  • “I have had this car since 2012 and I have had many years of trouble free motoring. This car is my life, it gave me freedom and I could not have asked for anything better. Anywhere I went I had people come up to me and comment that they would like the same car. There was a lot of interest in it, so I gave them your number and location. The staff of Sirus were very professional in every manner, even the guys who came to service my adaptations were very good. Hopefully I will be having another the same.”

    Norman T
  • “Please pay Ian the service engineer at least double! The man is worth more than his weight in gold. Do not ever let him go. Ian goes above and beyond to sort any problems for us. Considering we are almost as far away down west as we could be, your service is faultless and & what’s much more appreciated. Thank you all from start to finish, excellent. P.S If I can’t have another Sirus conversion I will be so upset. Everyone that sees it is impressed beyond belief. I had one chap come up to the vehicle. He exploded in delight and said it was the best-engineered conversion he had ever seen. He said he had never seen such a well-engineered conversion.”

    Richard J
  • “Having seen what happens to the vehicle at Sirus I tell you they do a brilliant job; the quality of the workmanship is excellent.  I have seen the workshop when I was invited to their open day when they were presented the Queens Award for Enterprise… When I’ve spoken to anybody from the factory they all seem keen to hear if there’s anything that can be improved. The lads do a good job and take pride in what they do, and I would like to personally thank Sirus workers for my car”. 

    Graham , Shropshire
  • “The Caddy Drive has made a huge difference to our lives; the availability of a vehicle that can be entered and then driven without transferring from a manual chair has to be experienced to be appreciated.  The operation is so straightforward that is does not take long to get into the routine. Freedom would be the keyword. Free to drive whenever and wherever one cares to, the ability to drive my wife to the supermarket for a change, giving her (and her car) a rest. In all the Sirus car is going to be a boost to our lives, puts me back on the road with a vehicle, that after the initial cautious approach to driving again, proves to be pleasant to drive, and gives us the ability to do some sightseeing this summer. An excellent vehicle with the knowledge that there is a professional back up team to help if required”.   

    John , Oxfordshire
  • “Spending time with Sirus has been phenomenal. I’ve really enjoyed my experience with you. I love to see how things are made, and I wanted to gain an understanding of the work that goes into the conversion.  It is good to see such high standards of design and workmanship Sirus go to, to create a very special product. There is a great atmosphere at Sirus, everyone who works there is really happy and I was made to feel so welcome. That must be down to the fact their conversions give people back their freedom and independence”. 

    Mike , Staffordshire
  • “Thank you for ensuring that my chair returned in time for my work today. And well done for completing the London Marathon for MS Society for crocks like me. 

    Julia , Greater London
  • “We are sending you a big thank you for all your help and patience in your adaptations to our car, which has dramatically improved our independence. It’s great to have the freedom to go out together as a couple, without help or carers. In the last few days we have hardly been at home!” 

    Shirley , Oldham
  • “Since the delivery of my car with its alterations to enable me to drive up on a ramp to the driving position, my lifestyle as a disabled person has been dramatically and positively enhanced. Your response to the small problems I have had have been most promptly dealt with and I will look forward to the use of my car in the future”.
