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.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Lyn N, Miracle Max owner, New Gisborne, VIC

I broke my leg just before Christmas. Having the RESiLIFT was a God-send! On the other hand, my girlfriend broke her ankle very badly and had to have an ankle fusion. Their home has very steep stairs and no bathroom downstairs. Without a lift, it was a nightmare. Lyn N, New Gisborne, VIC

David & Josie M, Mirage owners, Surrey Hills, VIC

We have now had the lift for one week of which I spent 5 nights in hospital with my bad back, so our timing to have it installed was perfect & on returning home today I have used the lift with great joy! The people who installed the lift were a pleasure to have working […]

Vicki S, Mirage owner, Tasmania

This RESiLIFT is the best thing to have happened to me! Great for me carrying the groceries and wood!

Romina & Les G, Miracle owner, Mt Eliza, VIC.

It’s absolutely wonderful! For the first time in 12 years of living in this home, it is all on one level; we don’t have to use the stairs to get around our home!

Sylvia and Ian H, Miracle owner, Mornington Peninsula, VIC

Thanks to you and installation team (Phil and Adrian) on the excellent result achieved with this project. We believe this project outside the existing home is not common with most lifts being internal. We are delighted with the result.

Margaret G, Miracle Max owner, Kerang, VIC

“Wonderful product. Wonderful company. Resilift would have to be the best run company that I have had the pleasure to deal with. Service was excellent prompt and delivered with enthusiasm. After sales service was the same. Wishing this family run business all the best for a long and productive future”

Brian & Margaret M, NSW.

Many thanks for the commemorative key ring — it sits proudly on the safety key in our lift, which by the way still gives us yeoman service.

Wes and Madeleine B, Mirage owner, Dodges Ferry, TAS

Congratulations on the sale of 1000 lifts! If all of your customers are as happy as we are, then you’ll have 1000 satisfied customers!

Pictured above is a Miracle RESiLIFT® The RESiLIFT® was specifically designed so people could safely stay in their two-story or split-level home and eliminate the danger of stairs and at the same time offer the most affordable home elevators on the market. Invented by Tasmanian Engineer Peter van Emmerik, the award-winning RESiLIFT® remains to be Australia’s most affordable and reliable home elevator. “I designed this elevator so people could stay safely in the home they love,” says Peter. “It saves time, effort and money that would otherwise be wasted moving home. It also removes the emotional anguish of being uprooted from your family home.” There are numerous RESiLIFT® safety features. Firstly, the home elevator operates with continuous pressure, giving the operator complete control of the journey for the whole way. There is also an isolating key to turn off the entire home elevator unit in case there are occasions that you would like to stop the elevator from being used (perhaps when the grandkids are over?!). The shaftless design means a safety lid covers the upstairs opening when the elevator is on the lower floor. There are pressure sensitive safety surfaces which stop the elevator if there is an obstruction…

In-Home Elevators

RESiLIFTs are the original in-home elevators. The award-winning shaftless design was invented by our very own CEO, Australian engineer Peter van Emmerik. The Residential Lift Company manufactures and distributes the RESiLIFT® range around Australia. Peter’s ground-breaking design is patented and has been replicated across the globe. Pioneering home elevators, Peter’s clever design has enabled the average Australian to afford an in home elevator. Now installing a RESiLIFT® is a fraction of the financial cost of moving homes. The RESiLIFT® can be retrofitted into existing homes with minimal hassle. The home elevator can also be easily installed in new builds. Why install a RESiLIFT in-home elevator? Installing a RESiLIFT® enables people to stay in their split-level home without the limitations and dangers of stairs. In 2019, the RESiLIFT® elevators continue to be Australia’s most affordable in-home elevators on the market with almost 1,500 home elevators installed around the country. Despite the home elevator’s small footprint, RESiLIFT® lifts still fits two people. With the choice of three different sizes, some can accommodate walkers and even wheelchairs. The doorless design means that you can never be trapped in a RESiLIFT® lift. With a huge number of safety features, a RESiLIFT® means you can…

CASE STUDY Ros Morton was in tears six months after she and her husband Stuart moved into their new two-storey home in Rosebud, Victoria. Yes, there were the amazing views of Port Phillip Bay and the sun setting slowly on the horizon. And yes, they were excited to be close to their son and his family in Mount Eliza and all the Peninsula had to offer after relocating from Mooroolbark (Edna Walling territory). But there was one major problem preventing Ros from enjoying any of it. “I’d had a full hip replacement and was having problems rehabilitating. I was in this fabulous house and thinking what have we done? How am I ever going to navigate the stairs? I could barely drag myself up from ground level let alone carry shopping or washing from one floor to the other. We were seriously considering another move.” The Morton’s main living area is on the top floor of their Rosebud home – ideal for drinks on the deck and sighting ships in the distance, but not so great if you are physically challenged. “I had to rely on Stuart to do all the lifting which was difficult because he was going through…
