COVID-19 Notice

Preferred Elevator would like to assure our customers that we are taking all necessary steps to do our part in flattening the curve of COVID-19. We have developed a “No Family Contact” process for service, repairs and installations. Our Mechanic, who will be wearing a mask and gloves, will call you when we are at your front door and will discuss the issues or concerns you have with your unit. Our customer can then unlock the door, but there is no need to further greet the Mechanic or be present for the service, repair or installation. Please feel free to move to another part of the home while we are working. Final payment can be left for technician or can be done over the phone with our office.
We greatly appreciate your business during this time.

Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

Here Are the Benefits of Commercial Wheelchair Lift Installation

Commercial Wheelchair Lift Installation Preferred Elevator

Adding a commercial wheelchair lift to your office will make a world of difference for your employees

Today we will discuss the benefits of a commercial wheelchair lift installation. When you’re a business owner, you’re constantly thinking of ways to bring in revenue. One way to bring in more customers to your business is by making it more accessible or ADA-Compliant. When you show customers that you care about everyone’s needs, it makes your company a better place to visit. Everyone deserves to enjoy a local coffee shop or restaurant or any other commercial establishment that they love without having a lot of difficulties navigating throughout the building. Here are a few of the many benefits associated with a commercial wheelchair lift installation. 

A Commercial Wheelchair Lift Gives Your Customers Full Access

The main benefit of a wheelchair lift is that it will help your customers access every floor in your business which aids in their comfort. With customers being able to see and access all parts of your business, it also helps with product visibility. The more products or services your visitors are aware of, the more interested they may be in making a purchase or trying out a service. Greater access also sets you apart from your competition. 


Whether your commercial establishment is in a small or large building, we can make accommodations. Several platform sizes and configurations are available, and the weight limit for the wheelchair lifts that we install is 750 pounds. From enclosed and unenclosed wheelchair lifts to three-gate vertical platform lifts (VPLs), we can accommodate offices, restaurants, or any business that wants to make its environment more accessible. 


It’s dangerous for a wheelchair-enabled user or someone with limited mobility to strain themselves to navigate through a building. A wheelchair lift helps keep your customers safe while allowing them to maintain their independence. You never want a liability on your hands. Therefore, you should always strive to make your business as safe as possible for all customers. 

A Better Reputation

When you modify your business to ensure that your customers have the best experience, it boosts your company’s reputation. It’s genuinely the small things that matter. A disabled customer will appreciate visiting a business with widened pathways and doors, motion sensor features, and a wheelchair lift.
