COVID 19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – COVID-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. The Stiltz Group continue to review activities on a daily basis to ensure we comply with safety directives at all times. At the same time, we look to balance this with providing the expected levels of service and support to our customers while being mindful of minimising risk for all concerned.

We are acutely aware that our customers tend to fall into higher risk categories, whether due to age, or as a result of pre-existing medical conditions. Therefore it is all the more important for our current and future customers to maintain their safety and independence at home with the help of their homelifts; this contributes towards the current policy of social distancing, especially important for seniors and those with compromised immune systems. Reduction of accidents within the home at this time will also help minimize the burden on the increasingly stressed healthcare system.

We are keen to ensure those who need new homelifts installed and those who require their lifts to be serviced, can expect these activities to take place without fear of risk to their health. There are multiple online resources that will guide you to assist in providing a safe workplace for your employees and help protect the customers whose home you visit. Two we would recommend are:

OSHA - click here to visit

We are in this together and are standing by to offer you as much support as possible during this challenging time. If you have any questions, concerns or doubts about anything, please contact your territory manager or the technical services team and we will do our best to assist.

Sincerely

Mark Blomfield

President

A conversation we sometimes have with our customers revolves around the purchase of home elevators from online suppliers.  Occasionally they point out that the cost is less than the quote they have had for a Stiltz Home Elevator.

However, pricing quoted by online sellers has to be looked at in detail.  Remember, there is much more to consider than just the cost of the residential elevator itself.

Does the price include shipping?  This can easily be in excess of $1,000.  Also, the crates will be extremely heavy and cumbersome so you will need plenty of help when the elevator lift is delivered. It is not your standard UPS delivery!

Also, does the price include installation?  A regular hydraulic elevator can take three to four days for two people to install so remember to factor that cost in too.

Always make sure that the people carrying out the installation are factory trained.  Safety is paramount with the installation of a residential elevator and simply being ‘quite technical’ does not even come close to what is needed to install one.

The other cost that is often forgotten when people shop for home elevators is the construction.  Building a hoist way, or shaft, can easily add $10,000 to $15,000 to the cost of a two-story installation and take several weeks to complete.

In summary, the great bargain you think you found turns out to be more than twice the cost, perhaps over $35,000, and involves several weeks of disruption.

Because the Stiltz Home Elevators has a self-supporting system and, does not require a hoist way to be built, they avoid both the disruption and cost that a traditional elevator project requires.

In any retrofit situation, a Stiltz residential elevator will work out to be a significantly lower cost option yet offer you the same benefits of other products and more.

The smaller footprint of our elevator will also mean you give up less space in your home and the self-supporting system eliminates the need for a structural wall. With no hydraulics, our elevator is run off a standard outlet using a regular 110v or 220v supply, and is very economical to operate and service too.
