A vehicle lift is a mobility tool that helps individuals who use a wheelchair or a scooter. The scooter or wheelchair can be safely stored inside or outside the vehicle with little effort and transported to the destination for use by installing a vehicle lift in a van or on a vehicle. Being able to take a mobility device on the go is very helpful for people that would otherwise be homebound.
There are a variety of vehicle lifts available for purchase. Rest assured the professionals at Next Day Access will help you choose the right lift for your needs. To ensure you get the best vehicle lift for your needs, here are three questions to ask before buying a vehicle lift.
What type of lift do you need?
The type of vehicle lift you need will depend on several factors, but an essential element is what kind of vehicle you drive. It is good to research which lift is most compatible with your vehicle.
For example, if you have a van, the vehicle lift will differ from the vehicle lift for a sedan. You will also want to consider if you need more cargo space in the vehicle. If so, a Bruno Out-Sider Vehicle Lift may be a good option for you.
Is the lift easy to operate and install?
At Next Day Access, we can install your vehicle lift quickly with little interruption to your daily activities. How your vehicle lift operates is up to you. You can choose between electric vehicle lifts or a manual vehicle lift. Each version has its benefits.
The electric version allows you to slide your mobility device onto the lift and have it lifted and secured with a button push. A manual lift uses a rolling mechanism where you manually roll the lift into its proper position.
Is the vehicle lift ADA compliant?
What does it mean for a vehicle lift to be ADA compliant? According to the ADA or Americans with Disabilities Act website, this act was put in place to outline a specific set of standards that facilities, workplaces, and accommodations must obey.
Therefore, when a company is ADA compliant, the mobility devices they sell, including vehicle lifts, must meet ADA standards. These standards ensure that you are less likely to be injured using their products.
At Next Day Access, we are ADA compliant. If you have any questions about the Next Day Access vehicle lifts or any mobility or accessibility product, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our experts have you covered from the most common questions to specific technical and safety details.
