Working in partnership with Australia’s best engineering companies who specialise in customised vehicle modifications for wheelchair and mobility access, we can deliver vehicles to meet your specific needs.

We strongly believe the consultation process is crucial in delivering an accessible vehicle which is a good fit for our special needs clients. QAV offers a free consultation and design process right through to an official proposal.

When it comes to developing a Custom-built Vehicle for Wheelchair Access, there are important factors to be considered for best results:

  • Clients’ abilities (physical and intellectual)
  • Size of wheelchair and client (what internal space is required for comfortable position)
  • What assistive technology is required (wheelchair lift/ramp, occupant restraint systems, seating systems, steps and hand rails)
  • Overall size of vehicle (where will the vehicle be housed / driver ability)

The QAV Sales team

With a combined 25 years’ experience, our team values the importance of customer service and vehicle/equipment knowledge. We strive to deliver quality service and are committed to take any undue pressure off our clients, right from the consultation/design process to the delivery of your customised vehicle (delivered to your door). Our design process is not just about the wheelchair passenger, we also take into consideration Work Health & Safety standards and how the vehicle layout effects the carer / driver.

Passenger Comfort and Safety

Vehicle modifications/conversions can have a big impact on passenger comfort. By working on factors such as internal space, type of seating and assistive technology (hand rails-steps), we can drastically improve passenger comfort and safety.

All vehicle modifications and accessories fitted to our custom-built vehicles for wheelchair/mobility access meet Australian Design Rule Standards, including a compliance certificate required by your relevant state and territory authority. All used vehicles supplied by QAV go through a rigorous safety check and service process and come with a 12-month warranty.

  • Community Transport / Taxi
  • Aged and Home Care
  • Disability Services
  • Tourism
