Specialist Vehicle Rental
Supplier of specially adapted lease and rental vehicles to people living with a disability, Specialist Vehicle Rental (SVR), has chosen Queen Elizabeth Foundation for Disabled People (QEF) as its new charity partner.

The new partnership will support QEF Mobility Services’ work providing driving assessments and driving lessons to disabled people; helping each person to be as mobile and independent as possible and providing unbiased information about the most suitable option of vehicle and adaptations available to hire, lease or purchase.

QEF Mobility Services is one the UK’s largest providers of mobility advice and support for disabled people and those with age-related impairments. Its specialist driving school provides rehabilitative tuition, driving lessons for confidence training – helping people to adapt to new methods of controlling the vehicle and driving lessons for new drivers up to test standard.

Birmingham-based SVR was impressed by QEF’s unwavering commitment to ensure disabled people live as independent a life as possible and has pledged to give a five per cent donation to QEF from every car supplied to a QEF client who uses the code ‘QEF’ as well as five per cent off the cost of the rental, lease or purchase to the client themselves.

Leo Visconti, Director of Engagement and Partnerships at QEF said: “SVR’s enthusiasm for our work was evident from the moment we spoke, and we are delighted to have been chosen by them.

“We are a small charity, but we have big ambitions to ensure that our services enable disabled people to maximise their mobility and independence, and that anyone who wants to drive has the opportunity to learn to drive, as it affords freedoms that everyone should have, and this partnership will help us reach that goal.”

Juggy Kudhail, the founder and MD at SVR added: “We are absolutely thrilled to be supporting QEF. It is not just a relationship, it’s a partnership where we look forward to working closely with QEF and their clients whilst supporting the charity.

“We endeavour to help understand peoples ‘life objectives’ and find solutions for their specific requirements. We work in close collaboration to ensure that we meet if not exceed expectations for all involved. SVR will find an answer for a client who needs our help. Our team are passionate in what they do and will always look to go the extra mile to help achieve customer satisfaction.

“It is hoped that the partnership will raise a minimum of £5,000 to support QEF’s mobility services. For any QEF clients that choose SVR, motoring and mobility solutions will be developed that are tailored to a clients’ specific disability and within their budget.

“These include adaptive equipment from basic hand controls through to full wheelchair access and hoists in its new vehicles and used vehicles. It can also create adaptations to a clients existing vehicle.”
