WHEELCHAIR VANS - Best Places to Look? New/Used?

Posted by Karen812 on Dec 8, 2010 9:37 am

Hello Everyone!

Need some input on wheelchair vans.  Where is the best place to find one?  Craigslist?   Is it better to have a side-entry or rear-entry ramp?  Better to purchase brand new or used?  Are the prices usually negotiable?

Thanks for any advice?

Karen

Usually side entry is best. Rear entry means the seats in the van are usually removed, so you can't have other passengers.

Rollx vans in Minnesota is pretty good, but it doesn't look like you're in the area. If at all possible, I'd suggest new as used can have problems come up quickly.

We're in Philadelphia area.  The vans are so expensive brand new and pretty costly used, with most having plenty of miles on them already!

The search is on!  Thank you for the advice.

You should check out this website, it lists accessible van dealers by state.http://www.accesstravelcenter.com/van_dealers.cfm  There is also a company called BraunAbility that has a nationwide network of dealers.

I'm in your situation 7 years later. I live in the suburbs of Philly. What did you end up getting? I hope you still check this site? You're advice is exactly what I need right now? Do you drive from your chair or transfer to 6 way swivel seat?
