Home lifts - Level Access Lifts

What is a home lift?

A home lift is a type of lift that can easily be installed into your home to help people move around between floors. Home lifts are typically used by the elderly, those with limited mobility, those who require a wheelchair, or those whose homes have multiple floors. They are also extremely useful or the movement of items such as luggage, laundry baskets etc.

In comparison to stairlifts, home lifts share some of their DNA with the more luxurious lifts that you find in hotels, offices etc. These types of lifts are built with a spacious interior, allowing individuals to enter and exit seamlessly.

For those using mobility aids or wheelchairs, home lifts provide a newfound independence. If relying on assistance from loved ones or facing stairs alone is a concern, home lifts are a practical and trusty solution.

How much does it cost to install a home lift?

The total cost of home lifts – covering manufacturing, delivery, and installation – typically falls between £16,000 and £60,000. Prices will vary based on additional features or specific demands like platform sizes, building work needs, number of doors, and finishes.

Every home lift installation is unique. If you need a basic model, it’ll be on the lower end of the scale, but if your installation is complex and requires a bespoke service, expect to invest more towards the higher end.

Do you need planning permission to install a home lift?

Whether you need planning permission for a home lift depends on your situation and the type of lift you choose.

If you are altering the structural integrity of the building (e.g. cutting a whole in the floor for the lift to pass through) then you will need to apply to your Building Control Dept. who will guide, you through the steps you need to take. You should check with your local planning authority before commencing work of this type.

What are the best home lifts?

Home lifts come in all shapes and sizes – from elegant, enclosed options with customisable and high-tech features to compact to traditional through floor lifts.

Swift Pro is a premium home lift with dynamic features and personalised settings, offering a high-class and stylish option. The Swift Lite is equally as modern, whilst also being cost-conscious. It boasts impressive features including an EcoDrive, WiFi remote control options, and LED side lights.

If you’re looking for something simpler, a British Style Platform Lift is a reliable choice that can travel up to 7 metres and is available in bespoke platform sizes.

Alternatively, a platform stairlift could be another option for those who don’t have space for a home lift (assuming your stairs are wide enough). You could choose an Ascendor Platform Stairlift, which runs on stainless steel guide tubes and continually charged batteries, making it a reliable choice.
