Designed to accommodate wheelchair users and seated passengers, this highly functional lift has been refined over two decades since its initial release, making it a lift perfectly suited to installation in domestic dwellings.

Reasons To Choose The VM

Suited To You

We offer a very wide range of lift sizes as standard, that should suit any home. There should always be a Wessex solution available to you!

Safety Is Our Top Priority

Like all our through-floor lifts, the VM complies to (and exceeds) BS5900:2012 with a wide range of safety features, including sensors on the top and bottom of the lift car, in-car alarm, and fire seal.
