Donald from VA wrote (February 11, 2016):

Ordered carrier SC500-AF, WOW, what a well built product! I've been a welder/fabricator for over 47 years using all forms of welding processes. I know quality workmanship, this has well designed construction and welding assembly. I'm not worried about this coming apart like some things you buy, Discount Ramps' shipping/response it Top Notch! Prices are equal if not better than the rest. Will I do business with them again? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!

5 Stars Low Maintenance and no sweat.....sweet!

Gary from MN wrote (January 12, 2016):

I love that it's made out of Aluminum; its never going to rust and never will need painting. My scooter fits snug and doesn't move around when driving. The carrier is easy to fold up and down and with a nice long ramp I can easily drive the scooter up. When I was first looking at carriers the long ramp initially turned me off because I thought it would get in the way but now I absolutely love it as it makes loading and unloading a cinch. If you were like me I had to lift the scooter into the backseat of my car, those days are long over. I call this carrier my no-sweat solution

5 Stars for my dad

Pat from PA wrote (June 07, 2015):

My dad, who is 96 and uses a power wheelchair, found this carrier on an internet search. He liked it because it folded up against the car and was out of the way. So we ordered it and then I got put it together. The assembly video was very helpful to use with the written directions. It went together pretty easily, particularly if you pay attention to which side goes up at several steps! We did the assembly and loaded the chair in about 3 hours, with a couple redo's when I didn't pay attention to the up side! Chair was easy to load and stable as we drove. This ramp will allow dad to go lots more places and get around much easier.

We bought this ramp to put in the back of the truck when we travel with our travel trailer so when we get where we are going we can mount it to the truck so I can be mobile wherever we go. It has given me a new sense of freedom I had not had in years.

5 Stars Aluminum Wheelchair Carrier

Alwyn Dwight Walters from NY wrote (March 28, 2015):

The carrier is balanced and light weight wise and easy to handle. The features of folding the ramp and the platform itself is quite convenient. Being aluminum is a plus as their is no worry of rust being exposed to the elements. Setting up the carrier from packing was also very easy with its instructions. I would recommend this product for anyone who needs to carry a power wheelchair or scooter.

I bought this ramp to do a # of things for me.1. carries my wagon and coolers for fishing on pier. 2. for my Mobility scooter. It can be used for just about anything that fits and doesn't exceed weight limit. Love it. Its just what I was looking for. I'm 62 and put it together and mounted it myself. I'm very good with tools. But was very easy assembly. Great buy!

5 Stars Kirk is the best, knows his stuff and very helpful and patient with me

Billy Ray from FL wrote (December 17, 2014):

The Ramp/carrier was easier to assemble than I thought it would be. I did it all by myself and took about hours. As the song goes I not as good as I once was. LOL but was able to do it with no trouble. Only problem was, wife's scooter was a little too large for the platform. Guess I did not measure right or assumed the wrong usable length. When I called and talked to Kirk, he offered a full refund, but as we talked we worked out a slight modification by adding a slight incline to lift the front bumper to fit over the rail. Now It works well. That is the only negative that I have found. It was a little heavier than I had expected but really had very little trouble getting it put together and hooked up to my SUV. GREAT COMPANY AND PEOPLE TO DO BUSINESS WITH. Thanks to Kirk and Discount Ramps.

5 Stars Excellent Carrier and Distributor

Richard from PA wrote (September 21, 2014):

I love this carrier. Strong construction and easy to use. I had no problem assembling or attaching the carrier. The multi purpose design is great to haul my 8 hp snowblower around. Discount Ramps was very courteous and knowledgeable. The carrier is still a bit heavy despite the aluminum construction. I would recommend this carrier and would buy it again. Thanks Discount Ramps.

5 Stars Excellent Carrier & Great Company

Rich from PA wrote (September 19, 2014):

I purchased this carrier to haul my 8hp snow blower. I compared it with many other carriers. This one is the best for me. It's large usable platform, 500 lbs. weight limit, long folding ramp, easy fold-up storage and more make this a great carrier. This unit is built strong and was easy to assemble. Even though it is aluminum, it still has some weight to it. Discount Ramps has polite and knowledgeable staff. Thanks Discount Ramps.

5 Stars Discount Ramps is a great company to do business with!

Jim from TX wrote (September 17, 2014):

Discount Ramps shipped this ramp to me to replace a different ramp that I bought that didn't work as advertised. This ramps went together fairly well and works better than advertised. It is still new so the ramp is stiff to operate but I am sure from examining will become easy to use with a little time. The previous reviews that were less than complimentary were probably written by people who are new to power scooters/wheelchairs. Experience solves many problems!

5 Stars I HAVE ONE AND IT WORKS FANTASTIC

HENRY from NY wrote (June 23, 2014):

I CAN LOAD MY ELECTRIC SCOOTER ALL BY MY SELF. I GOT IT BECAUSE IT WAS AMERICAN MADE AND DID NOT COST MUCH. AND IT IS VERY EASY TO WORK. I NEEDED A REECES STEP DOWN HITCH BECAUSE MY PICKUP SETS UP HIGH IN THE BACK. THE STEP DOWN HITCH WILL SOLVE ALL LOADING PROBLEMS
