Lödige ESCORTA® lift: Game-changer for UK self-storage facility
Hauling heavy, unwieldy furniture and boxes up and down stairs is not a favorite pastime for most People / Now this dreaded task is a thing of the past - at least for customers of Masons Self Storage in South Wales
Because it is certified to carry goods and occupants, customers can simply slide their cargo into the ESCORTA® lift, step in and ride up to their storage room level in comfort. The Lödige solution has turned what was once an issue at Masons Self Storage into one of the company’s most compelling selling points.
“The ESCORTA® lift has changed our business enormously by attracting more customers due to the fact that they no longer have to carry their goods upstairs,” says Masons Self Storage Ltd. CEO Gordon Mason, who also purchased a second “goods only”, SHERPA® lift.
With over 100 years of experience in the industry, the Mason family knows how important it is to stay ahead of the game and continuously offer their customers leading edge products and services. So installing multiple lifts on their premises to make their customers’ self-storage experience more pleasant and comfortable became an obvious next step. The challenge was to find a solution that would meet all their specific needs which could also be installed easily and quickly to ensure minimal disruption of their day-to-day business.
After comparing various options and suppliers, Masons chose Lödige as their partner to revamp the transport features in their self-storage facility. “I was immediately impressed by the engineering of the lifts, the simplicity of their operation and the flexibility of integration in our site. The extremely competitive price for this turnkey package solution certainly didn’t hurt either,” says Mason.
Lödige a perfect fit for self-storage business
The Lödige ESCORTA® lift for goods and occupants proved to be the ideal fit for Masons Self Storage by offering the right mix of benefits. The free-standing shaft structure can be easily integrated into existing buildings and does not require any special civil or building works, a separate machine room or a pit. This flexibility extends to its design, which is dictated by what it will be used for, resulting in custom-made lifts that meet the most individual of customer needs. After a start-to-finish installation time of just five days, this robust, reliable lift was ready for Masons’ customers and their goods, turning transport within the self-storage facility into a breeze.
“Lödige is committed to delivering innovative lift solutions that make a significant impact on our customer’s business. Our flexible, top quality products proved to be a game-changer for Masons Self Storage, and we look forward to being their trusted partner for the long haul,” says Michael Baul, Managing Director, Lödige (United Kingdom) Ltd..
With over 60 years of experience and expertise, Lödige Industries offer customized turnkey lift solutions at attractive prices. Thanks to their flexibility, the systems can be installed in many different types of buildings to facilitate in-house transport. And now the ESCORTA® lift is leading the way to take customer service at self-storage facilities to the next level.
