Can I Install the lift myself?

For safety reasons, this is strongly discouraged. Improper installation can lead to accidents and serious injury. There are also local and national codes that dictate how and where a lift can be installed, and some of those codes require that the lift be installed by a licensed and trained technician. Installing the lift yourself to save money is not worth the risk of injury or serious code violations. Improper installation may void manufacturer’s warranties.

There is more information on the risks of buying vertical platform lifts and stairway chair lifts online.
