Thinking of having a lift installed in a domestic building or workplace? The process is much simpler than you may think. Once a platform lift is installed and under constant use, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without one. They enhance accessibility and counter the problem that some of your employees and customer may have with stairs.
Let’s take a look at how simple the process of installing your new platform lift actually is:
- First Contact
Contacting a lift installer is easily done by email, phone or through a contact form on their website. Simply provide them with any relevant information regarding what type of lift you are considering and they can provide you with the best solution for your needs.
Once your requirements have been established and the correct system has been decided on, then you can be provided with a quote. The quote will lay out the price, delivery times and timescale of installation.
- Amend and Accept Quote
Customers are always given the opportunity to review the quote in case they have any questions. Changes to the quote can be made before any delivery, or installation work, takes place. All the details are made clear and unambiguous so that customers can make a fully informed decision before committing to installation.
- Draw up Plans
Your lift system and installation plans will be fully drawn up to demonstrate the job in hand. Complete site drawings work with your site drawing files so that every detail is perfect and all-important information is included. Drawings are sent over to customers to review and to make any amends they deem necessary. Only when the customer is completely satisfied with the drawings will an order be put through to the factory.
- Site Check
The final check consists of an expert visiting the site to ensure no delays arise on the day of installation. Logistic teams ensure that delivery, installation and hand over can be completed in one continuous visit.
Installation generally takes between 2-3 days, and up to a week for larger systems. Once the installation is complete and you are happy, handover and training documents are exchanged as well as complete commissioning certification from the lift installers.
