Free UK Home Demonstration

If you would like a free* demonstration of one of our wheelchair vehicles, please contact us and we will be in touch to arrange an appointment.

We’ve put together a checklist below of some of the things you should consider before and during a vehicle demonstration, to help you decide whether a particular WAV is right for you.

Our staff may ask for wheelchair measurements (see images below) prior to a demonstration.

*UK Mainland Only

Highly Rated By Our Customers

When choosing your next vehicle, you should think about any changes over the next few years which could affect the suitability of the vehicle and consider your ongoing needs and requirements.

It goes without saying, but it’s essential that the wheelchair user is present at the demonstration itself. You’ll want to assess the suitability of the restraints, the comfort of the ride and the entry height – and of course make sure it meets your needs and preferences.

It’s also a good idea to have as many people present as possible who will be using the vehicle to get a feel for the vehicle’s functionality, space and convenience.

What do I need to know before my WAV demo?

Demonstration checklist

Wheelchair size Includes:

  • height
  • width
  • depth
  • weight.

Wheelchair weight can have an effect on the type of wheelchair restraints you will require, which may also impact the type of WAV that will be suitable. Do not worry, our sales team will do all of these calculations for you once we have established your requirements.

Things to Consider

Take your time over the demonstration and don’t be afraid to ask any questions you may have. If this vehicle isn’t quite right, we’ll try to find another vehicle that is more suited to your needs either from our New or Nearly New range.

If you have any further questions about your upcoming WAV demonstration or just want to find out a bit more, feel free to contact our team on: 0345 608 8020
