Automotive Exterior Mounted Mobility Scooter Lifts & Wheelchair Lifts

External automotive wheelchair lifts and scooter lifts are the most common and least expensive options available in transporting your mobility scooter, wheelchair or power-chair. The lift mounts to your vehicle through the 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 and towing-hitch mount installed will dictate what type of external wheelchair lift can be mounted. Not all vehicles or hitch-mounts are created equal. The tongue weight restrictions of the towing-hitch and vehicle will dictate your lift options. For more details on scooter lift and wheelchair lift compatibility for your vehicle, please call our toll-free number above to speak with our dedicated lift manager.
