DriverLift™ – Rideable Vehicle Lift! 

The DriverLift™ is a rideable vehicle lift from Wildeck™ designed to safely and efficiently move vehicles between levels with their owners. No more climbing up stairs to catch up with your car on a material only lift. The DriverLift™ allows authorized personnel to travel with their vehicles on the carriage, instead of relying on someone else to offload their cargo.
