Hello, my name is Chris Edwards and I’m excited to introduce myself as the newest member of the Lewis Reed team.
As a wheelchair user myself, I am passionate about personal independence and mental health. I believe that access to a bespoke driving or passenger solution that is comfortable, beautiful and a joy to be in, is the cornerstone to this.
I’ve worked within the mobility industry for over 20 years. Firstly, starting with a bespoke wheelchair manufacturer visiting individuals and assessing their needs.
Then more recently I have worked for 17 years for Motability Operations travelling around the UK meeting individuals and groups providing guidance and advice whilst building awareness of travel and driving with a disability.
I have recently taken on the position of Mobility Specialist at Lewis Reed with my primary aim to contact solicitors, health professional, case manager and occupational therapists to demonstrate one of our wheelchair accessible vehicle and explain how we as a company can take responsibility for all mobility issues in your project management.
I’m looking forward to working with you as your mobility specialist at Lewis Reed and can’t wait to bring my vehicle out to show you, so please feel free to get in touch.
We realise that everybody is an individual. Everyone deserves to lead an independent and normal life.
We recognise an essential role of being independent is the ease of mobility.
For many clients needing help with mobility solutions, confusion and frustration is what we are told they experience with not knowing where to go and what to do.
Lewis Reed aim to smooth those worries away. We are always at hand to help with a whole range of issues.
We believe your clients don’t need to compromise. We realise everyone has their own set of circumstances and everyone’s situation is different. It therefore follows that there are no two solutions exactly the same either.
We are confident we will find the best vehicle in the most cost effective manner for each client to best fit their circumstance.

We will also take into consideration all practical and environmental issues including, their local road system, access, garaging and parking.
