About Us

We are a family business providing local support for the full greater NY region. We use no commission-based salespeople, answering services or outside installers. All work, from consultations to installations and services are performed by members of our own company. We know that a family in need of a stair lift is often going through a very difficult time. We never pressure anyone or offer “today only” prices. We will work with you to offer the very best solution to meet your needs. Members of our business are based out of Westchester, Brooklyn and Queens New York. We are available to assist you 7 days a week.
