About Adaptive Vans

We Know Wheelchair Accessible Vans, With Over 40 Years in The Industry

Our Mission

We strive to offer the best value wheelchair accessible vans in the industry with factory-direct pricing and high-quality products.

Our History


In 1979 Adaptive Mobility Systems, Inc. was founded and began installing lifts and custom components in vans for wheelchair accessibility. In 1999, under current management, we designed and manufactured our first lowered floor minivan conversion. As a charter member of NMEDA, still in good standing, we have built and crash tested our minimally invasive conversions on the Dodge, Chrysler, VW, Kia, Honda, and Toyota minivan platforms while not compromising the structural integrity of the wheelchair accessible van and exceeding safety standards.


From 2000 to 2017 all our conversion vans were sold exclusively by ams vans, an internet marketer, under the branding “AMS”. In late 2017 ams vans sold its business, ending our long partnership.


We now independently sell our wheelchair accessible vans to mobility dealers all over the United States, and recently to the public with the new branding “Adaptive Vans.” Using the knowledge and skills we gained from converting over 7,000 vans we believe we can offer the strongest, simplest, and safest wheelchair accessible vans at a price no other manufacturer can compete with.

What Makes Our Wheelchair Accessible Vans Special?


Beyond our extensive safety crash testing, our wheelchair accessible vans are designed with our customer and their family in mind. Often, the driver of a wheelchair accessible van is not in a wheelchair, but rather a caregiver, parent or spouse.


We design and convert our vans to appear as close to the original model of the vehicle as possible. As our name suggests, our wheelchair accessible vans are designed to be adaptable – adapted versions of the original vehicle so our customers don’t feel like they’re losing their trusted car and gaining a clunky wheelchair accessible van.


Our minimally-invasive conversions keep more of the original vehicle than our competitors. Additionally, our conversions are simple – only using high-quality components. This means a less complicated vehicle and less repairs.


We understand the sensitivity surrounding the appearance of other traditional handicap van body styles, and the desire to have a wheelchair accessible van that looks like a non-altered car.

What is a ‘Conversion Van?’

The make, model, year, and mileage of your vehicle will determine whether or not the vehicle is fit to be converted into a handicap accessible vehicle.

Where Does Our Inventory Come From? A.K.A. "Donor-Vans"

The majority of the vans we source for both our (Mobility Dealer re-sellers) and retail consumers arrive from the large rental car companies such as: Enterprise, Avis, and Budget. When rental vehicles reach pre-determined mileage limits (which vary between rental car companies) they are de-fleeted or removed from inventory, safety inspected, then offered up for sale at public dealer auctions. This is where having long term relationships in place with the Rental-Car Fleet Managers truly pay’s dividends. This relationship also allows us “first-pick” of only the best examples available on the market at that precise moment. In fact, we purchase these (pick of the litter vans) several at a time.  In doing so, it reduces our costs by avoiding additional auction and transportation fees, that would otherwise be passed onto you. By avoiding the fiercely competitive used-car market auctions, we’re able to purchase vehicles at a fair price. Unlike the retail automotive giants such as; Carmax, Drivetime, and Carvana. Which end-up paying a premium price for blemished vehicles, simply based upon market pressures to stock available inventory.

In Bob the Builder’s “Market Watch” Adaptive Vans CEO Bob “The Builder” Boston will show you what the current and available used market van prices are. Including special purchases of new vans from various automotive sources if we feel they warrant our attention.

We will then easily categorize them by each manufacturer:

Dodge Caravan, Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Pacifica

This information will then be updated as wholesale market conditions change in real time. With this inside information, you’ll clearly see what you will and should pay for a van PRIOR to the conversion based upon our pass-through, insider-wholesale pricing.

So, take it from me “Bob the Builder”; Don’t overpay for a wheelchair accessible conversion because the competition refuses to provide transparent pricing. Factory direct savings means you pay a fair, non-inflated, transparent, wholesale price for the van AND the best possible conversion price available on the market now.

Give us a call today and allow my experienced Sales Team the opportunity to serve your Family through every step of the process. Because we’re not satisfied until your new accessible van is built, delivered and parked in your driveway!

Just thought you should know!
