Type II Ambulances

SPRINTER AMBULANCES + OTHER AMBULANCE VANS

 
top-sky

More Than Anyone

There’s a reason AEV builds the most Sprinter ambulances in the U.S., and it all starts with AEV’s meticulous manufacturing processes. As a trusted partner and a preferred up-fitter of Mercedes-Benz, AEV delivers the most dependable Type II ambulances, and that’s only the beginning. We’re also proud to build on the Chevy and Ford Transit ambulance chassis.

 
 

Chassis

Ideal for narrow city streets and efficient fuel consumption, AEV’s Type II ambulance lineup is well suited for commercial emergency transport. Choose from the Sprinter 2500, the Chevy GM 3500 or the Ford Transit 250/350 ambulance chassis.

 
 

Qualities

Custom Type II Ambulances

When it comes to an AEV ambulance, our standards are anything but. With countless ways to build an ambulance that will cater to your company’s needs, exceed safety standards and answer the commercial call, the only way you’ll find two ambulances alike is if you ask for it.

Remarkable Lead Times

We understand that many of our Type II fleet owners have a business to run, and that downtime equals lost time and profit. At AEV, we offer some of the fastest lead times in the Type II ambulance industry. Like you, we’re swift to answer the call.

A Detailed Visual
Manufacturing Process

AEV builds each unit using a detailed visual process — a board stocked with parts and tools specific to that ambulance to ensure we meet your every spec. Specialized teams of no more than five employees put their special touch on your vehicle, signing off on every critical function.

 

Standards

There are industry standards, and then there’s AEV. While this statement applies to the way we build emergency vehicles, it also pertains to the value we pack into every Type II ambulance. You’ll be hard pressed to find so many high-end features in other ambulance vans.
