Before the recent World Congress Expo on Disabilities in Jacksonville, FL, we had a champagne-colored 2006 Dodge Caravan. After the WCD, we had an electric blue 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan with 10,000 miles, remote-controlled ramp, and other necessary conversion equipment. We made the move because Barb post-polio was having back pain from lifting my wheelchair Muscular Dystrophy into the van. Atlanta-based AMS Vans' Diana Conte and her staff couldn't have been more helpful and gracious. Thank you,"guys."

I was somewhat skeptical about buying a van I had never driven or seen. My mom worried it would arrive with no wheels or something other than what it seemed. All I can say is "WOW". The van is GREAT, and it had all four wheels. I am very pleased with my van. My son is 15 and has Muscular Dystrophy and has to be in a wheelchair. He had a 1996 van with a lift. He hated it because it lifted him up in the air which drew attention from others looking on. He loves this van because he just quietly drives up the ramp and is inside safe and unseen. For that I am grateful for this beautiful van and all who helped in putting a smile on my sons face. Jill was wonderful and so were the two gentlemen who delivered it to Tennessee. I would encourage anyone needing a wheelchair van to call AMS. They are wonderful!!! Thank you Jill Rowe.
I received my 2014 Dodge van several weeks ago. The ordering and delivery process worked amazingly fast! Everything AMS promised has happened, right on time, from the comfort of home. In three weeks I have made more and easy trips to restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, car shows, etc. than in the previous 9 months. I recommend this user friendly conversion at a reasonable price to anyone with severe disability. Quite honestly "it's VANtastic!"
Thank you Jill. Dad is happy and the van is doing good and we don't know what we would have done without it. Dad could not have afforded a new van. We enjoyed working with you with your very cheerful attitude and helpfulness. We had contacted other places, but AMS was the only one who was of any real help to us. Thank you.
Testimonial | Review - Wheelchair Van Buyers Carolyn and Lynn C Are Happy with Their Handicap Van Purchase
You could never imagine the joy that Lynn and I share at the receipt of our new van. My sisters and I went to Charlotte and to H-P, NC looking at many vans, but we absolutely NEVER saw one as nice as this one. My entire family is amazed! No one believes that this is a 2008 van. It looks better than most of the 2011's we looked at. It far exceeds my expectations, and I am so thankful to you and your company!!! I take great pleasure in telling everyone who asks that AMS got it for us. The color is outstanding!! I never saw anything "sunburst" colored until we got the van. Now, that's the only color that stands out to me. (but of course, ours is the prettiest). It has so many features (that I'm still learning) that it really is unbelievable. Lynn can't decide whether to sit in the back to watch videos or in the front to look out of the front window. You're wonderful! Thanks again so much for all of your help. You made my "special" daughter feel so "SPECIAL". God bless you always!!!
