The Platform Lift Company Ltd

I contacted The Platform Lift Company to see if they could me resolve some access issues was having .since having to use a wheelchair I could no longer go upstairs in my home and didn't want to move to a bungalow. The salesman arrived 3 days later and discussed a number of options. As I wasn't keen on a stair lift I choose to have a small platform lift installed next to my staircase .This has made a massive difference to my life without all the stress of moving home.from my first phone call with the company my lift was fitted within 2 months .I found the guys fitting the lift very helpful and polite.and the aftercare and maintenance has been brilliant. I have recommended The Platform Lift Company to a friend of mine that also had no problems with the company.
