Although many new wheelchair accessible vans and cars are equipped with low floor technology, making wheelchair lifts seem almost obsolete, wheelchair lifts remain an essential component of a significant proportion of accessibility conversions. A well designed, constructed and installed lift for wheelchair can make all the difference to a vehicle conversion and the driving experience for mobility challenged passengers, by streamlining the process of entering the vehicle. Although DIY installations of ramps or hoists may seem to be a more economical option when choosing an accessible vehicle, there are many reasons to choose a professionally installed electric wheelchair lift.
