Vertical Platform Lift Installation

What Is Involved In a Vertical Platform Installation?
VPL projects come in a variety of shapes and sizes – making it difficult to make general statements about the installation process.There are some useful observations we can make:

1. The first step is to prepare the site and get it ready for the equipment. Lifts must be properly supported – either with a concrete base or properly supported walls.

2.  If installing a lift is going to be complex it is usually because of the site preparation.

3. Installing a lift outside a home or in a structure under construction tends to be much easier.

4. The second and usually far easier step is the installation and inspection of the lift.

5. The lift will require 110-volt power and if it has a hoistway, a phone line.

When installing a complex VPL project it is helpful to have a single contractor who will provide both the site preparation and complete the installation – avoiding the finger pointing between the contractor and the lift provider. EHLS is a licensed general contractor and we have been installing vertical platform lifts since 1991 – so we have the experience and ability to plan, manage and successfully install your VPL.

Testimonials

The Veteran’s Administration chose your company to install an outdoor lift for my 84 year old stepfather. You sent a young gentleman named Alex to do the installation. It was completed yesterday, and I must say, it was a pleasure having Alex at our home. He arrived early each day, worked non-stop (didn’t even stop for lunch) and left the place neat and clean. This is one hard working man and his pleasant demeanor makes him very easy to be around. Thanks for everything!

Last week I received a wheelchair lift and I just wanted to thank EHLS for providing me with the lift. I think you guys have a wonderful program, and you make people’s lives much easier. This wheelchair lift has giving me my independence back and I’m very grateful for that. It’s such a great feeling being able to get in and out of my house and not having to rely on family members and friends for their help. I would also like to thank the guys who installed the lift. Thank you again for this wheelchair lift, it has truly changed and brought so much happiness into my life.

Due to EHLS’ expertise in accessibility, the HomeMod Program is well on its way to making Chicago the most accessible city in the world.
