Original review: May 21, 2019

This may not seem like much, but we bought this 1987 Chevy Beauville Van used, just a little bit before we lost my wife's van to repo (as we had lost our jobs, house etc.) and it was either live in the van, or lose it. We loved that van, and this van came as a Blessing (hence her name). There is a 1986 Braun Lift inside. We called about doing some "repair" to it, We had "we have a series one!!!!" response from the customer service on the other end. We've been told it's crazy that it's still working. The van is in need of repair, and the lift could use a tune up as well. (Being 33 years old, it's stilling kicking, but angrily.) We thought you'd be interested in seeing that they are still out there, and running "strong/stubbornly".

Terrific purchase. Shopped in Evansville, and had questions. So I called BraunAbility's line a few times and talked to Matthew ** who was great and answered all my questions about warranties, how the rear entry ramps worked, the specifications of the ramps, etc. Flew to New Orleans to pick up; Terry was great as was the office manager Kirsty who made sure all the paperwork was in order. Mitch was also helpful. Also talked to Tim (Evansville store manager) who also was very helpful and answered my questions. And had previously been introduced to the various options by Candy. It was worth the trip and drive back. Now we are able to get my dad out of the house again, even though he's wheelchair bound. Thanks.

I had United Access, Portland ORegon install a BraunAbility Turny EVO handicap seat with simulated leather & heated seat options installed. This was installed in my new 2018 Ford 4X4 F-150 CreCab truck. I was worried that the 4X4 would be too high but acceptable for wheel chair transfers on my handicap wife. To my surprise, the seat lowers to an easy transfer height even in a 4X4 truck application.

For those needing an all weather handicap vehicle such as me in the Pacific NW, I would not hesitate to install in this application. Jemal, Rory & the United Access Team were fantastic. Very professional and obviously know what they are doing. We installed the arm rests a week later. I determined they are needed, slight run console to left rest (passenger side installation of seat). Perfect for my wife & my needs!

Although I am very pleased with my new van, and am looking forward to programming and using all the new bells and whistles on my new van. But I very much wish that instead of lowering the floor 14 inches, I wish that it had only been lowered 12 inches. To exit the underground parking where I live I must go up a short steep ramp, the underside of my van screeches terribly and many times when I very slowly and carefully go over speed bumps, I can hear the awful scraping of my exhaust and tail pipe. If my van had only been lowered only 12 inches the only inconvenience I would have experienced would be that I would have had to duck my head going into and out of my van. At the present time I am awaiting a phone call from Alliance Mobility Solutions of Richmond, B. C. to take may van in so they can put the van up in the air and view the amount of damage that has been done to the exhaust and tail pipe.

BraunAbility response

Brian, Thank you for your review. . BraunAbility has manufactured lowered floor minivans for over 25 years. Over these years of experience, we have landed on a balance between ground clearance and ramp angle to meet the needs of most of our customers. You see, if we were to raise the vehicle any higher we would subsequently create a higher ramp angle, which would create obstacles for our customers in manual wheelchairs. We could lengthen our ramp to lessen the angle, but that would create parking issues. As you can see one adjustment to our conversion design impacts others. Raising the vehicle after our conversion is installed could also affect the ride and handling.

Right before Christmas, when financials are tough, Dylan took the time to understand my issues and he rectified the situation in less than one hour. He was a saving grace that day and I hope he is properly rewarded for his actions. He did not have to help, but chose to instead. As someone who works in business development/sales, I thought Dylan did a great job by reacting quick and confidently in helping out a loyal BraunAbility consumer. I'd love to see this get moved up the totem pole for Dylan's benefit. Too often employees lose the personal touch and only focus on the needs of the business. Dylan truly "gets it." Tip your cap, Dylan!

BraunAbility response

Eric,

We are glad that Dylan was able to assist you with your concern. BraunAbility is built on putting the customer first. We will make sure Dylan see's your review.

We are very happy with the overall design and function of the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica we purchased. There are two thing Braunability and the ability center missed on. First, I have never in my life purchased a dirtier and blemished new vehicle. Our van is black with an S package and the amount of scratches on the vehicle was totally unacceptable. Secondly, the sheer amount of dust and dirt in every crack and crevice of the vehicle leads to to believe something happened and nobody can tell me what. Third, there are 404 miles on this "new" car.

We've had paint correction done at Ability Center cost but still have a full detail to clean all the dust and dirt out from the moon roof, door jambs and other places. My other feedback is regarding the hardware used to secure conversion body Pat's. I have a fully blacked out van until Braunability used basically sheetmetal screws to attached body parts. It looks terrible and sticks out like a sore thumb. I can't believe nobody could find the right sized black screws in an otherwise fully blacked out vehicle.

We have been given the opportunity to get out of the house in safety and comfort. The ramp works easily for me to operate. Everything is quality and convenience in my opinion. Very happy with our purchase. Our vehicle takes the place of a family car, and we can all ride together with the power chair in the middle.

The overall experience was a good. Shipping was slow maybe because I’m on Canada. The installer was great and the supplier worked with me. The only thing is the colour of the seat wasn’t a match for the truck. Not sure why that happen and I have a arm for the chair that wasn’t used.

We have owned two Braun vehicles. Both were minivans. Braun was very responsive to our concerns. Excellent customer service with timely response! We are very satisfied with their service and products. Would recommend them to anyone needing an adaptable vehicle. We are in the process of purchasing our third Braun vehicle.

Peter was phenomenal. We couldn't have asked for a more thorough salesman from beginning to end! He brought the van to the house for Dan to see, he came to my work to sign the papers and then delivered the van to our home. Top notch! Absolutely amazing. ❤️

BraunAbility response

Cheryl, Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that you had an excellent experience with the purchase of your BraunAbility vehicle. Our goal is to help make life a moving experience for our customers.
