Cartwright Conversions is expanding into the consumer market for the first time to sell a range of wheelchair accessible vehicles directly to disabled motorists and passengers.
Popular in the business to business market for welfare and police vehicles, including a wide range of ambulances, the company have now created a new range of conversions for individuals.
The Yorkshire-based vehicle converter is part of the Cartwright Group: a family-owned business with over 65 years’ experience in manufacturing and body building in the automotive industry.
This is the first time in ten years that a new vehicle converter has been accepted onto the Motability Scheme, which sets high standards for its approved suppliers on the quality and safety of wheelchair accessible vehicles.
With more than 650,000 customers, the Scheme helps people living with disabilities to achieve independence by providing them with an affordable way to lease a mobility vehicle.
Cartwright Mobility offers rear passenger wheelchair accessible vehicles which seat between six and eight people on four base models: a Ford Transit, Ford Custom, Ford Connect and Renault Trafic.
The range of vehicles has been designed by mobility experts to accommodate the whole family comfortably with plenty of spare room for extra luggage and equipment.
Steve Shaw, Commercial and Operations Director at Cartwright Mobility said: “We are delighted to have been accepted onto the Motability Scheme as an approved supplier of WAVs.
“It gives us the opportunity to provide more people with high quality vehicles so they can enjoy the freedom of the open road regardless of personal budget and individual requirements.”
All of the vehicles are converted in a dedicated facility in Doncaster and have passed strict safety measures set by the UK’s governing body for WAVs.
Cartwright is offering three years warranty as standard and a premium aftercare package which includes a yearly health check on the vehicle’s conversion and access to a free smartphone app.
The App is designed to give customers information specific to their own mobility car, including a calendar for servicing reminders and ‘how to’ user manuals at the touch of a button.
