Lifts for private homes

Bespoke design and craftsmanship – with 150 years’ experience

From lovingly reflecting the detail of a heritage property restoration to future-proofing a new home design, our lift engineers help homeowners and architects to bring their vision to life.

You might want to create an impressive statement, to subtly improve access with a wheelchair lift, or to make the most of available space. We have a wide range lifts – and the experience – to help.

The perfect passenger lift for any residence - tailored to your specification
Our expertise in creating glass lifts and custom finishes – while adhering to all the relevant safety guidance – makes us a popular choice with architects.

We are as comfortable designing domestic lift packages for award-winning new developments, as we are modernising lift access in a Grade I listed property with a 19th century heritage that matches our own.  

Our executive homelifts are endlessly customisable, while our passenger or platform lifts in our FX structure that keep the weight off old or timber-framed buildings.

Our passenger lift ranges, Xtralift and Maxilift, are trusted in tens of thousands of premises across the UK. Our comprehensive choice of sizes and specifications – with and without machine rooms – means we can deliver a solution to fit your lift shaft, structure and space.

Dumbwaiters: the ultimate practical accessory
For townhouses and homes over several floors, our Microlift dumb waiters – or butler lifts – are an increasingly popular choice. Butler lifts make light work of moving food, drinks, tableware, or shopping at the touch of a button.

In some homes, the dumbwaiter lifts meals between the kitchen and the pantry. In luxury apartments, it can be a convenient way to take shopping upstairs from the car. Either way, homeowners often tell us they wonder how they ever managed before. Sometimes homeowners like to incorporate patterns or colours to match their new kitchen or work area which is now possible with the modern home dumbwaiter.

Refurbishment and maintenance from highly-trained technicians
If the right lift is important, choosing the right maintenance partner is essential. Ours is a family business, and for over 150 years we have built our reputation on skilled technicians offering a dedicated, personalised service.

Whether we are installing a new lift, refurbishing an old one, or completing regular, preventative maintenance, we pride ourselves on demonstrating constant consideration. After all, there is little point having a first-class lift, without first-class service.
