Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles from Southern Mobility Vehicles
What Makes Southern Mobility Vehicles Different?
Southern Mobility Vehicles was formed from the personal experiences two colleagues faced as a wheelchair accessible vehicle changed the life of a relative. Seeing the freedom and joy the vehicle brought fuelled the pair to want to help others. 12 years’ on this passion lives on. Sourcing only the best used wheelchair accessible vehicles (or WAVs or mobility cars as they are sometimes known) and hearing the change they bring to our customers lives is what we set out to accomplish and why we do what we do.
We are proud of the comfortable and welcoming experience we have created at Southern Mobility Vehicles and our policy of only offering the best advice with no added pressure, after all you are probably under enough already. We believe the latter part of that statement is the most important because we want you to take your time making any decisions - after all you aren't making the decision to spend money on a mobility car because you want to, but because you need to. We want to get to know you and understand your needs so that we can inform you of the best vehicles to suit your needs - and we mean across the whole market place, not just what we have in our showroom at the time.
Even our showroom is built with our customers in mind. We have wheelchair accessible bathroom facilities on our safe and level site, which is away from the road but easy to find. The kettle is always on, so why not come and join us for a leisurely look at your next wheelchair accessible vehicle.
How Do We Source Our WAVs?
We carefully select our vehicles from only the best WAV converters we know. There are small differences between a well-designed WAV and one which is not, you may not realise what these differences are at first, say on an initial test drive where you wouldn’t notice rattling as a result of poor design, but they will quickly become a constant cause of irritation - which is the last thing we want you to be experiencing in one of our vehicles.
We favour converters such as Brotherwood, Lewis Reed, Constables, Alfred Bekker and Gowrings because the build quality is so much better than others on the market. This so you can buy with peace of mind that a wheelchair accessible vehicle purchased from us will stand the test of time. This is something we feel very strongly about, because we want you to tell us how pleased you are and the difference one of our vehicles has made to your life - these are the stories we love to hear.
We stock a huge range of mobility cars, including:
At our Chichester based showroom we always make sure we have at least 40 vehicles ready for you to view. Whether you need a vehicle that will take the largest scooter, the most advanced electric wheelchair or an all terrain chair we are confident we’ll have the right vehicle for you because we use our combined 100 years’ motor trade experience to buy a wide range of stock to meet the varying needs of our customers. Only the best converted mobility cars are purchased by our managing director - who strongly believes in quality over quantity.
As well as carefully selecting the right converters and vehicles we only buy low-mileage, clean vehicles, which we feel is always an indicator of how well a vehicle has been looked after.
Whilst we feel this ensures we are only providing the best vehicles to our customers, we can’t predict what will happen in the future and vehicles can go wrong no matter how picky we are when it comes to sourcing vehicles. What we can control, however, is how we react should this happen - we are always here to help in any way we can, we believe this is why our customers come back to us again and again.
WAV Warranty, Finance & Insurance
In order to make your journey to purchasing your new wheelchair accessible vehicle as smooth as possible we offer a full range of protection services, covering everything you need to get on the road including warranty, finance options and insurance.
We work alongside Raphael Bank, who are mobility vehicle finance specialists, to offer fuss-free finance options with low rates, which our customers often tell us are lower than the high street banks. Most importantly their paperwork is clear and easy to understand - which is of the utmost importance when we are talking about money.
Each one of our WAVs comes with at least two years comprehensive warranty, with unlimited claims and mileage. Within your national warranty you will also have two years AXA Assist with roadside recovery, onward travel and home start. Before you take delivery your vehicle will also receive a PDI service plus cambelt change if due and come to you with at least six months MOT or we’ll renew it.
We only ever recommend Fish Insurance to our customers because they specialise in wheelchair accessible vehicles, which means you can rest assured that your WAV will be fully covered should anything happen. We also have a discount code you can use, customer or not - visit our protection pages now to find out more.
Wheelchair Accessible Taxis
The taxi and private hire markets are very demanding on vehicles and is highly regulated, plus the needs of the wheelchair customer must be considered going forward too. You would probably still want the ability to carry at least five passengers and a wheelchair too when you buy your new vehicle and we can help you.
Many authorities require taxi drivers to own a vehicle less than five years old before they will consider your application and you will want a well looked after, low mileage vehicle too. We have access to a large number of clean, very low mileage VW Caddy Maxis, Peugeot Experts and other suitable makes and models that will satisfy your needs and we will get what you need within 30 days; all we need from you are the details of what you are looking for.
Why not give our business to business support manager a call to find out how it works and how you can get more vehicle for less money. After all you are in business to make money and as well as you, your vehicle is paramount to that profitability. Call us today on 01243 54 44 44 and find out how we will make this so much easier for you.
