Our Selection of Transport Wheelchairs

Using compact wheels and lightweight materials, transport wheelchairs can weigh as little as 14.8 lbs., making them perfect for individuals seeking a highly portable solution. Additionally, transport chairs are often more budget-friendly and provide enhanced mobility without straining finances.

This type of lightweight wheelchair is often referred to as a “transfer chair” and is typically used for shorter trips. Because it prioritizes storability and portability, it incorporates four smaller wheels and eliminates the larger, rear-mounted wheels typically found on standard wheelchairs. Its design guarantees it remains foldable and portable, although this comes at the cost of self-propulsion. Instead, a transport chair is designed for the caregiver to easily push the occupant from point A to point 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. If you're looking for a rolling walker that can convert into a transport wheelchair - be sure to check the Duet Transport.

      Lightweight Transport Wheelchairs & Companion Chairs

      Looking for a lightweight wheelchair at a great price? We have a solid option: lightweight transport wheelchairs. 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.   

      Here are some things to consider when buying a folding transport wheelchair

      • Chair Weight - the lighter the chair teh easier it is to lift and to push - we recommend a transport chair that weighs under 20 lbs.
      • Comfort - some transport wheelchairs have ergonomic seating and back for extra comfort and posture

      The Medline ultra light 14.8 lbs transport chair is our lightest transport chair.

      The Strongback ergonomic transport chair is our most comfortable transport folding chair.

      Note: all transport wheelchair fold into any car trunk or closet.

      1800wheelchair offers many customization options under our wheelchair accessories. Here, you'll find wheelchair ramps that will help you climb stairs, backpacks to store your belongings, lifts to transport your chair, and cushions to provide comfort.

      Also, we've got a full selection of person lifts, adult diapers and heavy duty lift chairs. Call our phone representatives at 1-800-320-7140 or order online. Our phone agents are standing by to answer your questions. We offer fast delivery of all products to your door. All orders over $59 receive free shipping.
