How to Select the Right Vehicle Lift

Now that you own a new mobility scooter or power wheelchair there is a high probability that you want to take it with you. When it comes to selecting the perfect vehicle lift you will need to consider the platform size, automatic or manual functionality, and the type of hitch you will need. You will also need to consider your budget as well.

Let Suncoast Mobility's experts be your guide.

  1. First we need to know the brand and model of your mobility product. We require this information to determine the dimensions and weight of your device.

  2. What type of vehicle do you own? We would need to know the make, model, and year in order to determine what type of lift will fit your specific vehicle.

  3. Are you looking for an automatic or manual vehicle lift?

Here are your options for selecting a vehicle lift:

  • Manual Vehicle Lifts are the most moderately priced of the vehicle lifts . Owning one of these will require you to lift roughly 40-45 lbs. pounds in order to fold up the lift/ramp. You’ll have to secure your scooter to the carrier with straps. Our suggestion of a top-tier manual vehicle lift is the EZ Carrier EZC-3: Height Adjustable Carrier.

  • Electric Vehicle Lifts mount into your trailer hitch on the back of your vehicle. It will raise, lower, and folds up with the flip of a switch. These powered vehicle lifts are more expensive than their manual counterparts, but in turn they take very little effort to load and unload. Our suggestion of a top-tier electric vehicle lift is the EZ Carrier EZCLA: Auto Fold Up Electric Lift
