Affordable Lifts was created when two brothers came together to address a need within their own family.
Jeanne, pictured below, desired to age at home, but she was losing strength. Cancer treatments soon exacerbated the concern. Leaving home for medical appointments and church was increasingly difficult and unsafe.
Her family began looking into solutions for her home, but the costs were shocking! Even a wheelchair ramp cost several thousand dollars, and her home did not have the space for such a ramp. Jean did not need all of the bells and whistles. She needed something simple, safe and affordable. After weeks of research, it appeared that there was nothing affordable on the market.
So, the two brothers collaborated to solve this gap in the market. If they couldn't find it, they would make it! The first lift was built in one brother’s backyard in Lynchburg, VA. Pleased with the simplicity of design and affordable price point, they planned initially to produce only a few a week, but demand grew quickly!
It wasn't long before they outgrew the backyard and moved into a nearby manufacturing facility, where they grew from a side project on the weekends to a full-time manufacturing business shipping globally. Today, Affordable Lifts continues to grow, seeking to help other families and to make this world a better and more accessible place.
These lifts are designed and assembled with care and pride right here in the U.S.A.
