Now offering home delivery

Hello,

Thank you for inquiring about my wheelchair vans and related services.

I am grateful and humbled that folks outside the Southern Oregon area where I am located, routinely make inquiries and purchase here. As a result, it is common that folks ask me if I'm able to deliver a van to them.

In the past, I was not equipped for delivery, other than offering limited possibilities for driving a van to them. And so a few months ago I invested in a dedicated truck and custom trailer so that I could offer delivery. After certain preparation, I now have this equipment (as you see in the photo) ready, which I acquired because so many folks (and their families/supporters) were explaining to me how their circumstances and logistics made it difficult or impossible for them to come here to get their van.

Now, if you want to buy one of my vans but your circumstances don't allow you to come get it...we can bring it right to your door. Delivery can occur within as little as a couple of days of your request.

How much will the delivery cost? If I were intending for deliveries to be a source of profit, my fee would have to be much larger than it is. However, in the spirit of this being an added service, versus a source of profit, here is a fair and simple fee schedule which allows me to recover a good portion of my expense for delivery:

  • 0-25 miles FREE delivery
  • 26-500 miles = $1.50 per mile driven + $100 base rate
  • Custom quote for distance greater than 500 miles, please ask

** Example: Wheelchair van Oasis to Portland Oregon is 274 miles. Base rate is $100. Mileage fee @ 274 miles X $1.50 per mile= $411 Total fee is $100+$411= $511 total delivery fee

Note: depending on various particulars, occasionally vans are driven to buyer, versus hauling and towing with truck and trailer. Same rate applies when a van is either hauled or driven.

Note: delivery fee is based on one-way miles (you pay for one direction, not both).

As always, please feel free to call or mail with any questions about this or any other matter.

Sincerely,
Rick Bohr

P.S. If you were to go online and search for price quotes regarding having a van shipped, you would discover many trucking companies offering such a service. However, the experience of myself and several of my customers has been that although those companies are eager to gather your information and give you a shipping "quote", there is much more to it than that: sometimes their "quotes" seem like a reasonable price, but they rarely, if ever, actually follow through with their "quote" to haul the vehicle. If trucking companies would actually haul these vans for the prices they quote, in the timeline they suggest, there would be little need for me to offer a delivery service. But they don't, and that is why I now offer home delivery as an added service.
