Suppose you own a late model, unconverted Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Dodge Grand Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country, Chevy Traverse, or Chrysler Pacifica, but now find yourself in need of a vehicle that is wheelchair-accessible. In that case, we may have an alternative solution to save you some cash.
BraunAbility® and Vantage Mobility International (VMI), two of the world’s largest converters of handicap vans and wheelchair accessible vehicles, have a program to convert your existing vehicle and turn it into a wheelchair van or handicap accessible vehicle. To qualify, your current vehicle must fit within their wheelchair conversion requirements. This method is what we call converting a “Customer Supplied Chassis,” and this can be a tremendous cost-saving option for those with a late model vehicle fitting within the manufacturer’s current wheelchair conversion requirements.
Below is the most recent information from BraunAbility and VMI on which vehicle years and types they are currently accepting for wheelchair conversion and the requirements they have established for each. We can also have your van converted by Adaptive Vans. They are able to convert select Dodge Grand Caravans, Chrysler Pacificas and Chrysler Voyagers.
If you feel this might be a viable option for your current needs, please contact one of our mobility consultants today! Our consultants will provide you with a FREE evaluation of your current situation and future needs to help determine if this solution fits.
