Best Scooter Lifts | Hitch-Mounted Lift (Vans, SUVs & Trucks)

Recommended Model: Out-Sider® Scooter Lift (ASL-275)

The Out-Sider is Bruno’s most popular exterior platform lift for scooters, wheelchairs and powerchairs. Featuring a 350-lb (159 kg) lift capacity, the Out-Sider attaches to a vehicle's hitch - preserving all available interior seating and cargo space. With it's low profile, the Out-Sider does not obstruct a driver's rear view. 

With many available platform configurations and device securment options, the Out-Sider delivers optimal flexibility if the user's mobility device needs change in the future. The Out-Sider can also be transferred to another applicable vehicle for continued use.

Add the popular “Swing-Away” option to easily rotate the Out-Sider away your van, SUV or truck to access the cargo area. Additional options like platform securement belts, mobility device covers or a third brake light are also available. 

Best Scooter Lifts | Hoist-Style Scooter Lift

Recommended Model: Curb-Sider® Scooter Lift (VSL-6900)

Bruno’s Curb-Sider delivers multiple advantages for people who want a hoist-style scooter lift for inside a van, SUV or truck bed. The Curb-Sider uses vehicle-specific bases which allow for maximum seating and storage in the vehicle. Partial third-row seating or cargo space is usually available when a mobility device is not present. 

The Curb-Sider works with a wide range of scooters and powerchairs, and is available in three lifting capacities: 250 lb, 400 lb and 450 lb (114 kg, 181 kg and 203 kg). The Curb-Sider can also be reinstalled into another applicable vehicle in the future or adjusted to accommodate most new mobility devices.

Ease of operation adds to the Bruno Curb-Sider's appeal: simply stand near the curb or rear bumper, connect the docking device to a scooter and the Curb-Sider will power-lift, rotate and stow the mobility device.

Best Scooter Lifts | Interior Platform-Style Scooter Lift

Recommended Model: Joey™ Scooter Lift (VSL-4400)

The Bruno Joey effortlessly transports personal mobility devices up to 350 lbs (159 kg) inside minivans, select SUVs and some full-size vans while keeping them dry in any weather.

Simply drive a scooter or powerchair onto the platform, press a button and the Joey retracts the mobility device into the cargo area.

If the vehicle makes a sudden stop, the Joey’s “safety barrier" keeps the scooter from entering the passenger area.

Small details such as platform illumination and a backlit hand control make operating the Joey easy during any hour of the day. Second-row seating is often maintained with a Bruno Joey scooter lift.

Best Scooter Lifts | Hitch-Mounted Lift (Cars)

Recommended Model: Chariot® Scooter Lift (Model: ASL-700)

With its unique “platform on wheels” hitched-mounted design, Bruno’s patented Chariot scooter lift allows a sedan, SUV or van to transport mobility devices weighing up to 350 lbs (159 kg). 

To operate, simply drive a scooter onto the Chariot’s platform, press a button to raise the lift and place the self-tensioning retractable belts to secure the mobility device. The Chariot’s independent suspension carries the weight of the scooter, not the vehicle.

Thanks to 360° swiveling wheels, the Chariot is impossible to jack-knife and always stays precisely behind your vehicle. Standard safety features include a power-button safety latch that ensures the platform cannot lower unintentionally, as well as a full lighting package (illuminated license plate holder, brake/running lights and turn signals).

Best Scooter Lifts | Wheelchair Lift for Trucks

Recommended Model: Out-Rider® Wheelchair Lift (PUL-1100)

Engineered specifically to transport a wheelchair in a pickup truck bed, Bruno’s easy-to-operate, safe and reliable Out-Rider is the best wheelchair lift for pickup trucks.

Clip a docking device to the wheelchair, press a hand-held control button and the Out-Rider will quickly raise, rotate and lower a wheelchair into the truck bed. Its rugged reliability makes the Bruno Out-rider a favorite in any weather.

The Out-Rider is available in 100 lb, 200 lb and 350 lb versions (45kg, 90 kg and 159 kg) and available for multiple pickup box sizes. All Out-Rider wheelchair lifts meet or exceed applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and can be easily removed and transferred to another pickup truck in the future.
