EasyLift cargo and beach house models are made to be lasting, durable, easy-to-use, and safe. Of course, that doesn’t mean that accidents are impossible; they’re largely preventable, but it’s always best to be prepared, anyway. In the event of a rare cargo lift accident, take the following steps, in addition to any others you feel necessary.
Stop the lift immediately.
Assuming the lift controls still work, stop the lift. You don’t want the lift to continue struggling, that would only make the situation worse, and possible cause a severe accident. Once you have stopped the lift, don’t fidget with those controls. Again, you may only make things worse for you and your lift. Instead, stop to inspect and see if you can safely locate the problem.
Don’t use or test the lift.
Once you stop the lift, leave it that way. Don’t try to turn it on and off, or restart it. Instead, perform a basic inspection. Look for easy-to-spot things like debris blocking moving parts, clearly-broken items, etc. If you attempt to fix anything, make sure that you know how to do so. Don’t attempt anything with which you’re not familiar.
