Lift installation is a process that requires careful planning and execution. First, the area where the lift will be installed must be prepared. This includes removing any obstacles that could impede the lift’s progress, such as furniture or flooring. Next, the lift itself must be assembled and properly secured in place. The final step is to connect the lift to the power source and test it to ensure that it is functioning correctly. Lift installation is a complex task, but it is essential for ensuring that the lift is safe and operational. With careful planning and execution, the process can be completed successfully.

Benefits of Having a Lift Installation

Installing a lift in a building can provide numerous benefits for your home, property or business.

Lifts can allow or increase accessibility for those with mobility impairments, elderly individuals, and those with heavy loads by making it easier to move between floors. Lifts can also be more convenient than stairs, especially in multi-story buildings.

Installing a lift can also increase the value of a building and make it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants. In addition, lifts can improve safety by reducing the risk of falls and injuries associated with using stairs. They can also be incorporated into the design of a building at the planning stage, allowing for greater flexibility and creativity in building design.

Finally, modern lifts are energy-efficient, making them a more environmentally friendly transportation option.

To break it down:

  • Increased accessibility: Lifts can make it easier for people with mobility impairments, elderly individuals, and those with heavy loads to move between floors.
  • Convenience: Lifts can save time and effort when compared to using stairs, especially in buildings with multiple floors.
  • Enhanced property value: Installing a lift can increase the value of a building, as it can make it more attractive to potential buyers or tenants who may have mobility issues.
  • Improved safety: Lifts can reduce the risk of falls and injuries associated with using stairs, especially for those who may have difficulty navigating stairs due to mobility impairments.
  • Greater design flexibility: Lifts can be incorporated into the design of a building at the planning stage, allowing for greater flexibility and creativity in building design.
  • Energy efficiency: Modern lifts are designed to be energy-efficient, making them a more environmentally friendly transportation option.

How Much Does a Lift Installation Cost?

The cost of a lift installation varies on a few different factors. First of all, each type of lift requires different procedures and specialities, some of these are more complicated and come at greater costs. Another factor is the size and capacity of a lift. Spacious lifts that have greater carrying capacities are more expensive when compared to the average-sized lift. Additionally, buildings with a more complex structure can make for incredibly complicated lift installations which of course, increases the cost of a project.

What Types of Lifts do we Install?

Throughout our years of lift installations, inspections and maintenance, we’ve worked within a variety of industries, installing and maintaining all types of lifts. Some of the lifts we’ve worked on include:

Passenger Lifts

The most common type of lift, passenger lifts are used to transport people from floor to floor. Nowadays, passenger lifts are used in all sorts of buildings throughout every industry and are seen as the standard type of lift.

Platform Lifts

Platform lifts are used to add or increase accessibility in buildings. Nowadays, platform lifts can be a legal requirement if ramps and other forms of accessibility can’t be installed. Typically, platform lifts are small in size and are just large enough to accommodate a wheelchair.

Service Lifts

Typically used in commercial and industrial buildings, service lifts are designed to carry heavy loads that help businesses carry out everyday operations more efficiently. If it’s cargo that needs transporting from floor to floor, it’s service lifts that’ll do the job.

Glass Lifts

Glass lifts are just another form of passenger lifts. As the name suggests, glass lifts feature large panes of tempered glass that make for a nicer, more aesthetic-looking lift compared to your average steel passenger lift.

Car Lifts

Making use of any vertical space within a parking lot or garage, car lifts are designed to carry the heavy weight of a vehicle and unlike their name suggests, car lifts are built to accommodate vans and heavier vehicles as well as cars.


Traditionally used in restaurants, dumbwaiters are small lifts that are used to transport small items from floor to floor.
