AVH aims high with fleet guidelines

Specialist supplier of adapted and wheelchair accessible vehicles for rent, Adapted Vehicle Hire (AVH), has announced the development of a fleet guidelines policy for 2011.

This is designed to insure that all new vehicles added to its fleet meet the maximum number of user needs prior to any AVH adaptations.

”It is vital that any new vehicles we purchase in 2011 include functionality that helps make driving as easy as possible for our customers”, said Lorraine Farnon, managing director of AVH.

AVH has separated requirements into primary and secondary categories, with vehicles having to meet all of the primary requirements and as many of the secondary requirements as possible to be considered for the fleet.

Primary requirements include rear parking sensors and electric windows. Secondary requirements include cruise control, push button ignition, Bluetooth, secondary steering wheel controls (e.g., stereo), parking brake button, automatic boot and electric seats.

In addition to these requirements, AVH is also continuing its practice of checking the vehicle against the Ricability database to ensure that it provides the best possible space for wheelchair stowage and that it is suited to transfers to and from a wheelchair. This is something vitally important for the majority of AVH’s customers.
