FAQ

RESiLIFT® are the smallest residential lifts on the market.  The smallest RESiLIFT® is the Mirage and has a footprint of only 1040mm x 850mm. The Mirage can fit in almost any home in places like a linen cupboard or on an angle in the corner of the room.  It is ideal for fitting into existing floorplans that did not contemplate including a lift.

The largest RESiLIFT® is the Miracle Max.  This is sufficiently large for a wheelchair, but still only takes 1040mm X 1350mm.  We are able to customise for any size in between these measurements except for the 1040 at the guiderails which cannot be altered.

When the lift is being installed as part of a new build, the ideal dimensions for any 'provision for future lift' are 1070X1200 for the Miracle models and 1070 X 1500 for the Miracle Max models

Stephen H, Portarlington, Miracle

The lift has been absolutely fantastic for my parents. They have been able to enjoy their lovely upstairs views and amities which otherwise would no longer be unavailable to them. My whole family appreciates the great benefit the lift has been for my parents.

Ian & Adele H, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Carlingford, NSW

Installing this lift has made such a difference, no more piles of washing waiting to be taken downstairs or carried upstairs. It has made our house complete and it has taken no time for us to “just go by lift”. Carrying laundry upstairs was one step at a time, now the basket is in the […]

Joseph & Raj E, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Parkville, VIC.

The complete installation was affordable as we are a retired couple.The installation of this lift was compact and has made our life comfortable and now we’re able to stay in our own Townhouse. We were very pleased with the staff including the excellent after sales service.

Ann B, Miracle RESiLIFT owner, Melbourne, VIC.

Resilift.. wonderful. I never thought it would be so fantastic. We had it installed from the garage,(where my husband spends a lot of time!) up into the laundry in the first floor living area. I used to dread going up and down the stairs. Now with the lift it is just like going into another […]

Bill and Thersa R, Miracle RESiLIFT owners, Dromana, VIC.

We are just one couple, of doubtless many hundreds who have benefited from your Father’s expertise and drive to develop ResiLifts. That it is an Aussie company from Tasmania adds hugely to my admiration.Therefore, I would like you to pass on to him, my personal gratitude for his original endeavour, our satisfaction with the lift, […]

Janie and Phil R, Mirage RESiLIFT owners, Port Melbourne VIC.

We would like to thank you for the excellent work and service you provided to us when we were in a tight spot and needed an installation very quickly, due to Phil’s fall. You bent over backwards to get the lift intact, prior to his return from hospital. We have had nothing but satisfaction with […]

Retirement is an ideal time to prepare for the next fulfilling season of our lives – and one of the most important decisions to make is whether to stay in the home you’ve grown to love, or move on. Don’t make that call until you’ve considered all the options. Retirement is an ideal time to prepare for the next fulfilling season of our lives – and one of the most important decisions to make is whether to stay in the home you’ve grown to love, or move on. Don’t make that call until you’ve considered all the options. There are many factors that play into such a major life decision – proximity to the grandchildren, how connected you are to the local community, or even how physically challenging navigating a large house can become after a while. But one thing is for sure: you no longer have to leave your two-storey home just because of the stairs. That’s right; what may have been an insurmountable barrier for many of us a decade ago is no longer, thanks to RESiLIFT. RESiLIFT is a residential lift that can be easily installed into existing or new homes. The clever Australian design was the…

Transitioning into the next phase of retirement, there’s a crucial decision that must come first: to stay in your beloved home or start looking for other options. Thankfully RESiLIFT has given people a good reason to stay after creating the perfect solution to steep stairs and ageing joints. Whether it be carrying the laundry, suitcases or awkward objects, moving safely between floors is now possible. Architect, Jegi Jager, from CPS Project Management says “it just makes sense to incorporate a RESiLIFT into your house, whether you are renovating or designing a new home”. “Australians have to move away from this idea of single-level dwellings” he explains. “Some people associate lifts with ageing, but in 2020 that is not the case. There are many reasons you might need to use a lift, irrespective of your age. All two-level homes in the future need to provide a safe and convenient way to travel between floors.” “Land is expensive, but we need green space around our homes. It is important for our wellbeing to be able to get outside and enjoy some light and green, so the only solution is to go up.” “This is the future. I would never build or plan…

Fifteen years ago, Tasmanian Engineer, Peter van Emmerik was in his early seventies and retired.  Like many people in retirement, he didn’t want to stop working altogether.  Instead he started working on a project, which at the time, he didn’t realise was going to launch a full blown Australian-based company, pioneering residential lifts of this kind around the world.  With Peter’s passion for mechanical engineering, he embarked on a problem-solving project: ‘How can we remove the inevitable danger of stairs in two-storey homes affordably for the average Australian?’  This was a personal dilemma for an elderly relative and eventually was a clever solution for hundreds of Australians.  Peter invented the first ‘through-floor’ residential lift as a safe and convenient alternative.  His motivation was to create a product that empowered people to stay in their home, at an affordable price and with minimal impact on the building.  Prior to his invention, residential lifts were either an exclusive luxury or for people with a disability.  It’s now considered a smart way to future-proof a home.    “I designed this lift so people could stay safely in the home they love,” says Peter.  “It saves time, effort and money that would otherwise be wasted…
