Wheelchair-accessible vehicles with ramps are converted when they are new. The conversion involves cutting out the floor to lower it, which is best done on new metal.
The highest cost of converting a vehicle is on the floor; the more it is cut out, the higher the cost. That is why good quality conversions with long, flat floor cutouts are more expensive.
Many people who buy new wheelchair-accessible vehicles don't have high mileage – they tend to make many short journeys.
This makes used wheelchair-accessible vehicles a really good buy. They are often much cheaper than brand-new ones but well-maintained with low mileage.
Thorntrees Garage only stocks the better conversions, which give a high ride quality to the wheelchair user – a lowered floor and good visibility through the windows. We stock many conversions and vehicles to help you source a second-hand wheelchair vehicle that best suits the wheelchair user and the driver.
