Accessible Vehicle Trade-In Value

As we look at some of the advantages that our ATC conversions have over the competition, accessible vehicle trade-in value is at the top of that list. Trucks are our best-selling conversions, and they retain their value better than most vehicles on the market. This is because many people prefer to drive trucks or need them for work. Trucks are designed for durability and longevity, which provides great value to the end user and a great opportunity for the savvy mobility dealer.

Let’s compare the Chevy Silverado (1500 2WD cab) to the Toyota Sienna. For our comparison we will use the middle optioned LT model Silverado and the XLE model Sienna. In 2016, both of these vehicles had an MSRP around $36,000. Looking at the trade in value today (Kelley Blue Book), assuming 30,000 miles and both in good condition, the Silverado is valued at $27,990 while the Sienna is valued at $22,305. That’s a difference of $5,685.

The formula used by many dealers to value the wheelchair vehicle trade-in value of a minivan conversion is to depreciate it 10% per year. The trucks and truck conversions are engineered to run longer. A factor to depreciate should be used over a 15 to 20-year period. If we use the conservative 15-year, the rate would be 6.67% per year.

The ATC Mobility truck conversion cost in 2016 was $26,900 depreciated to $21,520.

The Toyota Sienna conversion also costing $26,900 depreciated to $18,830.

The ATC accessible vehicle trade-in value is $49,510. The Toyota trade-in value is $41,135. ATC is worth $8,375 more than Sienna.
