WVNE’s team understands that choosing the right vehicle is a significant decision, and their larger site, that holds 15-20 vehicles aims to provide you with more room to browse and test out various options.

Each vehicle comes with a full service, and is fully inspected, checking over the full vehicle, and most importantly the wheelchair adaptations. Anything that is needed is always replaced. Once they are 110% happy, the vehicle is then presented for sale. Each vehicle comes with a fresh 12 months mot test too.

For added assurance, if an issue was to arise, customers can receive a premium Gold warranty package, which means you can take your vehicle to any local VAT registered garage in your area.

Insuring your new WAV

Once you’ve made a decision and picked out your shiny new set of wheels, you’ll want to look at insurance.

Fish Insurance is a specialist provider with over 45 years of experience in providing specialist insurance products to protect people in the UK within the disability, mobility, and care sectors. We take pride in offering disability and independent living insurance policies specifically designed with you in mind. In the motoring world, we offer a specialised car insurance policy aimed at disabled road users and their vehicles to help customers find the right level of cover.

Vehicles that have been adapted for those who have disabilities usually come with a broad mix of unique features. From ramps, to driving controls and beyond; the addition of such items can significantly increase the overall value of a vehicle. When insuring those vehicles, owners may not be aware of the requirements  when looking for insurance to cover them sufficiently. This is where using a specialist provider like ourselves can be useful.
