“It’s been so easy running errands and going to see friends since getting my vehicle lift! I can easily load my scooter onto the platform, secure it, and get going.”

“I can’t image going anywhere without my scooter. Now that I have a reliable lift, I don’t have to worry about whether there will be a scooter at the grocery store for me to use. Easy-peasy – I can just guide my scooter off the lift and shop!”

“My husband’s powerchair fits safely on our hitch lift. We love it.”

Factors to Consider before Making a Decision

While hitch-mounted lifts require little-to-no work while operating the lift, there are certain steps that must be completed in order to ensure your mobility device is secured for travel.

  • Walking from the front to the rear of the vehicle and back again
  • Standing up to three minutes while the lift operates
  • Steer or push the mobility device on/off the platform
  • Fold down the seat back of the mobility device or scooter tiller until it is in its most compact position
  • Insert the key and rotate it 90 degrees to turn on and activate the lift
  • Apply pressure to hold the up/down toggle switch while the lift operates
  • For Retractors: Connect the hook to location on mobility device and pull strap end or turn knob to increase tension (single and dual-hand retractors available)
