Whether buying online or in person, our team is there to make sure you get the van that suits your needs. Our process begins by doing a needs analysis, where we figure out precisely what your family is looking for in a wheelchair van.

Or, Would I prefer side entry or rear entry?

Don’t just take it from us, take it from Jason in Ithaca, NY:

Why You Should Buy a Van from AMS Vans: Quality

We know, personally, the importance of buying a handicap vehicle that is safe, easy to use, and affordable.  We understand too the need to feel certain of your purchase, which is why we place the utmost importance on the quality of our wheelchair vans.

In our previous post in this blog series, we assured you that AMS vans are affordable, and in our next we’ll talk about our service philosophy.  But here, in this post, we are all about quality.


AMS Vans Are Outstanding Quality

You want your family to be in a wheelchair van that’s safe.  AMS Vans offers the peace of mind that comes with a quality product that’s been fully crash-tested and carries some of the highest ratings in its class for federal safety standards.  Since safety is our number one priority, our AMS Vans Quality Assurance Pledge (QAP) ensures that we have followed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations on all of our rear entry requirements.  In many cases, we have even improved upon these requirements.

You don’t need the frustration of a high maintenance van.  When you buy a used wheelchair van for sale, you should be investing in a vehicle with infrequent and easy upkeep.  That’s why we designed your minivan’s conversion to typically require only simple routine maintenance.  It’s so easy, you can do it at home. Plus, you can always call the AMS Vans toll-free, 24-hour hotline for extra tips and tricks.  That’s 888-860-2473.

Our warranty proves our faith in the quality of an AMS van.  Our AMS Conversion Warranties cover the AMS floor plan and ramp parts, separate from the vehicle; any remaining manufacturer’s warranty is left intact.  Our new AMS Ramp Conversion Warranty hits 3 years / 36,000 miles and our new AMS Floor System Warranty guarantees you 5 years / 50,000 miles.  Now that’s fully covered.

But don’t just take it from us, listen to Rob in Missoula, Montana:

I have purchased two vans from AMS and have been exceptionally happy with both vehicles. Each van has been exactly as advertised and I have never had any trouble with the vans or the conversions. Everything over the years has worked perfectly and I would definitely buy another van from AMS when the time comes. … I would recommend AMS to anyone in the market for a wheelchair van.

Still have questions?

Why You Should Buy a Van from AMS Vans: Price

Why should you buy a used wheelchair van from AMS Vans?  It’s simple. We sell only what we’d put our own family in. To help ensure your new van meets your needs, we’ve assembled a team of friendly mobility professionals to guide you through the entire process, and to be there for you beyond the sale, too.

Whether shopping for a handicap van for sale on our website or in our dealership, we know you consider three main things — that customer service, the best price, and reliable value. At AMS Vans, we’re certain we meet these considerations better than anyone else, and we wrote this series to put your mind at ease.  Take a read….

AMS Vans Are Affordable

Our customers often save $10K or more. Why’s that? Because we believe high prices shouldn’t stand in the way of your mobility freedom. We eliminate the excessive dealer margin most companies add to the conversion price. Plus, we offer late-model used minivans with new conversions. That package alone is what saves most customers up to $10K on their purchase.

Buying a van from AMSVans.com is like buying a van in person, only better. If you’re shopping with us online, we offer everything you would need when buying a used wheelchair van from a dealer: We take trade-ins, we support you as you finance, and we help you choose the right vehicle for your needs. But we also go above and beyond what’s traditionally offered. You can always refuse your van upon delivery, and we’ll even support you with a post purchase plan. After all, regular dealerships don’t specialize in handicap minivans. AMS Vans does.

We know your concerns, we alleviate them. Not only do we offer a wide selection of Dodge, Chrysler, Toyota and Honda new and used handicap vans for sale, we also carry pre-owned brands like Rollx, VMI, and Braun. New AMS mobility van conversions are added daily; choose from the side entry Legend, or our rear entry models, the Edge and long channel Edge II.

Don’t just take it from us, take it from The Newman Family in Sharpsburg, Georgia. They wrote, “Just a note to tell you what an excellent experience it was doing business with your company…The van price was reasonable and the condition of the van was amazing when you finished the restoration. We will not hesitate to do business with AMS Vans again.”
