Why Size Matters

When it comes to choosing a residential lift or elevator for your home, you need to consider the size of the mobility solution and the size of the wheelchair/mobility device. Some of the challenges homeowners face when installing a residential lift or elevator are finding space for their new mobility solution and ensuring that the cabin or the lift itself is designed to carry a wheelchair (and an additional passenger if needed). As a property owner, you should be looking for a residential lift or elevator that is catered to the width and length of standard wheelchairs and, in some cases, has additional space for a passenger when necessary.

While many outdoor wheelchair lifts are designed to easily accommodate standard wheelchairs, many of them require extensive construction and site preparation for installation. As a homeowner, you might not have the space to install a residential outdoor wheelchair lift right away and delay the purchase until you have the time and finances for a costly and time-consuming home renovation. If you’re considering buying a residential wheelchair lift, but you’re limited on space, RAM Elevators + Lifts has the perfect mobility solution for you.
