Adaptations to vehicles
Andy’s Kars has for a few years now been working with Motability Operations on research and development on electrical and mechanic malfunctions to their current and older fleet of adapted vehicles. We now also install; service and repair most adaptations old and new. We can also manufacture bespoke adaptation to suit individual needs to maintain their independence.
We can install adaptations for private customers as well including, hand controls, hoists and specialist seats.
We have good relations with the local dealers that supply vehicles to Motability Operations for the customers and usually have a reasonable turn around on adapting the vehicle and getting back to the dealer for handover to you.
The parts are all ordered in advance so that the down time for the vehicle is as minimal as possible. This way we can get you back on the road as soon as possible.
Do you have the ability to adapt? We do.
We can manufacture and install any number of products electrical and mechanical to meet your requirements of life style.

This ingenious design of Auto Clutch allows you to depress the clutch on a manual car by pressing a button located on the end of the gear stick. When combined with our brake and accelerator controls, the user is able to drive a manual car when previously it was almost impossible.
The allows precise and comfortable clutch control. The compact clutch drive assembly is located under the dashboard adjacent to the clutch pedal and is conntacted to an electronic module. (can be seen in image on the right).
The module measures the vehicle speed and current position of the accelerator and clutch pedals. Based on the measured values, the module moves the clutch pedal to the optimum position. It comes with three memory settings that can be set for individual driving conditions, i.e. bad weather/snow, steep/hilly roads etc. Selecting a drive mode is as simple as pressing a button on the control module.
Program two on the module can be set to the users own specific requirements, allowing the driver to tailor the system to his or her particular driving style.
