Exterior hoist lifts are a great way to add access and convenience to a van. Hoist lifts are available in both manual and electric models.

These are more suitable for lifting heavier loads and for those who don't have the strength or stamina to manually operate a manual hoist lift. When looking for a hoist lift for your van, it is important to make sure that it is properly sized for your vehicle and is recommended for your specific make and model. With the right model of hoist lift, you can ensure that your passengers are able to safely enter and exit your van. Harmar offers the Harmar Exterior Hoist Lift – AL 200 & 400 Series
