How do I start?
A wheelchair lift is the best alternative to a long ramp into a home or business. Like an elevator, a wheelchair lift has a platform that lifts up to 750 pounds from 14 inches to a maximum height of 14 feet. If you have 2 or more steps to enter your home or business, or if you need to travel to the second floor, this type of lift can save you time, money, and space.
The key difference between wheelchair lifts and stair lifts is that they can carry you and your wheelchair/scooter and in some cases a second person standing, like a caregiver. These lifts can go inside or outside and some of residential wheelchair lifts can access up to 3 levels in your home. Usually, there is more than one model that will work for you.
We provide a FREE EVALUATION, in-person, over the phone or virtually, to gauge your needs and then recommend the best model of wheelchair lift for you. This is the most important decision you will make, and we'll help make it easy, so that you pick the right piece of equipment specific to you.
