Basic Handicap Van Conversion Information

Wheelchair van conversions are performed by AMS Vans in Atlanta, Georgia and are available on new and used minivans. Customers may choose to have an existing used minivan be modified, buy a pre-converted new or used wheelchair van for sale in our online inventory of handicap vans, or purchase a new/used minivan from a local car dealership to be modified.

How Long It Takes to Modify a Minivan

Wheelchair van conversions typically take about 3-4 weeks, not including delivery. Pre-modified minivans are typically ready to be picked up immediately or can be delivered in as little as 24 hours, depending on distance and availability.

Safety Information

Our wheelchair van conversions that have been crash tested for safety, passed the more stringent current FMVSS requirements on the first attempt. We perform extra safety measures not seen on most handicap van conversions.

Wheelchair Van Conversion Warranty

All new and used minivans that are newly modified by AMS have additional warranties covering the conversion ramp and the floor system, as well as any new or remaining vehicle warranty provided by the original vehicle manufacturer.

- New AMS Wheelchair Van Ramp Conversion: 3 year/ 36,000 mile ramp warranty

- Used AMS Wheelchair Van Ramp Conversion: Any remaining on the 3 year/36,000 mile ramp warranty

Adaptive Mobility Systems agrees to replace or repair any AMS modified ramp conversion part that we find to be defective within the applicable warranty period of 3 years or 36,000 miles. If it is determined that warranty work is needed, AMS will set up an appointment with a certified mechanic or service center within your zip code or city to repair or service your wheelchair ramp or conversion.

- New AMS Floor System: 5 year/ 50,000 mile lowered floor warranty

- Used AMS Floor System: Any remaining on the 5 year/50,000 mile lowered floor warranty

Adaptive Mobility Systems warrants that the structural metal fabrication that has been performed on the newly installed floor pan unit will not fail due to rust or corrosion for a period of 5 years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first), from date of purchase.

Custom Driving Aids and Modifications

AAVans carries a broad selection of driver aids and mobility equipment that can be added to your minivan at the time of conversion. These include everything from DVD players to wheelchair lifts. Some mobility products such as hand controls or EZ Locks require the wheelchair user to be present at the time of installation. Call for a complete list of available mobility equipment and driver aids to add to your handicap accessible van conversion.

Delivery/Pickup/Drop Off Information

For a wheelchair van conversion on the minivan you currently own, you may either drop off your minivan, or we'll come pick it up and return it to you upon completion. (Normal delivery fees apply each way, see delivery information for your city.)
