Who can benefit from our boot hoists?
Wheelchairs, powerchair or scooter users may very well have limited upper body strength, so may find a wheelchair and mobility scooter hoist particularly helpful, as it can reduce the physical effort required to load and unload their mobility vehicle.
How they work
Via lifting points which have been installed on a wheelchair, powerchair or scooter, the mobility device is attached to the car boot hoist crane-like lifting arm. Using the remote control, and guided by the user, the hoist arm lifts the mobility device off the ground and moves it into the rear of the vehicle. Once the mobility device is securely in place, the user can safely transport it to their destination using the car hoist for wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
Have used my boot hoist over 100 times and it is a life saver for me. Works perfectly every time, is precise in positioning and takes only a couple of minutes from parking up to zooming off on my scooter.Neil Dryden

Is specialist training required to use a boot hoist?
No, our range of boot hoists do not require specialist training as they are simple to operate following a demonstration conducted by one of our vehicle adaptation specialists at point of install.
What is the weight capacity of a boot hoist?
Within our range, we have one of the most powerful hoists on the market, capable of lifting some of the heaviest scooters and powerchairs up to 200 kg.
Can a boot hoist be installed on any type of vehicle?
Our range of boot hoists can be fitted into hundreds of different cars including manual, automatic, petrol/diesel and hybrid/electric. For specific vehicle compatibility, we always recommend contacting our team to check and confirm.
What is the maximum lifting height of a boot hoist?
The maximum lifting height will be relative to your vehicle. Contact our team for specific compatibility advice.
How long does a boot hoist typically last?
If well maintained and operated as advised, a boot hoist should last for many years.
Can the parcel shelf still be used once a boot hoist has been fitted?
In most instances, the parcel shelf has to be removed whilst using the boot hoist.
Can my boot hoist be transferred if I change my vehicle?
When the time comes to change car, we recommend contacting our team to check compatibility of your boot hoist with the new vehicle and confirm if we can facilitate a transfer.
Is it possible to load more than one item when using the boot hoist?
Depending on compatibility we can fit lifting brackets to multiple mobility devices for use with the boot hoist. However, in most instances, only one mobility device can be lifted and stowed at once.
Can I keep my rear seats up when using a boot hoist?
This is dependent on the length of your mobility device and the length of your boot. For specific advice, we always recommend contacting our team to check and confirm.
