To Charles Barry Stephens and the AMS Company
I am thoroughly pleased with my modified van. The AMS Edge rear entry conversion is fantastic. I was skeptical about making a purchase before I saw the van in person, however the van is much more than I expected. Low mileage, exceptionally clean and overall fantastic condition! The process was very easy.
Thank you to all,
Paul D. Barrett
We needed a vehicle that would transport my wife, in her power wheelchair, to the doctor, shopping, dinner and even across the country if needed. I looked and shopped and the best deals were with AMS Vans. So we took a chance on a company that was nearly 1000 miles from us and spent more money than we ever have on any single purchase.
See, that was the problem. It wasnt about the money. It was about trust. Could we trust a company that we talked to on the phone and read about on their website? We didnt go to Georgia and look. We shopped via email and telephone with AMS Vans.
AMS Vans delivered. There were a few glitches however, AMS Vans made everything right at no extra cost to me. We now have a solid, dependable vehicle that does everything we expected.
I recommend buying a handicap van from AMS Vans and make myself available to phone or email communications with anyone who needs more information.
PS The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan was about ten grand more than our house. 25,000 could buy a pretty nice house in 1977.
We are well satisfied with our 1997 Plymouth handicap van.. The truck driver who brought it was very helpful and explained the way to get my wife's wheel chair safely into the van and safely secured. Dick Wagoner
When I decided that we needed a handicapped van, I wanted it 'right now.' My wife, who has ALS and is in a wheelchair, went on the computer to find us a used van. We contacted AMS Vans, told them what we could afford, and they recommended a used van with low mileage, located in Georgia. Not to fear, they would deliver it to our door, at an appointed time at our convenience, on a carrier. They provided close-up pictures of all features. I loved dealing with them they assuaged all my fears about dealing long-distance. I would wholeheartedly recommend AMS Vans to anyone needing their services.
