Increased Freedom and Self Reliance

The biggest advantage of investing in a wheelchair accessible van for sale is that you or your loved one in a wheelchair receives an increased sense of freedom and self-reliance. If your vehicle isn’t designed to easily accommodate a wheelchair, daily life is simply more difficult. For instance; you may be limited on how far you can go, and even if you can use your current vehicle, you may have to fold and stow a manual chair or perhaps not able to travel with your power-chair altogether. Finally, your loved one may have to be lifted into the vehicle which can lead to injury not only for the chair user but for the caretaker alike.

In contrast, with a wheelchair van, the individual in the wheelchair can easily transition into a lowered floor minivan while comfortably seated in their wheelchair. Which not only saves time and increases comfort. But also provides a sense of independence to travel more freely.

Enhanced Safety

As you shop for a wheelchair van for sale, you may notice that they are designed to keep the wheelchair in a safe location while you’re driving. If you simply put a wheelchair into the open space in a regular van or another large vehicle, the person in the wheelchair is not safely transported. In an accident or even in the course of a routine drive, the wheelchair may become unstable, injuring the individual or other occupants in the vehicle.

Modifications for Wheelchair Bound Drivers

Hand controls which are mounted on the steering column then take the place of the normal gas and brake pedals. Allowing for the wheelchair van to be operated as if it were never modified.

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!
