Posted May 29, 2014 by tomjones
If you are buying wheelchair vans for the first time, there may be many questions running in your mind. Find out the tips that can help you make the right choice.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) May 29, 2014 -- The wheelchair vans have come a long way since the time they were introduced a few years ago. The sales of these vans started off on a sober note, but the growing awareness of the benefits of these vehicles has increased its demand multifold. Today, there is excessive demand in various parts of the world for new and used vans with various features. Choosing the right wheelchair van can be a daunting task, especially for a first timer. If you find yourself in this predicament, fret not, since you are not alone. This is a first time buyers’ guide for those who visit our site for information about these vehicles and to buy them. Whether you intend to purchase a new or old van, having an idea of what to look for can narrow down your options and help you make a decision soon.

Unlike the regular cars and vans, wheelchair vans have two different types of entry points. When you visit our site, you will notice there are vehicles that provide rear entry and the ones that provide side entry. Understanding the pros and cons of both types of entrances will help you make a choice. The side entry van is recommended if the wheelchair bound person would like to drive. This particular option is slightly expensive than the other because the entire floor will have to be modified as a ramp. The rear entry van is ideal if the wheelchair bound person will travel as a passenger. This type of van can accommodate longer wheelchairs as compared to the side entry vans. However, entering and getting off this van may pose some concerns in areas with heavy traffic.

There are two main types of ramps in wheelchair vans that you see when you visit our site, namely the fold-up ramps and the in-floor ramps. The fold-up ramps, as implied by the name, are ramps that are folded and stashed beside the passenger door when not in use. The in-floor ramp is a ramp that is concealed in a small space above the floor and can slide out easily when the wheelchair bound person has to either get in or get out of the van. Though both these ramps are equally good, the fold-up ramps are inexpensive and easy to maintain as compared to the in-floor ramps. There are automatic and manual ramps to choose from too. While the vans with the former are expensive, the ones with the latter are affordable.

As a first time buyer, you can also choose between new and used wheelchair vans. Though most of them prefer the new vans, used ones that are in good condition are also worth purchasing, especially if you are facing budget limitations. However, in addition to the price, you will also have to consider the make and model of the van and its features while making your choice. Some of the older models may not have automatic door and ramp controls which are present in the latest ones that you can see when you visit our site. While the new ones are recommended for regular use, the used ones are ideal for those who used the van rarely.
