            Inclusive Thinking

            We very strongly identify with the movement to live in an inclusive society, enabling those with challenges to participate fully in all aspects of life.
            Further, we know that vehicles and the freedom they bring has special importance, and this is more than just transportation. They are a significant part of our being, and we fully understand the desire to have vehicles that not only function but are styled and perform to our ideals. This is part of the Abiliquip DNA.

            Where our skills can deliver enhanced participation in family life, education, employment, relaxation or travel – we not only want to help, we consider it our responsibility to take up the challenge.

            We understand that moving around our
            environment is essential to our wellbeing, and access into vehicles, driving them, and safety is a basic right for everyone. Driving Independence
