Purchasing Dodge/Chrysler Wheelchair Accessible Vans

Posted On: 01/30/2017

Looking for a handicap accessible minivan can be an overwhelming experience. Which wheelchair accessible manufacture has the best fit for one's needs? Which mobility dealer to work with? Which make and model of minivan? This article is to assist with the last question, which make and model of minivan.

Two of the most popular handicap accessible minivans are the Chrysler Town and Country (soon to be Pacifica) and the Dodge Grand Caravan. These vans are made by Fiat Chrysler, formally known as the Chrysler Group LLC. Dodge/Chrysler was one of the first brands of minivans to work with the mobility industry to create safe reliable vehicles for wheelchair users and their families. Here are a few reasons the Chrysler Town and Country (Pacifica) and the Dodge Grand Caravan are popular choices for a handicap accessible minivan:

  1. Price: All of these Dodge/Chrysler minivans come in a variety of price points with multiple vehicle features. With starting vehicle prices between $25,000-$28,000 getting a brand new Dodge/Chrysler minivan. Depending on the style and manufacture of the handicap accessible conversion, a completely new modified Dodge/Chrysler could be around $36,000. (Prices are subject to change.) Dodge/Chrysler also offers a mobility rebate of up to $1,000 when you equip a vehicle with handicap accessible equipment. Handicap accessible minivans apply to this rebate.

  2. Space: Across the industry the Dodge Grand Caravan, and Chrysler Town & Country offer the most interior space. This means larger turning radiuses for caregivers to maneuver a manual or power wheelchair and more space for independent users to turn and transfer. More space for loved ones, additional passengers, groceries, and luggage.

  3. Flexibility: Life is always changing. Having flexibility to make changes for seating in a handicap accessible minivan can help take away some of the stress of these changes. Flexibility goes hand-in-hand with space for the Dodge/Chrysler handicap accessible minivans. Many handicap accessible conversions allow for the front driver and passenger seats to be removed, which creates space for up to three wheelchair users.

These are just a few of the overall features that make the Dodge/Chrysler minivans a popular fit for many people seeking a handicap accessible minivan. To learn more about styles of handicap accessible vehicle modifications, find a local dealer, or to shop for a handicap accessible vehicle.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for BLVD.com, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
