External automotive wheelchair lifts and mobility scooter lifts are the most common and least expensive options available in transporting your mobility scooter, wheelchair or power-chair with your car, truck, van or SUV. The external wheelchair lift mounts to your vehicle through a towing-hitch receiver. If you don’t have a towing-hitch receiver already installed on your vehicle, you will need to have one installed prior or we can help assist in the installation.

Note: The type of vehicle, it’s towing capacity and type of towing-hitch mount installed will dictate what type of external wheelchair lift / scooter lift can be mounted. Not all vehicles or hitch-mounts are created equal. The tongue weight restrictions of the towing-hitch and of the vehicle itself will dictate your available wheelchair lift / scooter lift options. For more details on externally mounted scooter lift and wheelchair lift compatibility for your specific vehicle, please call our lift manager at the toll-free number above for your FREE consultation and evaluation of your needs.
