Complaince With Wheelchair Van Equipment

Compliant Wheelchair Van Equipment

Purchasing a vehicle is a hard task by itself, but if you are purchasing an adaptive one, it can be even more taxing. When you are purchasing an adaptive vehicle, one of the most important things that you need to be sure of is that you purchase a vehicle that fits your needs. You also need to make sure that you purchase a vehicle that mets the federal regulations and standards.

If you purchase a vehicle from a person that is a member of the NMEDA, you also need to make sure that the person participates in the Quality Assurance Program. This is a program that assures that that company issues are monitored along with quality and compliance. The QAP is another program that requires that its members abide by a set of standards. Membership to this particular organization is voluntary.

You may also want to check to make sure the dealer you are buying compliance wheelchair van equipment from is registered with the  NHTSA. The NHTSA is an organization that ensures that wheelchair vans and all other vehicles and equipment comply by a set of safety regulations.

Last, but certainly not least, if you are considering making a purchase from a local dealer, you need to ask them whether they adhere to a set of standards set by the FMVSS. This will assure that your vehicle will be modified according to a set of safety guidelines.
