Wheelchair Vans

Home » Wheelchair Vans

Wheelchair Vans are made up of Minivans and Full-Size Vans that will allow a wheelchair-bound individual to enter, ride safely and exit the van without transferring from the wheelchair. These vehicles are the ultimate Freedom Machines. They will provide a SAFE means of transportation for wheelchair users offering ease of operation for the individual and caregivers. Some Wheelchair Vans will allow the wheelchair to be safely transported in the center of the van or at the driver and/or front passenger position. Some Wheelchair Vans are designed to only allow the wheelchair passenger to ride in the center or rear of the van. All true Wheelchair Accessible Vans and Vehicles have a SAFE wheelchair and passenger restraint system to provide safe and comfortable transportation. At Helping Wheels Mobility & Conversions, our mission is to provide SAFETY, FIT & FUNCTION and AFFORDABILITY to meet your individual needs.

Wheelchair Accessible Minivans come in two basic conversion platforms:

  • SIDE ENTRY CONVERSIONS allow the wheelchair passenger to be transported in the center of the van, front passenger position and the driver position without a transfer from the wheelchair. (Utilizes a Manual or Power Ramp Conversion) * Click SIDE ENTRY CONVERSIONS to learn more *
  • REAR ENTRY CONVERSIONS – Allow the wheelchair passenger to be transported in the center of the van at mid-ship or the third row without a transfer from the wheelchair. (Utilizes a Manual or Power Ramp Conversion) * Click REAR ENTRY CONVERSIONS to learn more *
  • If your van meets the criteria, we can add a Minivan Conversion to your existing van.

Wheelchair Accessible Full-Size Vans come in three basic platforms:

  • SIDE ENTRY LIFT VANS allow the wheelchair passenger to be transported in the center of the van. In most cases, a transfer seat base is required for the wheelchair user to reach the driver or front passenger seat.
  • REAR ENTRY LIFT VANS allow the wheelchair passenger to be transported in the rear and/or center of the van.
  • REAR ENTRY RAMP VANS allow the wheelchair passenger to be transported in the rear and/or center of the van. This system uses a very strong ramp that will handle up to 1000lbs of combined weight and has a kneeling system to lessen the ramp angle. * Click PROMASTER CONVERSIONS to learn more *
  • If your van meets the criteria, we can add a Side Lift, Rear Lift or Rear Ramp Conversion to your existing van.

Depending on the type of van and the Wheelchair Accessible Conversion installed on the vehicle, it is possible for the wheelchair passenger to have the option of driving from the wheelchair by implementing other personalized equipment. This will provide the wheelchair passenger optimal freedom of mobility by having a vehicle that will allow complete independence while getting out into the world.
