Wheelchair lifts and scooter lifts are low-cost solutions that will transport your wheelchair or scooter on your existing vehicle. These lifts can be installed on your minivan, truck, SUV and in some cases on your car. Scooter lifts and wheelchair lifts are very affordable, and many applications are offered from industry leading brands such as Bruno and Harmar. Discover more benefits of installing your scooter or wheelchair lift on your vehicle from your local scooter lift dealer.
Scooter lifts and wheelchair lifts can be installed inside your vehicle in the 3rd row or on the vehicle’s exterior using the vehicle's hitch. Installation on the hitch will maintain the back row seating and cargo room in your vehicle. For a scooter lift installed inside you should expect to pay between $3,400 - $5,400 for platform and hoist design. Outside scooter lifts would typically range from $2,700 - $3,900. It is important to note that if you need the hitch installed on the vehicle you should expect to pay around $450-$600 additional making both inside and outside scooter lifts comparable in pricing.
Bruno and Harmar scooter lifts are the industry leading manufacturers and are likely to have the best application for your vehicle and specific mobility device.

Scooter lifts have a weight capacity of up to 450 pounds for the hoist design and up to 350 pounds on many platform designs. If you have a car and need to transport your scooter or wheelchair, we recommend looking at the Bruno ASL-700 Chariot featuring caster wheels that carry the load of the mobility device on the lift and not the tongue of your vehicle. There are no wheelchair or scooter lift applications that allow for a user to occupy the mobility device while the vehicle or lift are in use. If you need to ride in your wheelchair, we recommend looking into mobility conversion vehicles. Whatever your vehicle type there is a solution for you.
