We're Hiring
Inside the Steering Developments offices

Brilliantly Bespoke

We're not an off-the-shelf supplier - our strength lies in our dedication to customised, bespoke solutions. We don't just supply electric wheelchairs and adapt vehicles, we customise each and every product for our clients, to ensure that you get the very best for your individual needs.

We won't rush you, and we won't try and sell you something that might not be suitable - we'll take the time to find out exactly what works for you, and we'll be honest if that's not something we can help with. Generally, of course, it is something we can help with, but you can rest assured that we're here to help, not to sell.

The Steering Developments offices

Dedicated staff

Our dedicated team of 18 staff are extremely experienced, they've been with us for a long time - some of them over 20 years. Our staff turnover is low, which allows us to build great relationships with our clients; our engineers and service staff get to know you well enough to provide the excellent service we pride ourselves on. Just look at our testimonials and you can see how our clients see us - friendly, approachable and knowledgeable.

High Standards

We're committed to continually improving, which is why we complete a lot of training and development, and keep up to date with innovations and industry best practices. Actually, we're well-known in the industry for our ability to solve problems that other manufacturers can't - we're pretty much the benchmark for technical adaptations.

We're widely recognised as the supplier that carries out the simplest to the most complicated driving controls, and for supplying the best WAVs on the market. We're also the only official UK supplier of the Yamaha JW range, through our SD Motion range of powered wheelchairs, batteries and accessories.

Ongoing Innovation

Because we often do the most complicated vehicle adaptations, both privately and for Motability, our technicians make sure they keep up with technology so that they can always give you the best outcome.

We also like to try new things - such as lightening the power steering on newer model cars - so we not only stay ahead of the game, but also offer you the very latest innovations and adaptations to help you stay independent for longer. We also end up doing quite a lot of sub-contracted work, for dealers around the country who rely on us to keep their clients satisfied too.

VAT Exemption

Certain individuals who are 'chronically sick or disabled' may well be VAT exempt for certain goods and services supplied - let us explain how.

European Mobility Group

The EMG is a non-profit association of businesses throughout Europe concerned with promoting the independent mobility of persons with disabilities by providing equipment and vehicle modifications. Steering Developments was one of 8 companies who established the EMG in Paris in 1987. Since then membership has steadily grown and today more than 40 members contribute to the group. The current focus is to establish rigorous standards for the car adaptation industry through the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN). In essence, this is about making sure that people who travel in an adapted car get the same level of safety as you would expect in a standard car.
