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.

EHLS’ quality of service has been great, and I have been pleased with everyone that I have worked with so far!!! I have been recommending EHLS & To The Top Home Elevators to everyone I know! I look forward to a future of independence.

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!

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.
