Q: How simple is the Mobilift to use?
A: It’s extremely simple to use, anyone can use it, just turn the highly-geared crank handle clockwise to lift the person up and anti-clockwise to lower them, there’s nothing to it.
Q: Is the Mobilift available to hire and if so, what’s the minimum hire period.

Q: What certification does the Mobilift have and is there anything we need to consider in terms of testing or maintenance?

A: Completely reliable, the absence of batteries, electrical components or hydraulics means that it’s pretty much bulletproof in terms of reliability, it can even be used safely in the event of an emergency evacuation, unlike electrically powered lifts.
Q: If I decide to purchase a Mobilift, what’s the lead time?
A: The Mobilift is manufactured in Canada and we normally say that you need to allow yourself 4-6 weeks, from the date of order, for the lift to be delivered. In the event that you have an urgent requirement sooner than that, we’ll always try and assist you by providing one of our hire units (if available).
Q: How much notice do I need to give for a hire booking?
A: The more notice the better, we have a limited number of hire units and can get extremely busy. If you find out late on, as often happens, that you’ve a disabled guest attending an event, please always ring us, we guarantee we’ll do our best to help.
