NewWave Custom Conversions was founded in June 2010 and created through a keen interest in leisure vehicles, at the time offering a service fully recognising the demands that are expected specifically from a converted Volkswagen Transporter (T5). Initially the company started on a small scale with only two staff members in a relatively small workshop. Having limited overheads at the time the original NWCC team were able to develop the initial interior conversions trialling and adjusting a number of different concepts and build specifications.
In a short space of time we have grown significantly; Today we have a dedicated and passionate eight member team who are perfectionists when it comes to converting the VW. Now offering conversions within the T5, T6, Caddy, Caddy-Maxi & Crafter. We aim to establish a solid professional relationship with all of our clients regardless of expenditure. Our main aim is to develop with our clients a unique VW interior conversion; In our designs we always want to show the individual character of the owner and their vehicle, far beyond the offer of the manufacturer.
NewWave … The One-Stop-Shop
Now operating from a large dedicated specifically designed workshop, situated just minutes away from J34 of the M4 Motorway. Our Workshop consists of over 5500 Square foot of floor space. With dedicated skilled sectors & departments, ‘Upholstery & Trimming‘, ‘Joinery & CNC‘, well stocked stores all individually sectioned & extracted to guarantee a dust free environment and efficient work method.
You will be welcomed & Invited into our modern waiting room and have use of our Tea & Coffee and WC facilities.
As a team we strive to learn about your needs as much as possible to fully meet your expectations, whether you require the converted VW for Business purposes, Extreme Sports trips or Family summer getaways. Building a custom project can be very time consuming and stressful, therefore we combine our skills and knowledge with industry leaders in other sectors such as paint & body specialists. This allows us to offer a complete project managed service, effectively making New Wave the One-Stop-Shop for all of your VW conversion requirements.
Team NWCC regularly converse with potential clients from all over the UK, with some further afield we have previous clients based in Jersey, The Isle of Man, The Isle of Wight, France & Spain; Don’t be hesitant in contacting us due to our location. No matter your location our in house specialists are here to assist you.
Due to various individual lifestyles we understand it is not always practical to visit the NWCC workshop, therefore our detailed website has been designed around providing you with as much information for viewing at your convenience. On the rare occasion that it has even been difficult to deliver a vehicle ahead of its scheduled conversion, we have been known to assist with the delivery and return of the converted vehicle via transport courier.
Throughout the initial start up years of the company we have learnt that through patience and perseverance we can convert your vehicle into the luxury leisure vehicle of your dreams. With years of research and experience now behind us we aim to provide the most complete VW conversion service in the UK; Yet we strongly believe that the development of our interiors is a continuous process, as we strive to achieve the best VW interior conversions available on the market today. This enables us to stay ahead of our competition; With each member of the NWCC team being extremely passionate about VW conversions we know what works and what doesn’t.
All of our conversion works are carried out in-house, from Upholstery to Carpentry and Electrics. We only work using the leading tooling brands e.g. Festool & Snap-on. Ensuring the use of recognised leading brand materials eg. Smev, Waeco, VW Sportline, Eibach, BBS, Thule, Fiamma, SCA and RIB. All of the popular conversion additions are genuine VW parts or recognised after market brands and accessorises e.g. Lowering kits, Alloy wheels, Spoilers, Bike racks, Windows, etc…
A Passionate & Dedicated Team
Once your VW begins the conversion process, you will be updated weekly with emails & images, even video call if required all to enable you to view your vehicle as it under goes the several stages of its conversion. As we specialise specifically in the conversion of the VW T5, T6, Caddy, Caddy-Maxi & Crafter, We know every detail of these vehicles and can guarantee you peace of mind and the quality you deserve throughout the build process. All of our designs and layouts have been developed over a number of years, with continual assessment and modification to allow you the most usability from your vehicle.
New Wave Custom Conversions are fully recognised by all insurance companies for the VW Conversions that we complete. A detailed Invoice and Certificate of the works completed is supplied to all our clients as proof of conversion and costs. (The DVLA will ask for proof of conversion to complete any log book change over). This can make a huge difference to the premium you pay, as well as the number of insurers that will cover you for the true value of your converted vehicle.
