David Smith MBE and Boccia gold medal winner tells us how his fuel-efficient Sirus drive from wheelchair vehicle enables him to travel all around the country to training sessions and competitions.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our recent WAV survey! We gained some great insight into what you look for in your ideal wheelchair accessible vehicle and hear from some of our Sirus customers.
I play Powerchair Football for West Bromwich Albion Throstles and have done so for the past 10 years. I travel to and from games/training in my Upfront Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle converted by Sirus. In addition to football, the Sirus VW Upfront has given me so much freedom to travel without having to worry about not having enough space to take everything I need.
Sirus contacted me on several occasions to ensure everything was okay with me using the car with the appropriate adaptations, which was a transfer plate to help me get in and out of the vehicle with ease. This shows after care provision by an experienced member of your staff, which was very relieving and comforting for me as a disabled person.
Learning to drive is probably the single best thing I have ever done as it has given me independence and the freedom to live my life. I have a Sirus Fiat Qubo drive from wheelchair vehicle, where I drive straight in the rear via an automated tailgate and ramp which opens at the push of a button.
The engineers can fit all kinds of driving adaptations to make their customers lives easier, and they really think about how you are going to use the car for every day life. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sirus to anyone looking for a mobility solution.”
I would highly recommend this wheelchair accessible vehicle and would encourage people to see for themselves how good it really is and to experience all the benefits. It meets all of my needs and provides the quietest and most comfortable ride with all the facilities to allow independent use.
“I set up Assisted Mobility Services Ltd in June 2017. We provide transportation with support for hospitals visits, appointments, shopping trips, days out, leisure activities and more. We can even cater for our customers dogs! We help many customers who are vulnerable, many who haven’t been out for years, and find it almost impossible to […]
I have been a Sirus customer for Six years and in that time I’ve had nothing but amazing customer service from the whole team. From calling the office to one of the friendly team coming out to you, its a seamless process! I even had a repair around Christmas one year that meant my car […]
“I love all of the Sirus conversions… they design products which don’t look like a disability car, they actually makes us feel ‘more normal!’. The way they fit out the base vehicle and ensure the finish on the interior is exceptional. Sadly I don’t currently own a Sirus conversion, as I need a larger vehicle […]
“In 1989 I had a stroke on my left side which affected my arm leaving it weak, and my left leg which never returned to proper working order. I had a WAV which was fine until the beginning of 2009 when I found that I was not steady on my crutches, so I started to […]
“Spending time with Sirus has been phenomenal. I’ve really enjoyed my experience with them. Having been in the jewellery manufacturing trade myself for a number of years, I love to see how things are made, and I wanted to gain an understanding of the work that goes into the conversion. In earlier years, when vehicles […]
“I am writing to express my appreciation for all the work done on my behalf, for my VW Caddy Drive. I cannot tell you how great it is to be able to drive again. I can’t believe it! I have to pinch myself! the lack of suitable transport rendered me housebound for nearly 4 years […]
“I can still walk, although it is limited, and occasionally I am a bit better and don’t need the chair as much, although other times I am completely reliant on it. In the past, when I was in the stage where I needed the chair, I would withdraw from life because my pain and stamina […]
