Our Design and Solution
After confirming the installation site size, lift type, ceiling, car floor, hoist frame color, color of stainless steel (guide rail/car wall), car call and landing call, and other details with Mike, we were able to provide him with a design and solution that met his needs. We designed a home lift with a pit of 150mm and a maximum car size of 1170L * 870W * 2100H mm. Finally, we confirmed that it would be a home lift with a hoistway frame, and the landing doors would be manually operated with a left-hand opening.

Our Delivery

We ensured that Mike was fully involved in the production process by sharing photos of the lift’s progress. He was pleased to see how the lift was coming along. Additionally, we thoroughly tested the lift to ensure it met our high standards before delivering it to Mike. Our commitment to customer satisfaction also meant that we provided him with installation and operation manuals, a two-year warranty, and lifetime technical support.

To make the installation process as smooth as possible, we packaged the elevator and frame separately and provided Mike with a packing list. Each package was labeled in both English and Chinese, making it easy for the installation team to quickly identify the corresponding parts. We also arranged for sea transportation to ensure the safe delivery of the goods to their destination, keeping Mike informed of the shipping process until he received the cargo. Our attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction ensured that Mike was satisfied with our service and the quality of the product we delivered.


Mike was very satisfied with the services we provided, and he praised our professionalism and responsible attitude. He said that his family loved the new home lift, which made their daily lives much more convenient. We were happy to help Mike achieve his dream of having a home lift and providing him with high-quality products and services. We believe that adding a home lift to your house can be a great investment in your family’s comfort and convenience.
