Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles at Berringtons

Berringtons is based in Pokesdown in the Poole - Bournemouth - Christchurch conurbation. We are easy to reach by both road and rail and we regularly deal with customers throughout Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire and the wider South of England. We regularly supply and deliver to an area ranging from Southampton, Basingstoke and Winchester through Salisbury and Warminster to Dorchester, Weymouth and Exeter. We are very happy to accommodate customers from further afield and we can arrange vehicle delivery to the Isle of Wight or Guernsey and Jersey in the Channel Islands.

We specialise in the supply of used Wheelchair & Mobility Scooter Adapted Vehicles (with either ramps or scooter hoists) from a wide range of models. Converted cars are available with petrol or diesel engines and manual or automatic gearboxes. Prices start from around £4,000 and we can supply cars ranging from over 10 years old up to nearly new current models which may have covered less than 5,000 miles. If required we can arrange the installation of hand controls by a local approved installer (subject to model availability and at the supplier's additional cost).

Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles

Fully converted Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles have space for a wheelchair with its occupant, or a mobility scooter, with a folding rear ramp for easy access. When fitted, a remote control electric winch will make loading and unloading the wheelchair or scooter quick, easy and very safe. This is ideal when the wheelchair handler is an older person or has reduced mobility themselves. Features sometimes available include remote control powered ramps and tailgates, or lowering suspension for easier access.

Depending on the model and specification, converted cars will typically carry either two or three passengers as well as the driver and the wheelchair user. Some models have split folding rear bench seats allowing them to be used as normal family five seaters when they are not being used to carry a wheelchair. Larger vehicles like the Peugeot Expert are sometimes available with seating for up to six people at the same time as the wheelchair user making these ideal for larger families.

We also often have vehicles fitted with easy access swivelling driver or passenger seats (available both with manual or electric operation). Some designs allow the seats to be converted into fully functional wheelchairs without the need for the user to transfer from car seat to wheelchair.

All the used Wheelchair Adapted Vehicles we sell would have been professionally converted when brand new by one of a small number of long established specialist companies such as Brotherwood, Aspect, Gowrings, Constables, Gleneagles, Lewis Reed, O&H Mobility and Allied Vehicles. All their designs are fully tested and are officially approved for safe use on the road.

Professionally converted models available with wheelchair access ramps include:
  • Fiat Doblo and Qubo
  • Citroen Berlingo
  • Peugeot Partner and Expert
  • Renault Kangoo
  • Vauxhall Combo
  • Kia Sedona
  • VW Caddy
  • Vauxhall Zafira

Most of these models are also available with mobility scooter hoists in place of ramps.

Mobility Scooter Hoists

We also supply cars fitted with electric mobility scooter hoists, and these can include most of the models normally used for wheelchair conversions along with a wide range of standard estate cars and hatchbacks to suit any price range. Suitable cars are available from most manufacturers across all market sectors including popular Fords, Vauxhalls and Toyotas, and more exclusive Mercedes and BMW estates as well as many others. Scooter hoists typically have 4-way remote electric operation and come with 40kg - 150kg lifting capacities which are easily sufficient to cover small and medium size mobility scooters.

Stock and Availability

If you do not immediately see a vehicle on our stock list that meets your needs please contact us and we will be happy to discuss your individual requirements. Our stock changes regularly and we can often obtain vehicles to order. Our website shows a representative range but we normally have others here that are not yet listed. If you need to carry a mobility scooter or a larger than standard wheelchair it would be most helpful if you could have the make and model details of your mobility scooter or large wheelchair readily available when you enquire so we can check your space requirements against the vehicle/s you are interested in.
