Specialist Lifts and Services


Shorts don’t only supply lift equipment, we are also a support service to your lift installation, repair and service business.

We have been providing support services to the UK and Irish Lift Industries for over 70 years. We never deal with builders, contractors or clients… only the Lift Trade.

Our package of services allow you to forget about the odd specialist lift product that may crop up every now and then and allow you to focus on the areas of the business that you know best.

The support stretches across all of our Complete Lift products and extends from site surveys at the start of a project through testing and putting into service at the end.
