Practical tips 

  • If you’re planning on using a ladder lift during your move, we recommend having at least 3 other people available to lend a hand. You’ll need their help when assembling the lift and to safely operate the lift during your move.
  • A self-assembly ladder lift can only be transported in a van or on a trailer. It cannot be towed by a car with a tow bar and it won’t fit into an estate car. 
  • Removal lifts are electronically operated, so plan ahead to ensure you have a plug socket and an extension cable available if necessary.
