Lift Works Great But There Are Other Issues

Pros

Heavy Duty Quality Parts & Construction Fast Shipping

Cons

Needs Better Packing Design Improvement (Foot Rest) Quality Control (Up/Down Switch)

Service & Delivery

N/A
picture1picture2
Item was not packed well enough for what it weighs. Two of the three packages were split open. FedEx was the carrier. The base that chair fits onto was bent, easily fixed with a pair of Channel Lock Pliers. No damage. The Foot Rest is entirely too small for a large person, causing your feet to dangle over the edge. (Safety Issue) The Magnet in the Remote Up/Down Switch was loose and rolling around inside the box with an electrical switch. (Safety Issue) Poor Quality Control, who ever packed this should have noticed. Improvement is needed in your Packing Department, Quality Control, and Design. Other than those issues I've had the lift for a little over a week now and it works great. I'm satisfied with the product and would recommend to others.

MS Patient with Foot Drop

Pros

Very Sturdy, low maintenance, A solid ride. Comfy seat.

Cons

Seat is starting to wobble and I'm not sure why. The Foot rest could be bigger and there could be more distance between the seat and it. My one leg dangles.

Service & Delivery

Delivery was fast and in 2 boxes as I recall
I've had this now going on almost 2 years. I was lucky to have very wide steps. I also replaced the existing long power cord with a shorter one so there was no unsightly slack and a flat plug. My electrician put the outlet in at the right spot.

Cons

6 flags ride for very large people, not many options for 500 lb people, i screwed on a 2 by 4 by 18' wide to the foot rest so she could really use her feet to hold herself

Service & Delivery

This chair faces down to accomodate very Large xxxx people, I installed this for a woman of 600 lbs, she might of been scared, on the ride down but she was able to exit the home as she needed, not many options for the price. less than 3 hours to install, 2 guys,

Pros

Sturdy

Cons

Bulky and Unsafe
Stairlift is not designed for narrow stairways. Seat should be designed to position a patient facing across stairs instead of facing downward.
AmeriGlide replies:
Thank you for your response. Our Heavy Duty Stair Lift has a 500 pound capacity. In order to safely lift this amount all the weight must be placed directly over the track. Therefore the seat must face down the track instead of perpendicular to it like our other models. Although looking down the stairs may feel strange to some users, this is a safe position. In addition, the Heavy Duty Stair Lift has a wider seat to better fit larger users. Because of the positioning and the wider seat, this stair lift does take up more room than regular units. If you have any concerns about your safety, please contact us immediately.

Lightweight, Easy Storage, Sturdy, Safe

We are using stairlift to compliment our one elevator. We have many very elderly persons in the building and this product makes them feel safer.

Elderly

Pros

Sturdy & Safe

Cons

The installation of this stair lift was designed to assist my wife with an impossible task of climbing/ascending 25 flights of stairs to our apartment. My wife had become hostage to her inability to get up and down in an effort to simply go to the doctors office, food shopping, or simply enjoy fresh air in our back yard. This product was one half of the cost of the others we researched and found to be quite, reliable and a safe means to continue to enjoy our lives with the freedom we once enjoyed. Thank You AmeriGlide

Pros

Safe, Sturdy

Cons

The Stair Lift is used to gain access to our American Legion Post. Without it we would not be in compliance with ADA Act, and we would not be able to have our video lottery equipment.
