About Vic Young Conversions in South Shields

At Vic Young Conversions, we develop unique conversions on new vehicles and customers’ own vehicles, as well as bespoke adaptions.

Over the years we have developed a wide range of bespoke vehicles, of which many are the first of their kind in the UK. Examples include a mobile cocktail van, electric oven van, minibuses for the Red Bull Formula 1 racing team, a mobile dog parlour, rescue vehicles, health service vehicles and vehicles converted for funeral directors.

We have also developed a wide range of wheelchair accessible vehicles, including: PTS vehicles, mini-buses, multi-purpose vehicles, taxis and private vehicles for customers.

In 2015, we launched Electric Vehicle Evolution (EVE), a revolutionary concept in disabled passenger transport. EVE is based on the Nissan e-NV200 Combi, which has been customised by Vic Young Conversions. The conversion includes a vehicle ramp system to ensure that the wheelchair user can access the vehicle with ease and EVE’s five standard passenger seats are retained even while a wheelchair user is on board, meaning greater flexibility for passenger transport.

At Vic Young Conversions, we have confirmed our continued commitment to the industry by becoming a 'multi-type' Vehicle Builders & Repairs Association (VBRA) member, which brings the bodybuilding division under the VBRA standards programme.

We are also accredited with Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Converters Association (WAVCA), full accreditation from the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA) and the Specialist Transport Advisory and Testing Utility Society STATUS. This again, shows the on-going commitment to professionalism by Vic Young Conversions.

Furthermore, managing director Vic Young, is a Fellow of the Institute of the Motor Industry, a Member of the Institute of Directors and an Associate Member of the Institute of Road Transport Engineers.
