... to be able to get heavy objects from her car to the ground.

I need a clever and easy way for me to get heavy objects like a pressure washer out of the back of my car to the ground and then back into the car. I'm thinking a scissor jack or something like that might do. Anyone have any suggestions?

That would be perfect but I can't afford the $300+ price tag. Thanks for responding.

Is there any chance of having a ramp built? Sort of like a wheelchair ramp? There is also the pulley system.
After looking at the date, I'm thinking you probably found an answer already, though!
