Enterprise Flex-E-Rent offers a full range of vehicles across our depots nationwide, and our fleet includes more than 400 wheelchair accessible vehicles. These range from small vehicle models, suitable for providing transport for a single wheelchair user, to larger accessible minibuses, which can accommodate up to six wheelchair users as well as other able bodied passengers. Removable seating optimises the available space and further increases possible passenger options.
When we design wheelchair accessible vehicles for hire, we keep your passengers in mind. Many vehicles are equipped with mechanical lifts to remove the need for manual hoisting, and non-slip surfaces, handrails and safety edging also improve passenger safety. Wheelchairs can be secured on board with cant rail anchorage and Unwin floor tracking. In addition to mobility features, high- visibility yellow seatbelts and headrests can be a valuable addition for visually impaired passengers.
We only ever work with industry-leading vehicle conversion companies when adapting wheelchair accessible vehicles for hire. All vehicles are compliant with appropriate health and safety legislation, and hold a Single Vehicle Approval certificate to comply with Public Service Vehicle requirements.

This commitment to customer care supports our ‘keep you on the road’ philosophy.
