WHEELCHAIR BUSES AND VANS EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRONIC LIFTS FOR THE DISABLED, HANDICAPPED & SENIORS
Wheelchair buses and vans are required when you are transporting people with disabilities. You need a bus with a wheelchair lift to board them safely into the passengers’ cabin. These electronic lifts are called wheelchair lifts and are referred to as handicapped accessible wheelchair buses. The lifts are powerful enough to lift one passenger at a time along with their wheelchair or scooter (in most cases) and get them inside the bus. Ambulatory passengers should not use the wheelchair lift. Handicapped passengers who have difficulty climbing the steps and getting into the bus can use the lift and get inside with the press of a button (proper training is recommended). Buses equipped with wheelchair lifts are ideal for transporting elderly and handicapped persons. Fortunately, the cost of a new wheelchair lift-equipped bus, which is about $5,000 (plus accessories) more than a bus without one, does not typically increase the cost of a used bus. Therefore, when you are planning to buy a bus, consider the wheelchair lift a low-cost benefit even if there are few seniors and disabled that your organization or group has to transport. Most wheelchair buses can accommodate up to five wheelchair positions. Additional wheelchairs can sometimes be accommodated only by removing fixed seats in the passenger’s cabin, but this is not recommended due to safety concerns, and it reduces the number of total passengers your bus can transport. Major Vehicle Exchange has many buses with flexible flip seats in the passenger’s cabin, so accommodations can be adjusted based on passenger needs. These flip seats can be easily folded and tucked by the sidewalls of the bus so that you can accommodate more wheelchairs when required. With this feature, the number of passengers and wheelchairs can easily increase or decrease depending on the passenger population. How good is that? Almost all of our buses are also equipped with automatic wheelchair restraints so that the drivers and attendants can quickly secure the wheelchairs safely in place. If you are buying a wheelchair bus for the first time, we advise that you read our Bus Buyers Guides carefully to make an informed buying decision.
Wheelchair buses are ideal vehicles for businesses and organizations that have to transport the elderly and disabled people. However, these vehicles are also practical for handicapped individuals and families with disabled members as well as used wheelchair vans for sale that can be purchased at a reasonable price. We can even get you financed from third-party financiers who offer credit and financing solutions for commercial borrowers if you do not have your own banking relationship or credit union. With respect to wheelchair vans, the wheelchair lifts are either installed at the side or at the rear end of the van. We always try to cater to our customer’s needs. Some of our pre-owned wheelchair vans for sale are equipped with flip seats so that the passenger seats and the number of wheelchairs can be adjusted easily when required.
