As baby boomers enter their golden years, many are hoping to stay in their homes and communities. “Future proofing” their homes is a serious consideration and a home elevator should be a part of planning for the future.
Forget about clunky and cumbersome home elevators with awkward manual gates of the past. Todays residential elevators are sleek, safe and can fit into a surprisingly small footprint.
A residential elevator can accommodate a homeowners evolving needs and should be a consideration if you own a multi-level home or condominium.
One of the most common questions for anyone considering a home elevator is “Are home elevators affordable?”
Unlike other home furnishings, calculating the exact cost of a home elevator depends on your unique needs. A GMV home elevator can be as elaborate or as functional as you want. In this post, we will be focusing on what is actually included in affordable home elevators.

Are Affordable Elevators Safe?
Safety has always been a primary consideration at GMV NA. When installing vertical transportation in your home our equipment surpasses industry safety standards. This is why GMV NA has taken the initiative to sell only automatic sliding doors – they are safer than any other style of elevator door. Automatic doors eliminate the chance of small children or pets becoming trapped between the elevator gate and hallway door.
