Arguably the most versatile type of ambulance, Type III combines the unlimited options of Type I with the economic benefits of Type II. Wide, narrow, short, or long modular bodies are built with the same safety standards as the type I’s, greatly exceeding what is required. Type III’s can be on a Mercedes Sprinter, Ford, or Chevrolet cutaway vans.


Type III ambulances are very similar to type I; but, unlike type I, type III ambulances are mounted on a cutaway van chassis rather than having a truck style body. Type III vehicles are mostly used at airports, chemical plants, oil refineries, and when the ambulance has to be equipped with the medical equipment for Advanced Life Support.
