Top Three Tips For Finding a Wheelchair Van That’s Right For You


It’s Your Van. Get The Most Out of It


When it comes to getting a wheelchair adapted vehicle that’s right for you, you deserve to be a little picky. Afterall, it’s your comfortable connection to all that wherever you call home, and the entirety of Canada, have to offer. But, just how picky can you be when choosing a wheelchair van or wheelchair adapted vehicle that not only suits your needs, but gets you where you need to be in comfort and style?

When you choose MoveMobility, you’ll have plenty of wriggle room for choosing the van that’s just right for you. Why? Because MoveMobility knows you have many concerns and questions, and we offer new and new-to-you wheelchair vans that are sure to meet your needs and wants. Knowing this, we’ve compiled a brief, albeit informative, buyer’s guide for those looking for a new or pre-owned wheelchair van. Ready to learn more? Take a peek below for some helpful tips and hints for purchasing your next wheelchair van.


Tip Number Three: Get Your Budget Squared Away

As much as we’d all like that top-of-the-line, souped up wheelchair van that has all of the bells and whistles, it can sometimes be financially out of reach. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find a van that’s equally comfortable and right for you. Knowing how much you can feasibly spend may mean the difference between getting the van that’s right for your needs and unnecessarily getting yourself into debt for a vehicle that, while attractive, is priced beyond your budget.

Of course, new models are the more costly. But that doesn’t mean all new models need to break the bank. Move Mobility offers numerous new model wheelchair vans that may well fit your price range, as well as a host of pre-owned van options that are sure to offer safety, security, and style. Whichever you prefer, Move Mobility has you covered with a listing of both new and new-to-you wheelchair vans.


Tip Number Two: Know Which Van is Right For You . . . or Don’t

It isn’t always easy to know just which wheelchair van is right for you and your needs. You know you’ll obviously want a reliable wheelchair restraint system, but do you know what else you might need (or won’t need)? That’s why it’s important to take the time to talk to a professional concerning wheelchair adaptive vehicles that best fit you and your needs. When you choose Move Mobility, you’ll have access to seasoned advice that helps you decide which model (new or pre-owned) is right for you. No matter your questions (or lack thereof), our knowledgeable staff has the experience and know-how to support you in finding the right vehicle.


Tip Number One: Buy, Finance or Rent Short Term?

Often, those looking for wheelchair vans do so with the intention of buying and making them their own. However, if your current van isn’t exactly road ready (but it should be! Check out our helpful tips for keeping your van ready to tackle any distance you drive it) but you know you have a road trip coming up, then renting a van is might right for you. This frees you of the time restraints for getting your van fixed and making it on the road in time. Moreover, renting gives you the option of test driving a model you might be considering buying (depending on rental availability).

But if you’re looking for a more concrete option, financing can be a helpful alternative to and outright purchase or short term renting. The financing partner with whom we are associated affords you the opportunity to own your vehicle at affordable monthly payments. If financing sounds like it might be best for you, check out the info on our Financing page.
