Porch Lifts

Residential Vertical Platform Lift

A residential vertical platform lift helps provide space efficient access to a raised deck, porch, or even floor to floor access for your home. The most common application of a vertical platform lift is replacing or augmenting multiple steps in a garage where space is limited and a ramp takes up too much space  A vertical platform lift can accommodate any wheelchair, power wheelchair or scooter up to 14’. Each lift is configured specifically to the site so that the tower and door swing in the direction that matches the requirements of the space.  A porch lift has a continuous charged DC battery-powered motor for lifts over 10’ ensuring operation even with a power outage.

MediEquip has a vertical platform lift on display at both stores. We highly suggest before purchase, that a MediEquip representative come out to your home and preview your site. Porch lifts generally are shipped from Bruno in 5-7 business days.
