We think that preparation is the most important step of getting a home lift.
First of all we need to find out if your premises has the structure and the space of being able to install a lift. This includes doing a few measurements of the space where the lift is going to be installed. You can do these measurements yourself or we can take a look together.
What needs to be measures is the maximum width, depth and height of the lift shaft as well as the floor to floor distance to calculate the exact travel height. We are happy to help you with this site survey but we do encourage people to do a check-up themselves.
1.2 Making space for the lift
In many cases the lift installation will require making a hole in your second, third or fourth floor depending on your wanted travel height. If the lift is placed next to a staircase this can sometimes be done without making the hole since there are enough free space. If you don’t have this free space we will have to this so called “hole-check-up”, to see if there are any pipes or any other issues that might be in the way of making this hole or holes.
If you are a handy-man/woman yourself you can simply download our site survey here.
Step 2. Home lift customization and service options
If we found out that your home suits perfectly well for installing one of our home lifts we will move forward to the next step which is customization. In this step we will sit down together and discuss on what size, colour of shaft, colour of carpet, colour of folio wrapping you want or any other optimization you want for your lift.
Insurance – Unfortunately we are not offering any insurance on our lift but we do have our 2 year warranty.
Warranty – We give our customers 2 years warranty on our installations and hardware except for the screw and nut where we offer an extensive warranty of 10 years if recommended service agreement is implemented. We want all of our customers to feel safe on having a proper functional lift without any hassle.
Maintenance – Our lifts doesn’t require any big amount of maintenance, mostly it is just checking the oil-level for the system and the battery once awhile. If you sign our service agreement we will offer you maintenance check-ups every 4, 6 or 12 months depending on agreement.
We recommend you to have a check-up at least once every year if you are using your lift on a regular basis.
