MobilityWorks Adds Their Lowest Priced Commercial Minivan Ever Offered — New Short Floor Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country Designed to Reduce Cost
Taxi companies, nursing homes, non-emergency transport companies and more have been asking for a more affordable solution for transporting wheelchair bound passengers. MobilityWorks Commercial of Akron, OH has listened and worked with their engineers as well as customers to develop a new single wheelchair, short floor minivan that will be the lowest priced Liberty brand accessible van ever. The new design has been successfully crash tested and meets all ADA and FMVSS guidelines. This will bring much needed “peace of mind” to business owners that their passengers and drivers are in one of the safest vehicles on the road. The short floor package includes a maintenance-free ramp with industry leading capacity of 1,000 lbs., the widest ramp available in a Chrysler minivan (34”), and a 3-passenger 2nd row bench seat. Also available is MobilityWorks’ exclusive Flex-Flat Ramp system which features a ramp that folds flat into the floor to create a flat deck. The Flex-Flat option is perfect for Taxi operators who want to be able to use the van on every call and have a convenient way to store luggage, golf clubs and more.
“So many businesses are doing everything they can to serve their customers while keeping costs down, and this new Short Floor minivan effectively meets their needs,” says Michael Shank, General Manager of MobilityWorks Commercial’s Liberty division. “Since this conversion can be done on minivans dating back to the 2008 model year, we are now excited to be able to offer an option that starts at under $20,000.” For more information on Chrysler and Dodge Short Floor minivans, contact Michael Shank at 616-292-6475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
