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 fit where a ramp is unable to be placed.

They can be installed indoors or outdoors in homes or businesses.
