Acquiring a new wheelchair accessible vehicle for you facility can be an intimidating task.  With many different vehicle converters out there, it can be difficult to tell if you’re getting safe, reliable vehicle that’s built to government and industry standards that suits your organization’s needs while still providing outstanding value.

 

Enter Main Mobility, manufacturer of AdaptaVan wheelchair accessible vans, and provider of various other automotive mobility solutions.  In business for nearly 30 years, Main Mobility has the expertise to deliver customized solutions, whether you’re purchasing a single vehicle or outfitting an entire fleet.

 

The company has a commitment to safety, quality & reliability.  They’re registered with the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) as a vehicle modifier and final stage manufacturer, and have taken painstaking steps to be sure that the vehicle modifications and alterations they make are in compliance with any applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS).

 

And because of Main Mobility’s commitment to safety and keen eye for detail, it was selected to be a Special Vehicle Manufacturer (SVM) for General Motors in 2007.  According to GM, “…Specialty Vehicle Manufacturers provide quality upfit products that enhance GM trucks and vans. SVMs are selected on the merit of their upfit/conversion, financial stability and adherence to the governmental and trade association requirements.”

 

For a number of years, Main Mobility has focused on building its AdaptaVan conversion on Chevrolet Express & GMC Savana passenger vans because they combine a unique blend of what transportation personnel and agency managers are looking for – safety, quality and reliability.  These vans have features like side-impact head-curtain airbags and enhanced technology glass which are designed to keep vehicle occupants safer in the event of a collision, as well as crash avoidance features like StabiliTrak electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and daytime running lights.  Main Mobility also uses some “outside-the-box” methods and materials to reduce overall vehicle weight and keep a lower center of gravity, while installing the safest available components.  When you add all of this up, it’s clear to see that their AdaptaVan conversions are among the safest wheelchair and handicap-accessible vehicles on the road.

 

Main Mobility gives a unique and exclusive look to each AdaptaVan, and design, customize and distribute quality wheelchair accessible vans that meet the highest safety standards and conform to our customers' needs and expectations. Their satisfied customers include not-for-profit organizations, federal, state and local government agencies, accessible transportation providers, health and human service organizations and educational institutions.
