A Shropshire lift company is the latest dealer to become a Premier Partner with home lifts manufacturer Stiltz Lifts, which sees the dealer taking full control of the purchase process, from marketing to sales and installation.
Belvidere Lifts, which was founded in 2002, has gained the highest level in the company’s three-tier dealer programme after installing its first domestic lift in a 17th century home in Shrewsbury.
Gino Farruggio, UK trade sales director for Stiltz Lifts, said the company was “delighted” to sign Belvidere Lifts up as a Stiltz Lifts Premier Partner.
“They carried out all the required training and have now successfully installed their first Stiltz Home Lift which is fantastic news.
“The team at Belvidere Lifts are very ambitious and they recognised that now is a great time to partner with Stiltz Lifts and reap the rewards of being a pioneer in the growth of the home lift market in this country.”
Stiltz Lifts offers three ways to partner with the company. A business can become a Referral Partner and receive a commission of up to £1,000 when it passes on an enquiry to the Stiltz sales team which results in a successful sale and installation.
Dealers can also move up to Affiliate Partner status where they have the opportunity to complete the sale with their customer.
Finally, a dealer can become a Premier Partner which enables them to take control of the purchase process from marketing to sales to installation.
This can be achieved by completing a free training course at the Stiltz Lifts HQ in Kingswinford, West Midlands.
Belvidere Lifts’ first installation saw a home lift fitted in a Grade-II listed cottage for customer Maurice Allen, who was having to ‘crawl’ up the stairs every night to reach his bedroom.
The property is more than 300 years old and had a very narrow turning spiral staircase, meaning a traditional stairlift would not fit.
The customer said the Stiltz Home Lift had “improved his quality of life immeasurably” and “had enabled him to get his independence back”.
