Handicap Van Rental Features and Information

All wheelchair vans for rent through AMS Vans are inspected in order for you to receive a vehicle that is as reliable and comfortable as possible.

You'll receive a
handicap accessible van rental with side or rear entry access, depending your preference and the number of wheelchair users. Rentals also come with a standard 10" lowered floor, wheelchair tie-downs and low mileage. We also install a safety back-up for powered ramps in case of an electrical failure, but it's rarely necessary.

Pick-Up Locations

Handicap van rentals are available by reservation at our AMS Vans, Inc. location in Norcross, Georgia (only 20 minutes north of downtown Atlanta, GA), and also via our accessible rental van delivery service to nearly every state in the US. Call us at 800-880-8267 for rental rates and availability of pick-up or delivery service.

Handicap Van Rental Delivery/Pickup

  • Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport - $100 per trip
  • National US Delivery - Fill out the rental quote to your left for pricing and availability

Rent to Buy

If, after renting a handicap van, you discover you love the experience, we are happy to put 50% of your handicap van rental cost toward the purchase of your very own wheelchair van within 30 days of returning your rental, with a maximum discount of $2,500. This gives you the opportunity to try before you buy a wheelchair accessible van.

Cancellation Policy

Your wheelchair van rental can be canceled at any time with no penalty. We do request that you let us know about your plans for cancellation as soon as possible, so that we may make your wheelchair van rental available to another driver in need.

Returning Your Handicap Van Rental

Upon return of the vehicle, the gas tank must be replenished to the level at pick-up. If returned below that level, AMS Vans will charge for its refill plus a $25 service fee. There is an additional late charge of $25/hour, (not to exceed the daily rental rate) if the van is not returned by the stated time.

Cleaning Fee

If the van requires more than a routine cleaning (dusting, exterior wash, vacuuming), a $100 fee will be applied.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted in the handicap rental van. A $300 cleaning fee will be applied for non-compliance.

Service Animals

All service animals are permitted. Please let us know ahead of time if you will be traveling with one. The regular cleaning rate of $100 applies for cleaning up after service animals if necessary. Customers transporting non-service animals will be subject to a cleaning and damage fee of $150 or more, depending on the interior condition of the van.

Wheelchair Drivers

Wheelchair drivers are eligible as long as the person is able to transfer in and out of the wheelchair into the driver's seat and does not require hand controls.

Multiple Drivers

Multiple drivers are permitted when each driver is listed on the AMS Vans rental contract, has a valid driver's license, and is covered under a primary renter's insurance policy.

Great uses for a wheelchair rental van:

  • Workers compensation
  • Long-term wheelchair van rental after a vehicle accident with coverage provided by auto insurance
  • Medical transportation
  • Temporary disabilities
  • Equipment transfer
  • Accessible vacations and road trips
  • Trying a handicap van before you buy

We know you will be happy with your wheelchair van rental. If you have any further questions or need a custom package designed for you, give us a call at 800-775-VANS (8267).
