About David Relph Adaptations

Independence Restored

David Relph Adaptations is a family run business established in 1998 by David, a paraplegic himself. We offer unrivalled experience and expertise with a friendly down to earth approach and reliable service. With us you deal direct with people with hands on experience and not a pushy sales team.

We’re the first and longest established Motability accredited adaptation specialist in Norfolk and Suffolk and are recommended by all of your local car dealerships and all adaptation suppliers.

The majority of our adaptations are installed via a mobile service to your home, work or at the dealership prior to you collecting your new vehicle. We also have workshop facilities and offer a collection and delivery service for more involved jobs. We cover the whole of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and often further afield.

Most adaptations we supply and fit are available for you to see on one of our demonstration vehicles.

Meet the Team

David Relph

David himself has been confined to a wheelchair following an accident on an off road trike leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. He solely founded the business in 1998. Due to his own major disability he has a great understanding of the disabled community, as his logo highlights his aim is to ‘Restore Independence’ where so ever possible. Davids engineering background stems back right from a very young age when he was always helping his uncle fix the coaches in his families coach business. Since leaving school he took an apprenticeship where he was responsible for the overhaul of all types of civil engineering machinery, a position in which he passed his City & Guilds with flying colours. David diversified his skills moving into factory maintenance, car garages and travelling the world in the merchant navy in his role as refrigeration engineering officer. Following this he owned and ran his own motor car sales, repair and servicing garage prior to his accident. Davids vast engineering experience has left him in a good situation where he usually has a solution to the many different enquiries for adaptations received, this experience set the business in good stead and has been passed through the team.

Daniel Potter (Dan)

Daniel is your first point of contact. He joined the company in 2011 after finishing apprenticeships at a car garage carrying out repairs, servicing and MOT preparation work and a coach company where he was responsible for coach repairs and fabrication work. During both apprenticeships Daniel successfully completed his City & Guilds. Daniel's background has led him to instantly pick up the installation of all adaptations and he has shown a great ability to come up with solutions for more bespoke adaptations. He has also demonstrated a very friendly approach and good understanding of our customers’ needs.


James Cordle (Jim)

Jim was employed from the start of the business and straight away demonstrated the ability to learn the installation of all products quickly and to a high standard along with the skill of being able to communicate well with customers. He is a great asset to the company and has a vast knowledge of the industry and the installation and demonstration of all adaptations we supply and fit travelling the whole of East Anglia.
