Motability Cars Aberdeen - Getting The Right Sized Vehicle

Motability cars Aberdeen based and mobility cars Scotland are widely available. There are so many different makes, models, colours, and sizes to choose from. In this post, we deal with the latter. After all, it is imperative to choose the right size vehicle for your requirements otherwise your vehicle could be more of an inconvenience than an aid.

When buying a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV) under the Motability Scotland Scheme, you have three general sizes to choose from, quite simply; small, medium, or large. When choosing between these options, you don’t only need to consider the actual size of the vehicle, as some will offer features that others don’t. For example, the vast majority of medium WAVs will have a ramp as opposed to an electric lift. So, let’s take a look at each one in further detail. Most small WAVs have a ramp and they can typically accommodate up to four people. A lowered floor is a common feature of these vehicles, reducing the angle of the ramp and making it easier when getting in and out, while also ensuring more headroom inside the vehicle. As mentioned, medium WAVs also tend to have a ramp, but there are some that have an electric lift. These vehicles tend to seat five - seven people, and they can accommodate luggage or a bigger wheelchair if necessary. Finally, large WAVs are ideal if you tend to travel with a lot of people most of the time. They have a lift for easy entry and they can accommodate a heavy wheelchair or a lot of equipment.
