A wheelchair accessible van is the greatest form of transportation and freedom. There are many reasons why maintaining the functionality of the wheelchair ramp and all of its internal mechanics is so important, especially after the wet winter months. Our United Access service technicians recommend a seasonal preventative maintenance inspection to keep your conversion van running efficiently. During this inspection, the service team at your local United Access makes sure that everything is in operational order.
When our service team completes a spring check-up, they look at your vehicle for any signs of wear and tear. The technician goes through an all-inclusive inspection list to ensure that your conversion is in top-notch shape. The air pressure check on your tires is very important for a wheelchair van. The weight of a power wheelchair directly affects the amount of air in your car’s tire. Additionally, we suggest that the you have your tires are rotated every time your oil is changed. The ramp inspection section of a spring check-up is vital, since the ramp comes out multiple times a day. Whether the ramp is in-floor or folding, the maintenance of the motor and door is essential so that you never have problems getting in or out of the vehicle. The service department will not only look at your van’s ramp, but also vacuum the van’s interior. Finally, the most important elements of the spring inspection include cleaning the floor tracks, testing the battery, checking the bolts on the ramp, and inspecting the motor. Before returning your vehicle to you, the service technician will clean and lubricate the parts of the ramp and conversion motor. With the spring season right around the corner, this is an ideal time to book your service appointment. United Access has locations across the nation with the most experienced service technicians. Once you complete your spring inspection, you can travel worry free throughout the warmer seasons to your favorite destinations.
