How is a vehicle converted for wheelchair accessibility?

Back To FAQ

Answer: A vehicle is converted through a process of removing the interior, lowering the floor and/or raising the roof and adding a ramp or a lift. Then, the technicians replace the seats, floor, etc. back into the vehicle and finally, the exterior is repainted.
