    Heya @Kelvin and welcome to the community. I hope you're doing great today?

    I'm not 100% on places to go for wheelchair hoists, but I'll just pop your discussion over into the Aids and adaptations category, so more people in the know will be able to see it and hopefully offer you some pointers. I hope that's ok?

    It is expensive to get a hoist put in a  car. You need to also consider maintainance because when it goes wrong you can be stranded. Do you get PIP if so have you considered a motability car. I get a new hoist put in my car when my new motabilty car gets delivered.
