch the new VW T6 range, Drive from and Internal Transfer Vehicle at Naidex 2019. It is my belief that all drivers and passengers are entitled to the same level of safety and comfort which is why we put such great emphasis on design and development.

David Donnell, Managing Director


For more than 40 years, Motability has been providing the most generous vehicle leasing scheme in the world for disabled people.

The Scheme supports disabled people to achieve greater independence, through access to affordable, worry-free mobility. Customers can lease cars, scooters and powerchairs, as well of course, as wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVS) to disabled people in exchange for their mobility allowance.

Motability is still passionate about improving the lives of their 650,000 customers and their families, and focus on meeting their needs. Not only do they offer unbeatable value by negotiating highly competitive rates from major vehicle manufacturers on a quarterly basis, they also provide award-winning customer service – with all profits reinvested into the Scheme for the benefit of customers. Indeed, the charitable aspect of Motability also provides financial help to disabled people who would otherwise be unable to afford the vehicle or adaptation they need.
