Wheelchair Van for Sale: How to Choose a Model that is Right for You
There is more to buying a handicap minivan than simply visiting your local dealership and then picking from the rows upon rows of vehicles the one wheelchair van for sale that strikes your fancy. Instead, functionality is usually the first concern. Even there, specialized needs, tastes, and preferences can make model selection tricky. It does not have to be this way.
Are You a Driver or a Passenger?
It sounds like an odd question, but consider that the 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Handicap Minivan lets you remove the front seats to take the driving position in a wheelchair. The 2013 Honda Odyssey Handicap Minivan offers step and roll seating, which makes the removal even easier.
Do You Have a Limited Budget?
For the car buyer who does not mind paying extra for a new vehicle, there is the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan ADA Handicap Minivan. The Braun conversion features a manual ramp that leads up to the side entry, Altro non-slip flooring and all the creature comforts and style points you would expect from a new model.
If you do not mind dialing back the looks a little for savings, a 2013 Honda Odyssey Handicap Minivan may be a good choice. Although plenty of late-model conveniences, it is a used van with a little wear. If you are flexible on the color and similar details, this choice can net you appreciable savings.
Do You Prefer Side or Rear Entry Models?
The van that we just discussed offers a manual rear entry ramp. Entering and exiting the vehicle is safe and comfortable in a mall parking lot where the reserved parking spots are rarely available. In contrast, the 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Braun handicap minivan comes with a power fold out ramp and power sliding doors that allow for side entry. Choosing this model lets you park the van anywhere and still safely exit and enter from the side.
