Mercedes Sprinter: Engineered for Reliability
The Mercedes Sprinter is one of the most reliable, modern and versatile vans you can find on the road today. When individuals need to be safely transported long distances from one care facility to another, a long distance ambulance service is the ideal method of medical transport. There are several reasons why we chose the Mercedes Sprinter as our vehicle of choice.
Plenty of Space
When you are transporting individuals who must be kept in a bed throughout the trip, having plenty of space is a necessity. Because family members, drivers and medical staff travel with the patient, it is essential to use a spacious vehicle to accommodate everyone. The Mercedes Sprinter allows the medical transportation company to choose the seating configuration so the long distance ambulance can comfortably fit everyone who needs to travel with the patient.
A Safe Track Record
As the leading Medical transportation company, we chose the Mercedes Sprinter for our medical transport services because of its safe track record. This vehicle is engineered with safety and reliability in mind. For more than 100 years, Mercedes has put their passion for excellence behind the vehicles they manufacture. Safety is an important factor in choosing the right vehicle to serve as a long distance ambulance. Therefore, you should always select a medical transport company that uses these vehicles so you or your loved one can reach the destination safely.
Approved by the DOT
The Department of Transportation has inspected and approved the Mercedes Sprinter for use as a long distance ambulance. The DOT places a high level of importance in staying safe on the road for all vehicles, whether they are private cars, commercial trucks or anything in between. As a medical transportation company, choosing a vehicle that is approved by the DOT is imperative for those who need medical transport services.
There are larger vehicles, such as an RV, that can serve a medical transportation company as a long distance ambulance. Unfortunately, these vehicles do not have a good safety record on the road. In fact, using an RV can pose serious medical transport safety concerns. It is important for each company to find a vehicle they can trust in addition to one that offers the amount of space necessary for this type of medical transport. At ACC Medlink, we’ve found that the Mercedes Sprinter is the best possible choice. This vehicle has plenty of room and allows for many configurations, as well as offers medical transportation services a safe track record, greater reliability and approval by the DOT. These features make it the best option for families, patients and the staff that rides along with them.
