If you are looking for a way to purchase what is essentially a brand new ambulance at a fraction of the cost, then a Remount is the option for you! We remove your module from your current chassis and mount it on a brand new chassis, saving you time and money. We have an entire list of options to choose from to make Remounting the perfect option to fit your needs and budget.
Step 1: Pre Inspection and Consultation
Before the inspection, the customer will need to remove all carry-on equipment from the module and make sure all needles and bio-waste is removed from the vehicle. Our re-mount technicians will inspect the vehicle to make sure all systems are operational and make a list of any deficiencies found. This list will be compared with the work order and discussed with the customer prior to re-mounting the ambulance. All items working normally before the remount will be expected to operate afterwards. If the re-mount is changing chassis manufacturer, or style of vehicle then the consequences of the change will be discussed. If the ambulance had been in an accident then inspection will continue into the Dismounting step to determine the extent of damage.
Step 2: Dismounting
The ambulance body shall be carefully removed from the old chassis and inspected for any corrosion, cracks or defects. All electrical systems, air conditioning and heater hoses shall be disconnected. All usable wiring harnesses under the hood and into the cab shall be removed and inspected. Fixtures such as siren speakers, grille and intersection lights, wig-wag systems, lightbars, etc shall be removed for remounting onto the new chassis. The rear step shall be removed and prepared for mounting onto the new chassis.
Step 3: Mounting on New Chassis
The new chassis shall be prepared to receive the ambulance body including new heat shields and extending exhaust system so it extends out past the edge of the body. All new hardware shall be used to mount the ambulance body, including new OEM rubber pucks and Grade 8 bolts. New seals for connecting the body to the chassis, either a neoprene rubber bellows for Type I units or a double seal process for Type III units. The rear step shall be attached to the frame in a similar manner as it was attached to the old frame. Fuel hoses shall be all new and installed to avoid sharp edges and sink traps. All heater and air conditioning hoses shall be replaced with new hoses. Air conditioning systems shall be evacuated of cooling agent in an environmentally safe manner. If the cooling agent is different from the old chassis to the new chassis then the customer will have to use the option of installing a new rear air conditioning system.
Step 4: Reinstallation of Equipment
All removed electrical harnesses shall be inspected and if suitable then re-installed into the new chassis. Any worn or defective wiring shall be replaced and run through conduit. A new console shall be installed into the cab with all the previous switches and accessories transferred from the old chassis. A complete check of the electrical system shall be done to ensure proper operation of all systems.
Any burnt out dome light bulbs shall be replaced; lenses shall be cleaned and buffed to try to remove any brown spots. All module door hardware shall be inspected, cleaned and lubricated. New stainless steel threshold plates shall be installed for all exterior compartment and entry doors. Door seals on the module entry doors shall be replaced.
All interior cabinet hardware shall be tightened and adjusted. All mounting bolts for seats and seat belts shall be check and tightened with torque wrench to appropriate ft./lbs.
The oxygen system shall be pressure checked with nitrogen gas and all vacuum lines shall be tested for leaks or kinks in the line. Any minor cracked or broken Plexiglas doors shall be replaced.
Step 5: Final Inspection
After installation of all electrical equipment, the unit is completely tested and the 115-volt system shall have a High-POT test. The unit shall be water tested, be undercoated to OEM specifications and given a road test. The unit is then cleaned inside and out in preparation for delivery.
