Selecting the Right Wheelchair Van Rental

There are two general styles of handicap van rentals that we offer our clients.

  • Side-Entry Lowered Floor Minivan
  • Rear-Entry Lowered Floor Minivan

Hands down, the most popular of these conversions is the Side-Entry Lowered Floor Minivan. That is why these conversions make up over 95% of our rental fleet

Consider these questions to determine the best fit for your needs:

What are the Physical Measurements of the Wheelchair or Scooter User?

Knowing the dimensions of your wheelchair or scooter is critical to the selection process. Before you call us, please take a moment to measure:

HEIGHT: Measure from the floor to the top of the wheelchair user's head while sitting in their chair or scooter.

LENGTH: Measure the wheelchair or scooter from front to back, taking into account the user's feet and footrests, baskets, medical equipment, and any other protrusions.

WIDTH: Measure the wheelchair from side to side at the widest point, paying attention to arm rests or other protrusions above floor level.

WEIGHT: What is the combined weight of the wheelchair or scooter and the user?

There are various models of Side-Entry Lowered Floor minivans. The side door opening height range from 52" to 56 1/2". The interior height ranges from 57" to 61". The ramp width is normally 29.25" wide. The conversions will accommodate a chair length of 45" to 57" behind the front seats, and adding an additional 30"+ if we remove the front passenger seat. Most ramps will accommodate up to 800 lbs.

Other things to consider:

  • How many passengers will you have?
  • Will you need luggage storage?
  • Is there any additional medical equipment?

A Side-Entry Lowered Floor minivan will work in most cases. A MobilityWorks Rental Specialist will be happy to consult with you and to suggest a wheelchair van rental to best suit your needs.
