Routine service is an important part of owning a stairlift, porch lift, elevator or dumbwaiter. Proactive maintenance and proper care of your equipment are critical to keeping your system in excellent working order and operating safely. It will also significantly reduce unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs. They may also help with resale value when records indicate that maintenance was done per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
