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.

Three Indicators That You Need A Residential Elevator

Did you know that residential elevators are now becoming popular?

Did you know that residential elevators are becoming more and more popular? They are an excellent addition to any home. A home elevator adds convenience for you, your loved ones, or any guests visiting your home. It even makes your home more valuable if you plan on selling it sometime in the future. We could name a lot of reasons why investing in a residential elevator is the right decision, but keep reading for the top 3 reasons you need a home elevator.

1) Do You Struggle To Climb The Stairs?

Aging means that our bodies perform differently than they used to. If you find that you’re having problems walking up and down the steps, then a residential elevator is right for you. Often, older adults may choose to move into a rancher to make their lifestyles more comfortable. Investing in a residential elevator means that you don’t have to downsize or adjust to a new living condition.

2) Are You Responsible for Taking Care Of Elders?

If your parents are aging, you may feel the need to take care of them. If you know that they have mobile limitations, then it may be best for you to have a residential elevator installed. You can ensure that they’ll be comfortable throughout their golden years by making sure that they can move to each floor with ease, especially if falling is a significant concern.

3) Does Your Home Have at Least Three Stories?

If your home has a lot of floors, it can become tiresome to maneuver through the many levels of your home.  Do you shop often? Imagine the convenience of no longer needing to tug, lift, or drag bags or items from downstairs to upstairs. A residential elevator is also convenient if you regularly have guests over. They will be able to maneuver through your home conveniently and in style. Residential elevators have customizable options, adding polish and visual appeal to your home.

Another Consideration

If you love hosting outdoor events, Preferred Elevator also installs vertical wheelchair lifts that you can use to accompany your residential elevator. A lack of mobility doesn’t have to limit a person’s options. At Preferred Elevator, we provide solutions to make sure that you and your loved ones can maneuver through life with ease.
