How Much Does a Wheelchair Van Cost?
This is a common question that we receive at MoveMobility; as every wheelchair user, transportation provider and community has unique needs, there is not a one size fits all van. There are two main components that make up the cost of a wheelchair accessible vehicle:
1. The van itself.
2. The conversion (process of making it wheelchair accessible).
For personal use, the conversion (not including the van) can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000 on top of the price of the van. This cost is dependant on the type of vehicle and the cost of the wheelchair accessible vehicle. Additional features include, but aren’t limited to, manual or powered ramp, additional seating, van make and model, and more. If you’re looking for pricing for an accessible van for an organization or community, call 888-657-4010 today to get in touch with our Mobility Consultants.
For insight on the cost of a wheelchair van, visit our Inventory Page on our website, which is a great resource to see current pricing for a variety of wheelchair accessible vehicles. When deciding between a new or pre-owned accessible vehicle, it’s always important to first determine your overall budget. Initial costs of pre-owned vehicles are generally more budget friendly when compared to new vehicles. All MoveMobility’s wheelchair accessible vehicles are rigorously inspected to ensure they meet all safety standards and are in immaculate condition before leaving our locations.
Rear Entry of Side Entry
Rear Entry or Side Entry refer to where on the van the ramp or lift is located for wheelchair access. The choice between the Rear Entry or Side Entry conversion not only affects the cost of the vehicle, but also the availability depending on whether you are looking for a new or pre-owned van. Rear Entry conversions can be done to new or gently used vehicles. However, Side Entry conversions require more extensive modifications so must be done using new vehicles provided by MoveMobility. The cost for a Rear Entry conversion to a minivan, such as the Dodge Grand Caravan or Toyota Sienna typically ranges between $15,000 and $20,000. Whereas, the Side Entry conversions can cost up to $40,000. The cost of the wheelchair accessible van conversion is an important factor to consider when deciding what type of van will work best for your accessibility needs.
