101 Mobility’s outdoor platform lifts are durable and reliable, specifically designed to withstand the elements.
Whether you’re looking for a vertical platform lift to conquer steep slopes or an inclined platform lift to travel along an existing staircase, 101 Mobility will find you the best solution for safe and reliable floor-to-floor transportation.
Residential Platform lifts come in all shapes and sizes. Many are purpose-built for indoor or outdoor use and have features specific to the needs of the home or venue. Platform Lifts can be categorized in different ways: VPLs (vertical platform lifts), also called “porch lifts”, can be installed indoors or outdoors, and look similar to open-air elevators, but require less space as the motor and gear box are contained within the unit itself. Inclined Platform Wheelchair lifts, as the name suggests, are similar to stairlifts with wheelchair platforms rather than stand-alone seats.
Indoor and outdoor platform lift solutions have many similarities, with the major difference being that outdoor-specific products are specifically designed to withstand harsh elements, such as freezing temperatures, UV light, and rain.
Platform lifts are ideal solutions for individuals who rely on scooters, wheelchairs, powerchairs, and other mobility devices. The user can easily roll his or her mobility device onto the unit’s platform and push a button to be effortlessly elevated to a raised deck or porch.

With the variety of platform lift types and features, it is important to consider the following items when choosing your platform lift:
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 steep incline will require a vertical platform lift. Our expert Mobility Consultants 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.
*Rental options only available for certain vertical platform lifts.
Each platform lift model has a specific weight capacity ranging from 500 pounds to 750 pounds. Our Mobility Consultants will assess the weight of any potential users as well as their wheelchairs, powerchairs, scooters, or other cargo to ensure that your platform lift can handle all of your needs.
It is important to determine whether the platform lift can accommodate the configuration of your mobility device. Our Mobility Consultants will look at features such as wheel structure and width of platform to ensure compatibility with your mobility device.
What happens after installation? After the platform lift becomes a part of your home, it’s important to have support for routine maintenance and any questions that may arise. All new platform lifts are backed by 101 Mobility’s One-Year Limited Service Warranty in addition to the brand’s individual warranty so you can feel confident in your purchase.
