There are a number of options available to help with stowing mobility equipment in a vehicle, this may include considering a particular technique, or vehicle adaptations to remove the physical element of moving and lifting for you.

It may be that you assist someone else but are unable to lift a heavy piece of equipment or need to make the task easier due to your own health needs. This assessment will focus on best meeting your individual needs, protecting you from injury and considering financial cost.

The majority of mechanised adaptations are fitted to a vehicle and so cannot be swapped between different vehicles, with the exception of suitcase ramps. There are risks with using suitcase ramps as they are not attached to the vehicle, so it is recommended to have an assessment if you are considering this option.
