Residential Elevators

You’ll find that home elevators are surprisingly useful! Whether it’s from saving the multiple trips up and down the stairs with laundry, furniture, kids, seasonal items or groceries, you will be sure to find our home elevator lifts make a practical addition to your residence. Our home elevators blend with your home's décor and are an affordable amenity that you will cherish for a lifetime. Not only is a residential home elevator safe and convenient, it adds value to your home, making it a wise investment. Plus, with a home elevator, you avoid tripping over stairs and injuring your back transporting heavy or cumbersome items from one floor to another floor.

Transitions Lift + Elevator specializes in several categories of home elevator systems and lifts. We have an economical two-stop, space-saving, 500-pound capacity elevator; an affordable 950-1,000-pound builder-grade elevator; 500-pound, and 950-pound pit-less elevators for remodeling projects; custom 1,000-pound elevators; 1,400-pound high-capacity elevators; and environmentally friendly “green” gearless elevator or vacuum elevator options. Not only do we sell and install home elevators, we also repair and maintain them, as well. Basically, if you have any questions or needs related to home elevators, please contact us here at Transitions. We'd love to help you out!

Keep in mind that the prices of custom home elevators depend on numerous factors, including car configuration, how far the elevator travels (how many stories the building is), the number of openings and its size. We will be delighted to go over the options with you to help you make the optimal selection. And if you need customizations to realize your dream design, then let us know because we're always ready to integrate new ideas and non-standard features. Read below to learn more about the types of residential elevators we provide.

Anyone using a wheelchair at your two-story home or place of work deserves equal access to the building. Unfortunately, many structures are built without considering the needs of people who are disabled. To remedy the situation, homeowners and business owners can install a vertical wheelchair platform lift.

At Transitions Lift + Elevator, we have a vertical wheelchair lift to accommodate any indoor or outdoor application you can envision. Vertical lifts for homes and businesses allow everyone to access the building, no longer having to worry about being excluded.

A Wheelchair Porch Lift for Any Occasion

Porch lifts — also known as vertical wheelchair platform lifts or wheelchair lifts — move vertically between levels in buildings.

Platform lifts make it possible to travel the shortest distance between two levels inside or outside a home, church, office, stage or any other place that needs to ensure accessibility for people using wheelchairs and walkers.

Transitions Lift + Elevator specializes in hydraulic and screw column platform wheelchair lifts. You’ll find that our lifts are versatile in design so they can fit most any configuration or situation.

Whether you are looking for accessibility for your home, office or church, we have a vertical lift solution for you! Transitions Lift + Elevator is your local accessibility specialist in Kentucky, Southern Indiana and Ohio. We pride ourselves on quality equipment and personal service.

Standard Features of a Wheelchair Vertical Platform Lift Include:

•    Anti-Slip Flooring
•    Self-closing doors
•    Push buttons to call the lift
•    Key switch to prevent unauthorized use

The team at Transitions Lift + Elevator won’t be satisfied until you are completely happy with your new vertical platform lift. If you would like to learn more about our equipment or have questions about customizing vertical platform lifts, please contact us today.

Vertical Platform Options

If you’re in search of the perfect vertical platform lift, we’ve got you covered: Transitions Lift + Elevator currently offers six types of vertical platform lifts from which to choose:

  • Inclinator Elevette Winding Drum Elevator

Elevette Cable Drum Drive: Machine Room

For a new construction home or a home that can accommodate adding a pit, this elevator is ideal. Typically, we will install the machine room in your attic or basement. A winding drum elevator is durable to last many years and will improve your home’s value. This option typically has the lowest maintenance required over the life of the elevator.
  • Inclinator Elevette Hydraulic Elevator

Elevette Hydraulic Drive: Versatile Machine Room

Providing an extremely smooth ride, this elevator is the choice of many homeowners because it can start and stop at varying speeds and requires only a small machine room for hydraulics and controllers.
  • Inclinator Elevette Winding Drum Elevator Machine Roomless

Elevette Overhead Cable Drum Drive: Machine Roomless

No machine room is needed for this space-saving elevator design. If you need the smoothest possible ride and as much as 1,000 pounds of carrying capacity, this model may be your best option.
  • Vacuum Elevators

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

These don’t require the larger footprint of traditional residential elevators. We now offer vacuum elevators in three sizes: • Standard 30-inch model is capable of supporting one passenger and up to 350 pounds • 37-inch model carries two passengers up to 450 pounds • 52-inch model carries three people and as many as 525 pounds
  •  Pitless Winding Drum Elevators

Retro-Fit "Pitless" Cable Drum Elevator

If your plans call to retrofit an existing home and you have no room for a pit, our pitless winding drum elevators will surely fit the bill. We design customized 500-pound and 950-pound versions of this elevator.
  • Automatic Sliding Door Elevator

Sliding Doors: Sleek & Modern

In search of a more elegant solution? This model features doors that automatically slide open and closed. A state-of-the-art infrared detection system enables touch-free action, with the doors automatically retracting before hitting an obstacle.
  • Telecab 17

Telecab17: High Capacity 875 lb. Home Lift

The Telecab17 model is a 845 lb. high-capacity home lift, ideal for heavier mobility equipment. No hoist way or pit required. It has a fully enclosed drive tower designed for safety and aesthetics. It requires a less invasive construction project than a traditional home elevator, with only a support wall and floor cutout needed. The aluminum frame is powder-coated (white) with clear acrylic window panels.
  • Hydraulic Through the Floor Elevator

Telecab: Versatile 500 lb. Capacity Home Lift

An excellent choice for homes with limited room for easy access between two floors. Since no pit is required, people often refer to this type as a “vanishing” elevator because it disappears into the floor or ceiling when not in use.
  • Wessex Elevator

Through-the-Floor: Wessex

The Wessex VE is a simple and unobtrusive space saving design that uses the absolute minimum space in your home.
