Canada Day typically marks the first official day of summer vacation season. From trips up to the lake or across the country to see family, the next nine weeks will be very busy for most people. Getting out and getting around is critical to enjoy all that summer has to offer. Renting a wheelchair van offers a great option to explore and to have the freedom provided by a standard vehicle. But before going and renting a van, there are three important things to know. Knowing these three things will save you money, time and effort.

 

#1 – Know how you are planning on using the vehicle

When renting a wheelchair van it is important to know who will be driving the van. With both side and rear entry options available for rent, you want [...]

There are many options to choose from when considering a side entry minivan. Options include in-floor or fold-out ramps, with the option of power or manual operation. Regardless of whether the wheelchair user will be accompanied by an attendant or whether he or she needs to drive the vehicle, MoveMobility provides a solution for every need. Power In-Floor Ramp

The power in-floor ramp conversion allows for the entry door to be free from obstruction and an uncluttered interior, maximizing interior space. With the touch of a button, the in-floor ramp deploys, allowing the wheelchair user to easily enter and exit the van. This conversion is strongly recommended for individuals in a wheelchair who would like to drive the vehicle.

Manual In-Floor Ramp

The manual in-floor ramp conversion is perfect for wheelchair users who travel with an attendant. The front passenger seat is removable and flexible seating options are available. Scraping is minimized with the conversion's high ground clearance.

Power Foldout Ramp The power foldout ramp conversion is highly functional and easy to use. With the touch of a button, the bi-fold ramp unfolds and lowers to the ground. [...]

What makes for the better buy?

Debating The New vs Used Wheelchair Van Argument

Ice Cream Scoops In Bowl

Debating about a new or used wheelchair van is like debating which is better: mint or strawberry ice cream? It all comes down to looking at what works best for your personal or business situation.

With that said, buying new or used wheelchair van and/or vehicle is an important question to answer when looking at buying a vehicle. I think instead of debating the merits of one over the other, there are other questions that need to be answered first to truly find the right mobility vehicle solution for you and your family.

6 Questions To Answer Before Deciding If New or Used Is The Way To Go Question #1 – What kind of wheelchair van are you looking for?

This is a good place to start when you are looking at buying a wheelchair [...]

Choosing an entry method for your wheelchair van requires some thought and consideration. There are several questions to be answered to find the right fit. In the end, taking the time to answer these questions will make choosing the right wheelchair van easy and give you the peace of mind that you chose the right vehicle.

#1 – Do you have a preference for side or rear entry?

You may have a preference on the type of entry method you like to use. It may have been from a past wheelchair accessible vehicle you have ridden in or it may be because it is what you drive now. This can save a lot of time if you have already made a decision on which wheelchair van conversion is best for you and your family.

#2 – How many people will be in the [...]

To lease or to finance a wheelchair van has been a topic greatly debated over the years and many web pages have been dedicated to the topic. My goal over the next few hundreds of words is to shed some light on wheelchair van financing & leasing to help you make an informed choice the next time you are ready to buy a wheelchair accessible vehicle.

Van Financing & Leasing Helps You Attain Freedom Sooner

I think it is important to look overall at why financing and leasing are a good thing to do when it comes to purchasing a vehicle. The biggest reason we see here at Move Mobility is most people plan their expenses on a month-by-month basis. Most of our customers look at their expenses and say, “what can we realistically afford each month to pay for a wheelchair van?” Once that number is decided upon, it makes the whole purchase process [...]
