Choosing Car Features

Include Everyone During A Limo Ride To And From An Airport

Seeing your relatives off or preparing to board a flight will require you to plan transportation to and from an airport. If one of the people who will be accompanying you is confined to a wheelchair, you may be inclined to rent a standard van that comes equipped with handicap features. If style and comfort are two of the motivators concerning your choice of airport service transport, seek a limo service that supplies vehicles that are wheelchair accessible.

The Features In A Converted Vehicle

An economy-sized van, a bus, a sports utility vehicle, or a large sedan may have been upgraded to support someone who will need to remain in their wheelchair throughout a chauffeured ride. Some vehicles may have undergone rooftop or flooring modifications, which have enlarged the space within the passenger area, providing extra headroom or legroom.

When contacting a limousine service, request a list of features that a handicap accessible vehicle includes. A built-in ramp or lift, dual access points, and wheelchair tie downs will accommodate the individual who relies upon a wheelchair and will keep them secure throughout the ride.

The Overview Of Various Vehicle Models

If the limo service that you and the others will be using is located within the region where you will be departing from, schedule an appointment to view the handicap accessible vehicles. The size of the individual's wheelchair and the manner in which you and the others will be integrating throughout the ride may make one of the models more sought after than the others.

For example, if you and your companions are going to sightsee during one part of the trip, such as after the limousine driver picks everyone up from the airport, the group may want to sit near one another and the location of the handicap accessible seating area may affect the overall vibe of the experience. If you do not want the handicapped person to feel left out, choose a vehicle that furnishes wheelchair seating right next to the bench or individual seating that everyone else will be supplied with. 

If extra assistance will be needed, prior to entering or after exiting the vehicle, request additional accommodations. The individual who will be using a wheelchair may need someone to carry their luggage from the airport and this may necessitate that the chauffeur meets you and your party indoors, instead of waiting for you in the lot that borders the airport.
