Wheelchair Vans

Find out in our Guide to Wheelchair Van Ramps how wheelchair van ramps and lifts can be lighter and easier to install and uninstall, while some wheelchair van ramps are a temporary fixture, which can be stowed in the vehicle. You’ll discover why wheelchair lifts usually become a permanent fixture of wheelchair lift vans, and how this can limit their use somewhat. Whichever system you choose, wheelchair ramp vans are a necessity for transferring a disabled person with a wheel chair and our guide will simplify the choice that is right for you. We cover safety of wheelchair van ramps as this is a major point to consider when choosing wheelchair van ramps or wheelchair lifts. We also cover why wheelchair ramps when positioned should not be able to slip or move and the angle of the incline should be checked to make sure it is not too steep and know why these problems will not be a concern with permanently installed wheelchair lifts. Our wheelchair ramps & lifts guide details how you should also have safety features such as stops to avoid the wheelchair moving on and off the lift during raising and an emergency lowering mechanism.
