A Certified Favorite

Certified and preferred, AEV’s meticulous manufacturing operations make it the favorite among Type III ambulance customers. Whether you’re looking for a 148” model or 172” ambulance, AEV is able to customize any Ford, Chevy or Sprinter ambulance to meet your needs, while matching Ford QVM, Chevy SVP and Mercedes’ preferred up-fitter standards.

Available in varying lengths and five ambulance chassis types to choose from, the AEV Type III ambulance lineup is one of the industry’s most versatile — not to mention most well-crafted. Choose from the Ford E-350, Ford E-450, Chevy GM 3500, Chevy GM 4500 or the Sprinter 3500 chassis.

 
 

Qualities

Custom Type III 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 crew’s needs, exceed safety standards and answer the community’s call, the only way you’ll find two ambulances alike is if you ask for it.

It All Starts With a Case Study

At AEV, the buying process is a one-on-one experience that starts with a feasibility study. From custom conveniences for your crew to paint schemes unique to your fleet, no detail is ignored. Even with all that effort, we still offer some of the industry’s best lead times (90 days!).

A Detailed Visual
Manufacturing Process

Starting with an exclusive Mickey-manufactured module, AEV builds each custom unit using a detailed visual process — a board stocked with parts and tools specific to that ambulance to ensure we meet your every spec. The American made becomes the American crafted at AEV.

 

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 III ambulance. You’ll be hard pressed to find so many high-end features in other ambulance vehicles.
