DO your maintenance on your lifts and elevators. We have been seeing more people becoming aware of the need to service their equipment. This is a very good thing. Just like all mechanical items some maintenance is required to keep them dependable. After safety, dependability is probably the most important thing a piece of equipment must be. I am not aware of too many people who buy a stairlift or wheelchair lift that don’t need it. They bought because they need it. Nothing worse than going to use a lift and it doesn't work. Planned maintenance will minimize sudden failure. Most lift manufacturers recommend their products looked at every 6 months. Some people think that is excessive, but I can assure you it is not. Proper maintenance will keep your lift safe and dependable for many years.
