Category Archives: Accessible Vans

Accessible means anything that helps a person in a wheelchair with easily getting in and out of a vehicle. In most cases, that is a wheelchair ramp or wheelchair lift, depending on the type of vehicle the adaptive equipment or conversion is being installed. There are many different types of accessible vans, including fold-out automated ramps and in-floor ramps. Most accessible minivans have a lowered floor conversion to make more head room for the person to enter into the van and comfortably sit upright inside.
