FAQs About Mobility Vehicles

Why would someone need a handicap accessible vehicle? What sorts of disabilities do you accommodate?

We don’t like to use words like “handicap vehicles” and “handicap vans.” Because, our focus is not on a person’s disability, but rather on what it takes to give them maximum accessibility and freedom. We’ve worked with people who have temporary problems with their mobility and need some help operating a vehicle, as well as those with permanent mobility concerns, like quadriplegia, who want to lead an active life. Whatever your mobility issue is, we want to help you find a solution that fits your lifestyle. Please give us a call at 844-450-0682 today and let’s start talking about how to increase your mobility.

Is it better to buy new wheelchair accessible vehicles, used vehicles, or convert my own car?

There is no set answer to this question, as each has their advantages. Some vehicles simply can’t be converted for wheelchair accessibility or use with scooters, but we have done some highly individualized customizations over the years. What’s important is that we only sell the highest quality, certified vehicles, so whether they are new or used, you drive home in a reliable vehicle that you can depend on. If we have a used vehicle that matches your specific need, it can give you significant cost savings. We also have the finest selection of new, accessible vehicles to choose from. We would love to welcome you to one of our facilities, so you can see the range of vehicles for yourself.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of side-entry wheelchair accessible vans, as compared to rear-entry wheelchair accessible vans?

The main advantage of a rear-entry wheelchair accessible car is the ease of loading and unloading. There is usually space behind a vehicle in parking lots and driveways. In these instances, a rear-mounted wheelchair lift usually makes for easy entry and exit from a vehicle. On the other hand, rear-entry vehicles don’t easily allow the person with limited mobility to get to the front of the vehicle or to drive, as other seating is in the way. There are many more subtle choices to consider when evaluating a wheelchair accessible vehicle. To learn more and discuss the advantages of various options with a knowledgeable expert, call us at 844-450-0682 today.
