How to lift your mobility scooter or powerchair into the car boot
With the right equipment, travelling further afield in the car with a mobility scooter or powerchair can be easy. With either a mobility scooter or powerchair, you’ll always have many lift-assist options to choose from for total car transportation convenience.
Discover the easiest, safest, and most effective tools to easily get your scooter or powerchair in the car with little to no effort required.
Ramps can come in all shapes and sizes, from threshold ramps made of rubber or aluminium to automatic folding ramps that are great at providing a sturdy platform to push off from.
Heavy scooters or powerchairs can use a ramp assist to cross the threshold in and out of the car easily. Depending on the material, model, and type of ramp you have, this mobility equipment is a rather inexpensive option to assist in lifting that won’t require any human intervention aside from gravity, a gentle push or pull.
Worrying about the heaviness of your mobility scooter is a thing of the past with your new Aerolight-lifestyle Folding Mobility Ramp. With premium folding features that can handle the heaviest mobility equipment on the market, lifting will not only be made more convenient but easy vehicle loading will make your transportation completely stress-free.
Ideally suited for heavier scooters, hoists operate heavy lifting at the click of a button and lift your mobility equipment from the boot all by themselves. A helper may be required to assist you to your seat, but otherwise, it is a completely automatic assister for your mobility aids in the car.
Before considering this lift assist equipment, make sure your car model is appropriate to fit the hoist as some hoists take up more storage than others and it may not be safe or appropriate for your type of vehicle.
The Atlas 4 Mobility Scooter Hoist is the UK’s only free-standing hoist. This hoist can automatically help bring your mobility scooter up into the car that is entirely powered by your scooter. With a remote control available for additional control, the hoist is suitable for folding mobility scooter models such as the Smarti and Mobie Plus.
Lightweight and folding mobility scooters
Your compact and lightweight car storage solution – folding mobility scooters, which are already equipped with portable versatility from the get-go.
These mobility scooters have quick fold-up fold-down capabilities which make them the perfect scooter to store in your car and elsewhere. However, just because the scooter is designed with folding features in mind doesn’t mean it underperforms on its 4mph pavement scooter functions and can easily go long distances without hassle.
Lightweight mobility scooters make the lifting process much, much simpler.
The Monarch Air mobility scooter operates at a 4mph pavement scooter rate without the heavy disposition a typical pavement scooter has. Known as the lightest car boot mobility scooter on the market, the Monarch Air excels in riding performance and can carry five times its weight despite its lightweight selling feature; its endurance is unlike any other scooter available.
