WHEELCHAIR LIFT SERVICE & REPAIR

Emergency Vehicle Specialist, Inc. is now a certified Wheelchair Lift Repair facility.

Call (301) 739-7973 or contact us online today at kimble.trucking@myactv.net to schedule your lift for service or repair.    We want to ensure that your equipment is safe and in good working condition. 

We inspect and service the following:

  • We will inspect the platform of the lift to make sure it is safe.  The platform of the lift should have a non-slippery surface and high guard panels.  These features will ensure stability of the lift and its user during the lifting/lowering process.   
  • Inspect the safety sensor placed under the platform to automatically stop the lift in case there is a certain obstruction in its path.
  • Inspect the emergency battery.
  • Inspect control buttons and cables and verify safety and performance.
  • Inspect safety belts that secure the wheelchair in case of unexpected jolts caused by power outages or malfunctions of the mechanism.
  • Inspect safety arms or rails with grab handles.
  • Inspect the emergency brake and the emergency stop button and safety switches to ensure they can be used every time the user needs to stop the lift during its transition – this way providing a sense of freedom and control.
  • Inspect automatic locking system (if equipped) to prevent the lift from operating until the doors are closed and locked.
  • Inspect wireless call station (if equipped).  This feature is faster and easier than a cell phone, alerting your caretakers in case of emergency.
  • Inspect key-lock controls  (if equipped) which allow only the person who has the key to operate the device.
  • Operate the lift from stowed position and back to stowed position.
  • Listen for abnormal noises (e.g., grinding, binding, etc.) as lift is operated.
  • Inspect platform fold axles and bearings for wear or damage and positive securement.  
  • Check for hydraulic leaks.
  • Remove pump cover and check fluids.
  • Inspect hydraulic hoses, fittings and connections for wear or leaks.
  • Inspect harness cables, wires, terminals and connections for securement or damage.
  • Inspect relays, fuses, circuit breakers and power switch for securement or damage.
  • Top off fluids as needed.
