Selecting the Right Wheelchair Van Rental

There are several factors to consider in selecting the right wheelchair van rental. A Side-Entry Lowered Floor minivan will work in most cases. 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?

Other things to consider:

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

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. A MobilityWorks Rental Specialist will be happy to consult with you and suggest a wheelchair van rental to best suit your needs.
