Did you know there are more than 3.5 million wheelchair-dependent drivers riding our Highways and Bi-Ways? Nice to know that some rental car companies are supportive when it comes to providing specialized transport for this special-need group of users. Pteet.com is proud to offer assistance with the insurance issues concerning wheel chair rental vans.
Wheel Chair Rental Vans and Handicap Accessible Vehicle Hire
Bussani Mobility has been around for more than four decades. It aims to assist people who have suffered serious illness or injury by offering them the chance of mobility driving or traveling in a modified rental vehicle. They have three locations around New York City to assist users with their mobility needs (Bethpage, Mamaroneck and Smithtown).
No Need to Struggle
It takes a lot of time and effort to load a person with mobility challenges into an average family sedan. Using a wheel chair rental van makes access much quicker and safer using a hydraulic lift or fold down ramp.

The Rental Option
If you require an accessible vehicle but you are not ready to buy your own purpose-built van, you may want to consider a rental. This provides the opportunity to test-and-see before outlaying a lot of capital to purchase your own vehicle. Rental wheelchair vans can help you conveniently manage life’s daily tasks with much greater ease. Examples include:
- Visiting relatives on holidays
- Getting to a medical appointment
- Enjoying social or religious outings
- Heading out on a road trip just for the fun of it
All this freedom without the need or fuss of transfers - wheel in and off you go.
Temporary Handicap Accessible Vehicle Hire
Perhaps you are recovering from a temporary disability, or injury requiring a wheelchair. A rental van can help restore a sense of independence during challenging times when everything seems a little more difficult.
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) advocates for mobility and accessibility for drivers with disabilities. If you need help with converting or buying a handicap accessible car, truck or van, please consider a mobility equipment dealer NMEDA recommends.
