Vertical Platform Lifts

In The Greater Chicagoland Area

Home For Life Advantage offers vertical platform lifts (or porch lifts) for anyone with a mobility limitation or individuals using a mobility device. These wheelchair lifts provide easy access to raised decks, porches, and other raised areas. Our vertical platform lifts can be installed outdoors and indoors, giving you access to any raised landing that you need assistance with to reach safely.

These platform lifts are a fantastic alternative to ramps, sometimes the dimensions don’t work out for a ramp addition to your home or business. These lifts can fit where a ramp couldn’t provide more mobility to those individuals with certain limitations. 

They can be installed indoors or outdoor in any residential home. We will also install these for any business or commercial establishment in need.

Yes they can! Depending on your home’s or business’s layout a VPL can be an option for your garage rather than a ramp due to certain configurations of your layout.
