Walkers - getting them in and out of vehicles

by Sylvia D.
(On the Beach)

My mom is 86 years old.

She has a walker that weighs 20 pounds, my dad has a three wheel walker that weights about 15 pounds.

My mom drives an SUV and is alert and a little mobile but very shakey when standing or walking too much but does not have alot of strength - (to lift both walkers in and out of car).

A thousand dollar lift is not a possibility.

Other than building a portable ramp at home to push it up and into the car I am looking for suggestions because obviously this idea will not work once she is away from home.
