Why the MV-1?

We are in the business of creating long lasting relationships! Why we really like this vehicle?  Our wheelchair users ride in the front passenger position, next to the driver, so we can get to know you better.

We get to know people, and become friends over time.

The MV-1 really embraces the full idea of wheelchair accessibility. Our vehicles are engineered specifically for ambulatory and people with mobility challenges. It provides transportation for wheelchair and scooter users who require the safest and most durable vehicles on the market.  This vehicle is the one vehicle designed and built for accessibility from the ground up.

Our full-size luxury SUV’s meet or exceed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) vehicle guidelines so you know you are always safe and sound.

Features include a retractable in-floor ramp, extra-wide passenger doors, a floor-to-ceiling height of almost five feet and rear heating/AC that make the MV-1 unlike any other vehicle available on the market. You will find it as easy to move around inside the van as it is to enter and exit with its maximized floor space. There is plenty of room for a caregiver or family member to come along. Our vehicles are also car seat and pet friendly. 

We also take pride in saying that the MV-1 is produced in the USA and proudly supports our Armed Forces. AM General, Mobility Venture’s parent company purpose has always been as clear as its tradition, meet the special transportation requirements of the U.S. Government.

"We recently hired Greg and his company Uplift Transport to use for the ongoing wheelchair transportation of my elderly mother.  He has provided responsive, consistent, courteous and above and beyond service for her on a weekly basis. He comes into the home, assists her in getting into her chair, out of the house and into the van and then takes her into her appointments and waits.  My mother has a variety of special medical needs and Greg has done an excellent job in accommodating those needs.  I recommend Uplift Transport for anyone requiring medical or disabled transport."
