Easylift beach house lifts are made to last. They are made to withstand their environments, including houses on beaches where there are risks of heavy winds and rain. Of course, that doesn’t mean your lift couldn’t use a little help once in a while; your lift is made to handle common strong weather, but it’s best to prepare for the uncommon strong weather, too.
Check with the Professionals
Before you make any plans to stabilize your lift with anything, you should read the manuals. Make sure there isn’t already something to help you in the event that the winds become stronger than normal. You should also speak with your installer, or your manufacturer. Ask for recommendations, and ask what you should and shouldn’t do for your lift.
Your cargo lift should be installed close enough to your house so that you may load and unload items easily. Because of that proximity, you may be able to strap the strongest, outermost parts of your lift to the house. Be very careful about this; if the wind is very strong, you don’t want the part of your house to which the lift is strapped to be damaged.
You can also stabilize the base of your lift. From the beginning, it should always be installed on stable, level ground. You may be able to set something heavy at the bottom, or may even be able to attach additional, angled posts to help secure everything.
Of course, you should never tamper with your lift’s secure installation without consulting the manual, installer, and the manufacturer. Whatever questions you have about your beach house lift, such as what to do in the event the weather is stronger than usual, just ask the experts of EasyLift. We’ll help you find the best model and understand how to care for it.
