Motability-Car-Costs.png

When it comes to Motability car costs, there is no grey area. There is no other scheme in the world quite like the Motability Scheme which enables people with additional mobility needs to lease adapted cars, wheelchair accessible vehicles and other mobility transport aides using their weekly mobility allowance.

Throughout the duration of your lease, and after the manufacturer’s warranty expires, most Motability car costs are covered by the scheme and here we’ve outlined what the Motability Scheme will and won’t cover.

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.

Learn how TBC Salesperson, Gerry Galvin, and Sandvik Engineering technician, Philip Oliver, worked together to transform van into office. A journey that ended with us developing one of our most cleverly conceived specialist vehicle conversions yet.

In the summer of 2018, an existing client of the Donnelly Group, Sandvik Engineering, was recommended to Gerry at TBC Specialist Conversions in relation to a unique specialist conversion they had in mind.

The task at hand; to enable mobile diagnostics and servicing of Sandvik’s cutting edge industrial equipment.

2017-vw-expo-event.png

TBC Conversions were pleased to be invited to exhibit our Volkswagen wheelchair accessible minibus at the Volkswagen Commercial vehicles EXPO event. This small but educational event was held in the National Learning Centre in Milton Keynes and included a selection of third-party converters who came to showcase the wide range of conversion possibilities Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles provide.

What can a Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle become?

At the event, we were lucky enough to be able to view other impressive vehicle conversions undertaken, from ambulances and recovery vehicles alongside our own minibus and wheelchair accessible vehicles. Thanks to Volkswagens expert engineering the VW Crafters, Transporters and Caddy’s make excellent base models for the type of vehicle conversions we supply atTBC.

Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles EXPO Event

As part of the Volkswagen Recognised Converter network, we are able to confidently provide businesses, organisations and private owners a wide variety of vehicle conversions. Currently, we specialise in standard and accessible minibuses, ranging from 16 to 17 seaters, with front or side entry options and a huge choice of seating configurations.

TBC Conversions have also been working closely with the Motability Scheme to provide passenger transport and drive from wheelchair accessible vehicles such as the Volkswagen Caddy and Volkswagen T6 Range Shuttle and Caravelle.

What we took to the show

Making sure we gave those in attendance a good idea of what can be achieved when converting Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, we took both a WAV and a minibus along for the ride.

The chosen WAV was our VW Caddy Life converted to carry wheelchair passengers with a low angle ramp in the rear. Our ramp is situated at such an angle as to provide wheelchair users with a seated position in keeping with the other passengers in the vehicle. The exhibition team took this opportunity to highlight the lengths TBC Conversions go to improve the passenger travel experience, with the use of our continuous rear door seal, preventing road noise and weather elements affecting the passengers.

We also had in tow the Volkswagen Crafter accessible minibus complete with rear access inboard lift, front entry and fully adjustable seating.

The event was a huge success and fully highlighted the brilliant work various vehicle conversion companies are doing in terms of making travel accessible, but also making the most out of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle base models to provide businesses and organisations, safe and reliable transportation.
