Full Size Vans
Full size mobility vans to keep you on the move
While minivans are the right size for many applications, there are times where a full size van is a better option for the user. This is no concern for Clock Mobility. We are experienced in conversions of vehicles of all sizes and we specialize in full size wheelchair vans that require a high level of modification that will best fit the needs of our clients. Full size mobility vans offer a number of options that are not available on minivans. We are able to create a truly unique vehicle that will meet almost any demand or customization that any client would need.

No matter what the modification or size of the vehicle, Clock Mobility has performed the job with quality before, and is eager to get you or your loved ones mobile again.
Standard Mobility Vans
Standard full size vans are used as wheelchair accessible vans when there is not a need for additional floor-to-ceiling space, but extra weight allotment is needed for the modifications that must be made to a vehicle. Each vehicle has a weight limit, and the full size vans offer more options for the after-market modifications that are necessary for those with special mobility considerations. Standard full size vans are also much more readily equipped with adaptive equipment along with chair loading and lifting devices that allow persons with wheelchairs to wholly access the mobility vans. Standard full size vans are highly compatible with driving assistance aids and driving assistance technology because there is more room in the driver's compartment for modifications.

One particular area that we pride ourselves in is our ability to modify and customize full size wheelchair vans to meet a variety of needs and applications.

What is a "lowered floor" van?
A person seated in a wheelchair usually sits taller than a person sitting in a seat of a van and usually is taller than the doorway leading into the vehicle. A structural modification commonly referred to as a lowered floor, can be done to either a full-sized van or a mini-van which increases not only the headroom in the center of the vehicle but also through the doorway. The benefits of lowered floor vans are not only added headroom, but the person seated in the wheelchair now has the ability to see out of the windows like everyone else seated in the vehicle. Most people that drive from a Click here to see more pictureswheelchair need to sit lower to allow forward vision out of the windshield. Lowered floor vans are a popular option in mobility vans since they allow the person in the wheelchair to enjoy the ride and to sit at eye level with the other passengers in the vehicle.
Raised Roof & Raised Door
Another option to full size vans that require additional head space in the cabin are raised roof vans. The advantage to raised roof vans would be the fact that there is less exterior work done involving crucial automotive components.
An additional feature that is frequently used in conjunction with a raised roof is a raised door system. This system adds extra inches to the entry way of the modified vehicles and can go a long way into easing the transition for a person in a wheelchair to get behind the wheel. The raised roof and raised door systems are commonly used for our clients who operate a motorized wheelchair or a wheelchair with more than standard height.
At Clock Mobility, we use a reinforced steel caging system to complete our raised roof mobility vans. Take a look at some before and after photographs of the raised roof and raised door systems by clicking on the button to the right.
