Our History

We were one of the first vehicle suppliers to the Motability scheme in the 1970’s and a founding member of the Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Converters Association (WAVCA), the body responsible for setting industry safety standards.

We have always remained at the forefront of design, manufacture and supply of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) and now have a proud history, spanning over 50 years, of service to our customers in the UK.

“I just wanted to thank you and all those involved in the procurement and preparation of my car. I can’t begin to explain what a difference it is going to make to my life.  I have been housebound and confined to one room for the past 3 years while waiting for my adapted house to become available and now with the addition of the car it will give back so much of my life.”
Nick Bateman

“Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your patience with me and for organising everything so seamlessly.  You have been amazing and so helpful.  The car is amazing, I could have gone and sat in there for hours just for the smell of a new car and the peace!  The whole process from start to finish has been so smooth, I would thoroughly recommend you and all your colleagues to anyone. Everyone has been so professional, knowledgeable and helpful.   Hopefully I won’t bother Gowrings too much but you always know some people are a bit harder work than others!!!!!!!  Thanks again. Lucy”
