Ambulance: remount or Reman?
Two things caught our eye recently.
- “One state regulator who attended the meeting stated that 77% of the new ambulance registrations in his state last year were remounts.”
- “...the number of remounts performed annually was approximately equal to 25% of the total number of new ambulances manufactured in a given year.”
OK. Three things caught our eye...
- “An ambulance body remounter is a final stage manufacturer. When a new cab is used in assembly of a truck, the truck will be considered newly manufactured for purposes of FMVSS.”
- Coleman Sachs, chief of the Import and Certification Division of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 1
Crashing remount ambulances into a test fixture is probably excessive, would waste a lot of money and will redefine the remount industry.
We can remanufacture your ambulance and save you more money than a remount - it is better for the environment too! We’ll take care of the power train, suspension, cab interior, exterior – and the patient box. We do it all at one time and under one roof. You won’t have to crash an ambulance or two into a test fixture.
All that and you’ll get a nationwide power train warranty for 3-years and unlimited mileage.
Change is coming. The current schedule calls for a new Ground Vehicle Standard (GVS) for Ambulances from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS) in July 2019.
We are ready now.
