Hoists and Access.

At Adaptive Vehicle Conversions, we specialise in a range of equipment to help you move around your vehicle.


Ideal for lifting manual wheelchairs or micro scooters into the boot of the vehicle, once the equipment is in place, the hoist can be folded down into the boot space.


Suitable for heavier equipment, this range of hoists can lift/lower and power the wheelchair or scooter in and out of the boot area via a push button control panel, in addition the hoist itself can quickly be removed from its fixing post if the hoist is not required creating more space in the boot area.


The manual tip-up plate is used by people who find it difficult getting in and out of their vehicle, it serves as a bridge from the car seat and provides peace of mind for those users wary of missing the car seat when transferring. The maximum load capacity is 120kg and the plate itself can be tilted or removed once transfer into the vehicle is complete.

The Tip Up plate can be installed in vehicles with three and five doors, on either right or left front seat.


The Electric Tip Up Plate works in a similar manor to the manual tip up plate and is suitable for persons that need assistance in getting from a seated position to standing or as a sidewise transfer between a wheelchair and car seat where there is a difference in height. The Tip Up plate can be installed in vehicles with three and five doors on either right or left front seat.


The Person Hoist is strong, lightweight and versatile, so it is ideal for varying levels and types of disability, comes with different sling sizes and can lift up to 23-and-a-half stone. It can be fitted into almost any vehicle, whether it has three doors or five, and can be used in the home, on holiday or in the office.

If you have little or no mobility in your legs but want to continue to enjoy travelling in a regular car seat then the Person Hoist is the perfect solution. The Person Hoist will lift you gently out of your wheelchair and lower you gently into either the driver or passenger seat.


A popular and affective solution to transfer into a vehicle, the swivel seat can rotate up to 90 degrees out of the vehicle allowing swift and safe access into a vehicle.

For higher vehicles such as vans or mpv’s a powered seat is available which can be programmed to swivel in/out and up/down to a suitable height so transfer to and from a wheel chair can be achieved.


A powered seat slider is easy to operate via a switch located in a position convenient for the user and can give you that extra leg space needed when swivelling in and out of the vehicle. It can also be used to find a comfortable seating position in the car and can be installed in both passenger and driver side.
