At Willshire, we understand the need to maintain independence. Vehicle accessibility can be very tedious and difficult for individuals in wheelchairs. Even more tedious is the process of storing away the wheelchair after use and then taking it out when exiting the vehicle.

To make wheelchair users' lives simpler, easier and more convenient, we have set up a range of products that work specifically for catering for the storage of your wheelchair, gofer, scooter and other items.

We have a diverse range of products to suit customers with different vehicles and different needs. Please check out our range by clicking on the products below and start your new more independent life.
