A lift for a wheelchair that takes a person vertically to avoid stairsThe Top Company in Marquette, MI, and Throughout the Upper Peninsula for Platform Lifts

For those who use a wheelchair to navigate the world, getting to spaces that are elevated or only accessible by stairs—such as basements—is a major concern. Our team serving Marquette, Michigan, and the Upper Peninsula can help set you up with high-quality platform lifts to make your home easier to navigate. We can install both interior and exterior home lifts.

Benefits of Platform Lifts

Platform lifts from Barrier Free Store can suit many different mobility needs. They accommodate both wheelchairs and scooters and:

  • Provide a smooth, quiet ride to your destination
  • Have a self-lowering folding ramp
  • Feature many safety options, such as obstruction sensors and emergency stop

Additionally, lifts that go above 10 feet run on DC battery power, so they won’t go out during a power outage.

Residential Wheelchair Lifts

For people who use wheelchairs and cannot use a stairlift, getting to the second floor of their homes is difficult to impossible. A residential wheelchair lift resolves this problem with a mechanism that elevates you to the second floor without needing to leave your wheelchair. Essentially, it’s like a personal home elevator. You roll onto the platform lift, press a button, and you’re taken to your destination upstairs.

Outdoor Platform Lifts

These lifts are weather resistant and offer an alternative method of entry in areas with insufficient space for a ramp. They also provide access for up to 14 feet, which makes it easy to access high decks or home entryways. We’ll discuss which options are best for you during your consultation.

“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!”
