At the Barrier Free Store, we’ve made it our mission to provide aging and mobility-restricted residents in Marquette, MI, and throughout the Upper Peninsula with the mobility aids and aging-in-place products they need to maintain their independent living standards. We routinely work with caregivers, doctors, therapists, and loved ones to make sure our home renovations maximize safety and accessibility. As a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), we have the training and expertise necessary to understand how best to perform these specific types of home improvements. With years of experience working with elderly and mobility-restricted individuals, we also have immense knowledge of the best types of products to use for unique situations. We can help you ascertain which of our mobility scooters, stair lifts, wheelchair ramps, lift chairs, or other aging-in-place products will best serve your needs. And, we’ve chosen to align with the most trusted and respected manufacturers offering these items to ensure we deliver products and solutions of the highest quality.
When you turn to the Barrier Free Store for aging-in-place products and services, you’ll be partnering with a local company based in Marquette rather than a large national distributor headquartered in another state. As a member of the Upper Peninsula community, we are committed to improving the lives of our neighbors. That’s why we offer personalized service, starting with a complimentary, in-home assessment by one of our experienced representatives, who will evaluate your residence and provide suggestions on how to improve its safety and accessibility. And, once your home improvements have been completed, we’ll always be here to provide prompt support should any product we’ve installed ever need servicing, something we know is important to you.
The Barrier Free Store offers a wide variety of mobility and disability aids that can transform your home inside and out. One of the most popular renovations we perform is installing stair lifts. With their comfortable, motorized seats, these exceptional products give homeowners the ability to access upper and lower floors with safety and confidence. Our lifts are compatible with just about any type of staircase, and we also offer outdoor models for customers with homes perched atop a steep flight of stairs.
Lift chairs are another popular item we can provide for Upper Peninsula residents. These motorized armchairs gently raise and lower their occupants and are perfect for anyone who needs a little extra help transitioning from a sitting to standing position. The lift chairs we offer are available in a wide selection of colors, styles, and upholsteries.
If you use a wheelchair or power scooter, ramps and platform lifts are a necessity. Whether you’re looking for a sturdy aluminum outdoor ramp, a portable wheelchair ramp, or a threshold ramp, we have what you need to make your approach to the door a breeze. We can also install an automatic door opener for maximum convenience and accessibility. For more significant height transitions, a platform lift can transport both you and your mobility scooter or wheelchair to an upper floor with just the push of a button. If you’re in need of an electric scooter, we offer a variety of models ranging from sleek portables to powerful off-roaders. And, we install no-threshold showers, walk-in tubs, drop-down cabinets, and many other home modification products that can help improve your home’s safety and accessibility.
So why wait? The Barrier Free Store is ready to provide a home renovation that will increase your independence and confidence for years to come. Contact the Barrier Free Store today and schedule a complimentary home assessment at your residence in Marquette, MI.

"It (Bruno custom curve stairlift) saved us from leaving our home!"
"My stair climber has made it possible for me to stay in my home and I am pleased with the bathroom remodel/updates. The employees are very friendly, efficient, helpful, and polite!"
“I am extremely satisfied with the lift and all who worked on it. Thank you for everything!”
“My dad’s strength deteriorated over a short period of time due to medicines he needed to take. Your company provided prompt service. We most appreciated the person who had the foresight to have a stair lift in stock because my dad basically needed an emergency installation for his safety and mine, so we could safely get upstairs. Thank you to everyone for your kindness and quick assistance at a difficult time. My dad loves the lift!”
