Reasons Why You Should Budget for a Mobility Van
Spring has finally arrived in Canada! Gone are the days of needing to drive through slushy, slippery streets, fight your way through ten foot snow banks and deal with the frigid cold. The snow is melted, the weather is getting warmer every single day and slowly, but surely, the leaves and grass are turning green. Wheelchair users are happy as the clear sidewalks make getting around a lot easier and more inviting to get out and about.
With the change in season, now is a really good time to buy a rear entry van in Winnipeg. The new models are in, the prices are great right now and there are both new and used units available for sale.
New Fiscal Budgets Are Being Approved
With the start of new fiscal year for many non-profit, First Nation and government organizations, now is a good time to review the organization’s vehicle needs for the next twelve months. There may have been a need in the past that the previous fiscal budget couldn’t approve the spend on a rear entry van or the needs of the community may have changed recently with added demand for a wheelchair van. Often we find in some communities a new need arises with the building of a new health facility or several members of the community needing wheelchair transportation.
For private individuals, tax season can be a good time of year to buy a rear entry wheelchair van. Sometimes, it can be a bit of a challenge to come up with a down payment when leasing or financing a wheelchair accessible vehicle. If you are fortunate enough to have received a tax return, the timing could be right to buy a rear entry van. There are several great financing and lease options available through MoveMobility and more information about them can be found here. For example, with $5000 down, a 2016 rear entry Dodge Grand Caravan is $120+tax weekly on a seven year finance at 6.74%. As well, additional incentives are offered from time to time making now a good time to buy a rear entry van. Learn more about the 2016 Rear Entry Dodge Grand Caravan click here.
New Vehicle Models
The spring marks a good time to look at buying a new rear entry vehicle. All the new models are out now for Dodge and Toyota rear entry vans. Also, with the new van models being released this does create some opportunity for 2015’s to drop in price. Check out a Review of the 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan as well as the Toyota rear entry van. The Dodge Grand Caravan is the most affordable option available on the market right now and offers up to six different seating configurations as well as two wheelchair positions. The most popular model for families is where we use stationary seats in the mid row which allow the wheelchair to be positioned in the middle row with the siblings. Another option which people choose is the option with flip and fold seats in the mid row. This allows for the wheelchair to be transported in the middle or back of the van. Lastly, one of the reasons why our customers like to buy a rear entry van like the Dodge Grand Caravan is the option to add a 3rd row flip & fold bench seat to transport additional passengers.
With new fiscal years starting, tax season ending and the new van models released, now is the right time to buy a rear entry van.
