  1. Pete Gunnell (verified owner)

    Not happy with the squealing noise when lowering the lift. For the price of the unit and since it’s a well known issue, I would think you’d include a container of bearing grease and provide some instruction on how to address the problem in the assembly/installation documents. As it is it makes the noise an unhappy discovery after installation. That’s kind of cheesy. Some transparency up front would have been good.

  5. Bryant Baker (verified owner)

    Prior to purchasing the lift, I had sent a question via the Aladdin web site asking about contractors who have installed your products in my area, and I got no response. Specifically, even if you didn’t have any contractors in my area, you should respond to questions from potential customers, so I felt that my purchase was riskier than necessary – “if I don’t get a response from the company now, how’s it going to be after I purchase their product?”

    Fortunately, that was not the case. Overall the phone support during the install was outstanding, Aladdin should continue this phone-a-friend process and level of availability.

    Since I just completed the installation, I have only insignificant comments regarding the product operation (ASL-500) itself. I do know that 7A buss fuses are very hard to come by, I would recommend reassessing that component towards providing a more common part in case the fuse blows (like it happened to us during the install). Also, the cable squeals during operation thus far is unsettling, but I’ve been assured that will go away with use.

      Bryant, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review.

    Great lift much better than Versalift that has A frame limiting load height. Aladdin is only limited by height of attic.

  9. Richard Beverburg (verified owner)

    Love the fact that the only limit to load height is the height of attic space. Much better than your competition. Would like to see enhanced upper lower limit switches so could be activated from both levels.

    Great product! My HVAC guys were the first to use it and couldn’t say enough good. My staff is excited about not having to haul full bankers boxes up the stairs and I am excited about the safety of not hauling boxes up the stairs.

    We’re still waiting for our contractor to finish the garage attic and then we can install it. However, looking over the instructions and the engineering of the lift, I see no reason we won’t be extremely satisfied.

      Mary, thank you for your review!

  21. Anonymous

    I submitted my measurements on 3 occasions and they still sent a lift for a 2×8 joist. In our area, 2×6 is standard in nearly every home. This should have been an option or better communication.

  22. Jeffrey Osmun (verified owner)

    Wish the lift worked a little faster.

    • ASL Customer Service

      Jeffrey,

      The speed is dictated by our ETL safety listing. We have inquired about speeding the lift up, but we would lose our safety certification.

    I have owned the Aladdin lift system for about a year and it has to be one of the best lifts on the market. I was skeptical using this product since it isn’t as well known to the market as the very commercialized brands but I took the plunge and it was well worth it. The amount of “stuff” you can throw on this lift is amazing.. No more multiple trips to the attic and back down. We can put all of our Christmas gear, tree and all at one time. Great product and will put one in our new house we are building…

    Lift is noisy. The cables and rollers sound as if lift is broken or straining, but there is no binding or reason for noise that I can determine. Cables don’t always roll up evenly and it’s not predictable which will be lower, higher, etc. However, the lift does move stuff as advertised. No issues with getting job done…….just a little clunky.

    I love this product however there is a very loud screeching when it lowers that I can‰Ûªt seem to find or fix. Sounds like metal on metal but I can‰Ûªt figure out where. I did have a control board go bad (soldering came apart) but you sent a replacement right away so I can‰Ûªt be happier with your service

  36. Aladdin Storage Lift Owner (verified owner)

    Aladdin lift is a unique product. I looked long and hard to find a lift suited for our house with two spiral staircases. You saved my life during an expensive remodeling effort as we moved heavy furniture to the second level. Keep up the good product!

    My contractor framed the opening during construction. Over about two weeks during the evenings after work I worked on installing the lift not too hard would install another one if I ever have to build a house again.

    Love everything about this lift with two exceptions. 1) my contractor did an amazing job “finishing” the bottom of the lift. Your design almost made me not buy it. Even your promo youtube video shows a saggy 1/4″ plywood. We redesigned and it looks great. Second issue: the metal on metal gears SCREEM at me and I’m my neighbors. I have to have a grease gun ready to apply grease to gears after every couple uses. So, other than those two issues, its great and glad i bought.

    I’ve had my lift for about 18 months; in that time, I’ve had to replace the fuse which is housed under a sheet metal cover several times. I finally left this sheet metal cover off due to the difficulty of reinstalling it each time. With Aladdin’s’ help and the help of an electrician who was on the phone with Aladdin representatives, I think the fuse issue is resolved. Time will tell. l love the lift when it works properly. My problem may have been more with the installer than with the lift. Again, time will tell.

    Being a .union crane operator from Chicago for 40 years, I wasn’t expecting to much from this attic lift, man was I wrong. I installed the lift myself with no problems at all, well built, the welds were perfect, the drums were grooved so the cables wrapped on them perfect, quiet motor, I can not find anything I would change in the design.I actually called the Aladdin office and complimented them on their attic lift. I know a good piece of lifting equipment, and you boys have designed and produced a nice unit.

    Two improvements that would get it to five stars. 1. Send lift with a bottle of aluminum grease for the main gear. Too sqeaky on initial install. A $5 bottle of trease and a page in instructions would eliminate this issue. 2. A different material other than the included springs for the cosmetic skirt would be appropriate. The springs do not do a good job of self centering the skirt. Thus the skirt frame.can get in the way of the load frame. Causing a spring to bend which makes the problem even worse. High quality shock cord corner to corner is a much more reliable solution I have found

    Maintains/servicing cables? Is is best to periodically lubricate the cables with WD 40. Also the grease fitting were not greased when the unit was delivered

  84. Aladdin Storage Lift Owner

    Look at safety limit switch. Since there is play in the system it can fail. A problem we had. Otherwise highly recommend.

  85. Aladdin Storage Lift Owner (verified owner)

    I love my lift! I wish there was a remote control to work it rather than just the wall control so I can send it up or down while I am down and my husband is up and vice versa without having to comedown the ladder to operate the control….my husband doesn’t want to operate the control….scared he will mess it up!

  86. Aladdin Storage Lift Owner (verified owner)

    My builder framed the joist opening, but wouldn’t install. Feared liability. I installed myself. Only comment is that I wish I instructions had been more clear about necessary clearance for motor mechanism. And, an upright configuration would have been better, to allow placement closer to a wall/room edge. Otherwise, it is great. We moved in 4 months after my back surgery, and I could never have moved all my ‘stuff’ up to storage without the lift!
