Why Buying Used Handicap Vans with New Conversions Is Smart
Sunday January 01, 2012 - Purchasing a new versus a used wheelchair van is a subject of endless debate among people in the market for transportation. The lower cost of a used handicap van is appealing - as are the latest models with the newest technology. However, AMS Vans offers the best of both worlds to customers looking to buy a handicap van. By purchasing one of our late model, certified pre-owned accessible vans with a new conversion, our customers can take advantage of the latest AMS adapted mobility technology - without the huge depreciation that occurs on a new vehicle.
On average, once the consumer drives a new minivan off the dealer lot, the vehicle instantly depreciates by thousands of dollars. Buying a used handicap van from AMS Vans avoids costly depreciation and saves you money. In fact, most used vans with a new AMS Vans handicap van conversion cost about the same as buying a new minivan unconverted!
Our used handicap vans are late-model, gently used vehicles with no accident history. Many come loaded with great extra features. All vehicles newly modified by AMS pass a 125 point inspection before, during, and after the handicap conversion is installed to become a certified used minivan. In addition, the AMS handicap van conversion process does not void any remaining warranty on the van itself.
When the time comes to upgrade to a newer AMS handicap van or to sell it altogether, AMS Vans also saves you money. We use minivans from Honda, Dodge, Chrysler, and Volkswagen not only for their quality, but for their consistently high resale values. And AMS customers can take advantage of our nationwide mobility classifieds to list their handicap van for free for the first month.
Buying a late model, certified pre-owned wheelchair van with a new conversion from AMS Vans is a smart transportation choice. Start with a vehicle that costs less, and get more while you own the used handicap van and when it comes time to sell.
