Which through-floor homelift is right for you?

Wessex Lift Co Ltd have been manufacturing and designing home lifts (both through the floor lifts and platform lifts) in Hampshire for over forty years now, and have a range of different lifts to suit almost any requirement. It’s no surprise, therefore, if you have picked us to supply you with your through-floor home lift... but which one is best for you?

See below for a short, helpful guide on deciding which through-floor lift is right for you...

Do you have a wheelchair?

If so, you should look at our VM Home Lift or our VE Enclosed Home Lift, which are both able to carry a wheelchair user (more on these below). If you don’t need a lift that can take a wheelchair, have a look at our Elesse Home Lift.

Do you just need to transport one wheelchair user upstairs?

The VM open cabin lift is very well suited to this task. While the VE enclosed cabin lift is also capable of transporting a single wheelchair user, as well as other additional occupants, the VM is our best selling home lift. Its simple design lends itself to taking one passenger at a time up stairs. Check it out here, or download the brochure.

Do you need to transport multiple occupants in the lift (e.g. wheelchair user and carer, parent and child)?

Both the VM and the VE can carry a wheelchair user, but if you need to take multiple occupants upstairs at the same time, the VE Enclosed Home Lift is the lift for you. With its aesthetic enclosed car design, it can easily manage transporting multiple passengers upstairs simultaneously. Check out our VE here, or download the brochure.

Have you been looking for a stairlift?

If you have been looking for a stairlift, the Elesse is definitely right for you. With a very premium build quality and very small footprint, this lift is an excellent, modern alternative to the stairlift. Although it is unable to carry a wheelchair user, it can transport multiple standing occupants at the same time. Have a look here for more information, or download the brochure.
