At Brotherwood we believe in always going the extra mile to provide vehicles that fit our clients’ needs down to the finest detail – so when Diane and Stuart Grant came to us with a special request for a highly personalised version of our ‘Klastar’ Mercedes-Benz V-Class Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), we were delighted to be able to help.
One of the key requirements for the adaptation was a bespoke Orange colour scheme – son Cameron’s favourite colour. Through our partnership with specialist Mercedes-Benz VIP coachbuilders Senzati we were able to offer a full customisation to the Grant’s specifications.
“We choose Brotherwood through looking for a luxury car for Cameron – at first it was just a dream that one day hopefully we could find a luxury car for him. We came across Brotherwood through our search and even though we live in Scotland nothing was too much trouble.”
The ‘Klastar’ conversion for the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the most advanced WAV available today – with a long, flat level lowered floor, it offers unbeatable ride comfort, inclusion, and visibility for the wheelchair user. But for a truly personal finish, our partnership with Senzati takes the comfort of this amazing vehicle to another level – with a sensory LED headlining; centre touchscreen console with Apple TV, DAB radio and Bluetooth with on-board 4G multi-user wi-fi; improved soundproofing and more.
“One of the best parts is the Apple TV – Cameron can be watching it whilst music is playing for the driver. I can’t believe how smooth it is to drive, giving Cameron the upmost comfort. The panoramic sunroof is also a key feature as it allows Cameron to look out when he’s resting in his wheelchair. The sensory lighting gives him a complete calming effect and adds that extra luxury touch.”
The Grants were kept up-to-date throughout the build by regular video updates from their Brotherwood WAV consultant Andy – even down to checking the colour swatches for the bespoke bright Orange interior detailing.
“Having Andy on hand throughout for any issues or questions, no matter how small we have had throughout the full process has been a god send. It was so helpful that he brought a demonstration car for us to see and fulfilled our dream for Cameron. I couldn’t recommend the full service enough and one day (a long time away) we will order another.”
The upgrades to this incredible accessible vehicle make it a unique combination of accessibility, inclusion and style, making it a truly one-of-a-kind WAV that we were delighted to be able to deliver – just in time for Christmas!
