How Can a Home Lift Benefit You?
A residential lift will benefit any individual that struggles with mobility. Rather than installing a ramp onto your home, residential elevators are a great alternative.
They are not intrusive on the property like a ramp can be. They also benefit any individual that relies on a manual wheelchair, power wheelchair, electric scooter, or any other mobility device that is seeking more independence.
A vertical platform lift or a stair lift will allow someone to be more independent within their home or even at work.
What Are the Benefits of A Vehicle Lift?
Vehicle lifts allow you to transport your device to and from your destination. A vehicle wheelchair lift will allow a mobility device to be taken on the road with ease.
With an exterior vehicle lift, it is as easy as hitching your mobility device to the back of your vehicle and off you go!
Similarly, an interior vehicle wheelchair lift allows you to transport your mobility device inside of your vehicle, keeping it away from the danger of the elements.
There is no longer a need to worry about how you will transport your power wheelchair, electric scooter, or even your manual wheelchair.
