Find the Right Type of New Lift for Your Property

The first step in the elevator installation process is choosing the type of lift that best suits your needs. We offer a wide range of commercial lifts, industrial lifts, and lifts for residential properties that can be tailored to meet your bespoke requirements.

Passenger lifts are one of the most recognisable and popular types of lift. They are designed to improve accessibility for building users across a wide range of sectors, including offices, shopping centres, hotels, hospitals, and much more.

Service lifts are used to move bulky or heavy goods such as trolleys, pallets, and roll cages between floors. They are most commonly found in commercial and industrial settings like retail stores and warehouses.

  • Any industry-specific requirements that would require additional consideration during the design or installation phase

At Sheridan Lifts, we provide a high-quality service while also maintaining competitive pricing for our customers. To determine the right type of lift for your needs, our team will discuss the scope of your project with you and talk you through our transparent and comprehensive pricing options as part of this initial discussion.

We also offer lift leasing services, which allow our clients to take a more cost-effective approach to their lift projects. With lift leasing, you get the same quality products and services as a traditional lift installation, but payments are spread over a longer period of time to prevent high upfront costs.

We’re More Than Just a Lift Installation Company


In addition to being the UK’s leading independent lift installers, we also specialise in lift maintenance and lift refurbishments.

We have lift maintenance packages available for all budgets and requirements, giving you peace of mind for years to come knowing that your lift is safe and legally compliant.

If you already have a lift, our lift refurbishment services may be of interest to you. Our expert engineers can modernise your existing lift to improve its safety and reduce the risk of costly breakdowns occurring in the future.

Lift Installation FAQs

The amount of time it takes to install a lift can depend on a number of factors, including:

  • The type of lift
  • The size of the lift
  • The location of the lift
  • The number of floors the lift needs to cover

If you’re looking for an accurate estimation of how long it will take for your lift installation to be completed, send us the details of your project today.

In most cases, home lift installations do not require planning permission. Your lift will not require planning permission as long as it meets all of the following criteria:

  • It is for personal use and not for commercial use
  • It does not alter the external appearance of the building
  • It is not visible from the public highway
  • It does not exceed specified size limits

However, planning permission will always be required if the lift shaft is built as an external add-on or if the building is listed, so it’s always best to speak to your local authority before installing a lift.

A properly installed and well-maintained lift should last for around 20-30 years. It is normal for a lift to be refurbished or replaced at least once or twice in a building’s lifespan, if not more.

At Sheridan Lifts, we not only specialise in lift installations but also in lift refurbishments. If your lift is reaching the end of its lifespan, contact us to find out how we can modernise it.

A standard lift uses a large amount of electricity, with a 15-second journey producing as much energy as a 60W light bulb does in an hour.

However, upgrading to an energy-saving lift can help your business use up to 80% less electricity than more traditional lifts. This can save you money, as well as reduce your carbon footprint.
