I purchased this carrier because it was getting to hard for me to breakdown my Hoveround and load it into my vehicle. I placed my order on a Saturday and by Wednesday it arrived. It only took about 10 minutes of final assembly to have it ready to mount on car. Another 5 minutes and I was ready to load up and get on the road. I was surprised and pleased with the workmanship of the carrier and the ease of operation. It is a very sturdy unit but is very lightweight. Very pleased with every aspect from ordering, final assembly and use of this carrier.
I bought this ramp because we were tired of picking it up to load in back of car. This ramp is 100% wonderful. Does not shack or rattle at all. Used it already and I was able to use it alone even though I have a foot nerve problem and it was a breeze. Thanks for a quility product.
Product is everything that we were looking for, fit the patients car perfectly with no trouble. Would order again
This model is everything it says it is. It arrived in great shape, instructions were easy and assembly was effortless. I was so thrilled to have it until.....I tried to load my Jazzy E-14 power chair. The wheels would not roll over the end of the ramp because the transitions too high. I was able to compensate by placing a piece of plywood down, but then the ramp is too narrow, with maybe an inch on each side, if the chair goes right or left even by just a little bit the chair would fall off the ramp.The only way to do it safe is to disengage the wheels turn off the power and push it up the ramp which iscrazy hard because its just so steep.But is an very good quality ramp. A person at my local Walmart wrecked it though wh3n he ran into it with a "Train" of sopping carts being pulled by one of those machines. Now its bent and unusable and I'm waiting to see if there insurance is gonna pay for it. So far they are not returning my calls. If they compensate me, I'll spend the extra $50.00 and get the next size up carrier, it's ramp is almost 18 inches longer and would be much easier to manage. The width is the same though. I'm just gonna half to be real careful! If the ramp was longer I would give this model 5 stars.
I have had my carrier on my car since October. 2015. I have only put my scooter on once when the carrier was installed. I went to load the scooter and the wires that you need to pull on the pins to release the ramp are so thin that they broke apart when I tried to release the ramp. This a very poor design and very disappointing. Hopefully I will find some other solution to the problem. Also because the carrier is also out in the elements the pins have rusted badly and are hard to work with.
It is well worth your time to watch the install video. The carrier is well constructed and easy to install.
Carrier came to me quick & easy to install. I am able to load my chair myself. The only issue I had is while driving down the road the pin came out & ramp came down. My chair stayed in place. I now add a strap to make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm happy with it.
I work for a medical supply store and we had a customer looking for a ramp small enough, yet strong enough to load her mobility chair on the back of her Toyota Camry sedan. With zero issues and lack of mobility she is full capable of loading her own her own mobility chair and not have to worry about clearance issues in her Toyota. Great product and I will refer more carriers to my patients/customers as needed. Thanks.
The ramp is stronger then I expected. I was pleasantly surprised. I was also surprised that the product arrived in good condition and not dented up. I particularily like the ability to fold the unit up behind my tailgate when not carrying anything.
I bought an SC400 to replace another carrier that was damaged in an accident. I have several physical limitations and the SC400 is very easy to operate. The ramp is easily accessible and I have no problems getting it to work. I'm very pleased with my new SC400 mobility carrier.
It took me about 20 minutes to put this together. Installed it on her car, loaded up her new snow blower...and off she went! thank you!
I have a Honda Fit and it works well. Had to by an adapter to go into my 1/1/4 hitch. should give the option when ordering. now I have the 2 inch that I can't use.
Scratch and dent my foot! It was just like NEW! I got my mom an electric wheelchair that's 50 lbs and folds up. I thought I would still be able to lift it into the car, I was mistaken. So I started looking for workable solutions.This ramp is the perfect solution. The only drawback is that the hitch assembly is a little low and scrapes the street when there's a steep driveway (scared me the first time it happened, but I've adjusted my driving, so it's much better now.) The instructions were a little confusing and a couple of the parts didn't match the pictures on the instruction, but the part that came was such better than the one pictured.
Purchased the steel folding ramp online....It was delivered quickly and the shipping was free. That was amazing. The reason I say the free shipping was amazing was it weighed 82 pounds. I was going to order a hoveround cup holder from hoveround. They wanted to me 9.95 for shipping a 3 oz plastic cup. so having an 82 pound product delivered for free is 10 stars... .The video and written instructions were perfect. Had ZERO problems putting it together.
As I stated in the title, this product has allowed my fiance, who is very limited in mobility, to bring her electric wheelchair with her when we go anywhere. she is able to just lower her chair from the back of the car and ride on. We are so very grateful.
I bought this carrier because of the price, I'm entirely impressed by the ease of use. I put it together with little help and so quickly we were able to use it that day! I live in a complex full of very high speed bumps, even at the slowest speed you tend to feel them, yet the carrier has no issues with them. I am able to load my mobility cart myself and secure it quickly. Will definitely deal with this seller again AND recommend them to anyone I know looking to purchase these products!
I bought this so I could transport my Father in Law's motorized wheelchair when I need to take him places. I no longer have to worry about him falling while using his walker and we can get around so much quicker with his wheelchair. Thanks for a great and affordable product!
It was so very easy to put together and add to my Nissan Versa I was unsure if my small car could hold a power chair but its supports wonderful. so happy to be able to take it with me without having to buy a new vehicle
we bought this ramp along with the swing arm (SC-SWING-AW-AY-V2) for member in our church who recently lost the use of her legs. The ramp was easy to install and is easy to use. It installed quickly and works great.
The carrier is sturdy and strong. Able to hold my Hoveround with no difficulty whatsoever. The only thing I wish that was different was the Hitch. We had to mount the extra mount on the 350 Ford because without it the carrier was to high off the ground with the ramp. We mounted the extra Multi level hitch and it placed the carrier exactly where we needed to be except we cant put it in up position. The carrier has no split and sticks out and we are not able to put it in the up position. Other than that We love the fact that now I can go places that I wasn't able to go before. Car shows, outings, long excursions with the family such as amusement parks and etc..... Great product all around. I recommend for anyone who needs a mobility system.
Product order handled efficiently through a Product Specialist. Damaged in delivery. Judy (JLD) filed a claim with UPS and shipped another carrier which was received in a timely manner. I would recommend this Product and Discount Ramps to my family, friends and neighbors.
I ordered a cargo carrier with a ramp. I was surprised when it arrived in just a few days. I was even more surprised, when I started to assemble it, that one of the holes for a pin had not been drilled. I was even more surprised when I called customer service and they said they would ship just that particular part as a replacement, and did not ask for the first one to be shipped back. They said just keep it in case you need it for extra parts sometime. This is a product they sell but do not make themselves, so they had nothing to do with the mistake. There was no hesitation, just tell us what you need and we will send it.
I am getting better at navigating the electric chair on it.
Like it 'cause it's light weight, it' just the right size for my gogo scooter and coupled with my receiver it just clears my bumper nicely.Sticking out not so far,thathat means there's less chance for those parking lot jockies backing into it at Walmarts
This hitch mounted mobility carrier with ramp was an answer to prayer after my father was a double amputee with no legs now. My mom had been in tears wondering how she was going to get him from place to place each day. She could not lift him and found help not available always. He goes to dialysis three times a week and other appnts. He has congestive heart failure which runs in the family and diabetes as well. We, the family gathered together to collect money for my dad for ramps to assist him in getting out of the house, this was wonderful. He was blessed with a hove-around chair that brought about joy because without these two, he would have a very almost impossible time just living from day to day. The hitch was professionally installed, beautifully done. Easy to operate and mount and very attractive. You never really pay attention to these lifts or equipment nor appreciate them until someone you love need them. I am now being intentional about being more alert and compassionate about people in need more than just myself. Thank you for manufacturing this product, it seems that it will last a very long time. Thank you for allowing God to imprint into your brain (creator of this) just how to make it. I do not think at this point that it can be improved upon. God bless and keep all of you at Discount Ramps. Hugs and kisses and a world of thanks. By the way, my parents are foster parents, they are great!!

This carrier allow me to take my scooter camping at Festival where the camping is usually in a field. I have mounted the carrier on the back of my camper. Now I can navigate the entire Festival without the fear of falling. THANK-YOU.

This is the second carrier we bought from DiscountRamps.com. We had a need to take multiple cars, and multiple power chairs on a short trip, purchased this. Works great! Simple to use! Best price for a carrier I could find by far!
this is a great product and would be even better if it had a little ramp that folds up on the end to help make it easier to load onto the tailgate ramp.
This ramp was just as described. I am using it for a snowblower. working great.
Delivery was super fast - came the next day. The directions for assembly were clear and concise - VERY easy to put together.
We are very pleased with our purchase. Works great.
We were surprised that the carrier arrived the next day for free delivery. The directions for assembly were so clear and concise that it was easy to put together. The carrier is everything we wanted and more. We are very happy with our purchase.
I ordered a power chair carrier with ramp so I could carry my snowblower on the back of my pickup/snow plow truck. Not only was the delivery super fast but the assembly was simple and the carrier is top notch. It works perfectly to carry my snow blower. I couldn't be happier with my decision to buy from Discount Ramp
We were very happy with this product, it's price, and it's easy assembly. And when we contacted Customer Service for a question, they were so helpful and friendly and met our needs immediately. We would definitely purchase from this company again.
Nice carrier but heavier than 65 pounds and don't make the mistake we did: DO NOT ORDER FOR A PICKUP OR ANYTHING THAT SITS AS HIGH OFF THE GROUND AS A PICKUP
