Can I have some more info on the Motability scheme?
You can call us at the office to speak to someone in Customer Services, or call Motability direct on 0845 456 4566 or go to www.motability.co.uk

No, we don’t currently here at Sirus but we can recommend a company who specialise in finance for Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles:
Derek Hannah – Southern Finance.
T: 023 8022 6745
How long will I have to wait for a vehicle?
We can discuss this with you once you have had a demonstration and we can see your exact requirements. Depending on our current orders and if you are going through Motability, you could have a vehicle on average within 12 -16 weeks.
Can I have a demonstration?
Yes, just let us know a time that suits you and we will come to your home for a free, no obligation demonstration.
Can I access this vehicle independently from my manual wheelchair?
This is dependent upon your ability to propel yourself up the ramp. It does have a low gradient, and some of our customers manage it with relative ease. However, you may find it easier with power-assisted wheels on your manual chair or a powerchair.
Do I need to be able to stand to transfer to the drivers seat?
No. The 6-way driver’s seat can be positioned to make it easier for you to do a sideways seated transfer straight from your wheelchair. We can also fit grab rails if necessary to make the transfer easier for you.
What’s the maximum seating capacity of the vehicle?
As standard there is seating for 2 people: the driver and one passenger. Depending upon the size of your wheelchair and how far forwards it is positioned for you to transfer from, there may be room at the rear of the vehicle for a single fold down seat – taking the seating capacity to 3 in total. This would be determined upon demonstration.
