Does Medicare or insurance pay for handicap van rentals?

At this time Medicare does not cover the cost of a handicap van rental.

Can you rent vans with hand controls?

A wheelchair van cannot be rented with hand controls because hand controls are specially ordered and custom fit to your personal needs. If you would like to learn more about hand controls your local Ability Center can help you learn more.

Can I use my handicap placard in the rental car?

You can absolutely use your handicap placard in a rental car. State laws throughout the United States state that handicap permit holders are the only people that can legally use them. But a person can generally use a parking placard as either a driver or a passenger. This means placard holders can use them in another car if they are in the car at the time of use.

What does “try before I buy” mean?

Purchasing a wheelchair van is a big decision and investment. To help make sure you are completely confident in your decision, we encourage our customers to explore the vehicle in person from the convenience of your own home. Take it for a drive and experience first-hand how it fits your wheelchair, your family’s space requirements and even your garage.

How much do mobility vans cost?

The price of a wheelchair van can cost anywhere from $30,000 to $100,000. The price of an accessible vehicle can be broken down into the price of the vehicle itself plus the cost of additional modifications. The cost of a vehicle typically starts around $20,000. The cost of handicap modifications can range from $15,000 to $30,000. One way to save on a mobility van is to buy a used wheelchair van.

Can you put a wheelchair in a van?

To properly secure a wheelchair inside a vehicle you must use wheelchair tie-down straps. Sometimes these are referred to as wheelchair restraints. The basic types of wheelchair tie-downs include manual wheelchair tie downs, 4-point system, floor anchors, retractable wheelchair tie-downs, and automatic/power wheelchair tie downs.

What are wheelchair vans called?

No one seems to agree on what to call our vehicles. Are they wheelchair vans? Or are they handicap vans? A wheelchair van makes the product sound as though the vehicle is made of wheelchairs, or that it is only made for wheelchair users, which is incorrect. The word “handicap” is a term that isn’t considered appropriate by many as a description of people with disabilities. This is called disability-first speak, and more people are moving toward a person-first language approach, as in, “a person with a disability” versus “a disabled person.” Some other names for our vans include WAV (an acronym for wheelchair accessible vans) lift vans, mobility vans, and conversion vans.
