Learn About Converting Your Van
At Van Products, we believe that an educated consumer is smarter consumer. Whether this is your first time purchasing a handicap accessible vehicle, or you consider yourself a ‘seasoned pro’, we encourage you to learn more about converting your van and the process that is involved.
Top Things You Should Know
Always use a trusted mobility equipment and/or handicap van dealer to purchase your handicap van. Why? These dealers have built a reputation on customer service and care and are certified to buy, modify and/or sell handicap vans and accessories.
Consult with a mobility specialist.
Even if you have been through the purchase process before, mobility specialists are trained experts in the field of wheelchair van conversions, and other handicap accessible equipment and accessories.
Consult with Your Doctor.
It is always in your best interest to speak with your doctor, and in some cases, have your doctor work with you and the mobility specialist to better assess what your specific mobility needs will be presently as well as in the future. This may help you determine which mobility features you should include in your van.
Test Drive a Handicap Van Before Buying.
Before making any final decisions to buy a handicap van, always be sure to test drive it. At Van Products, we offer custom demonstrations to show you how mobility features of the van will work in your day-to-day life. We also provide on-site demonstrations at your home.
Resale Value on Handicap Conversions
If you purchase a modified handicap van or convert your unmodified van to better suit your mobility needs now, how much will that van be worth when you’re ready to sell it in a couple of years?
One of the most important aspects of buying a vehicle (regardless of whether you’re purchasing a handicap van) is the resale value. Similar to the purchase process of a regular vehicle, many people who buy handicap vans only keep them for an average of three to four years.
At Van Products, we recognize the importance of resale value on handicap conversions, which is why we only purchase and certify vans that pass through a rigorous set of inspections before, during, and after any modifications are made.
Our mobility specialists are on standby to help you make the most educated, informed decisions regarding purchasing a van that comes with the modifications you need to make mobility easier without compromising your bank account. Then, once you’re ready to sell your handicap van, we’re right here with a variety of options to help you sell your van for the right price.
