Whether you can’t afford a wheelchair accessible van, or don’t have the need to have one full time; a great option is to rent a wheelchair van. Do you own a wheelchair van and plan on flying to another state? There are many companies and dealers around the U.S. that allow you to rent a van for a day, weekend, week, etc. just like renting a regular vehicle.
Renting a van equipped for wheelchair accessibility is a great option for many people; however it’s an option that is not well known. With the holidays approaching, it reminded us that seeing loved ones or getting to gatherings might be a challenge for some people. Maybe it’s just an easy option to get to a doctor’s appointment or to take a ride in our beautiful country.
Here are some national companies that can help you out:
Wheelchair Getaways: Wheelchair Getaways was founded over 25 years ago with a goal to have van rental services available to as many people as possible.
Accessible Vans of America: Accessible Vans of America (AVA) is dedicated to providing quality rental vans with handicap accessible features. Their organization is a group of independent wheelchair van dealers who are all committed to improving the accessible transportation options for people requiring adaptive equipment for mobility.
