Choosing a vehicle for its dimensions:

When choosing a vehicle that will be used to transport a person in a wheelchair, the choice will be guided by the dimensions of the vehicle, in comparison with the height of the individual in their wheelchair as well as the size of the wheelchair. 

The internal height of the vehicle is the starting point once you have measured the height of the person in their wheelchair. After that look at the size of the door openings if you want to fit a lift, the height of the floor from the ground if you are going to use ramps.

See the table below for the most important measurements chart of the panel vans and mini vans that are available in SA in August 2013.
