A home lift is a long-term investment. Therefore, before deciding which home lift to install, several key factors should be taken into account. By prioritizing safety, functionality, budget and design, you can select a lift that seamlessly integrates into your home and brings convenience and comfort to your everyday life. We’ve created a short guide to help you decide which home lift is right for you.
How to choose the right home lift for you
Key considerations for choosing the home lift that best suits your needs.
Familiarize yourself with the various home lift models and sizes available. Some models are designed for smaller spaces, such as the Aritco HomeLift Compact, while others offer more generous dimensions for larger homes. Ask yourself, what will the home lift primarily be used for? Do you need it to provide assistance for a family member with limited mobility? Do you need room for a mobility scooter or full-size wheelchair, maybe even with space for an extra passenger? Or will it be used for everyday convenience and activities such as bringing heavy groceries up from the garage?
And don’t forget to consider placement. Aritco home lifts require no pit or machine room, giving you the flexibility to easily incorporate them into your existing floor plan.
Tip: Order a home kit to see how different-sized Artico home lifts would fit in with your home.
Setting a clear budget is essential when choosing a home lift. Prices can vary depending on the model, size and additional features. Explore different financing options, if needed, to make the purchase more manageable.
Tip: When deciding on your budget, it’s worth considering the potential increase in property value which could offset upfront costs.

Safety and Compliance
When selecting a home lift, prioritize safety and ensure the chosen model complies with relevant safety standards and regulations. Look for features such as emergency lowering systems, door interlocks, and backup power supplies to guarantee the safety of users during power outages or emergencies. Confirm that the lift is installed by certified professionals who follow safety protocols and guidelines to minimize potential risks. All Aritco lifts come with our SmartSafety System which includes vital safety features. Some of them can be controlled via our SmartLift App.
Tip: If you have kids in your home or as frequent visitors, make sure your lift has a child lock.
Before installation, consult with professionals to understand the specific requirements and any necessary modifications for integrating the home lift into your home. Consider the time frame and potential disruptions during the installation process. Discuss with the installation team about any necessary electrical or structural adjustments to ensure a smooth installation process.
Aritco home lifts require minimal home modifications, therefore installation usually only takes between 4-5 days, which can cut installation costs by up to 70% compared to traditional elevators.
Tip: Inquire about the maintenance services offered, including post-installation support and warranty coverage.
Final Tip: Plan Ahead
A high-quality, well-maintained home lift can last for decades. So, when choosing which home lift to install, it’s important to not only consider current circumstances but also any future needs that might arise.
