For over 20 years Stanford Coachworks have built quality wheelchair accessible vehicles and over the last year Stanford developed a high end range of luxury passenger vehicles, the Monaco range. This year we created Monaco by Stanford, we united our experience of wheelchair accessible conversions and luxury conversions to create a luxury wheelchair accessible vehicle for Matt Hampson last year.
This year we have again merged the two design principles to create a luxury wheelchair passenger vehicle. We have always created high quality wheelchair accessible minibuses and offered high spec finishes. We believe fine quality should be available to everyone, we never want our vehicle designs to stigmatise anyone, we believe they should stand out for the right reasons. This is exactly the same with our Monaco luxury wheelchair accessible vehicles, they are designed in the same way as our Monaco passenger vehicles, but allow space and access for wheelchair passengers.
This particular Monaco was built for a family to enable the family to travel together, they were recommended to us by Matt Hampson. We built this for the Robinson family, George Robinson suffered spinal damage in Year 13 whilst playing rugby on a school trip in South Africa. After Georges accident a trust was set up by his family and school to support him, #teamgeorge produce merchandise and arrange charitable events to raise money ,"George’s family, friends and school all want to help and support #teamgeorge raise money not just for George but for all charities and institutions connected with spinal injury’s". The movement has gained support from the likes of Matt Hampson and David Beckham.
