A Freedom wheelchair lift for home use has a weight capacity of 750lbs, which should accommodate a person in an electric scooter or someone in a wheelchair. Wheelchair platform lifts vertically transfer you from your porch to your driveway, allowing you to go anywhere you want. Our wheelchair lifts are an economical solution to home accessibility. Available for maximum lifting heights 53" or less, we can help you select from our home lift systems to suit your individual needs.
Most often the wheelchair lift price is less than the cost of installing a ramp. A ramp must be at least 12” long for every 1 inch of rise. Which means even if you only have a 10” high porch, your ramp would need to be at least 10 feet long. There is a lot of skilled labor involved in building a ramp, so the cost can be quite high when you consider the amount of material and the time it will take.
The Freedom Wheelchair Lifts take up significantly less space, and can be installed in a few hours, if the site is prepared. Customers have found that wheelchair porch lift prices are significantly lower than the quotes they’ve received for having a ramp installed.
