3 Factors To Consider With Adaptive Equipment

Where to Buy Adaptive Equipment for Wheelchair vans

When it comes to procuring adaptive equipment, there are three options:

You can try-out a variety of equipment with the help of a sales rep at a dealership. If you are looking for standard equipment that have been tried and tested to be safe and secure, you should only buy from NMEDA dealers.

You can also do your shopping online by visiting the dealer’s website and chatting with the company’s sales representative on the phone.
Alternatively, you can save a lot of money by personally contacting someone who may be selling their wheelchair van equipment or modified vehicle to others who may need it. Such deals can be found either online or in person. For instance, you can read online listings for such items or the classified sections among other sources.

Used Versus New Equipment

You have a choice of either purchasing adaptive driving equipment that have already been used or buying new ones.

If you wish to buy new equipment and vehicles, you should buy from dealers who specialize in adaptive technology like NMEDA dealerships. Such dealers can assess your individual driving needs and recommend the best equipment for your special needs.

On the other hand, pre-owned adaptive equipment and vehicles can be of great value. However, assessing the history and condition of the adaptive equipment will take a lot of time and money.

Another disadvantage of buying pre-owned equipment is that they do not come with warranties. When buying pre-owned equipment, you should check the equipment to see whether or not it meets you needs before you pay for it.

Before you make your purchase, you should verify that the equipment can fit comfortably into your vehicle. For instance, if you come across items marked 63C, you should do your research to find out what this means. After procuring the desired equipment, you should look for a technician who specializes in adaptive driving equipment to install it into your vehicle.

Manufacturers of Adaptive Equipment

As with most products, there are many manufacturers of adaptive equipment. Therefore, you should do a lot of research prior to making your visit to a dealer. This will help you to buy the right equipment that can fit properly into your vehicle and meets your specific needs.

The best and most accurate source of information is the internet. You should visit the official websites of different manufacturers to see what they have to offer and their costs.
