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.

Scenarios That Might Encourage You to Install a Home Elevator

Scenarios That Might Encourage You to Install a Home Elevator

Here are times when you might want to install a home elevator.

Has the thought of installing a home elevator ever crossed your mind? Elevators are often found in commercial settings, so the idea of putting one in your home may seem a little unusual. With that said, it’s not as strange as you may think, and there are actually a few scenarios in which getting one installed can be a great idea. Here are times when you might want to install a home elevator.

Someone at Home is Losing Mobility

One of the main purposes of home elevators is to help people navigate their homes when it becomes harder for them to move. Perhaps there’s someone at home who’s developed a degenerative illness that limits their mobility. In scenarios like this, they’ll need an easier way to get up and down the stairs, and a home elevator is the perfect solution to restore accessibility to the house.

You’re Getting Home Improvements Done

A home elevator installation can be a wise move when you’re in the middle of getting home improvement projects done. Since home renovations can already get messy and take up space, you might as well tackle other projects, like elevator installations, at the same time so that you don’t have to make your home messy again in the future.

You’re Preparing for the Future

It’s also smart to plan ahead for a home elevator installation when building a new home. Perhaps you’re planning to live out your golden years in your home, but you’re concerned that you won’t be able to get up and down the stairs once you reach a certain age. Planning ahead for a space that can accommodate an elevator is a wise idea!
