Inspecting with integrity to a higher standard

Cargo/Personnel Lift Inspection

A residual cargo or personnel lift is a house addition which can be installed in a variety of settings and can be customized to fit a homeowner’s needs. These structures can be found at two and three-story elevated homes on the coast, to those in the mountains, and even to barns. One common problem seen with cargo/ personnel lifts is that many people DIY these structures, or install the components themselves, which raises the threat of safety and compliance.


Our general visual cargo/ personnel lift inspection includes photos and a written narrative about any defects and deficiencies observed at the time of the inspection.


What we inspect on these types of lifts include but are not limited to:


  • Visual inspection of overall condition of welds and structure
  • Visual inspection of proper installation of manufacturer installation instructions, if available
  • Visual inspection of support cables and pullies
  • Visible components of electric systems and drive motors
  • Visual inspection of safety features to verify they are installed and operational
