Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles From Brotherwood®

The UK's Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Specialists



About Brotherwood®

Brotherwood® have been manufacturing Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles since 1985. Our attention to detail, customer care and commitment to quality mean our ‘WAVs’ carry an excellent reputation across the world. Brotherwood® are regarded as the pioneers of the modern ‘Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle’, changing the perception of disabled transport from conspicuous high-roof vans to discreet everyday wheelchair cars.

Our accessible cars enable wheelchair passengers to travel in comfort, inclusively and safely; sitting closely with other passengers within the vehicle, with a comfortable ride and good visibility. Our wheelchair-friendly vehicles are discreet and stylish. View our new wheelchair accessible vehicles for sale, or browse our approved used mobility cars. Brotherwood wheelchair cars are also available via Motability, or short or long term hire with variable rental periods.

ENGINEERING TO ENABLE

The Brotherwood® Difference

Explore the unique benefits of a Brotherwood® Wheelchair Accessible Car:

Comfortable Ride

When designing our WAVs, we place emphasis on wheelchair passenger comfort, ensuring that the wheelchair travels in the centre of the vehicle, on a level floor. Sitting centrally creates a smoother ride, with a naturally ergonomic seating position.

Inclusive Design

The lowered floor and central wheelchair position of a Brotherwood® conversion enables wheelchair users to travel inclusively with family and friends. Up-front next to the driver, or between the passenger seats, wheelchair users travel as part of the group.

Safety Accredited

Each WAV we manufacture is tested to the highest possible standards for wheelchair passenger safety, ensuring peace of mind. Even wheelchairs up to 190kg can travel safely. Our safety accreditations include European Type Approval and PAS-2012.

Expertly Engineered

Although our conversion process is extensive, our wheelchair passenger vehicles blend discretely with unadapted cars on the road. Take a look at our manufacturing process, and see what goes into making a Brotherwood wheelchair adapted car.
