Every wheelchair-user understands the importance of mobility. Having freedom when it comes to the roads is equally as important. Fortunately, there is a wide selection of wheelchair accessible vehicle conversion companies to choose from. Purchasing a wheelchair accessible vehicle is no small expense. Options are a great thing.

If you live in an area where there are many companies to choose from, or you want to know what makes an above-the-bar-wheelchair accessible vehicle conversion company, there are a handful of qualities you must look for. First, choose a wheelchair accessible vehicle conversion company that has an established track record. Preferably a company that has been in business for at least a decade or more.

You’ll also want to choose a wheelchair accessible conversion company that will do a wide variety of conversions, from different areas of the vehicle you may want the ramp (rear or side) to installing either a power or manual ramp system. You want plenty of options at your disposal. This however isn’t always the case if you’re seeking a truck conversion.

In this situation, you'll want to go with a company that specializes in truck conversions, or at least makes them a priority (see our top list). Additionally, look for a conversion company that offers payment plans works with a variety of vehicle manufacturers. Free delivery should also be included in the price if you are out of state. And lastly, chose a US-based company. There are some exciting vehicles being made overseas, but they must be approved for road use.

Our experts have considered all of this and more when looking at the options for our community and have come up with the list below to help you narrow down the field.

VMI is another solid choice for consumers looking for an accessible vehicle. They mostly do side and rear-entry minivans and have recently developed VMI’s ParkSmart Parking Sensor, which solves a major problem many wheelchair users have. ParkSmart is the first-ever and only parking sensor designed to help avoid getting blocked in while you’re away from your vehicle. If an obstruction is detected, the system will sound the alarm and play a message that will repeat three times. The message alerts the individual that they are obstructing the accessible vehicle and asks them to clear the obstruction. This type of forward thinking innovation, along with streamlined design, is a reason VMI made our Best of List!
