There was once a time when elevators were a rarity and only the rich could afford to have them installed. Luckily, times have changed which means that anybody and everybody is able to enjoy the ease that an elevator provides. With this said, there are more types and models than people think and it is important that you make the best choice for your property. Here are the most popular elevators in the industry and the differences that separate them…

Home Lift

Many people are still opposed to the idea of having an elevator inside the home when it is actually one of the most up and coming modern additions you can invest in. After all, they help save valuable space in comparison to a staircase, especially when your property spans over several floors, and they are a brilliant way to increase the value of your home if you are looking to sell up.

Commercial Lift

In 2018 it is a common curtsey to provide step free access in public locations for members of the public who may face great difficulty with stairs. That is where commercial lifts come in! As a type of lift that is much larger than a residential lift, commercial lifts can be found in shopping centres, supermarkets and even train stations.


Whilst the dumbwaiter isn’t exactly as popular as the home lift or commercial elevator, it is hard to ignore their place in the industry. After all, a dumbwaiter reduces the risk of contamination in food service industries and drastically improves employee productivity as there is no need to run up and down several floors in order to get the job done in time.
