What is a moving lift?

A moving lift, also known as a ladder lift or furniture elevator, is a lift that is used to lift large, heavy or large numbers of things up or down. Instead of having to walk up and down the stairs endlessly with unmanageable cargo, a furniture elevator can also be used. This means that all items up to 400KG and up to the 12th floor (34 meters) can be brought down or up without difficulty with the moving lift and, if necessary, they can be brought up again just as easily with the moving lift at the new location.

What's the difference between a moving lift and a furniture lift?

There are many names for this elevator; we call it a moving lift. Other names are furniture elevator and ladder lift, there is no real difference. What is important is whether it concerns a lift mounted on a car like ours or a so-called trailing lift.

The trailing suction lift is a kind of trailer with the lift installation on it, the objection of this is that the lift can never have the stability compared to a fixed moving lift and that the set-up and breakdown times are significantly longer. This in turn leads to the rent being unnecessarily higher.
