A look back

A look back

The last couple of weeks have been memorable indeed for the team here at Sheridan Lifts. We’ve been fortunate enough to give back to our community, specifically the veteran community. 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 ...

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.

As you can imagine, everyone got a little bit excited at the prospect of being amongst royalty and it was a bit of a novelty seeing them walking ...

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 ...

DIY SOS work has started

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. Nick Knowles’ team have partnered up with a whole host of local traders, including Sheridan Lifts, to complete the project, as well as charity Walking with the Wounded.

A broken lift can have you feeling trapped – Lift Company

Many people depend on lifts for their mobility and freedom, especially older and disabled people who live in high rises or indeed any kind of building which has any number of stairs. So if a lift in a domestic building, or even a commercial building, breaks down it can leave a person literally trapped; unable to socialise, go to work or leave their homes. When a lift breaks down, which is disappointing but sometimes unavoidable, there needs to be a ...

Would you want a deathtrap lift installed in your building? – Lift Company

Yes that’s a serious question! The paternoster lift is a special kind of lift that has no doors and moves up and down the building shaft on a continuous loop. Named after the Lord’s Prayer, you can only fit one or two passengers inside each cabin and they’re thought to be highly efficient; if not dangerous. Paternoster lifts are kind of dumbwaiters for people when you think about it! Passengers must pay close attention when stepping on and off as ...

Whilst we were collecting pogs and Pokémon cards and playing out until our Mum’s shouted us in for tea, kids today are going through break ups and they have ...
