Demers Ambulances and its Saskatoon Division (ARVI), understands that the cost of a brand-new unit might be out of the reach of those with limited budgetary means or requirements that do not require a "brand new" ambulance. To these customers, Demers Ambulances offers the Remount & Retrofit Program, a high-quality lower-priced alternative.
When a unit chassis has reached the end of its service life, the conversion module may be removed, refurbished and remounted onto a current model-year chassis. The result is a vehicle commonly referred to as a "remount" ambulance. It offers top-end performance and reliability. A "remount" unit meets the same standards and specifications as a brand new unit while costing a fraction of the price.
The capabilities and experience of Demers Ambulances for remounting ambulances dates back to the origin of the Demers Ambulances Modular Body. Our design of modular units has always been pre-designed to be remounted should the customer desire to do so. This design philosophy is enacted by training and support throughout the Demers organization:
Our service installation in Beloeil can accommodate (6) vehicles. For remounting capacity, Demers Ambulances (Beloeil) has (2) hydraulic lift. Both Demers Ambulances Beloeil and Saskatoon are capable of performing (2) remounts at the same time and take approximately 110 hours for a simple bolt off-bolt on remount to over 300 hours for a complete refurbishing.
With the total capacity, qualifications and experience of our personnel, Demers Ambulances can provide a basic remount price estimate for any vehicle within 100-120 man/hours (according to condition of original module). This estimate does not include additional time for refurbishment of the interior, paint repair or other repairs beyond those normally associated with the remount process.
