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.

Very good service – the stair climber has changed our lives for the better! Thanks again.

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!
