Thank you so very, very much. You made my day and life much easier for me and my daughter, who called EHLS for the wheelchair lift. Thank you EHLS!

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

I was most satisfied with the salesperson, he was very knowledge. The installers were great as well, they were very professional and clean. We are satisfied with both products installed they are awesome.

Your technicians just finished installing the porch lift outside my home and it looks nice and operates well! The technicians were both very nice and I feel like they did an excellent job installing the lift.

Thank You Again! The lift will improve our daily lives tremendously.


I was satisfied with everything. The cost, the work, and the workers. The workers were very nice, and problem solved as the built it. They just did a great job.
