Temporary residential elevators: residential lift rental for owner's and housing associations.

Residential lift rental: threshold-free from pavement to front door

Due to the shrinking healthcare industry, elderly and disabled people increasingly stay longer in their own flat. These residents are dependent on threshold-free passenger lifts to do their groceries, meet up with their friends, or walk their dogs. Because all lifts are out of order sometimes because of malfunctions or maintenance, you can rent a temporary residential elevator at RECO Lift Solutions. This way, emergency services such as ambulance staff can use a suitable lift in case of emergencies. For housing and owner's associations, we offer special rental contracts for long term maintenance planning. Using Europe’s biggest range of temporary residential lifts, we’ve got a suitable temporary passenger lift for every flat or tower block.

Temporary residential elevator: passenger lift, platform lift, or stair lift?

During minor lift maintenance caused by an emergency, we regularly rent stair lifts in the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Germany. Does it concern a small height of max 3 metres? Platform lifts are often the quicker solution then. Thanks to their easy installation, stair and platform lifts are excellent lifts to rent during emergencies. During longer maintenance periods and apartment blocks with 4 storeys or more, we recommend renting a temporary residential lift. Need help with your decision?

Lift renovation in inhabited building: Cliostede

In 2019 the Cliostreet housing complex in Eindhoven consisting of 140 properties and 7 indoor passenger lifts was being renovated. Although the renovation was necessary, the idea was of course to keep disturbances to the residents to a minimum.

As there was no walkway available, it seemed like we needed to replace every indoor lift with a temporary lift. However, by installing temporary walkways we could compensate for the lift capacity of two indoor lifts with one single temporary passenger lift. This meant we only needed to deploy two lifts simultaneously instead of four, while the residents stayed mobile. Read more about Cliostede here

Multiannual maintenance plan

All passenger lifts require maintenance and need to be renovated at some point. When your long term maintenance planning indicates it’s time for maintenance again, your can rent temporary residential elevators to keep your residents mobile. To keep your multiannual maintenance budget sharp, we like to think along from the early stages about scheduled lift maintenance. 

For housing and owner’s associations, we offer multiannual rental agreements which you can implement into your maintenance planning. Are you dealing with a malfunction of our temporary residential lift? Our breakdown service is available 24 hours a day.
