Types of Transport Services

1. Ambulatory Transport


Ambulatory transport services are provided to patients who are able to ambulate with or without assistance and who require minimal assistance transitioning in and out of the passenger seat of a vehicle.


We utilize a comfortable van or car for this type of transport. Our ambulatory vehicle drivers meet or exceed all Department of Transportation (DOT) licensing requirements.

2. Wheelchair Transport


Patients that are confined to a wheelchair shall be seated securely in our specially equipped vehicles custom outfitted with a hydraulic lift for wheelchair transports.


All our wheelchair van operators go through extensive training and our drivers exceed all Department of Transportation (DOT) licensing requirements. Our vehicles are ADA approved and staffed only with trained professionals. Family members or caretakers may ride along at no charge.

3. Stretcher Transport


We specialize in transportation of bed-confined patients.


We understand that special care and handling is essential due to the medical conditions or fragile physical status of these patients. Our stretcher van teams are specially trained in proper patient movement techniques to provide the highest quality of care during transport.  Our rates are typically less than 1/2 the cost of a BLS ambulance.

All our drivers are EMTs and are volunteer rescue squad and firefighters - so they are kind and compassionate by nature.  For clarity, although we are not an EMS agency we prefer to hire EMTs to perform our non-emergency transports simply because we want to provide the best quality of service in Central Virginia.
