What You Need To Know Before Installing A Platform Or Wheelchair Lift 

No, council approval or a council permit is not required for an interior home lift installation if there are no significant structural changes to your home.

However, for an exterior home lift, notification and approval from the local council will be required and in some other states, a building permit may be required.

We recommend checking with your local council as requirements will vary depending on your home, the home lift you are looking to install, and the state you live in

There are 5 main stages of a lift installation, from the initial inquiry and estimate, all the way up to the final safety checks. These are as follows:

Stage 1Discovery Session & Pricing Estimate

  • Your elected lift company will provide estimated pricing for a lift based on plans or photos you may already have from a builder or architect. The extra safety & accessibility features you may need will most likely be accounted for in this estimation

Stage 2 – Site Visit & Survey

A routine visit from your lift installation company will be conducted on your property. This will help ensure that the exact requirements for your home lift are understood while also helping to provide a more accurate estimation of the final price of the lift.

Stage 3 – Design & Manufacturing

Upon confirmation of the proposal of the Home Lift, you will then proceed to the design stage of the process. Detailed drawings will be supplied and consulted with you, your architect, and your builder if required. Revisions will be provided until all parties are happy, upon which the finalised design will be made ready. Once approved and payment is received, the manufacturing of your home lift will commence.

Stage 4 – Delivery & Installation

Approximately 1 month prior to the arrival of your lift, your elected lift installation company will generally be in touch to schedule a final pre-site check and installation start date. Once the site is confirmed to be ready for installation, the lift will be delivered and installation will begin. Allow between 1 - 2 weeks for this.

Stage 5 – Completion & Training

Once installation is complete, a final handover meeting will be arranged. This is primarily to provide training on how to use your new home lift, what safety measures you need to keep in mind, owner and operator manuals as well as any servicing requirements.

Yes, all lifts, including Home Lifts, Commercial Lifts, Wheelchair Lifts, and Platform Lifts are required to have an active emergency phone that must be answered by a 24-hour help centre.

This is as per Australian AS1735 Lift Standards and NCC E3.6. It is important to note that Stair Lifts are not considered here.

Generally, most lift installation companies provide this service as well and include them in their home lift packages.

Yes, often NDIS will be able to contribute to the cost of your Home Lift. This depends on your plan and the amount of funding you have.

Home Lifts generally fall under the following categories when it comes to making a claim:

– Home Modification

– Personal Mobility Equipment

– Assist Prod-Pers Care/Safety

It is important to check in with your Plan Manager to see what type of support you could get from the NDIS for a Home Lift.

Wheelchair platform lift prices in Australia are on average around $35,000.

However, some models can be bought and installed for as little as $15,000 or as much as $60,000.

Each project and installation will differ in cost so it is important to compare a number of different quotes from multiple providers to ensure you are getting the best deal.

Lifts For Homes only work with the best lift installation & manufacturing companies in the country.

Each company is vetted by our internal partnerships team to ensure that the quotes we provide are of the highest of quality, ensuring that you receive the best Platform Lift experience possible.
