How to Keep Your Home Lift Safe for Your Family

 There are many benefits to having a domestic lift. But as is the case with any vehicle or appliance, safety is key in enabling it to function properly. From basic common sense such as keeping it clear for use and avoiding exceeding the weight limit, to ensuring it is well maintained. Looking after your home lift will extend its lifetime and optimise your enjoyment of it, and keep your home lift safe for your family.

The most important thing when having a lift installed is to consider its continual maintenance, carried out by professionals. All Gartec Home lifts come with a one-year warrantee as standard, so you don’t have to worry about any additional costs for the first 12 months. We also encourage customers to purchase one of our many life warranty options that keep you covered for the lifetime of your lift.

The actual servicing of your lift will depend on which model is installed, as well as the service package you choose – which can be tailored to suit your requirements. For extra peace of mind however, we give our customers access to our own 24-hour breakdown line that can be used in case of an emergency any time, day or night. At the end of the phone is a team of fully trained service and maintenance engineers, ready to help however they can.

While Gartec Home lifts are built to the highest standards, there may be times when parts need replacing in order to keep the lift working safely and efficiently. For this reason we also stock plenty of parts for every lift we supply, and offer next-day delivery and a spares-service team.

Of course, safety also includes taking basic precautions yourself. Being careful not to exceed the specified weight limit is important in preventing the lift from breaking down. Though should this happen, we are still on hand to assist in case of an emergency.

If you ever have any questions or queries about your family home lift, please do not hesitate to call. We are contactable 24/7 via phone and email and endeavour to provide our customers with all the information needed to keep your investment working at its best, so you can enjoy your home lift and all that it offers.
