How Do You Finance a Wheelchair Van?
How Do You Finance a Wheelchair Van?
There are several ways to finance a wheelchair van. Here are some options to consider:
- Loans: You can take out a loan to finance the purchase of a wheelchair van. You can apply for a loan from a bank, credit union, or online lender. Make sure to compare interest rates and terms from different lenders to get the best deal.
- Leasing: You can lease a wheelchair van from a dealership. Leasing can be a good option if you don’t have a large down payment or want lower monthly payments. However, you will not own the van at the end of the lease.
- Government Programs: There are government programs that provide assistance to individuals with disabilities who need a wheelchair van. For example, the Veterans Administration (VA) provides financial assistance for veterans who need a wheelchair van. Medicaid may also cover the cost of a wheelchair van if it is deemed medically necessary.
- Grants and Charities: There are organizations that provide grants to individuals with disabilities who need a wheelchair van. Some charities also provide free or low-cost wheelchair vans to those in need.
- Personal Funds: You can finance the purchase of a wheelchair van using your own personal funds. You may be able to use savings, a home equity loan, or other sources of income to pay for the van.
About Adaptive Vans
Since 1979, Adaptive Vans has had one clear goal: to provide our customers with excellence, simplicity and convenience at an affordable price. We are a proud charter member of the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) and align with their mission to improve transportation options for people with disabilities. We strive to produce high quality wheelchair accessible vehicles to help people with disabilities lead happy, healthy and more mobile lives.
We also take safety very seriously. As a member of NMEDA, we strictly adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and participate in NMEDA’s Quality Assurance Program™ (QAP), a nationally recognized accreditation program for the mobility equipment industry developed to promote quality, dependability, and safety.
In 1979 Adaptive Mobility Systems, Inc. began by 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. 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 vehicle and exceeding safety standards.
From 1999 to 2017 all our conversions 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 conversions 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.
Based in Tucker, Georgia, our production facility is staffed with skilled professionals, using the latest technology to create converted vehicles that are easy to maintain and service at one of our many service centers across the country. Whether selecting a van from our inventory or converting a van purchased from another source, our finished products appear and perform nearly identical from a vehicle purchased directly from the manufacturer’s showroom. We are able to perform conversions that match up with our customers’ needs and desires. Whether they are looking for side or rear entry, we are able to come up with the perfect solution at a price that is well within reach for most families.
Thanks to our long-standing reputation as a trusted brand, we are able to work with mobility dealers and car dealerships to help them provide their customers with the freedom and accessibility that a wheelchair-accessible van can deliver.Safety, reliability and quality.
