Hoist for car for electric wheelchair…

Hi, I’ve been thinking about buying a second hand car and getting a hoist to get an electric wheelchair in the boot. Does anyone know what kind of cars might be best suited to this sort of modification – I’m not sure how much space a hoist would need – and also roughly how much this sort of adjustment might cost? Any starting points would be much appreciated. Thanks! D x

I’ve seen an estate car modified with a hoist, which worked well. Lifting the tailgate created enough space for the hoist to swing the wheelchair in and out.

It’s best to find some approved installers of adaptions and pose the question to them.
