Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle for Businesses

“What is the best wheelchair-accessible vehicle for my business?”

Transporting the disabled is a critical job. So finding the perfect wheelchair-accessible vehicle is paramount!

To transport wheelchair passengers or less mobile persons, we look for the following four criteria in a business vehicle.

With these four requirements in mind, our company chooses the Toyota Hiace Welcab. At Wheelchair Vehicles Oz, we believe the Toyota-designed and factory-built Hiace Welcab is the perfect vehicle for any business.


The Hiace is consistently one of the best commercial vans for safety across all judging areas.

The Welcab series has been engineered to ensure the wheelchair lift is the safest in the world. Wheelchair lifts are seamlessly integrated into a vehicle’s electrical systems. Lifts retrofitted to commuter vans aftermarket are far inferior to this system.

When using a wheelchair-accessible vehicle for commercial needs, a larger van size is a must. The Hiace Welcab variant offers not only 1 to 2 wheelchair spaces but also comfortably seats 6 or 7 passengers.

Since the Hiace is used to transport disabled or non-disabled persons daily, it would make the ideal vehicle for this application.

Toyota Hiace Welcab


One reason that makes the Toyota Hiace Welcab so unique is the level of comfort it offers to the wheelchair occupants. Toyota engineers designed the vehicle around the wheelchair space, giving an unparalleled driving experience.

Options such as:

– High-top windows. Allowing the wheelchair persons to see out of the vehicle at a higher head position.

– An electronic step. Coming out at the sliding door, creating a shallow step for fewer mobile users to enter and exit the van.

– A larger lift. So caregivers can stay on the lift while the wheelchair is being raised and lowered into the rear cab.

Value for Money

As a business, getting value for your money is a must! This is where the factory-built Toyota Hiace Welcab shines.

The Toyota Hiace is known for being able to drive for a Million Kilometers! This vehicle is a true workhorse of the commercial industry. This van will last a lifetime!

With a Japanese-built Hiace Welcab, you can almost cut your cost as a business owner in HALF compared to purchasing a vehicle and retrofitting it with a wheelchair lift.
