Buying Process

Buying a home lift with Island Lift Systems is simple. From the moment you get in touch for a quote, to the site survey, all the way through to the final installation and maintenance, we'll be on hand to help you through every stage of the journey. If you're still curious about how the buying process works, our step by step guide can help.

Step 1 Get in Touch

To start the buying process, all you have to do is get in touch. Share your vision with us and we'll use our expertise and experience to help you choose the best size, model and features to suit your needs. Whether you call us, email us, submit an inquiry or we organize a site visit, you won't pay a penny at this stage and there is no obligation to complete a purchase.

Step 2 Get Your Quote

Once we have all the details, we need to get a clear idea of what you want from your home lift, we'll set to work in calculating a free, personalised and no-obligation quote. We'll send this digitally via email and from there, you can accept the quote and terms and conditions online with ease to trigger the next stage of the process.

Step 3 Pay the Deposit

Once you've accepted the quote, we'll generate an invoice for your deposit. This will be 50% of the overall cost of the home lift, which will be the quote given to you in the previous stage. Upon receiving this payment, we can get to work on putting together the initial drawings and plans.

Step 4 Plan Your Lift

The first thing we do after receiving the deposit is take the details you've given us and put together some initial plans and drawings that you will then approve or request changes on. Once we have your approval, our lift project manager will arrange to come and meet you at your home in order to go over measurements, specifications and any samples required.

Step 5 Finalize the Details

Once the project manager has taken the relevant measurements and made any necessary changes to the plans, you'll need to approve the final designs. During this meeting, you'll also be advised of any preparation works that will need to be done before installation can take place, which will be completed prior to delivery of your lift.

Step 6 Production

Once all of the details are finalized and you have approved the drawings, we'll start production on your home lift. This can take up to 8-10 weeks following approval, but this will vary depending on the model you've chosen or our current production schedule.

Step 7 Plan Installation

The next step is to plan your installation date, which we will organize around your schedule. Around 2-4 weeks prior to the arranged date, the project manager will visit your property again to ensure that all relevant works have taken place.

Step 8 Get Your Lift

It's time for installation! The time it will take to install your lift will differ between models and site requirements, however we will give you an estimate prior to this date. Following completion of the installation, our engineers will provide you with full instructions on using your lift and inform you of any additional maintenance or operation details you might need to know. You'll also be given the manual for your lift.
