Type II ambulances are built using a van-type chassis, with a  raised roof being the only major modification to this vehicle beyond a standard van. Type II ambulances are mostly used by hospitals and health organizations to transport patients who require basic life support features. Some of the benefits of type II ambulances include their compact shape, versatile construction, and economical purchase and maintenence costs. Type II’s can be built on a Mercedes Sprinter, Ford Transit, or Chevrolet van.

With your choice of a Ford, Mercedes, or Chevy chassis, ARV can provide you with the power and dependability that you need in a custom built modular ambulance. With the safest modular body in the industry and countless options available, we can ensure our ambulances will provide you with assurance and comfort while catering to your department’s needs.

We are a proud dealer of AEV ambulances to support your choice of chassis. AEV manufacturers type II ambulances with the highest level of safety and performance features.
