What To Consider When Buying a Vertical Platform Lift

Selecting the right lift for your needs involves considering several important factors.

These include:

Accessibility Needs

Consider the height that needs to be covered, the weight capacity, and the size of your wheelchair, scooter, or powered chair. Ensure the lift can comfortably accommodate you and your mobility equipment.


Is the platform lift intended for use outdoors, indoors, or in a semi-outdoor environment? The location affects the type of lift you need because outdoor lifts must be weather-resistant.

Drive System

Different types of vertical platform lifts have different drive systems, such as hydraulic, screw-driven, or electric cable-driven. Consider the maintenance requirements, speed, and noise level of each system.

Installation Space

Your lift needs to fit within the dimensions of the installation space. You should also consider factors such as the location of power sources or the need for a shaft.


Local building codes that regulate vertical platform lifts, along with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, must be met.

Handrails and Guardrails

You may want handrails or guardrails for additional safety.
