Small House Lifts

How to Make Life Easier With a Home Lift

If you’re a wheelchair user, or your mobility is impaired, small house lifts can be transformational. Besides offering extended mobility and enhanced independence, it also opens up the possibility of remaining in your home, even if you can no longer manage the stairs. More and more homeowners now enjoying the long-term advantages of installing a small house lift.

Developing technology means that the installation of small house lifts in the home is now something that more people than ever before are considering. The Tower Lifts team is one of the UK’s leading providers of home lifts, so our team are used to providing the guidance and information callers need. We thought we’d share with you the 5 questions we now get asked most regularly on this topic.

1. Does Your House Have to be Big Enough for a Lift Shaft?

Not at all! Lift technology has now developed to the point where lifts can be installed in virtually any property, whatever the size. Tower Lifts engineers create platform lift solutions that are compact and discrete whilst offering the speed and efficiency you’ll be familiar with from using standard lift technology. Platform lifts don’t require a lift shaft and come in a range of sizes.

2. Is a Stairlift a Small House Lift?

Yes, it is. We define a small house lift as any kind of vertical transport that supports enhanced mobility and access in your home. Whatever the shape and dimensions of your stairs, we will design the lift to fit it. We can create lifts that are designed to provide wheelchair users access using stairs, whether straight, curved or even spiral.

3. Can Domestic Lifts be Installed Outside?

Absolutely. If you are concerned that a home lift would dominate your living space, we can create external lifts for houses which utilise the outside wall of the property. This provides access to an upper floor, in the same way that any other home lift would, but it leaves your living space untouched by technology.

We regularly design and install step lifts to enhance mobility where there are short flights of steps leading up to a property, for example. We can also help with split level gardens or terraces.

4. How Much Do Small House Lifts Cost?

Innovative lift technology has made home lifts far more affordable, thanks to the ease of installation. The Tower Lift design team will assess your property and your requirements before quoting. This is because every lift we install is tailor-made to support the needs of clients. We understand that budgeting is important, which is why we offer fully transparent quotes which cover every aspect of the design and installation.

5. Is Lift Installation Going to be Disruptive?

It will involve Tower Lift engineers working in your home, and it may entail structural alterations. We understand how difficult it can be to have your home disrupted, so we offer detailed information in advance. Wherever possible, we work when clients are away on holiday, or visiting family. Otherwise, we’ll work with you to minimise the impact any disruption has on your household’s daily routine.
