Straight Talk About Wheelchair Vans from BraunAbility – Introduction

There’s no question that shopping for a wheelchair accessible vehicle can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. And if your search begins on the Internet, it’s even harder to make sure you’re getting honest information that will steer you toward the accessible vehicle that’s the BEST fit for you…not just close enough.

With that in mind BraunAbility and ADA are very excited to introduce a video series entitled “Straight Talk About Wheelchair Vans”. This nine-part series examines wheelchair vans inside, outside and underneath – all with the goal of helping consumers find a wheelchair van that performs as safely, reliably and dependably as you deserve. After all, our customers truly depend on these vehicles for mobility – you can’t just borrow your neighbor’s car to get to work or a doctor appointment the next day. The videos compare wheelchair vans (at times in pretty technical detail) and examine their differences – many of which aren’t easily seen but can make the difference between a vehicle that lasts a lifetime and one that lasts to the end of the driveway.

We know this will be a useful and educational tool, whether you’re beginning your search for a handicap van or simply want to become a more informed consumer. ADA will be posting these on our Blog as they become available, starting with the introduction you see below. We will send out Part 2, Brakes, tomorrow and Part 3, Fuel Systems, on Thursday. We will post the remaining six over the next few weeks.

Let us know what you think!
