How can we get 2 powerchairs into one vehicle

We recently attended our local SMART Centre as my husband who was my main carer has had 5 strokes and therefore like me he has to use a powerchair if we are out and about. We both cannot break down a chair or manually fix it when hoisted into the vehicle. We attended a national mobility vehicle provider and the only option we were offered was the Ford Independence . It took both chairs but a major issue was that neither of us could climb into the van and I am on a restricted driving licence which would prevent me driving such a large vehicle. We have contacted Motability and they have advised me to contact companies myself. The word unique is being bandied around re our situation but I refuse to believe that others have not had and hopefully solved this issue. I'm sorry that this post is so long but any information, advice or signposting to other organisations would be sincerely appreciated.
