This depends on the type and size of car being used, how large a scooter or powerchair needs to be transported, how many people will be in the vehicle during transportation and how much weight can be lifted.
As with all scooters and powerchairs there are always elements of the machine that are quite heavy, so dismantling and lifting into the back of a car is not an easy thing to do.
Using a hoist fitted into the back of a vehicle can help, but often the seat will need to be removed from the scooter.
With an estate car or some MPVs it is relatively simple, as ramps can be used to load the powerchair or scooter.
It is however essential to try out the ramps you are considering with the car and mobility vehicle first as there are many little things that can cause problems, such as a tow bars on the car, or the stabiliser wheels on the back of most scooters and power chairs.
Smaller car transportable scooters designed to be dismantled can not be loaded into a car using a ramp due to their low ground clearance
Saloon cars and hatchbacks present their own problems, not least of which is the height of the lip that anything going into the boot has to be lifted over.
It may be possible to fit a false floor allowing the use of ramps, but this does not work with all vehicles.
Another possible solution is to have a small trailer to take the scooter or power chair.
There are even some available with a trailer base that can be swiveled through 90 degrees allowing the scooter to be offloaded when space behind the trailer is restricted.
If the car is fitted with a tow bar there is also a platform with ramp that will fit directly on the back of the car supported by the tow bar.
The most important aspect with any of these solutions is that they should be tried first as little difficulties often are not noticed until then.
