Mobility Product Maintenance and Wheelchair Van Service

Preserve Your Wheelchair Van's Trade-In Value with Preventative Maintenance and Repair

Regular maintenance at your mobility dealership is important (every six months!), and there's no better way to make sure your vehicle and conversion will run strong when you need them most. Another bonus: keeping up with a preventative maintenance schedule is the best way to ensure you get the greatest value from your wheelchair van when it's assessed for its trade-in value. 

Wheelchair Van and Mobility Product Maintenance

A standard maintenance appointment will address all major components of your vehicle, both the original parts and the BraunAbility product parts. For conversion vehicles, that completely includes:

  1. Checking the vehicle's battery
  2. Cleaning and sealing the battery terminals
  3. Checking the door and ramp fasteners and hardware for tightness
  4. Lubricating the hinge and pivot points
  5. Cleaning the lower door channel
  6. Lubricating the door slides and rollers
  7. Checking the tire pressure and inflating the tires
  8. Testing the door, ramp, and kneel systems to ensure they are performing optimally

By setting up regular appointments, you are ensuring the longest life possible for your BraunAbility product.

Enjoy faster service and reduced downtime, while saving time and money, with innovative real-time diagnostics.

Dealer Scheduled Maintenance

Service Interval: Have your vehicle serviced every six months or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first, by a Mobility Service Excellence (MSE) trained technician familiar with your BraunAbility vehicle’s configuration and specialized equipment.

Exposure to severe weather conditions can make service a more frequent necessity.

Turn to an MSE Certified Technician: Maintenance and lubrication procedures must be performed by authorized service personnel as specified in the BraunAbility Conversion Warranty.

What to Do Between Maintenance Appointments

Routine cleaning of your wheelchair accessible vehicle, vehicle lift, or other mobility product is the best way to prevent a problem from developing. Try to keep a regular schedule with a minimum interval of four weeks between each cleaning, and pay special attention to areas where dirt and debris may collect. Regular cleaning and inspections will help you avoid most inconveniences.

In the rare instance that you experience a part failure, make sure you understand the backup systems that operate your product. This is crucial but often overlooked. Your local mobility dealer can show you how to operate these functions until you are comfortable using them independently.

Wheelchair Van Maintenance: Protecting Your Investment 

Lack of routine wheelchair van maintenance is the most frequent cause of vehicle downtime in the wheelchair van community. Fortunately, it's also the most preventable! Wheelchair van maintenance is generally quick and relatively inexpensive and only needs to be performed twice a year. Whether you choose spring and fall, summer and winter, or schedule your wheelchair van service each time you change your clocks for daylight savings time, making your wheelchair van's maintenance a priority can help prevent costly repairs and inconvenient downtime.
