Why This Family Chose Freedom Motors USA

For parents Rachael and Kyle, getting their daughter Ruby ready to leave the house in their old Subaru Forester was anything but easy. 

Getting Ruby from her wheelchair to a car seat and back again was a challenge, not to mention that storing and unloading her adaptive stroller multiple times per trip was a time-consuming task.

“To be a parent of a kid with disabilities — and severe disabilities like Ruby that makes it so she’s not mobile at all — it’s just really physical work,” Rachael said. 

With a rear-entry Toyota Sienna from Freedom Motors USA, those struggles are a thing of the past. Rachael and Kyle said it’s a relief they can simply deploy the ramp, roll Ruby’s wheelchair in and secure it in place for a safe and secure ride. Even Ruby likes riding in the family’s new Freedom Motors van.

“The first time we took a ride in it, she was thrilled,” Rachael said. “She likes being up higher, being able to see out the front window, and that she’s closer to us and can see what we’re doing.”

Rachael and Kyle said they chose their Toyota Sienna because it was a rear-entry van that had all the features they needed, with minimal changes to other parts of the vehicle. More than that, they appreciated that Freedom Motors stands behind their conversions as a rear-entry vehicle manufacturer, not just as a dealer.

Most of all, Ruby’s parents were grateful for how easy it was to work with the Freedom Motors team. Mobility Specialist Karl Hosten worked with Kyle and Rachael every step of the way, addressing their concerns and making sure their needs were being met.

“It didn’t feel like a business transaction, it felt like you were just part of our support team,” Kyle said. “I can’t tell you how much we appreciate that.”

Beyond that, in some ways it just felt like it was meant to be.

“This is Ruby and that is a ruby red van,” Kyle said. “It sort of feels like a match made in heaven.”
