Conversion Van Dealer to Make Mobility More Affordable
Before opening for business in 2008, we did a study of the special needs conversion business. Frankly, we were shocked at the prices marketed to those who desperately need the technology and deserve the comfort. In order to even come close to cost expectations, people were forced to sacrifice features and to compromise on comfort. Many had no choice but to settle for pre-owned ‘converted for someone else’ vans. We discovered and subsequently laid claim to a very clear niche – high quality, full feature van conversions at prices consumers can afford.
Safety, quality, comfort, service, and technology – we compromise on nothing. Now, you don’t have to either.
