WAV Vehicle Information

WAV Vehicle

To convert an unmodified vehicle or a van differ greatly from one manufacturer to another. Modifications to convert WAV Vehicles (Wheelchair Access Vehicles) fall into two categories, the first is where the individual in a wheelchair is the driver and the second is where the individual in a wheelchair is a passenger. Bridge Street Motors specialise in wav vehicles accessible for the individual in a wheelchair as a passenger.


Wheelchair Access or WAV Conversions generally involve the following:

  • Some portion of the floor is lowered
  • Seating is modified to allow wheelchair access and is reconfigurable
  • External access added in most cases often a ramp, a lift, or turning seat
  • Suspension may be stiffened to allow extra weight of power chairs / additional weight from conversion
  • Power kneeling system is typically added to reduce the slope of the ramp (side entry conversions)
