Accessible vans for the handicapped give thousands of people the freedom to work, shop, travel, and do things that have been difficult in the past. It is now possible for even those confined to wheelchairs to have the ability to drive. The wheelchair ramp or lift gives easy access to the interior where tie downs hold the chair in place during movement. Vans are available for rental or for purchase. If you are not sure about the accessories and design, rent a van for a few days or for a trip and see what works for you before you buy.

The option of raising the roof or lowering the floor gives plenty of headroom for moving about with the wheelchair. Scooter and wheelchair accessible vans are equipped with front and rear air conditioning and heating for the added comfort of the passenger. Hand controls are available on special order for those desiring to drive from the convenience of the wheelchair.

Options with Accessible Vans

There are handicapped accessible vans with 6-way power controls for the driver seat. This offers movement for those individuals desiring to transfer from the wheelchair to the driver seat. The options and accessories are available to design a van that will fit the requirements of anyone confined to a wheelchair. These choices are available for mini vans and full size vans.

Power controls for the doors, ramp, or lift make entry possible with little or no assistance. The plush interior of most accessible vans gives the feeling of luxury. There is no need to sacrifice looks and design for comfort and performance when you can have it all. You can travel in style and have all the conveniences needed. Some of the vans will seat up to four or six passengers in addition to the wheelchair space.
