Motor Vehicle Assist

Motor Vehicle Assist (MVA) was established to provide clients with an extended service, which includes attending to all accommodation and travelling arrangements required during the processing of their personal injury claim.

Our MVA team understands that serious injuries may leave a victim in a state of constant pain, discomfort and disability, which can make travel tiresome and unpleasant. Our door to door transport in comfortable, reliable, air conditioned motor vehicles, with experienced drivers who appreciate the demands of debilitating injuries, will give each client the peace of mind they deserve.

Our team of trustworthy drivers – Kevin, Owen, James and Michael – form the very foundation of Motor Vehicle Assist. Passionate about serving others and dedicated to going that extra mile, our drivers are willing and able to assist clients with any type of injury or disability, and will do so with a smile.
