Purchasing a wheelchair accessible vehicle can be a complicated process. While researching and choosing an accessible vehicle might seem to be overwhelming to those who are just starting out, there are a few things to keep in mind that can help to simplify the process.
To start, there are three important questions to discuss with your dealer:
1. Do I need to meet with a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist before purchasing a vehicle?
Individuals with disabilities who wish to drive their mobility vehicle, will need to begin their car buying journey by completing a professional evaluation conducted by a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist. They recommend the appropriate adaptive driving solutions and work with your vehicle dealer to customize your adaptive vehicle conversion.
2. Are my safety needs and comfort being met?
The ultimate goal of an accessible vehicle is your overall safety on the road. Your certified mobility dealer will be able to explain how each piece of specialized equipment or vehicle modification can positively impact your everyday life, all while ensuring your safety, comfort and ultimately your independence.
3. What are my financing options?
Your wheelchair van or wheelchair SUV will be a worthwhile investment into your independence, but cost still plays a big role in the decision. There are financing options available that can help to make the purchase easier to bear for those who qualify, such as funding from the VA, Medicaid Waivers, ACCES-VR and more.
