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…
Installing a RESiLIFT® is half the price of a traditional commercial-style lift in your home. It requires less building modifications and ongoing maintenance than with any other lift.
Safe and easy to use
RESiLIFT® operates with continuous pressure. The operator is in control of the journey for the whole way. By not having a door, RESiLIFT® maximises accessibility and there is no risk of being trapped in your lift. The sensors, grabrail and safety barrier reduces the risk of falling out. Read full safety features below.
Manufactured in Australia
RESiLIFT® was designed by an Australian for Australians. We use locally sourced parts to manufacture. This means you have local technical support if needed.
The key components of RESiLIFT® are made from quality products. The hoist is German Engineered and made in Australia by SEW Eurodrive. The extrusions are from Ullrich and all other components are manufactured in Tasmania.
The footprint for a Mirage is incredibly less than one square metre. It is the most compact residential lift on the market taking less space than a shower. We are also able customise the Miracle to fit in very small spaces.
Add value to your home
Installing a RESiLIFT® will add value, convenience and safety to your home. Should you ever decide to sell, these factors is likely to attract more potential buyers and buyers with greater spending capacity.
Here's a short video of Peter's recent visit to Melbourne for a showroom launch party. You can see how smooth the lift operates and the seamless design that can blend into any home environment.
OTHER FEATURES YOU SHOULD KNOW....
LOW MAINTENANCE FEES
We pride ourselves on the reliability of our product. Provided the annual service is conducted, it is reasonable to expect that there would not be any other maintenance charges during the year.
The doorless feature is the main reason why maintenance is minimal. Remember 90% of the reason why services are required by lift companies is that people are trapped because of door malfunction.
Because we are truly local, there won't be any waiting around for parts to come from another country, plus the expertise and knowledge are local. All these features reinforce why RESiLIFT® is the smartest purchase to make.
The RESiLIFT® has been designed to use minimal energy. It simply plugs into a standard 10 amp powerpoint and uses less power than a toaster!
This not only keeps running costs to a bare minimum, but installation costs don't require expensive electrical upgrading, saving on costly electrician fees.
SHORT LEAD TIME
The reason we have a short lead time is our lifts are truly local. All the parts are local and easily accessible which minimises wait time. Our service comes with local support and expertise. This is one of the many benefits to an Australian manufactured product. As the lifts are manufactured locally you don't have to wait for it to arrive on a boat from China!
The quick turnaround is also evident in any ongoing services that may be required.
The fast lead time is typically 4-6 weeks but in emergencies can be as short as one week from time of request. [In some circumstances where there has been a medical emergency we have been able to install in less than a week.]
The Miracle and Miracle Max are available in single and dual entries/exits. This provides the customer with an option installing the lift in different locations, and simply walking through (or rolling through if in a wheelchair) the lift in the one direction.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
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 […]
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.
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 […]

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
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…
The idea of the lift was conceived when it was proposed to Peter Van Emmerik by his son Andrew, that in view of the ageing population and the absence of a lift suitable for residential use, a market for this product would emerge and that it would provide Peter with a challenging retirement project at age 67. The options were evaluated and it was concluded that to make the lift economic and blend in with the home decor as a retro fit was to make it free standing by eliminating the enclosures and enclosure doors. It was discovered that the Australian Standards Commission had also foreseen the emerging need and had composed and issued a Standard AS 1735 part 15 to meet this need. The “thru lift” concept was birthed at this very time. The next challenge was to have the entire lift motor, wire rope system, control boards etc. within the 300 mm high space between the cabin ceiling and the home ceiling to avoid penetrating the upper floor ceiling into the roof space. Peter set out drafting the lift on a drafting board he had purchased at a Hydro fire sale! The prototype unit was then produced on…
