Traveling from a location to another is difficult if you are in a wheelchair. You always have to ask for the help of your family or friends or travel solely on short distances, to avoid exhaustion. Maneuvering a wheelchair is not that easy, not even if it is electric. You still have to exercise a certain strength to use it and this could get you tired pretty fast.
There is the solution of purchasing a medical scooter, but with a vehicle like this, you would only be able to go to a nearby supermarket, visit a park or take the dog out. Traveling to distant locations is difficult in a medical scooter, because this cannot run at high speeds, firstly because it is not created to run like this, and secondly because the laws forbid this.
In this case, purchasing wheelchair vans with hand controls seems like a better option. The problem with buying a van like this is represented by its price. Wheelchair vehicles can reach up to $30,000, an amount of money that few people are ready to invest to satisfy their transportation needs.
But you do not have to purchase a new wheelchair van. A pre-owned one can be just as good, if not better. Or why not try to rent a van especially created or modified for disabled people? By renting a van, you would not be required to register it, insure it for long periods, or cover high maintenance costs. Your only concern would be to make sure the tank is always full.
Wheelchair vans with hand controls can be rented anytime you need to travel to a distant location, when you get out of the hospital and want to reach your place in style, when you have to make regular visits to a doctor or on any other occasion that requires a safe means of transportation.
The cost of renting a van includes a certain insurance that any renter pays. Rented vehicles are covered against accidents, in most states being illegal to drive a car, whether it is a wheelchair van or a speed car, without liability coverage. In general, cars are rented with their fuel tank full and must be returned in the same condition, and also clean.
Wheelchair vehicles can also be rented by people who want to purchase a vehicle like this, but are not convinced yet which is the best. To be certain they make the right decision, future wheelchair vehicle drivers are invited to test drive a number of wheelchair vehicles, to make sure they select the best vehicle for their special needs.
Looking to rent wheelchair vans? These vehicles are equipped with hand controls, accessibility tools, safety restraints, and other commands that allow you to drive a vehicle like this very easily. We offer handicap vehicles for rent to all those who want to travel for leisure or business, who need to undertake medical visits or who simply want to see how it is to drive a wheelchair van.
