No one wants to break down in their car period, but when it’s freezing cold, dark and wet, breakdowns become more than just an inconvenience; they can be a nightmare. So, to prevent the cold weather from affecting your WAV we’ve put together a checklist to help make sure your wheelchair accessible vehicle runs as it should through the colder months.
For 15 years, TBC Conversions have been working hard to make Motability wheelchair accessible vehicles that are safe, stylish, and simple to use. We convert and adapt a wide range of medium to large vehicles, from passenger cars like the Volkswagen Caddy WAV to larger drive from and internal transfer options like the Volkswagen T6.1 Range and Mercedes Sprinter.
We’re pleased to offer some insight into the newest WAV in our range; The Volkswagen Caddy 5.
It’s been a long time coming but live events are back, and we couldn’t be more excited to attend the first Live Kidz North Event in Liverpool organised by Disabled Living. Hosted this year at one of Liverpool’s most iconic conference and events centres the ACC Liverpool.
Read on to find out what to expect, how to register and what TBC Conversions will be bringing to the show for you all in 2021.
“You Can’t Put a Price Tag on Freedom.”
But of course, mobility is freedom and for those who struggle with mobility, there is always a price tag attached. Whether it’s a walking aid, home help tech or an adapted car, the prices can soon mount up. For those starting out on the scheme looking for their first Motability Car, TBC Conversions and The Motability Scheme can get you out on the road for less and here’s how.
The time has come for TBC Conversions and other wheelchair car converters, mobility suppliers and accessibility services to come together at our first live event of 2021.
We couldn’t be more excited to be joining our audiences and other like-minded businesses at this extraordinary event. This will be the 46th Naidex Exhibition hosted this year at the Birmingham NEC on the 15th and 16th of September, and we know it’s going to be a great couple of days.
At the end of last month our TBC Conversions minibus specialist, Joanne Campbell was invited to join a Webinar organised by Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles. Presenting to the Local Business Development Managers (LBDM’s), Joanne introduced the wonderful work TBC Conversions can do with the versatile Volkswagen Crafter, focusing on our range of Volkswagen minibus conversions.
Thanks to her efforts, the feedback from the Webinar was amazing, with both Volkswagen dealership representatives and organisers offering praise for Joanne’s extensive minibus conversion knowledge and her passion for the work TBC Conversions do.
If you, unfortunately, missed this presentation, not to worry, as we can give you a full rundown of the topics that were discussed and hopefully answer any questions you have about TBC Conversions’ range of Volkswagen minibuses.
Since 1977 the Motability Scheme has helped disabled people, their families and carers reclaim their freedom and independence by delivering mobility to millions of people all over the UK. As more and more manufacturers joined the scheme over the years disabled people were given a variety of well-established vehicle makes and models to choose from, among them, it is Volkswagen Motability cars that stand out as the most reliable and easily adaptable options.
In recent months there has been something happening on social media. Now if you are not in the world of marketing, or even just the niche that is marketing to disabled audiences, this movement may have completely escaped your attention, so we thought we’d help bring it into sharp focus.
At TBC Conversions we believe everyone has the right to accessible travel and by developing strong partnerships with other businesses that share our core values, we can help make that happen. Working together with vehicle hire companies, local authorities, educational bodies and charities our adaptive vehicle fleets are in use all over the UK, keeping people mobile and on the road.
TBC Mobility Conversions have supplied London based Adapted Vehicle Hire with 5 wheelchair accessible VW Caddy Maxi Life conversions, as one of the countries largest hire companies specialising in converted and adapted vehicles we are proud to be part of giving people the freedom to travel.
In a collaboration with London-based VW commercial vehicle franchise, Cordwallis, the specially adapted fleet was presented to Frances Waight, Operations Manager at Adapted Vehicle Hire who said:
“We are delighted with the new vehicles which will help to improve our fleet and ultimately benefit our customers.”
TBC Mobility Conversions has a unique relationship with a number of commercial vehicle manufacturer networks, which means they are capable of delivering a converted vehicle ANYWHERE within the UK.
“This is what makes us different from other conversion companies and give us greater distribution which benefits both our network partners and our customers,”
Tom McKeown, TBC Mobility Conversions Sales Manager.
Our conversions are the product of careful planning and stringent testing. We want to be sure we stand apart from other converters and aim to offer a superior standard of quality and finish. We appreciate that our wheelchair cars are more than just transport to many of our clients, they also provide freedom and independence. For this reason, every detail has been carefully considered including our patented continuous rear door seal specifically developed to lessen road noise and prevent drafts keeping the wheelchair passenger comfortable during their journey.
The sales team in both Bromborough and Dungannon are happy to travel for free at-home demonstrations of our latest wheelchair car range, and for larger accessible transport look no further than our Taxi & Minibus Conversions, perfect for keeping your team, group. staff or class on the road in comfort and safety.
