Understanding the Different Kinds of Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles
Most people picture a van when they imagine a wheelchair access vehicle Somerset. But the truth is that these vehicles can be modified and crafted into a variety of forms. For example, many come in the form of trucks, buses, and in certain cases, cars. One thing that they all share in common is a “ramp” or “lift”, which is typically powered by a small motor that will either raise or lower the lift when pushed.
Mini-vans make for excellent wheelchair accessible cars Somerset, mainly because they offer an abundance of space. For instance, a larger van would provide quick entry from the rear, and would be able to house a few more passengers. Now, let’s take a look at how rear-entry wheelchair vehicles different from side-entry ones.
Rear Entry vs. Side Entry Wheelchair Vehicles – Similarities and Differences
As far as expenses are concerned, a rear-entry wheelchair access vehicle will typically be cheaper than a side entry one. Rear entry vehicles offer more ground clearance, mainly because the floor hasn’t been modified as much as a side entry vehicle has.
If you are searching for more seating flexibility, then a side entry wheelchair accessible vehicle is the better choice since the entire floor is lowered (which will allow them to either drive, ride in the 2nd row position, or ride as a front passenger).
If you are in an area that has tight parking limitations, you might want to consider a rear entry vehicle instead of a side entry one. In a busy parking lot or small garage, it can be impossible to lower the ramp on a side entry vehicle, unless you plan on parallel parking.
