Boot space requirements will vary depending on what you need to bring with you. Everyday items like shopping and luggage can usually be accommodated in most vehicles, but if you have more specialised equipment – such as a wheelchair or mobility scooter – you may need a larger booth. The best way to find out is to go and test out different cars and see what works best for you. As people often overlook the extra amount of space needed to accommodate all items at the same time, make sure to factor this in when considering your next car.

What if I need a wheelchair hoist? 

Another thing to think about is getting a wheelchair hoist installed. A wheelchair hoist can be a great help to people with a limited range of motion. This type of hoist enables you to get your wheelchair into and out of the car without having to rely on someone else for assistance. A wheelchair hoist in a car can also be beneficial for caregivers who are frequently transporting someone in a wheelchair.

The hoist can help to make the process of loading and unloading the wheelchair much easier and faster. In addition, a wheelchair hoist in a car can also be used by people who have difficulty lifting or carrying a heavier wheelchair. By using a hoist, they can avoid putting strain on their back or shoulders. Ultimately, a wheelchair hoist in a car can be a helpful tool for anyone who has difficulty getting a wheelchair into or out of a car.

It’s important to note that wheelchair hoists need a certain sized and shaped trunk to work well, meaning not all cars are compatible. However, a wheelchair hoist can be a great way to get more independence and make life easier. They are used to load and unload wheelchairs from the trunk of a car and can be operated by either the driver or a passenger. This means you don’t have to rely on anyone else to help you with your wheelchair,  making them a real asset for people with mobility issues.
