Preventing In-Home Elevator Accidents

A recent story by CBS This Morning covered the topic of home elevator safety, particularly as it pertains to children. The heartbreaking stories within the TV spot really touched our hearts and inspired us to write this blog this week.

The biggest reason is that most of the time this type of horrific situation is preventable when elevators are installed properly to code requirements. It underscores the importance of using experts like we have here at Transitions Lift + Elevator.

We are a professional local company that specializes in lift and elevator installation. We are licensed, permit inspected, and we even help teach others about all things related to home elevators.

Suffice it to say that we strongly recommend professional installation, as equipment purchased over the Internet and installed by non-professionals can easily lead to dangerous situations. It simply isn’t worth it to cut corners on costs when it comes to heavy machinery.

Safety should always be a top concern, and we at Transitions help our customers learn about their products and how to operate them safely. Accidents like the ones recounted by CBS This Morning are troublesome, and they simply must serve as a warning to the rest of us.

If you have any questions about home elevator safety, please give us a call or stop by one of our showrooms. It’s always a pleasure to help customers improve their safety knowledge, and we’re eager to assist in any way we can.
