FAQ’s

How much do Wheelchair Lifts cost?

There are many different wheelchair lifts on the market today, including inclined lifts that travel on a rail and are fitted alongside an existing staircase, and vertical lifts that resemble elevators but are not enclosed.

Besides the type of lift, basic lift mechanism and non-slip platform, several other factors determine the cost, including:

  • size and configuration of stairs
  • height and weight capacity requirements
  • preparation of the landing area
  • installation

Here at Level Access Lifts, we prefer to give our customers a full assessment and quotation as the price range is so variable. If you would like a quote for one of our wheelchair lifts – including installation – please don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can either email your requirements and measurements to info@levellifts.co.uk, submit an online enquiry or call 023 8081 4924, and our team will gladly share their expertise and offer a great price.

How do you maintain a Wheelchair Lift?

Installing a wheelchair lift requires a little preparation but, if done correctly and well-maintained, will operate for many years to come. Once installed, we will service and check your lift for excessive wear and tear every twelve months.

When you invest in a wheelchair lift for your home or business, you should be provided with a guide which entails details on how you use it, how much maintenance it requires and what you need to do. Make sure you keep hold of this and take the time to learn the best practices for maintaining a wheelchair lift.

All our lifts come with 12-months parts and labour warranty (including servicing) as standard. But that’s not to say you shouldn’t keep an eye out for loose bolts, worn treads and poor electrical connections yourself, as these need to be tightly fastened and fitted correctly to ensure safe operation.

Our best advice would be to treat your wheelchair lift as you would a car. These lifts are mechanical and, from time to time, parts may need lubricating or adjusting by one of our experienced service engineers. Some parts might even need replacing.

We also recommend that – if you’re to ensure the longevity of the lift – you only use it for its intended purpose. Otherwise, it’s more susceptible to damage (both seen and unseen).

How to choose a Wheelchair Lift

Wheelchair users can experience difficulty when going about their everyday lives. One of the most frustrating things they face is limited access, usually due to the stairs. However, a wheelchair lift is one of the safest – most comfortable – ways to move someone with mobility issues between floors in a home or other multi-storey buildings.

These lifts are available in an assortment of styles, but how do you know which is right for you?

Four factors to consider:

  1. Available space – wheelchair lifts can be installed inside and outside (depending on the size of your property and personal requirements). But they take up a lot of space, so you need to choose one that is suitable for the area.
  2. Type of lift – from platform lifts that transport passengers quickly and safely between varying heights to wheelchair lifts for stairs (or inclined platform stairlifts) that transfer both the wheelchair user and their chair in one go. We have something for everyone.
  3. Longevity – a wheelchair lift is supposed to be a lifetime investment – one that you can rely on for years to come. Be sure to check the maximum capacity it can hold and only purchase from a reputable manufacturer with excellent reviews (like us at Level Access Lifts!).
  4. Lift features – you might prefer a lift that operates quietly. Or perhaps you consider yourself a technophobe and want a wheelchair lift that’s simple to use. Whatever it may be, it pays to look carefully at a lift’s technical details and features.

How does a wheelchair lift work?

For the most part, platform lifts all work in a similar way. Usually relying on a motor, as well a particular drive type, platform lifts most commonly work on a Hydraulic, Screw & Nut or Traction and Chain drive.

Wheelchair lifts, although designed to serve a very specific purpose, are simply another type of platform lift. We supply a range of different wheelchair lifts for home, and commercial use as well as outdoor wheelchair lifts, and depending on the particular application can determine the technology used.

To ensure each type of wheelchair lift we produce fits the needs of the user, we encourage customers to explore our range of wheelchair lifts below, or to get in touch directly to discuss your specific requirements.
