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.
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.
