Certified Maintenance for Handicapped Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles


Every vehicle needs maintenance on a periodic basis, and a handicapped wheelchair accessible vehicle is no exception. Do you take your vehicle to a regular mechanic occasionally for oil changes and tune-ups and then a mobility dealer for the adaptive equipment check-up every six months?

Going to two different places when you don’t need to can be time consuming. For smooth operation of your time, handicapped van and adaptive equipment, skip the mechanic and take your vehicle to a mobility dealer – many can do both in just one trip.

Be sure an accredited mobility technician services your conversion and equipment. All of the M.C. Mobility locations guarantee your car, SUV or van will be serviced by the best. They have the training and experience needed to maintain and repair complicated, high-tech systems and controls installed in a modern handicap van. They have expertise in dozens of features that a regular mechanic is not trained to repair. A small sample of the list includes:

• Inspect and operate each mobility feature to recognize any problems and do necessary lubrication and repair

• Inspect and test transfer or jump-seat operation

• Inspect the ramp drive arm

• Clean and lube all conversion hinges

• Lubricate the entire kneel system

• Inspect wheel chair tie-downs (belts, floor track, tie down bolts, etc.)

• Check platform and platform attachment points

• Check hydraulic system and power unit
