In September of this year we had the good fortune to purchase a new wheelchair transport van from your company. This is just a note to let you know how pleased we were with our experience. Your knowledge and commitment to your products is truly impressive. Both the vehicle and the service have exceeded our expectations. In this day and age, good customer service is often difficult to find, and I feel it is important that it be recognized. Thank you for your commitment to good customer service and we look forward to working with you in the future.

My husband and I have been struggling recently and didn't know where to go to get the help we needed in order to adapt our vehicle. Since we first made contact with Advanced Modifications, everyone there, including the gentleman that worked on our car, has been fantastic! They even told us about financial assistance through a reimbursement program. I can't say enough about Gina and everyone at Advanced Modifications, they truly went above and beyond. I know we couldn't have done it without them.

I wanted to take a few moments today to send along a short note expressing my gratitude concerning the high quality of service we have received from your company in the last six months. WHCA has a fairly large, yet aging fleet of 8 twelve-passenger, 2- wheelchair equipped buses with Bruan lifts, and 2 low-floor wheelchair accessible mini-vans with Braun ramps. We operate 5 days a week 10 hours a day in a very large geographical area - Washington and Hancock counties.

When I started as Fleet Manager at WHCA in June, 2011, our entire fleet was in desperate need of lift overhauls and there was no existing preventive maintenance program set up here at WHCA. In an effort to remedy this, I contacted your office and was welcomed with expert advice, great rates, friendly attitudes and most importantly, a flexible work schedule.My

My goal was to have your company go through our entire fleet and bring our lifts up to the standards they should be at. Then, once that is completed, begin a preventive maintenance program that will insure 100% operational capability for our passengers and drivers. As our corrective maintenance schedule developed, I met your lift technician Brett Bowden, who was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. I watched very closely his work habits, job skills, and housekeeping abilities on a couple jobs, and I was immediately impressed by Brett's meticulous eye on details and system operations. As Brett worked on our buses electrical systems, he noticed something that was critical to passenger and driver safety, a short on the undercarriage wiring cables from the auxiliary battery to the lift. This positive hot wire coming from the battery was cracked and the insulation was worn down to just threads and rubbing on the bus frame - near the fuel tank. Sparks and fuel are not a good pair, and thanks to Brett's meticulous work habits, he noticed this and corrected the problem BEFORE a serious tragedy happened.

Brett doesn't do just the basics of a job; he goes above and beyond on any task assigned to him. He is open, honest, and if something doesn't look right, he will work on it until it is done right. I admire his strong, common sense work ethics and wanted to let you know that you are very fortunate to have someone like Brett working for you. He is an exemplary employee and I look forward with confidence knowing our preventive maintenance program is in such good hands.

gh3GH3 Lifting modules

Professional lifting and moving

The GH3 ceiling lift system is a state-of-the-art system for dealing with the full spectrum of demanding lifting and moving needs encountered in professional care environments.

This system has the big advantage that it is always ready for use – the lifting modules recharge while mounted on the rail. These lifting modules move near-silently using only a minimum of current. Transitions between rail sections are virtually unnoticeable, for maximum comfort.

Advanced digital systems provide numerous additional functionalities, including an integrated weighing system, service management and documentation for use.

All these capabilities combine to make the GH3 ceiling lift system the most cost-effective solution currently available for heavy-duty use in any professional care environment.

Can be used throughout

GH3 rails can be mounted on ceilings, walls or supporting pillars, with unsupported spans of up to 8 metres. Interconnecting elements make it easy to configure rail set-ups for virtually any building, space or requirements.

The discreet, modern design can be made to blend into any style of architecture, interior or décor – either in new structures or as a retrofit.
GH3 lifting modules can lift users weighing up to 350 kg with one lifting strap and 500 kg with two straps. Lifting speeds are up to 60 mm/sec.

gh1GH1 Lifting modules

Day-to-day lifting

The new GH1 ceiling lift system is designed to meet the full range of day-to-day lifting needs in private homes, sheltered housing and care homes. It takes up very little space, and is very easy to use with the full range of Guldmann lifting slings and other lifting accessories.

When and where needed

GH1 ceiling and wall-mounted rails are available for particular spans and lifting weights. There is also a free-standing rail system that’s ideal for here-and-now lifting needs, and can be set up – and taken down again – in only 10 minutes.

The GH1 lifting module quickly and safely lifts users weighing as much as 205 kg, operated by an easy-to-use hand control.

The lifting module is quickly recharged by placing the hand control in the GH1 recharging dock. A fully charged lifting module can cope with more than 55 lifts of 85 kg.

Both the GH1 lifting module and the rail systems blend easily into the décor of any space in which they are used. The lifting module is delivered with two different set of covers as standard.






gl5Guldmann mobile lifter

Go low, go high

The Guldmann mobile lifter range is designed for lifting and moving procedures based on lifting the user supported in one of a wide selection of appropriate slings.

This type of lifter is particularly suitable for use in unpredicted, less frequent or one-off lifting situations where there is no ceiling-mounted hoist, or where such Guldmann systems are impossible, impractical or simply not the most cost-effective solution.

Guldmann mobile lifters are used for lifting right from floor level and enable the carer to lift even a very tall user in a large sling, with a minimum of effort. They are ideal for high-priority situations where rapid, effective lifting is required, at the same time as ensuring that the carer is protected against any risk of strain or injury.
