Purchasing a platform lift for your home can be a life-changing choice – but the decisions don’t stop there. Here are some things to consider when choosing the best platform lift for your needs:
If you need to get your wheelchair or powerchair up a wide-set straight or curved staircase, an incline platform lift might be right for you. However, a steeper incline supported by a narrow staircase might call for a vertical platform lift. Is the incline higher than 14 feet? You might need to consider a residential elevator<link to residential elevator page>, instead. Our local teams are here to help you evaluate individual mobility goals as well as property requirements.
Deciding whether to rent or buy a vertical platform lift* depends on your budget and need. For example, if you expect to use your lift for only a short period of time, renting might be your best option. On the other hand, long-term usage might warrant the purchase of a new lift. Regardless, 101 Mobility offers affordable pricing that will fit your budget.
*Rental options only available for vertical platform lifts.
Some platform lifts can only carry up to 500 pounds, while others can support up to 750 pounds. Assessing the weight of potential users is important to finding the lift best built for your needs.
It is important to determine whether the platform lift can accommodate the configuration of your mobility device. Things to look at are wheel structure and width of platform.
What happens after installation? After the platform lift becomes a part of your home, it’s important to have support for any issues that might arise. All lifts are backed by 101 Mobility’s One-Year Limited Service Warranty in addition to the brand’s individual warranty. Be sure that the support you receive after purchase satisfies any foreseeable (and unforeseeable) needs.
