3 Used Wheelchair Van Shopping Mistakes to Avoid

Purchasing a wheelchair van is a large investment, and decisions should be made with careful consideration. While shopping, some people experience a range of emotions, including both stress and excitement. Amidst all the excitement, there can sometimes be a lingering fear that you might end up purchasing the wrong vehicle or pay too much for it.

At Bussani Mobility, we’re committed to preventing this from happening to you. We’ll help you have an enjoyable and successful experience by assisting you in determining the vehicle that’s best for you and your budget. 

If you’re considering buying a used wheelchair van, we suggest that you be aware of and avoid these common care shopping mistakes:

1. Purchasing a Vehicle with an Unknown History

When you go it on your own, purchasing a used vehicle can be a gamble. Sometimes you get lucky and find one that runs like a dream, while other times, you may unknowingly end up with a vehicle that you just can’t rely on. But by going through your local mobility dealer, they’ll make sure you know the vehicle’s history and that it has been fully inspected for safety.

2. Settling for Mysterious Wheelchair Van Financing Terms

Financing for a wheelchair van is similar to a traditional vehicle. Once you’ve completed the financing application, you’ll know how much you can afford to spend on a vehicle. Your mobility dealer will review which used or reconditioned vehicles they have in their inventory that are within your budget. The mobility specialist will go over your conversion options and how they will impact the overall cost of the vehicle. If there are any wheelchair van financing terms that you don’t understand, ask for clarification. Make sure you fully understand what you are signing.

3. Purchasing a Vehicle from a Middle Source

Whether you are purchasing a mobility vehicle or a kitchen appliance, there’s no substitute for buying direct from a reputable source. Be extra careful when considering buying a vehicle online, without a complete, in-person inspection. The best way to ensure you have a positive car buying experience is to purchase from a trusted mobility dealer, such as Bussani Mobility, with a storefront business location where you can always go to speak to your mobility specialist and get help. At Bussani Mobility, we’re committed to helping you find the right mobility vehicle for your needs, so you can get mobile and get back out there.
