With over twenty five years of experience in providing new and used mobility cars, Brotherwood Automobility have steadily been building a great reputation for helping disabled and less mobile people to lead more fulfilling and independent lives the world over. This could only have been achieved through the continued dedication to innovative and sympathetic design which has been our trademark since the beginning.
The Brotherwood story began when founder Rod Brotherwood was asked to build a wheelchair accessible vehicle for his friend John Lambert, who was paralysed in a motorbike accident. Since then, the company has kept at its core the philosophy that mobility transport should look and feel as much like the standard equivalent as possible. This is achieved partly by the installation of specially lowered flat floors into the vehicles, as well as occasional suspension modification, which ensures that the wheelchair passenger’s head height is kept at the same level as others travelling in the car at all times.
The easy entrance and exit of wheelchairs into our converted vehicles is, of course, also a priority, and is delivered via the use of a hinged ramp in the car’s rear hatch. This method also works as offering a certain amount of protection from the elements in the case of inclement weather.
Specialising in a wide range of quality mobility cars for sale, Brotherwood are renowned in the UK and beyond for their attention to detail and excellent customer service. Why not browse our website or arrange a visit to our fantastic Dorset showroom today and see what we can do for you?
