We recently finished building this Global Medic Type I remounted module ambulance here at Global Emergency Vehicles, and now we want to show it off to the world! We sell a lot of remounted module ambulances because our customers recognize the substantial value they receive for the money they spend with us.
Remounted module ambulances are a fantastic alternative to purchasing a brand new ambulance. For those unfamiliar with the process, we basically take the patient module (box) off of an older ambulance and put it onto a brand new chassis. The module itself is usually stripped down, rebuilt with new materials, and modernized, where needed, to meet the most current standards. Mechanically, a remounted module ambulance is exactly the same as a brand new ambulance, complete with a full factory warranty on the chassis.
Our remounted module ambulance packages typically sell for about 40-60% of the cost of an equivalent brand new ambulance. Where our customers really save money is in the construction of the rear module, and the amount saved can be substantial when a brand new ambulance can cost $150,000-$200,000.
This particular Type I remounted ambulance by Global Medic was fitted with a refurbished Horton module, but we were able to sell it, even loaded with optional extras, for around half of what a brand new Horton Type I ambulance would cost. This Global Medic Type I was, of course, outfitted with our own high quality materials, but it is surely nice to know that its underlying structure is one of extremely high quality as well. Similar such patient modules are available for purchase on our remounted ambulances upon special request.
Underpinning this Global Medic Ambulance was a durable Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD chassis with four wheel drive. It had GM’s Duramax 6.6L Turbo-Diesel V8 engine under its hood with an impressive 397hp and a robust 765ft/lbs of torque, all of which was sent through the optional Allison transmission before reaching the wheels. With a such a solid drivetrain, this ambulance was definitely ready to handle anything in the line of duty.
The Global Emergency Vehicles team worked very hard building this remounted Type I Ambulance. For a few weeks, before it was delivered, it was the king in our inventory of ambulances for sale. Included in this gallery are both finished and progress photos, some of which even show before and after our work was finished.
