Lifts in the home and garden can make all the difference and may mean that you can stay in your existing home when access becomes an issue. Not forgetting our beloved pets who grow old too!
If the thought of stairlift makes you upset with the prospect of ruining your beautiful staircase, a practical alternative is to install a small domestic lift. If space is at a premium in your home we can install your home lift within an area as a small cupboard or in a stairwell. We have installed concealed lifts in cupboards to match the existing landing doors so it does not on first appearance look as if there is a lift there at all. This option assists in not only getting you from one level to another but can be used for other things – such as putting your suitcases inside when going on holiday or even transporting shopping and other goods from the garage or basement to the ground and upper floors. A home lift is a really good way of future-proofing your house as well as really adding value to your home.
We can install within most stairwells and staircases with little disruption to you or your home. The lift is installed within in its own shaft with or without glazing; and it needs either a small pit of 50mm or a small ramp. It can be painted in a colour to suit your décor and we offer a wide range of styles and finishes so there is always the right style to suit your taste and your home. The wide range of styles and finishes makes this option very versatile, in turn this allows the customer’s vision to really take centre stage.

Outdoor Home & Garden Lifts
If space cannot be found within a house or building then an external structure can be built either to the side of the house or fixed directly to the house. This is a simple solution for existing properties that do not have the space inside as well as those properties that are built on steep inclines where a traditional lift could not be used. Those lifts that are not directly fitted to the side of the house or building can have a small walk way into the property as seen alongside. These external lifts can be designed and made to bespoke specifications to suit the facade of the property with a number of finishes to choose from. To find our more information about our external home lifts check out our projects in Powys and Branksome Park.
When the steps or path up to your home become difficult, you can take a lift. We can offer lots of options for garden lifts, whether it be for one person or to carry the shopping to the front door. Our garden lifts can be installed anywhere; there is no maximum length of travel. Most stairways can be accommodated to suit all types of bends. If you have a small change of level, say a couple of steps, for getting in and out of the front door, we have small short rise lifts which can be matched with your slabs.
We can install a simple seated garden lift system; the maximum travel for these lifts is 25 metres so most gardens are catered for the rail; the seat is specially coated for outside use and even comes with a cover to keep the leaves off and the seat nice and dry. For added security it has a key lock and remote controls for multiple use.
We can install a home platform lift with a seat if needed to take you in your wheelchair up effortlessly to your destination. Alternatively you can be seated and take your shopping on the platform floor. Everything is specially coated for outside use and comes with a cover to keep it debris free. All our garden lifts are IP65 waterproof rated. The longest garden to front door lift system we have installed is over 44 metres (145 feet) long.

Other Domestic Lifts
We know that sometimes you require a very specialised product that might have a very unique use. From large domestic animals to refuse bin lifts we can find a solution that’s right for you. We can supply portable hoists to convey heavy domestic animals, as well as scissor tables for ease of veterinary investigation. We have also installed a stair lift in a boat with a specialist tray upon a private yacht to assist an old dog between decks, which proved successful for owner and pet alike.
Where space in the city is at a premium we can install lifts to lower dustbins, rubbish bins, refuse bins, recycling bins etc. beneath the drive so vehicles can have access to the front of the building. In addition to refuse bin lifts, when space is short to come by, we can install home car lifts so that 2 cars can fit into the space of 1. Home car lifts are perfect when you are trying to maximise space with a smart solution to a parking problem in a busy street or residential road.
