Drawing on over 30 years experience Only Lifts provide a specialist insight to making the home or public environment accessible to all. We are a small but caring company drawing on the experience of some impressive projects and creative solutions. Always willing to go the extra mile.
We offer a range of products for different mobility/access situations, whether just making the stairs safer at home or providing Equality Act, formerly Disability Discrimination Act compliance.
We are passionate about getting the right solution, on the budget for our clients. After collecting information about the environment, the user and the need we apply our experience to offer the best solution.
The challenge with a specialist service is that you may not have previous experience of dealing with the company. We go to great lengths to make you feel confident. We are members of the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) whose code of conduct we follow. We are Which? Trusted traders and ISO 9001:2015 certified.
The average lifespan of an average stairlift installation is only 4 years, we feel it is our responsibility to take back these lifts that are no longer needed and wherever possible refurbish and re-install them to maximise there usability and thereby reduce waste. Supplying a good quality product in the first place makes this much easier. It also provides those with a tight budget a chance at having stairlift without the cost of new.
Message from our Company Director
Welcome to Only Lifts website, I am Gary Tidman, managing director of Only Lifts. Thank you for taking the time to look around. Whilst we are here to generate some business, I also hope we can offer some help and insight with broader information that will help you make an informed decision. I have always followed the big thinkers of future technologies, especially in the lift industry. Searching out the the most innovative products for the home lift and accessibility market, we can bring you the most practical and reliable products available.
With over 30 years experience of the industry, working in manufacturing, sales, and installations, I have an intimate knowledge from component level through to bespoke design for discerning clients, often collaborating with designers and artisans to ﬁnd the perfect solution.
Unlike many lift suppliers, we balance the need of the client against the available technologies, oﬀering multiple solutions from several sources, often from across the world, using the latest technologies, inﬂuenced by previous experience.
I have provided my services not just in the UK but also in France, Lithuania, Slovakia, Croatia and Qatar. I have also advised the Cyprus government and UK Embassies on disabled access.
In 2014 I was awarded “Individual of the Year” by the British Healthcare Trades Association, following glowing feedback from clients.
