Motorstar, one of the North West’s leading dealers of Wheelchair Access Vehicles, recently moved their business over to Globe Mill, Waterfoot. The company have now moved again to new premises at The Compound, Gaghills Mill, Burnley Road East, Waterfoot.
Previously based in Whitworth, Rochdale, Motorstar have become a trusted name across the region and nationwide for the range of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) that they always have available.
Motorstar hand-pick the very best disabled cars and vans. These come direct from mobility arrangements, meaning that the full vehicle history is always known. Such vehicles tend to also have a low mileage history from previous owners too.
All Motorstar vehicles are professionally converted by the leading names in the industry, such as Gleneagles, Allied, Constables and Gowrings.
Various types of used accessible vehicles are available, from large minibuses to all kinds of multipurpose vehicles. Regardless of the type and size of WAV you are looking for, or the style of easy access ramps or Qstraints that you would like with a wheelchair accessible vehicle, Motorstar will have it available or be able to source a suitable vehicle for you.
Of course, it shouldn’t be underestimated just how important wheelchair accessible vehicles are for disabled people and their families and carers. A WAV essentially gives a person a new lease of life, and a sense of freedom and independence that might be sadly lacking without such a vehicle. From making it possible to carry on with day-to-day activities, such as a trip to the shops, to enabling day trips out, few things are as liberating as a wheelchair accessible vehicle that is well-suited to an individual’s needs.
Naturally, choosing a WAV that is ideal for a person’s mobility needs and lifestyle is a highly important decision that you need to get right. Motorstar staff are always available to offer helpful guidance and advice about anything related to wheelchair accessible vehicles and mobility issues in general.
A typical WAV is a vehicle that has been converted with either a ramp or a lift so that wheelchair access is easy. It is usual for the wheelchair user to be able to able to sit in their chair for the duration of a journey.
For those people with a manual wheelchair or a mobility scooter, a smaller-sized WAV is usually ideal, providing space for an additional two or three passengers. Luxury WAVs cater for those who need extra room or space for more passengers.
If the user has an electric wheelchair, a larger WAV is often required as a platform lift is usually needed. For anybody that needs extra room, a wheelchair accessible minibus is another option. This is particularly useful if space is needed for more than one wheelchair user.
All in all, there are a range of different conversion and vehicle options to consider, including those that allow the wheelchair passenger to ride up front, and even those that enable the car to be driven from the wheelchair itself.
We wish Motorstar all the very best in their new home at Gaghills Mill.
