Behold, the Beauty Behind a Conversion Van

"Freedom, Space, and Pricing are key when considering your next conversion van."

The term “handicap van,” might elicit the image of a clunky, bus-like or large older style full size vans. While the appearance may not matter to some if the vehicle runs well, many children and adults with disabilities feel like they stand out and possibly attract unwanted attention. The beauty behind a modern lowered floor minivan or conversion van is the aesthetically pleasing body style that’s nearly indistinguishable from the original O.E.M. design of the van.

Beyond the sleek and discrete design, a wheelchair accessible minivan or conversion van offers families and people with disabilities several other benefits. When constructed well, a wheelchair accessible minivan will greatly improve mobility and overall quality of life.

Simple, Safe and Durable

Above all else – a wheelchair accessible minivan or conversion van from Adaptive Vans is safe. All vehicles are extensively crash tested and meet and or exceed all required FVMSS and NHTSA safety standards. We believe that keeping it simple through a non-invasive design is the best way to avoid any mechanical issues or reliability complications. For example, our conversion van doesn’t include complex on touch systems or kneeling systems. Keeping it simple and safe by removing 20% of the items that create 80% of the issues– more often than not – is the best way to avoid malfunctions down the road.

Freedom

Conversion vans or wheelchair accessible minivans are designed to look nearly identical to the original van body style. Having a sleek design that blends in with the unconverted conversion vans or minivans provide people with disabilities the opportunity to move through life without drawing unwanted attention. Not many people look twice at a traditional, bulkier, accessible full size vans, but to those inside it can seem like the opposite is true. Taking away reasons for self-consciousness gives freedom to people with disabilities to enjoy the day without fear of judgement.

Certain types of conversion or wheelchair accessible minivans also give drivers with disabilities independence to drive themselves around without having to rely on other persons to help. This independence sparks confidence and contributes to happier lives!

Space

A conversion van or wheelchair accessible minivan is the perfect solution for larger families, groups traveling together, or for anyone who appreciates a little extra space. While the exterior body style is only slightly modified, the interior floor is dropped 10” to 14” inches to allow plenty of room for people coming and going, and for those riding in a wheelchair so there is plenty head clearance while entering and exiting the vehicle. Additionally, the entire floor is lowered in all wheelchair accessible minivans to allow room for the wheelchair to move about both in the mid row and passenger side front positions. A little extra space goes a long way to provide meaningful comfort and functionality for the wheelchair user.

Pricing

Pricing for a conversion van can vary greatly depending on who you buy from, especially if you’re purchasing through a mobility dealership and not factory direct. Mobility Dealers tend to ramp up the price on a conversion van in order to turn a profit based upon low volume of sales. Since they’re a third-party vendor and not a manufacturer, they have overhead and employees to pay, so they inflate the price and pass the burden of expense to the end user.

Purchasing your vehicle factory direct from Adaptive Vans means you’ll get at-wholesale pricing, saving you thousands of dollars you’d likely spend at the Mobility dealership.

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!
