Purchasing a wheelchair 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 handicap platform lift for your home.
Depending on the make and model, home handicap lifts may have a weight capacity from 500 to 750 lbs. During your home consultation, our Mobility Consultant will help you choose which model will fit your needs.
If you need to get your wheelchair or power chair up a wide-set straight or curved staircase, a wheelchair stair 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, instead. Our local teams are here to help you evaluate individual mobility goals as well as property requirements.
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 home handicap lifts are backed by the 101 Mobility One-year Limited Service Warranty in addition to the brand’s individual warranty.
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 Charleston offers affordable pricing that will fit your budget.
