ESCORTA goods lift for self storage facility in UK

2015 | United Kingdom

For over 100 years, the Mason family has been looking after homes and businesses throughout Wales, and is a trusted and respected name in the removals and storage industry. Masons Self Storage Ltd. provides secure, flexible, long/short term storage in South Wales with 24-hour access at the best price.

For over 25 years the Mason family has been offering Self Storage facilities. Up till now it was necessary to carry furniture and boxes up and down stairs. The Mason family was aware of this problematic issue and searched for a solution, which would avoid this dreaded task. Masons Self Storage Ltd. took their customers to a higher level of comfort by making one simple change: installing Lödige’s ESCORTA lift on their premises. The whole package deal was so convincing that Masons decided to order two lifts right away.

Made to order: The ESCORTA lift design was customised for optimal integration in Masons Self Storage facility to carry goods and passengers up to a second-floor level. In addition to the customer benefits, Masons saved a substantial amount of money by choosing this free-standing shaft structure that does not require an additional motor room or pit.
