The Transit Connect is an awesome van, it is easy to see why Nor-Cal has selected this line for their ADA Conversion kits. The transit connect is extremely versatile and can be outfitted to fit just about any personal or professional application. I spend a lot of time in this van and never tire of it, the ride is comfortable and quiet. I also get compliments from my clients, both wheelchair and non-wheelchair, about the comfortable ride and ample space. Plus, the 2nd generation of Connects are very stylish and very distinct when driving down the road. I had a young passenger that referred to my van as "like riding in a space shuttle."
Our Transit Connect Adaptive van arrived yesterday. We are stoked! This van will primarily serve our Children and Youth Services team and will be used to support children who use wheelchairs (as well as other children who experience disabilities but do not use wheelchairs) so that they can access community events and participate in day habilitation activities. Our staff is going to love driving it - it handles like a car and has great visibility.
Thank you so much Nor-Cal Vans for my brand new Ford Transit Connect Adaptive Van I LOVE IT THIS VAN IS AWESOME. This van will help to improve my quality of life SO MUCH. You guys are the best. Thank you for the wonderful things that you do for disabled people.
Nor-Cal Vans have been great! The equipment is very well designed, innovative, extremely durable, and very easy to use. I often get compliments from Wheelchair clients about how easy the loading/unloading process is for them and how safe they feel in the van. Everything in a Nor-Cal van has been meticulously designed and the great part is that the engineers at Nor-Cal continue to find ways to improve upon this already fantastic equipment. Working with the team at Nor-Cal has been a pleasure from the Sales Staff all the way through to the Van Technicians, everyone has been professional and courteous.
We LOVE the van!!! It has made life so much easier for all of us. Macy is much more comfortable not having to be moved from her wheelchair, to her car seat, back to her wheelchair, etc. Since she is 11 it was difficult to find a car seat that was comfortable. Now she can stay in her chair, which offers the support she needs for her low muscle tone, and is comfortable for long rides. It's really cute to see how much she likes riding in the back and looking out the windows!
I like that the van is different than the typical accessible vans that you see. It's nice to have something that you don't see all the time. The ramp and restraint system are really easy to use and will save my back! The one thing I would like everyone there to know is that, while we have always taken Macy pretty much everywhere with us, it became really difficult the bigger she got. Now I don't hesitate to take her to run errands, shopping, etc. because getting her in and out of the car at different spots is so easy. So having this van makes it possible to get out in the community even more than before, which she loves.
Lastly, the customer service at Nor-Cal Vans was outstanding. I visited several mobility van stores and called or emailed at least 10 others, and it seemed that no one was really interested in our business. When I called Nor-Cal Vans and spoke to Greg, I know right away that, even though we were on opposite ends of the state, I wanted to buy our van from you.
