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

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.

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 […]

Joseph E, Mirage RESiLIFT owner, Parkville, VIC.

It has been a pleasure dealing with you & your company. We are very grateful for the prompt attention & wonderful service – The lift makes our life very comfortable living in our home.

Bill R, Miracle RESiLIFT owner, Dromana, VIC.

“Outstanding and excellent! From my first communication all the way through to post-instalment, I have been highly impressed. I am delighted to share my satisfaction and gratitude. Thank you RESiLIFT so much!”

Lyn N, Miracle Max RESiLIFT 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

The History of The Residential Lift Company One could hardly imagine that the prototype RESiLIFT® would birth an Australia-wide company leading the way in simplicity, cost effectiveness, easy installation  and maintenance.  Nor could one imagine that the heritage of each of the players contributed to the design and inspiration of the project. Rosemary Murphy born 1936 came from a long line of Engineers beginning with her grandfather, Joseph Francies, who  became a Professor of Engineering in India and her father, Frank Murphy, obtained a degree of Science Engineering at the University of London. Peter van Emmerik, Rosemary’s husband, has a Diploma of Mechanical Engineering, Hobart.  Peter was to become the designer of the lift.  Their son, Andy, has a Degree in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.  Peter’s family moved from Holland to Java and his grandparents formed the White Cross Colony to address the problem of the aftermath of a volcano in mid Java.  At its heyday the White Cross Colony housed over 1,000 people and provided shelter, food and work on the coffee plantation ,dairy, weaving and an orphanage. The 2nd World War resulted in the family being sent to concentration camp and the Colony falling into disrepair.  Peter’s Father,…
