Choosing the Right Mobility Scooter Lift

mobility scooter lift

EZ-ACCESS is excited to introduce new power lift options for your scooter and wheelchair. These additions to homes and vehicles can help boost your mobility, making transport easier for you and your loved ones. Deciding whether or not a power lift will benefit you is the first step. After that, questions about finding the perfect lift to accommodate your needs and lifestyle will crop up. We’ve answered three of the top questions you may face as you search for the right power lift:

  1. What type of chair can it accommodate? Your three-wheeled scooter may get away with a lightweight lift, whereas a four-wheeled, ultra heavy-duty power chair may require more support. Compare the product specifications of the lift you’re eying with information about your mobility device, considering total lifting weight capacity, tray size where it sits, and height-and-width dimensions to ensure it can fit snugly and securely.
  2. Can I still access the trunk of my car? Attached to the hitch at the back of your vehicle, lifts can securely transport any size of power chair with relative ease. The ability to easily access the rear space of your vehicle from the outside may be hindered by a lift designed to remain stationary while squarely attached to your hitch. However, some lifts come with swingaway options, which can glide aside and allow you to access your tailgate, hatch, or trunk smoothly. The HAULWAY™ Heavy Duty Scooter and Power Chair Lift features swingaway capability to accommodate your needs as well as a wide range of mobility devices.
  3. Will insurance cover my choice? It depends. Your carrier will determine whether or not a power lift and other power chair accessories qualify under your current coverage option. Before you settle on the perfect lift, consult with your insurance agent, who’ll determine the parameters of your search based on price and style of power lift covered.

Your mobility scooter may give you freedom to roam, but a power lift can help take you even further. Connect with an EZ-ACCESS expert at 800-451-1903 to gain assistance and information that’ll help you land the power lift you need.

EZ-ACCESS Acquires Worldwide Mobility & Adds Line of External Vehicle Lifts

ALGONA, WASH. – EZ-ACCESS®, one of the nation’s leaders in providing access to life beyond barriers, is introducing a new product that will expand its growing catalog of accessibility and mobility solutions.

With the acquisition of Arizona-based Worldwide Mobility, family-owned EZ-ACCESS will add a line of external power vehicle lifts to its diverse offerings. Worldwide Mobility, headquartered in Mesa, Ariz., has been a manufacturer of the American-made scooter and power wheelchair lifts for more than 25 years.

EZ-ACCESS, celebrating its 30th year in business this year, will move the manufacturing of the popular line of lifts to its Algona, Wash., headquarters. The company anticipates adding additional employees and production space to meet increased demand.

The acquisition is also expected to mark the beginning of an expansion of EZ-ACCESS product lines as part of the company’s mission to meet the needs of the entire accessibility market.

“Over the past 30 years, EZ-ACCESS has made every effort to offer our customers the highest quality and most complete line of residential, portable, threshold, and modular ramps,” said Don Everard, EZ-ACCESS CEO.

“With the introduction of the PASSPORT® Vertical Platform Lift in 2014 and now the addition of external power vehicle lifts, we remain committed to offering our customers a complete line of products for all access solutions,” Everard said. “We are grateful for the years of loyalty dealers have shown us and believe that we can continue to build on our commitment as we expand our product offerings to help create opportunity for them.”

The external power vehicle lifts are designed to make the transportation of scooters and power chairs fast and efficient. The heavy-duty lifts feature simple installation and operation. They adjust to most vehicles and models of power chairs and scooters.

EZ-ACCESS, a division of Homecare Products Inc., also offers a complete line of American-made
products, which provide all-around solutions for mobility and accessibility. Its residential products include the PATHWAY® Modular Access System, the PASSPORT® Vertical Platform Lift, SUITCASE® Portable Folding Ramps, TRANSITIONS® Threshold Ramps, Mats and Plates, and GATEWAY™ Portable Wheelchair Ramps.

EZ-ACCESS was founded in 1984 by Glenda Everard and her daughter, Deanne Sandvold. Two years later, EZ-ACCESS introduced aluminum portable ramps to its product line. In 1988, son Don Everard joined the family business, bringing with him marketing expertise. The trio was the driving force behind the expansion of the ramp market, having pioneered the industry through the marketing and manufacturing of EZ-ACCESS portable wheelchair ramps. Today, EZ-ACCESS is one of the world’s leading producers of durable, high-quality mobility, accessibility and personal care accessories.
