Our Inventory Includes Wheeled Coach, Braun & Other Popular Ambulance BrandsAmbulance Types 1, 2, and 3 Vehicle Features
When looking to purchase a second-hand ambulance it’s important to note that the three distinct designs will greatly impact which is best to suit your needs. All of our used EMS vehicles are of exceptional quality, but some will work better for your organization than others due to size, build, and interior.
A Type 1 ambulance is characterized by the truck-style chassis that it’s mounted on. This makes Type 1 ambulances very reliable on difficult terrain and an ideal option for inclement weather driving conditions. The cab of the type one ambulance and the patient module is connected by a small space for passing through that resembles a window. Furthermore, the type one ambulance driver compartment bears a resemblance to that of a pickup truck, maximizing driver comfort, visibility, and ease of operation. Often medical centers can struggle with being able to afford a new Type 1, so we’re always sure to have plenty of these used emergency vehicles for sale.
The Type 2 ambulance, on the other hand, is closer to a van. It’s faster in comparison to a Type 1 and Type 3, and generally more affordable as well. Due to a Type II ambulance’s slim structure, they’re perfect for narrow city streets and dense urban environments. This means that these used EMS vehicles enhance emergency site access which the bulkier Type 1 or Type 3 may struggle to reach in a timely fashion. Whether a new or a second-hand ambulance, Type 2 ambulances are known for their speed, ride comfort, and compact convenience. Overall, Type II ambulances boast better fuel economy, are more maneuverable, and these refurbished ambulances are well-suited for non-emergency transports.
Type 3 ambulances are similar in appearance to Type 1 but they can be distinguished by their mount, which is a cutaway van chassis. Though it can vary by vehicle, Type 3 ambulances often feature a cab and patient module that’s separated by a doorway, unlike Type 1’s window-like connection.
This space is an important part of the vehicle’s interior, as it is used to transport items from the driver compartment to the patient compartment and vice-versa. Its large cab makes it ideal for storing medical equipment. They’re outfitted with a large engine, and these second hand ambulances are incredibly durable.
This space is an important part of the vehicle’s interior, as it is used to transport items from the driver compartment to the patient compartment and vice-versa. A Type 3’s large cab is also ideal for storing additional medical equipment, while simultaneously promoting ease of medical provider service. They’re outfitted with a large engine, and these second-hand ambulances are incredibly durable.
Ambulances have other categories similar to the three types, such as the 4×4 ambulance. These are often used by facilities and organizations in remote areas, and often a used 4×4 ambulance for sale will be a Type 1. However, if you want a used 4×4 ambulance for sale but aren’t interested in Type 1, there are conversion kits that can be used on Type 1 or Type 3.
An alternative to a used 4×4 for sale is a used Sprinter ambulance. Available as a Type 2 or Type 3, the Mercedes Sprinter is a chassis type that’s often used for conversions on emergency vehicles in Europe as well. Type 2 used Sprinter ambulances will have less open space while a Type 3 used Sprinter ambulance will have plenty of space. Either way, when buying old ambulances with a Sprinter chassis you’re buying the many safety features associated with their name.
