    Van broke, but still need to transport powerchair

    Any ideas?

    I need to get the renaissance fest this weekend, but my ramp mini-van is broke. There's an electrical problem with the side door and they say it'll cost at least $500 and take awhile to get fixed.



    Any ideas on transporting a heavy powerchair w/o a ramp van?

        How about a rental mini van, you could transfer ino the passenger seat, and have someone drive you? Driver could put chair in the back with some pieces of wood for ramps. (Taking a seat out).

        OR, is there any transportation available? SOme of the towns around here (Not mine of course ) have wheelchair van transportation for seniors and disabled residents.

              Is this the motor for your door or your ramp. My friend Stan has MS and uses a van with automatic doors and lifts. When his motor on his lift broke I used a belt so he could pull up the lift. The door would open without the motor. I would take a friend who is AB and have some fun. We have one down here in Georgia and I enjoyed going (except the gravel, overpriced beer) but really fun and gets better every year. I help him now because Stan wrecked his NEW van so I have a tilt trailer and I get his manual chair, he drives up on the trailer and transfers to his manual. I strap his chair down and we have a big tarp in case of rain.
