Purchasing a Handicapped Accessible Van in Indiana

If you have a person with disability (PWD) in your family, chances are you need a handicapped accessible van. However, finding and buying one can take a lot of time, patience, and perseverance, especially if you have a limited budget. To make ends meet, you have to have a definite knowledge of what you need to look for in a van, and you need to find a dealership that can sell you that van for a price you can afford.

Handicapped accessible vans are cars that are made from the ground up with the needs of PWDs in mind. These vans have special features such as ramps and wide doors that let PWDs ride their wheelchairs straight into the car. Other handicapped accessible vans also allow the PWD to drive, depending on the severity of the person’s disability. Such cars are indeed advantageous for PWDs and their families.

The first thing you need to do when you’re looking for such vans is to determine if you need one that just transports PWDs or one that lets PWDs drive by themselves. Fortunately, if you have the money, there are models that let you do both. Once you know what amenities you’re looking for, you can now choose what size your van’s going to be. This depends on the size of the wheelchair that needs to fit in the car.

Set a limit for the price of the car you’re going to buy. It is okay to get a loan, but make sure that you would be able to pay the monthly dues. Include in your budget the need for special features that you’d want the car to have—remote control activation, automatic ramp deployment, anti-skid floor covers, etc.

You should also talk to an evaluator to help you find a van that would fit your needs. Evaluators are people who are knowledgeable about handicapped accessible vans and can detect problems you might overlook like the need for neck or head supports. You can find reputable evaluators through the Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists.

Determine the make and model of the car you want to have so you can start asking dealerships if they have it. Handicapped accessible vans in Indianapolis are usually sold in most dealerships, so find trustworthy ones and pick the one that would give you the best deal. Remember, prices are negotiable so don’t be afraid to haggle with your prospective dealership.

Though handicapped accessible vans in Indiana can be quite expensive, think of purchasing one as an investment for your future and that of your loved ones. For more information, you can visit Access-Board.gov or Handicap-Vans.org.
