A shortage of new vehicles is affecting wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) supplies. However, GowringsVersa Mobility can also supply used vehicles for your needs.

Converting new vehicles is one way to create wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV). However, a recent shortage of new vehicles has arisen from the semiconductor chip crisis. The shortage of chips has affected many industries, including the automotive industry. But a lack of new vehicles doesn’t have to mean that WAVs aren’t available. GowringsVersa Mobility has a growing stock of used and nearly new vehicles that have been adapted to offer full wheelchair accessibility.

About Our Used a Nearly New WAVs

We have a full range of approved used and Motability Nearly New wheelchair accessible vehicles which have been fully refurbished in our own factory, prior to being offered for sale. Our used vehicles all come with a minimum of 6-month warranty supplied by the RAC or covered by our own warranty. All of our used WAVs are available to view on our website and can be filtered with your needs and preferences. You can filter by the number of wheelchair positions and seats, the price and the advance payment required, as well as the make of the vehicle. You can clearly see key details, such as whether the vehicle is manual or automatic and how many miles are on the clock.

Nearly New WAVs

Under the Nearly New Scheme from Motability, wheelchair accessible vehicles that are less than 3 years old and in very good condition can be sold to customers who want a quicker delivery and/or are looking for a lower Advance Payment. If you choose a Nearly New WAV, you get the same benefits as when you buy a brand new vehicle with Motability but the lease agreement is 3 years, instead of the standard 5 years.

All of the Nearly New vehicles that we offer are quality checked and perfect for keeping your Advance Payment low. These vehicles are typically in great condition but perhaps have some minor cosmetic damage.

New WAVs

We still have new wheelchair accessible vehicles available too. You can browse options for small, medium, and large vehicles with space for one or two wheelchairs. New WAVs include manufacturers such as Vauxhall, Volkswagen, Ford, and Renault.
