Are There Used Wheelchair Vans Under $5,000?

Are you looking for a wheelchair accessible van in your budget? Maybe you are looking for a used wheelchair van under $5,000. While wheelchair vehicles normally range from $16,000 and up, there are a variety of other mobility solutions available to help you stay within your budget. From affordable driving aids to transfer boards, there are many adaptive equipment options to fit every budget. With exclusive financing from BraunAbility Financing, along with local community and state level funding and grant options, there is a mobility solution to fit your needs and budget. 

Affordable Hand Controls for Vehicles

If you are looking for a mobility solution other than a wheelchair accessible van to fit your budget, the installation of hand controls can be an option for you. Hand controls can be installed in your vehicle to accelerate and brake with your hands instead of your feet. Hand controls can be installed in cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans for versatile use without needing to purchase an accessible vehicle. Trusted manufacturers, such as Sure Grip and Creative Controls Inc., can offer reliable driving aids to help fit your budget. 

Accessible Vehicle Transfer Seating Solutions

Are you in the market for used wheelchair vans under $5k? While wheelchair accessible vehicles commonly run $16k and up, adaptive equipment can be installed to be an alternative mobility solution or addition while you are continuing to look for an accessible vehicle in your price range. A solution to help with this is the addition of a transfer board. Transfer boards help support getting in and out of vehicles and bridge the gap between the vehicle’s exterior and the driver’s or passenger’s seat. This is the most economical product type to help fit your budget while adding a mobility solution to your vehicle. Transfer boards are easy to remove when not in use and they fold up and out of the way for convenience while driving. This solution will help you stay in your budget while adding a mobility solution to your vehicle.
