You can lead ducks to water but you can’t lead them out of a lift…

What do you do when you’re dreading a big game? Get stuck in your team hotel’s lift of course! That’s what happened to an American Football team in Oregon before a game with Colorado. Of course, we don’t think they intentionally wanted to get stuck in a lift and in fact, they did go on to win the game so maybe this could be a new pre-match ritual for luck? We bet Manchester United wished they’d got stuck in a ...

Helping to build homes in Miles Platting has been such a rewarding experience and it’s something we’ll never forget.

We were the chosen lift company to help modify a home for disabled access, which included installing a platform lift, and we worked alongside countless traders and businesses from all sectors to ...

If in doubt, go glass! – Glass Lifts

If in doubt, go glass! – Glass Lifts

What’s so good about glass lifts? Why should you install a glass lift over a conventional lift? Here is why.

One of the best, most effective way of giving your building or buisness a bit of a revamp is to give that old lift of yours the overhaul it has needed for so long. Not only are glass lifts an exciting addition to a property or business, they also give the effect of refinement and finesse, transforming even the oldest buildings ...

A Royal Visit

As you know, the Sheridan Lifts team have been busy down at the DIY SOS site helping to build homes for veterans in Miles Platting. Well, we were treated to a very royal visit today down at the project as Princes William and Harry came down to see how the work was going.

Doing work we’re proud of

We’ve been operating as a family-run, lift company for over thirty years and over that time there have been certain jobs that have meant more to us than others. For instance, installing platform lifts in commercial buildings to allow adequate disabled access, or completing installations in care homes have been projects that have brought us joy on a personal level. But there’s nothing we’ve found more satisfying than the project we’re working on at the minute.

Sheridan lifts are currently the ...

The first phase of work is underway for the ground-breaking project undertaken by BBC’s DIY SOS team to turn empty houses into a new community for veterans in Manchester.

Delving deeper with passenger lifts

You wouldn’t think passenger lifts would be become staples of popular culture but that’s exactly what they are. No longer serving a sole function of literally taking people from floor to floor, passenger lifts have morphed into metaphors and analogies; taking deep root in both music and TV & film.

There are a multitude of songs that refer to or use passenger lifts as some sort of symbol. Everyone from Eminem, Beyoncé, Aerosmith and Pink have all written songs that have ...
