Bin Platform Lift

The term “bin lift” refers to a type of lift that is designed to help with the storage of bins underground at residential and commercial sites alike.

Place your faith in Alliance Platform Lifts as the bespoke designer, manufacturer, and installer of a high-quality bin lift system at your site, and you will benefit from a comprehensive service. The result will be a sophisticated bin lift that is not only functional, but also fits in aesthetically with the broader building where it is sited.

About Our Bin Lifts

Turn to Alliance Platform Lifts for the planning, fabrication, installation, and aftercare of one or several bin platform lifts at your domestic or business building. Doing so will mean benefitting from the ideal solution for the vertical transportation of bins and goods in any environment.

We have a reputation of being so much more than “just” another platform lift supplier. Working closely with property owners, contractors and architects, we provide no less than the most exacting expert service and project management.

Our approach is one of providing completely tailored solutions, with a wide variety of sizes and capabilities possible to suit any application.

Features Of Our Bin Lifts

A bin lift might not seem like the kind of investment for your building that would represent the height of inspiration. But our team at Alliance Platform Lifts appreciates that bin platform lifts should be no less intelligently designed, durably made, and effortlessly functional – not to mention safe – than any other type of lift that you might order to have created for your premises.

To this end, our bin lifts can be designed and built to incorporate all manner of features and touches. For initial inspiration, you might look to relevant lifts in our pre-existing product range. These include:

  • The APL2 elite cabin lift with its light curtain and a choice of swing or automatic sliding doors
  • The robust and easily customisable APL6 Goods lift, which is suited to both indoor and outdoor environments
  • Our powerful APL7 lift – capable of lifting up to 5,000kg of goods – can also make an excellent bin lift.


Alternatively, feel free to simply ask our team about the features our leading bin platform lifts can incorporate. These can range from the use of stainless steel or mild steel in their construction, and full load testing and CE certification, to ensuring the lift complies with certain specifications that are important in your industry.
