How To Transport Your Power Wheel Chair

Some people are hesitant when considering whether or not to purchase a power wheel chair because they believe that there is not way they can take it with them when traveling long distances. What they do not know is that there are special disabled lifts or wheel chair lifts.

These specially designed lifts are installed on the back of a person’s truck or van. They are a simple platform that can be lowered so the person can drive their power wheel chair right on to it. Once they have positioned it to where it is secure they can get off and close the gate and raise the platform up.

The raising and lowering can be done through remote controls that make it simple and easy to use for anyone. While on the lift your power wheel chair is secured and you will not have to fear that it might fall off and break.

There are dozens of different types of disabled lifts that you can purchase for your chair. Make sure that you get one that is big enough to hold your chair. However, you don’t want to get something that is slightly too big.

Many of these lifts are affordable and will come in handy when you need to go across town and do not want to drive your power wheel chair the entire way. This makes transporting your chair simple and allows you more freedom than ever before.

These types of lifts should be used on SUV’s, vans, or trucks. They need to be able to be mounted to the rear of the car and be lifted off of the ground so as not to drag it. It will be harder for a smaller car to hold something like this because it can be heavy.

Installing wheel chair lifts may be difficult for most people who have never used one before. It is best to purchase a lift from a company that will be able to install it for you and show you how to operate it.
