Utilizing small wheels and lighter materials, transport wheelchairs can tip the scale at as little as 14.8 lbs., ideal for those looking for a highly portable option. Transport chairs also tend to be more affordable and offer the benefit of increased mobility without breaking the bank.
This type of lightweight wheelchair is often referred to as a “transfer chair” and is typically used for shorter trips. Since it’s geared towards storability and portability, it features four smaller wheels and dispenses with the larger, rear-mounted wheels that characterize standard wheelchairs. Its construction ensures that it’s always foldable and portable, but does so at the expense of self-propulsion. Instead, a transport chair is built so that a caregiver can easily push the user from point A to B.
At 1800wheelchair, we carry the best selection of transport chairs on the web, including an exciting and inexpensive proprietary model. We also have an extensive wheelchair accessories section, where you’ll find a variety of customization options to help ensure that your wheelchair is a perfect fit.

Utilizing smaller wheels and lightweight materials, these wheelchairs can weight as little as 15 lbs. And, starting at under $100, transport wheelchairs offer mobility at a very affordable price.
A transport wheelchair or folding transport chair is a wheelchair that is defined by its four small wheels - it does not have the traditional large 24” rear wheels that most wheelchairs have.
The transport chair was designed exclusively to transport people in a wheelchair for short trips to the Dr, restaurant, and traveling on a trip. Note: when sitting in a transport chair the person sitting in the chair cannot self propel in the chair, they will always need to be pushed by a cargiver. Because a transport wheelchair does not have large rear wheels it is much lighter than a traditional wheelchair making it super easy to lift into a car.
Another great feature of the folding transport wheelchair is that in addition to the chair collapsing and folding, most transport chairs’ back folds down thus creating a super small and tight footprint when storing the chair in a car or a closet.
