Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles or WAV's

The gentle approach to your next wheelchair accessible vehicle

Southern Mobility Vehicles is a supplier of wheelchair accessible vehicles in West Sussex. We sell a variety of accessible minibuses and other vehicles from a number of manufacturers including Volkswagen, Kia, Renault, Fiat, Ford, Peugeot, Citroen and many more.

What makes Southern Mobility Vehicles different?

Southern Mobility Vehicles was founded by the current managing director after he saw first-hand the immense positive impact an accessible vehicle had on the life of a fellow human being. Seeing the freedom and joy this vehicle brought fuelled him to want to help others and 14 years later this passion lives on. He is still an active member of the team here and you can “Meet the Team” virtually here.

We source only the best used wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) or, mobility cars as they’re sometimes known, and hearing the change that they bring to our customers’ lives makes us incredibly happy. It’s what we set out to accomplish, and it’s why we do what we do.

Friendly, helpful service for all

We’re proud of our reputation for providing our customers with a friendly and helpful service at all times; we always apply the gentle approach with everyone who comes to see what we have on offer. Our team are always on hand to offer you the best advice with no pressure.

We believe the latter part of that statement is most important because we want you to take your time making any decisions; come and go as you please - after all you aren't making the decision to spend money on a mobility car because you want to, but because you need to.

Our showroom, based equidistant between Chichester and Bognor on the A29 in West Sussex 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 and, there's plenty of parking too. The kettle is always on, so why not come and join us for a leisurely look at your next wheelchair accessible vehicle.

On top of this we’re also able to deliver your vehicle free of charge in Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, Kent and London. However, if you live further afield please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will always see how we can help.

Carefully sourced, reliable WAVs for sale

We carefully select our vehicles from only the best WAV converters we know. Our professional team can spot the subtle differences between a well-designed WAV and one which is not. Many WAVs rattle which will soon become a constant cause for irritation, we know which ones these are so we don't buy them, after all this is the last thing we want you to be experiencing in one of our vehicles. Why not let us source your next vehicle for you, so you can rest assured knowing you’re in safe hands and will end up with the right vehicle for your needs!

At our West Sussex based showroom we always make sure we have at least 35 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 50 plus 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.

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 a comprehensive warranty with a full rescue package, finance options and insurance.


Each one of our WAVs comes with a two-year comprehensive warranty, with unlimited claims on unlimited mileage along with an individual claim limit of £2,000. Within your national warranty you will also have two years rescue 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 your new vehicle will come to you with at least six months MOT or we’ll renew it.


We work alongside Close Brothers who actually lend based on who you are with incredibly competitive rates and quick decisions. Our customers often tell us the rates are lower than the high street banks and they are quicker too. Most importantly their paperwork is clear and easy to understand - which is of the utmost importance when we are talking about money. Ask us for a quote for one of our WAVs.


We only ever recommend Fish Insurance to our customers because they specialise in insurance for wheelchair accessible vehicles, which means you can rest assured that your WAV will be fully covered should anything happen. Don’t forget to give them our dealer code 2487 when you call them on 0333 331 3924.
