Understanding VMI History And Product Line Up

In 1987, Vantage Mobility International (VMI) was started. Its founders were inspired to create the company based on their own individual experience. A close friend of the family who was handicapped, needed a suitable vehicle, which the founders of Vantage Mobility challenged themselves to build. Their vision was a new concept that they felt in time, would obscure traditional lifts. There were three founders of the company, whose first project was named the FAMCAR. The FAMCAR was a vehicle converted from an Oldsmobile Toronado, and was successful from the moment it was first manufactured. In 1984, a suggestion from an automotive engineer, gave them the idea of applying what was called “lowered-floor technology” to the Chrysler minivan’s newly introduced front-wheel drive. As they suspected, when it was released to the market, it was also a tremendous success. Vantage Mini Van Corp., was formed in 1987, however, its name was later changed to VMI–Vantage Mobility International.

The company has a philosophy which states their belief that dedication and innovation will lead to higher quality products, as well as a higher quality of life for those who use them.

VMI provides mobility and transportation solutions for persons who have physical handicaps, and are mobility challenged. Products such as imported or domestic minivan conversions are offered, as well as platform lifts, transfer seats, wheelchair and scooter lifts, and full size van conversions.

Each vehicle that is converted is done so through the use of eleven steps. An extensive road test is completed on the finished product, as well as a 200 point inspection.

Tuscany Automotive Solutions, of Elkhart Indiana, has joined forces with VMI. Tuscany Automotive Solutions is a prestigious American company whose goal is to provide quality vehicle modifications and designs.

VMI offers high quality customer service as well as well as guaranteed customer satisfaction. Shoppers are evaluated with regard to their individual needs, in order for the company to determine the vehicle which will be most suitable for their lifestyle and budget. The sales consultant will take measurements, inquire as to the nature of the person’s disability, as well as if there are to be additional drivers of the vehicle. Customers can feel free to take their time making a final decision.

Some products one has to choose from include full size vans, VMI Ricon lift, Dodge with VMI conversion, or Honda Odyssey with conversion.

Most of the vehicles include entertainment features, as well, such as radio and DVD players, which are particularly helpful for those with children.

A great aspect of doing business with VMI mobility is their 24-hour service agreement, and qualified mobility technicians who are always available to answer questions or address concerns.
