POSITIONING AND SECURING
THE WHEELCHAIR

AccessiVan wheelchair vehicle conversions are built around the wheelchair passenger with the driver, partner, and carer in mind for the simplest of operations. Wheelchair access, entry and exit on the gently sloping wheelchair ramp from the vehicle is quick and effortless. Securing the wheelchair passenger inside the vehicle is given the highest priority for safety, while ensuring maximum visibility. The wheelchair user is positioned low down and centrally in the wheelchair vehicles, which ensures a smooth, comfortable ride as well as making it easier to talk to fellow passengers.

PARKING OF OUR DISABLED VEHICLES

One of the most distinctive features of our AccessiVan vehicle conversion is its rear wheelchair access. This allows you to park in any parking spot, regardless of clearance on the sides. Unlike side-entry wheelchair access vehicle conversions, we designed our wheelchair conversions so you can never get blocked by somebody parking too close beside you. The AccessiVan gives you total wheelchair access freedom.

WHEELCHAIR VEHICLE SAFETY

From a safety standpoint, we made the AccessiVan even stronger than before, with a structural tubular safety cage surrounding the converted wheelchair access lowered floor. It is on the forefront of automotive adaptive equipment design.

WARRANTY

The warranty for the vehicle conversions is covered by a FIVE YEAR / 60,000 mile hassle free warranty. When you purchase disabled vehicles from Accessible Wheels, you can be assured that we will look after you, even after the warranty has finished.

PROFESSIONAL ADVICE

The most important step towards finding the right mobility solution is to get the proper advice first before making any decisions regarding the purchase of wheelchair vehicles. (Car dealers are the last persons to advice you on your mobility needs, disabled vehicles & wheelchair access). The first person to consult and to obtain input from is your professional Therapist. Another important matter is the type and size of wheelchair you will be using to travel around. If you are planning to drive, a professional driving instructor must be consulted. Once you have the information these professionals can provide, then you are ready to contact Accessible Wheels to discuss your vehicle conversions needs.

QUALITY COMPARISON

We don't need to compare their wheelchair access conversions with our competitors, because we know that we are bringing you the best vehicle conversions possible for a reasonable price. Things like functionality, safety, finish and quality are most important to us. You will find that other competitors will discount their wheelchair conversions solely based on getting you to sign up with them, but remember that they will need to cut corners to complete the wheelchair access conversion for the money quoted. Others will offer you expensive conversions and disabled vehicle features you don't really need. Be assured, that if you decide to put your trust in Accessible Wheels, that you will not be disappointed with the end result.
