Thinking about having a home lift installed in your home but not sure if it's worth the time and money? Well, believe it or not, it is. If you still have doubt, then, keep reading the following article, and you will be surprised how many benefits are associated with a home lift.
First of all, it can help alleviate back pain. The majority of adults deal with lower back pain on a daily basis nowadays. In fact, it's one of the most common reasons adults go see their family physician. Why? Well, there are a host of reasons, but what it comes down to is the way we treat our bodies. We put them through unnecessary tests and trials all the time. And we are unsafe about how we go about it. For example, carrying large loads of groceries, luggage, and other things up the stairs. Let's be honest here: how often do you lift with your legs? How often do you carry more than you should and put undue strain on your back? Well, when you have a home lift installed, those days are over. All you have to do is slide your load onto the home lift, secure it, and start it up. Then you can walk upright and comfortably up the stairs. No strain, no back pain.
Then, it can keep you from tripping and falling on the stairs. It's easy enough to fall on the stairs when you are not carrying a single thing? Why? Because we do things like climb stairs with our mind on auto pilot all the time. We've done it a million times before, so why concentrate on the next step? Now, couple this inattention with arm loads of objects and you are just begging for trouble. And who knows how serious the injury from that next fall will be? Just cut out a piece of the problem with a home lift.
What’s more, it can decrease liability when renting out your lift. Imagine the following grim scenario: you rent out your beach house to a family. Their child is helping them drag their luggage up the stairs. When he almost reaches the top, the 8 year old slips and tumbles down the stairs. He breaks his back along the way. A terrible, terrible thing. And to make matters worse, the parents decide to sue you, stating unsafe stairs. Even though you know that their son was carrying too much up the stairs, how does the judge and jury? Probably not. More than likely you are going to be stuck paying the bills for the poor, unfortunate child. And your slapping palm to your forehead and shaking your head remembering how you were considering installation of a home lift. Why didn't you just have it done and avoid this entire mess altogether?
