Question: Do you have any ideas for how to best transport a manual wheelchair in a regular sized car? When we go shopping the wheelchair takes up the entire trunk.
Answer: I'm not really sure what type of wheelchair you have or what type of car you have or how many people are in it, etc. However, there are various folding wheelchairs available on the market. A lightweight folding wheelchair would be your best bet. Try and find a wheelchair that is as compact as possible. You obviously don't want to have to buy a new wheelchair, or car, so I can only suggest that you put the wheelchair in the trunk of the car and the groceries in the back seat, or vice versa. If you can't find a simple solution you may purchase a wheelchair carrying rack that attaches to your car's bumper. If you don't already own a folding wheelchair you should view them at a store that sells wheelchairs and hopefully one of these will be able to solve your problem. If you are going to buy one, make sure you don't buy a model purely for its size. The wheelchair should fulfill all of your needs and also be comfortable.
