    This is my third year of using AVS Elevator service, l had my home in Salem Oregon built in 2006 and at that time had a different company install the elevator and do the yearly service but felt they were very expensive for a less than 20 minute service so l checked around and called AVS. I had them come out three years ago and check things out and perform the neccessary services, and was pleased with there promptness, courtesy and knowledge and have had them out now for each of the last three years. Great work from very qualified people. Keep up the good work guys and Thank You....

    AVS elevator, owned by Frank Stalen is a company I would recommend to anyone who is looking for excellent service and professional, thorough and straightforward elevator maintenance. He rescued my old elevator with care and provided a long range approach to maintenance.

    The AVS gentlemen helped us a tremendous amount in reducing the cost of our elevator. Frank and Dwayne came to our church and gave us a bid of about half the price of the company we had been dealing with. They also explained that the other company was overcharging us on battery maintenance ($600 for 15 minutes of labor and a $20 battery). AVS covers the same battery replacement in the maintenance agreement for free! Frank and Dwayne were courteous, helpful, and informative about reducing our costs to a minimum. If you want your elevator costs cut along with having a conscientious, owner-run business maintaining your elevator, then call AVS.

    Dear Frank I can’t thank you enough for the fine work you did getting our elevator going Up-n-Down. As you know, our church has been going through a number of trials, and seeing this project completed has been like seeing sunny skies after a long dark period. The signed maintenance agreement is enclosed and we have already had a surprise inspection from the state inspector! Your patience and professionalism is certainly amazing and much appreciated! I am glad you are overseeing the maintenance of the elevator!

    I needed help with my wheelchair lift immediately and didn’t know where to turn. I called several elevator companies but when Dwayne answered the phone at AVS and listened to my needs and asked important questions about the lift, I knew that this was the company that genuinely cared about my situation and its urgency. The very next morning, I had the owner of the company and an experienced and well seasoned technician getting my lift to work. What a relief! They worked with me to get the lowest cost option that fit my needs and took great care of me. Thanks you guys! you’re the best!

    AVS Elevator, It was a pleasure meeting you and your company President.  I have been so impressed with this elevator, the design, operation, fit, and finish.  I know this job site presented some challenges but the installation team at AVS Elevator was top notch and I am very impressed with their expertise and concern for a perfect fit and proper operation.  They were probably the "NEATEST" subcontractor on this home construction as well!  I am also comforted to know that service is nearby if I should ever need assistance.  As I mentioned, my previous experience with a home elevator was on an island in the Puget Sound and service was a ferry ride away (and many hours) so I am much more comfortable knowing support is minutes away. Again, my sincere thanks as we are so very grateful for the gate/track modifications that will allow us to get Rick’s power chair into our New Elevator.  As I mentioned, this is a significant improvement over our first elevator and we recognized it right away. The final modifications to ensure the maximum entrance width for my husband’s Permobil wheelchair will make all the difference for us!

    Dear Frank, We are so pleased with the work Dennis did on our “vintage” lift yesterday, and with the great service and super-fast turn-around from your company. Impressive indeed! Thanks again for a great job!

    I wanted to thank you for the time you spent today on the stairlift. We are both very impressed with the level of personalized service and after care that you provide. Everyone that worked on the stairs and lift have been really professional and friendly, and my mum is really pleased with the results.

    We have really enjoyed the new stair lift. Your crew was professional, efficient and fast. Thanks for all that you did to make it all happen so quickly. Use of the New Outdoor Stairlift in this wonderful fall weather has allowed to continue gardening.

Why Get a Home Elevator System

Most of the residential clients we serve sometimes experience concerns that getting a lift into their home might end up devaluing their property. Others might worry that the elevator will make it difficult to sell the home in the future – should such a need arise.

However, we are here to inform you that all these fears have no grounding. In fact, the opposite couldn’t be truer. With a proper elevator in your home, you will not only open up the entire space for all its current residents looking for mobility assistance, it will also add to the overall value of your home.

Varieties of Home Elevator Systems

At this company, we only provide the highest quality systems because we source them from the Inclinator Company of America, Inc. Located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, this company only offers locally made products. You can learn more about the company here.

The availability of adequate space in your property is the first consideration we will make while helping you choose the right lift and the type of residential elevator installation we will perform.

If space isn’t much of an issue, we would suggest that you get the Roped Hydraulic System. This way, the hydraulic power unit would have its own separate space.

However, if the space in your home is a bit limited, we normally recommend the Cable Drive System.

a) Roped Hydraulic Systems

In the rope hydraulic system, the hydraulic cylinder is located above ground to improve the reliability of the lift and protect the entire system from corrosion and oil leaks. This type of lift comes with a vibration-free power unit located apart from the hoist way.

This system is also great because it is easily accessible. It also minimizes noise when the lift is in operation. As such, it isn’t surprising that the Elevette® Hydraulic lifts we install are such a rave among owners of large homes.

b) ​Cable Drive Systems

If space is an issue, AVS Elevator will install a cable drive system. Created by the Inclinator Company of America, Inc., this type of lift reduces the amount of space required. It will also eliminate the need for a separate machine room.

Cable drive systems are particularly useful in coastal flood zones. It also comes with great safety features than most of the other cable-drive elevator systems found in the market today.

With the Elevette® Cable Drum system, you get compactness, quiet operation, and accommodation for a maximum of 6 landings.

We also install the Elevette® MRL Overhead Cable Drum. With this system, you get a quiet and smooth ride. It works best for homes with split levels.
