Hoists and Inside Lifts

Inside Lifts are mounted in the vehicle’s cargo area with a hoist mechanism that swings outside the vehicle to load and lift the mobility device into the vehicle.

Hoists and Inside lifts are ideal for Vans, SUV’s and other vehicles with ample cargo space.


The operator of an Inside Lift should have the following capabilities:

  • Walk from the front to the rear of the vehicle and back
  • Stand for up to three minutes while the lift operates
  • Attach docking device to mobility device
    – May require bending over or kneeling
    – May require adequate hand dexterity
    – May require balance and strength to attach the docking device
  • Fold down the seat back of the mobility device and/or scooter tiller until it is in its most compact position
  • Apply pressure to hold down a button on the handheld control while lift operates
  • Guide the mobility device to avoid interference while raising, rotating, and entering the vehicle through complete lift cycle
