Domestic Wheelchair lifts or 'Home Lifts' are quiet and compact and therefore ideal for wheelchair users at home who only need to travel through one floor. Unlike vertical lifts, upstairs space can still be accessed when the carriage is parked downstairs. Domestic lifts of this kind are sometimes referred to as through floor lifts, thru floor lifts or house lifts.

This type of wheelchair lift can be fitted with a drop down seat and is only suitable for one passenger at a time. The user must be seated at all times.
We currently choose between three suppliers namely Wessex Lifts, Terry Lifts and Pollock Lifts. Each has unique features which help us to determine the most suitable wheelchair lift for the user and their home.
Domestic Lifts Prices
The cost of domestic wheelchair lifts is determined by the amount of building work involved in cutting the aperture, the size of cabin required and the number of options involved of which there are many.
A budget of between £8,000 to £10,000 would usually be enough to cover most eventualities. Factors which could increase this price include extensive re-routing of pipes and wiring in the aperture area or if either the ground or mid floor is not level.
The Wessex Home Lift is available in six configurations to suit a wide range of applications. In common with other domestic wheelchair lifts, free standing tracks eliminate the need for a load bearing wall increasing the number of locations which can accommodate a Home Lift.

One of the key features of the Terry Home Lift is the ability to maintain a half hour fire integrity whether the lift is parked upstairs or downstairs.
Other benefits include the option to have a longer and wider platform if that is a key consideration.
