What is a rear-entry wheelchair van?
A rear entry wheelchair van is a vehicle where the rear bumper and floor have been modified to allow ease of access for wheelchair users through the rear of the vehicle. This allows wheelchair users to easily enter and exit the vehicle safely, from virtually any parking spot. Wheelchair tie-downs and restraints are included with each conversion.

Doesn’t modifying the floor make the vehicle unsafe?
Quite the contrary. Each rear entry wheelchair conversion is constructed with an ultra-strong metal alloy shell on a steel frame. This configuration provides a combination of strength and light weight economical features, which results in less maintenance and longer vehicle life. These lightweight alloys put less stress on the vehicle which gives AutoAbility vehicles their famous durability and longevity
