Tips for Making Sure the Beach House Cargo Lift You Purchase is the Right One

  1. Buy from an established manufacturer and know their history. Metal shop reality TV has made welding a popular hobby in recent years. All too often hobbyist welders see a metal product they can duplicate and figure they can get into the manufacturing biz. This is bad for consumers because these garage mini-factories rarely last, and rarely have adequate quality control in place.


  1. Ask to see engineering drawings with a raised seal from a reputable third party structural engineer, and know what they are certifying. As a cargo lift buyer, you should be concerned about whether the lift you are buying meets the specifications as advertised. Any reputable manufacturer will have already had an engineer who is separate from their firm review their design and place their raised seal on the plans. One reason for this is to validate the capacity of the lift the manufacturer is advertising it is capable of. Another reason is to confirm it will meet windstorm criteria. Both of these points must be in writing on the stamped drawings for you to know you are getting what you are paying for. If you are buying a lift advertised as 1000lb capacity and it doesn’t say that on the plans, you can bet the manufacturer had some less critical aspect of the lift evaluated in an attempt to trick unwitting clients. I will stress again that engineers specialize in different things. This is a structural engineer application. Be wary of plans stamped by civil engineers, electrical engineers, , and also by in house engineers who are employed by the manufacturer.


  1. Get a copy of the manufacturer’s insurance certificate. Homeowners often ask the contractors doing the installation for proof of insurance, but the lift manufacturers proof of insurance is often ignored.


  1. Verify your lift is made by whom the contractor says it is. Knocking off a product and then “passing off” as a name brand is common and illegal. Ask you lift manufacturer for ways to identify whether your lift is genuine.


  1. Speak directly to the lift manufacturer when making your choice. Installation contractors are often more concerned with making the right choice for themselves, not you. Most of the time, an installer will put in the lift of your choice regardless of whether they have a bias towards one or the other if you find a lift manufacturer you like ask them to recommend an installer in your area.

The Benefits of Installing a Cargo Lift for your Beach House

Upandown Industries knows the struggles that come with owning a beach house. These homes are built very high above sea level to prevent damage to your home during storms, but as a result, you now have many stairs to climb. Navigating these stairs with bulky or heavy items can be extremely difficult, so we created our beach house cargo lifts to solve this issue. Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy when you install a Veranda ‘Vator in your home.

Improve Safety

Carrying things up and down the stairs can be dangerous. If the item is particularly bulky, it can block your line of sight and cause you to miss a step and fall. Heavy items can cause damage to your back and increase your risk of falls as well. With a cargo lift from our company, you eliminate the risk of carrying items up and down your stairs. Don’t injure yourself trying to get items in and out of your home – get a cargo lift instead.

Increase Efficiency

There is only so much that one person can carry, meaning you may have to make multiple trips to get your items in and out of your home. With a cargo lift, you can get the job done in one trip – and you don’t even have to do the heavy lifting on your own. Our cargo lifts can carry up to 1,000lbs so that you can transport your items more efficiently.
