How Renting A Wheelchair Van Works

Our wheelchair accessible vehicles are available to you at our locations throughout the United States and our rental prices are at very affordable rates. Our rental vans are fully powered side entry conversions that conveniently operate at the touch of a key fob button. The vehicles include tie-down straps that secure the wheelchair in the van and seat belts to secure your loved one. Most of our vehicles can be configured to safely transport 1 or 2 wheelchairs or scooters; simply ask your Rental Specialist. We will provide you with van operation instructions and demonstrations on rental day.
