Question by smilingstks: Anyone know of a org. that helps the disabled to get a scooter rack for auto?
MY insurance Company paid for me to get a mobility scooter to become mobile. However I am on a very small fixed income and raising a granddaughter also. I have no money to buy a rack to carry the scooter on the car. Currently I am still not able to go anywhere outside of my home with the scooter .I have been told there is probably a org. out there somewhere that may help me to get a rack for the car. Does anyone know of a org or club who could help me? I did have the Rotary club here in Va. that built me a ramp, but they do not fund racks for cars. Help lead me in the right direction if you can!

First, check with your city’s or county’s departments for the disabled, they might know a place locally.

If your car already has a 2 inch reciever hitch for towing a trailer, you can get a lightweight aluminum platform from Harbor Freight that’s big enough for most mobility scooters and they also have loading ramps for them.

Harbor Freight has very low prices and you can buy online if there isn’t one near you.

And here’s their scooter carrier:

Item number: 66303

I hope this helps and give the little one a hug for me … she’s got a great grandmother.
