Mobile fitting sits at the heart of our client promise. We know it can be difficult to get a vehicle into a garage, and that it’s something a lot of people would rather avoid, so we come direct to you.

And as a British company, based in Bristol for the last 35 years, Dave Bates Controls offers an unparalleled level of service. We know how important safety, mobility, and trust are to our clients, and that’s why we’re relied upon by driving instructors, official dealerships, and parts manufacturers across the UK.

And in our capacity as a registered He-Man dual controls installer for the south west, and as a Mobility Adaptation Partner, we also work with major dealerships across the south west, including BMW, VW, Ford, Volvo, and more.


Dave Bates Controls is a family-operated business, and has been fitting in Bristol, Bath and the south west region for 35 years, providing a friendly, competitive and reliable service.
