Factors to Consider Before you Install a Home Lift in London

If you’re planning to install a home lift in your property, there’s plenty of things to consider. Not only do you have to find a lift that works for your budget and your space, but you also have to think about usability and how much value it can add to your house. Here at Vimec, we understand there are a number of other things that you have to think about before you install a lift in your home. To help make this process easier, we have compiled a list of our top 4 factors that you should bear in mind before you install a home lift in London.


How Much Energy will the Lift Use?


Our home lifts are made with modern technology, avoiding the use of the dangerous hydraulic fluid by using electricity. While this is more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, you do have to think about the impact that it will have on your energy bills. Having a lift is an incredibly useful and sometimes necessary addition to your home, but being unprepared for the amount of money that you’ll have to spend out on your energy bill can lead to spiralling costs. You can speak to a member of our staff, who can walk you through the different home lifts that we offer and the amount of energy that each one typically uses.


Can it Be Customised to your Needs?


We understand that one of the things you have to consider when investing in a lift, aside from the practical elements, is making sure that it fits into the aesthetics of your home. This is why we’re committed to offering customers a made-to-measure solution. Not only can you work with us on things like the size of your lift, which is incredibly important, but we can also offer you customisable materials, colours, and cabin finishes. This means that you can choose your levels of comfort and safety that will work for the whole family.

What Safety Features Does it Have?


Your safety is our number one priority, which is why we’re committed to making sure that our installations are safe and that you and your family are secure in our lifts. Before we start work, we always complete on-site surveys and risk assessments to make sure that both you and our team are completely safe whilst working on your lift installation. 


Additionally, we are careful to make sure that all of our lifts, no matter what requirements you might have for them, are functioning as they should, protecting both you and those around you. We’ve worked on all sorts of lifts in the past and can guarantee that we will be able to offer you a residential lift that is practical and safe to use. 


How Much Space is Needed?


Of course spaces are relative, but it is really important to remember that your lift is going to take up a vast amount of room. Whilst we’re not about to install a large, industrial lift into your home, that doesn’t mean that we don’t need a fair amount of space. Lifts require a certain amount of room, particularly overhead for the bulkier components. If you’re not entirely sure how much space you need, you can speak to one of our experts about the model of lift you’re considering and how much space you will need as a result.
