Choosing the right vehicle lift for your car will cut down on any type of issue that might come up. People use vehicle lifts to help transport those who are elderly and disabled. So you need to be sure that you are choosing right lift.
So what are some of the different options that are available right now?
For the minivan and van models you have the following:
The curb-sider- Model VSL 6000/6900
At the touch of a button, you can store your scooter or power-chair inside the vehicle without any issue. All you need to do is connect the docking device. Just push the button on the left side of the hand-held device and the chair does the rest. This is one of the more sought after vehicle lift by customers.
The Outsider-Model ASL-250
This model does exactly what it says. It stores the scooter or power-chair on the outside of the vehicle. All you do is roll the mobility device on the platform, and you can do this from either side. Hit the button and the chair does the rest. Your scooter or chair will be secured once the platform begins to rise. You can also pick up a retractable belt for extra security, but that is strictly optional.
Just like the first one, this model stores on the inside of the minivan or full-sized van. It works the same way as the above model does. It also can come equipped with a retractable belt. If you want, you can add in an optional barrier system too.
The Big-Lifter- Model VSL 570
The big lifter works the same as the other models do. Once it gets loaded on the platform, it will be raised. Once it reaches the proper height, than it will be rotated.
These are just a select few of the vehicle lift models that are available. Speak with a vehicle lift specialist from Western Stairlifts today to see what works best for you.
