Why AMS Vans Are So Much Lower in Price Compared to Other Wheelchair Van Dealers
Tuesday December 13, 2011 - When you have to make a decision to purchase a wheelchair van, sometimes it's hard to know where to start. The need for the safety of your passengers and the durability of the vehicle must be of the uppermost industry standards, and AMS Vans accomplishes that and more, all while keeping costs low and value high. Comparing mobility dealers, it's easy to see--from the online selection to the delivery options of your wheelchair van--when you buy a wheelchair van from AMS Vans, you're making the best decision.
Wheelchair Vans Direct from the Manufacturer
What can ordinarily be one of the most frustrating aspects of purchasing a wheelchair van is determining what the best deal available is and how to afford it. That particular worry is minimized with your ability to purchase your AMS wheelchair van online directly from the manufacturer, without the concern or hassle of dealing with a local mobility dealer. By circumventing a middle man, there is a savings of $8,000 to $10,000 off the final price of the vehicle--and that savings is passed along to you! In addition to eliminating the mobility dealer markup costs, being able to shop online means you save yourself time and energy by not having to run around from dealer to dealer, searching for the best deal. Finally, AMS adds one more convenience for you, by having the wheelchair van delivered to you at your door, wherever that may be in America.
Streamlined Wheelchair Van Features
Another reason why AMS wheelchair vans are so much more affordable than other mobility vehicles is the incredible attention that is paid to streamlining many of the handicap conversion features without sacrificing quality, safety, or convenience. All of our wheelchair van conversions are designed with a minimum amount of movable components which streamlines the functionality of the wheelchair accessible ramp and the possibility of costly repairs.
Streamlining also means that any expensive hydraulic equipment has been eliminated in AMS wheelchair vans. Instead, we have lowered the floor by 10" and extended our ramps by 4" to allow for a lower ramp incline angle. By not including a hydraulic kneeling system, AMS eliminates 20% of the mechanical items that cause 80% of the repair problems in a wheelchair van. This makes the van easier to operate as well as simpler to repair, should there be any future operational issues. In addition, rather than having the wheelchair ramp on your wheelchair van be powered by the vehicle's computer, it is instead run from the minivan's battery and is operated on a pulley system that is easy to repair by any mechanic, should the need arise. By eliminating those kinds of systems, we've cut our wheelchair van prices by thousands compared to other mobility vehicles. Our handicap accessible vans even come with a great wheelchair van conversion warranty!
Don't just take our word for it. We encourage you to shop around and compare. We're so confident you won't find a wheelchair van deal as affordable as ours, we offer a low price guarantee* on all of our used adapted minivans with new ramp conversions.
