Mobility scooters, wheelchairs and powerchairs help hundreds of thousands of people to get out and about and assist with living an independent life. However, the challenge of lifting the heavy parts into and out of a vehicle means that venturing further afield is a different matter.
This is where our Smart Lifter Range of hoists come in. Our hoists will alleviate the physical strain required when lifting your mobility scooter or wheelchair into your vehicle, whilst also hosting a range of extra benefits compared to other scooter carriers on the market.
We’ve put together a helpful guide with the key benefits of stowing your mobility scooter inside your vehicle with a hoist system, so you can choose the right solution for you.
1/ Protects scooter from the elements
The biggest benefit of stowing your mobility scooter within your vehicle is that it protects your scooter from the elements. This is extremely advantageous as the better condition your scooter stays in means you will save money on servicing, repairs and even having to buy a new one!
2/ No extra hazards for parking
It goes without saying that having a lift installed at the back of your vehicle poses an extra hazard, especially with parking. Our in-vehicle hoist eliminates that hazard and allows you to park in more confined spaces.
3/ Retains quick and easy access to the cargo area
Our hoists will lift, load, and store your mobility scooter inside the back of your vehicle – all at the touch of a button. This means that there is no need to mess about with unlocking and releasing and then re-attaching and locking a swing away lift.
4/ Saves money on gas
When thinking about towing, the law of physics means that you’re going to be paying more at the gas pump. The same thing applies when a lift is attached to the back of your vehicle.
5/ No extra keys
Unlike outside lifts, there are no extra keys required to lock and unlock the scooter in place. We all know how easy it is to misplace, lose or forget your keys so not having to worry about another set is a bonus.
6/ Discreet solution
A hoist fitted within the vehicle offers a discreet solution which many people appreciate.
