Scooter & Wheelchair Lifts for My Vehicle

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. 

Pricing For Scooter & Wheelchair Lifts

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.

Adapt Your Van, SUV, Truck or Car with a Scooter Lift

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. To learn more about what is available we recommend contacting your local authorized dealer who will be able to input your vehicle and scooter details and their experienced dealer network can inform you of all the options available in seconds. 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. 

Dealer Installed Scooter and Wheelchair Lifts

You will have many things to consider before buying the scooter lift best for you, not just the capacities of what your vehicle will allow.  The ease of loading your wheelchair or scooter in your vehicle will vary greatly and it's best for you to know what this will look like before you buy and not after.  Your local dealer can inform you of what is required of the user. Some applications will require you to remove pieces from the scooter and require more user ability and other applications will be simpler and faster. To ensure you know all your options so you can make the best decision for your needs, contact your local Bruno or Harmar dealer today.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
