Testimonial | Review - Handicap Van Buyer Peggy G Is Happy with Her Wheelchair Van Purchase in Rio Rancho, NM
We are still thrilled with our van. As you may know, our daughter has cerebral palsy and has used a wheelchair since she was very little. For a long time we were able to use a regular minivan to drive her around by lifting her in and out of the van and putting her wheelchair in the back section. She's 10 1/2 years old now and is getting really difficult to lift, and her wheelchair is bigger so doesn't fit too well in the back of a minivan anymore.
Over the summer we started thinking about getting a wheelchair accessible van for her, but had no idea where to even begin. We live in New Mexico so where there aren't very many options for these types of things. We did find a place nearby that would convert a minivan for us, but the cost was more than we could handle.
So, my husband got on the internet and found AMS Vans. We did a bunch of comparison shopping with different places on the internet and found that AMS Vans had the best selection and the best prices on wheelchair accessible vans. We found one we liked (the blue one), but unfortunately, weren't fast enough and someone else bought it before us. You didn't give up and worked with us to find another van we liked. We have 2 other kids and had determined that a rear-entry van was best for us, and you helped us find the black Grand Caravan that sits in our garage today.
I'd never bought a vehicle without test driving it before so I was a little nervous, but you were helpful and patient with us throughout the process of securing the van. Not only did you deliver the van right to our door, but you also gave us a very fair price to trade in our old van. None of the other companies we looked at were willing to accept our trade.
The van is not only beautiful, but it has saved us a ton of hassle and pain. Emily is able to ride much more comfortably, and so are we. The wheelchair rolls in and out smoothly and the tie downs are so simple to use. I never thought I'd enjoy driving a wheelchair accessible van as much as I do. My other 2 kids love it and don't feel like they are in a "weird" car because of their sister's wheelchair.
Thank you so much for all of your help with our purchase. We couldn't be happier!!!
