I wanted to take this time to share our experience with the ability center and Lenny. A few things needed to be finished with our new van. I dropped the van off and was immediately given a loaner vehicle for the day I'd be without a vehicle. Everyone at the Ability Center went out of their way to make everything as easy as possible. Lenny was asked if he could drop our vehicle at my home when I wasn't feeling well, he did without hesitation. I was a bit late coming back as I was putting gas back in the loaner van and stopped to grab some groceries.Lenny helped us get our groceries inside! His muscles got a work out! I was not only so grateful for the help but Lenny went over and above to help us. This experience was nothing short of phenomenal. I'd highly recommend this location without hesitation. You'll not get better service anywhere else. To the guys in the garage to the folks on the office and Lenny you have the best as your team. They are very knowledgeable in vehicle purchases through the V.A. as well, everyone made the process so easy to navigate.Thank you Ability Center for helping us through this process and during such a difficult time in our lives.We consider you all family. You need us and we will be there. We are so very blessed and thankful for everything. Thank you from the bottom of of our hearts.

Lenny and his team are kind, exceptionally hard working and caring. They spent so much time working with us on all the details we need and then jumping through every hurdle to make sure we have what we need and a price we can afford. Honestly, it's a million small miracles and their hard work which have enabled our family to have what we need and enjoy adventures again. Ty ability center 🙂

Excellent service, excellent customer service by everyone. Highly recommend to anyone in need of assistance with a disability. I have purchased 2 vans from this establishment and would not go any place else. Ask for Lenny when you need assistance. He is the best.

Lenny,the general manager is the most understanding an compassionate person that I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. He took time out of his busy schedule to help me get my mother to dialysis. He literally saved her life. I was out of options and needed to get her there the next day. Lenny made sure to have a van ready for me in less than a day. He went above and beyond what any car dealership has ever done. He personally showed me how the van operated and worked with me on keeping the vehicle longer than expected. He genuinely cared for mom's well being. Lenny expressed why he loves what he does. Simply, helping people make their lives better.I truly believe in The Ability Center . They will always hold a place in mine and mom's heart. I recommend them to anyone who needs the quality of their life to improve, become manageable. being in a wheelchair doesn't have to be the end of driving or getting around, Lenny showed mom that, I am grateful to have met him and his team of caring professionals. Just amazing people. And quality customer service. And great products for mobility. Thank you Ability Center of Phoenix.

I have been getting wheelchair accessible vehicles for 18 years. In that time never have l been treated as well as Lenny and his staff at the Ability Center. From giving me a great price on my trade in, to finding the perfect vehicle with hand controls. They ensure you are perfectly fitted for your vehicle and that you are happy with the extras. They put your ramps in right the first time, saving trips to other places to get things repaired. 5 Stars all the way around. Thank you Ability Center.

My husband and I were just delighted with the excellent customer service and professionalism of the entire staff! The staff truly pays attention to detail! We were really pleasantly surprised by this quality which is hard to find in this day and age!! Lenny helped us tremendously in our hour of need by placing us in a wheelchair accessible van expeditiously! The process was efficient and easy! The service department is also superior! We were totally satisfied with our experience and would recommend the Ability Center to anyone who requires their services / equipment!!

Lenny and the rest of the staff are the best! We found ourselves in a situation where we needed a van pretty quickly. Lenny walked us through everything and checked on us while my husband was in and out of the hospital. I had a lot on my mind and he kept me on track. He found exactly what we needed and had great advice. He genuinely cares about the people needing this service. Everyone I met there were also very kind. I highly recommend you give them a call.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ability Center is your local resource for all things accessibility. Whether you’re looking for new wheelchair vans for sale or wondering what handicap vehicle services we offer, you can find the answers here.

Accessible minivans, also known as wheelchair vans or ramp vans, have been remanufactured to offer unparalleled ease of access for wheelchair and scooter users. The floor has been substantially lowered and the van equipped with a lightweight ramp for easy entry and exit. A kneeling system lowers the rear suspension, decreasing the slope of the ramp even further when deployed. Both front seats are removable, enabling wheelchair users to drive or ride in the passenger position.

Ability Center offers several mobility conversions to meet a variety of budgets. We will carefully assess your needs and recommend the right vehicle in your price range.

Possibly, but certain conditions must be met. Only certain makes and models can be converted. Additionally, the vehicle must have less than 30,000 miles, and is subject to inspection before the conversion process can begin.

While this can sometimes work, we recommend contacting us at Ability Center before purchasing a van. If you visit a car dealership first, you risk purchasing a vehicle that cannot be converted because it is the wrong model – or it may be the right model but not equipped with the right options. At Ability Center, we can help guide you through the process, we can even work with your preferred car dealer to ensure you purchase the right equipment. Often, you may find the perfect vehicle sitting at Ability Center already converted and ready for delivery.

No. The sturdy aluminum ramp is just one aspect of the major remanufacturing required to create a wheelchair van. Teams of skilled technicians work together to produce fully-integrated conversions with lowered floors and reconfigured seating.

Due to the lack of head clearance, a minivan lift is not an application that can be used for an adult. Adults need the extra headroom provided by a fully converted accessible vehicle to ride comfortably and safely. In certain cases, however, a minivan lift can be a good solution for pediatric chair users.

Ability Center backs the quality craftsmanship of their minivans with an exclusive Three-Year Limited Warranty – the best the industry has to offer. On top of that, the chassis is covered by the original manufacturer’s warranty.

At Ability Center, we understand the importance of maintenance and service of your accessible vehicle and its specialized equipment and we are committed to providing our customers with the availability of service. Our highly trained and certified service technicians are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service in the vehicle modification industry. All of our locations are also QAP (Quality Assurance Program) certified through the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA), meaning that Ability Center is held to the highest standards in the accessible vehicle industry.

Whether you are a long-time customer coming in for routine operational maintenance of the equipment you have in your modified vehicle, or a new customer who needs adaptive equipment installed on your vehicle, we will do our best to get you back on the road as quickly and safely as possible. It doesn’t matter if you bought it from us or elsewhere, at Ability Center we want to make sure that your vehicle is always working for you.

Buying an accessible van from Ability Center is the best way to assure you will seldom need repairs. If you do, however, we will likely have the necessary replacement parts on hand for a quick turn-around. If not, we can usually get the parts we need the next business day so you can get back on the road right away.

Ability Center maintains a stock of minivans converted and ready for immediate delivery. You will have a choice of chassis and ramp styles to try out, allowing you to determine which vehicle best meets your needs.

Ability Center also rents accessible wheelchair vans for temporary needs.

When you are ready for a new vehicle, Ability Center will appraise your old van as a trade-in. Trade-in value is usually very good, but is of course dependant on a number of factors such as vehicle condition and mileage.
