Asset 1

Most affordable
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.

Asset 3

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 shield reduces the risk of falling out. Read full safety features below.

Asset 4

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.

Asset 6

Quality
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.

Asset 5

Compact design
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.

Asset 2

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.

LOW MAINTENANCE FEES

The RESiLIFT® has been designed to be maintenance free.

We are so proud of our clever design (other than the fact that we invented the lift) the service fees are minimal!

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.

Another reason why our fees are so low is our lifts are 'Through-Floor' residential lifts, therefore they don't require mandatory annual check-ups.  We pride ourselves in our reliability.

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.

 

ENERGY EFFICIENT

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.]

DUAL ENTRY

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.

Let us come and visit your home today to talk through the options.

RESiLIFT® BENEFITS

For over a decade we have been perfecting our lift to ensure that our customers enjoy all the benefits that our lift offers

RESiLIFT® is manufactured in Australia from quality parts by the Residential Lift Company who is the patent holder.

RESiLIFT® is the original freestanding residential elevator. This means that it does not require a shaft, reducing the impact on the building and minimising any building modifications associated with installing a lift.

The RESiLIFT® includes a safety shield which ensures that once the operator is more than 1 meter from the ground there is a barrier preventing them from falling.

The doorless quality of RESiLIFT®increases accessibility, reliability and safety; it is not possible to become trapped inside.

Peter van Emmerik who designed the innovative RESiLIFT® is still actively involved in product development within the business which means you have the latest improvements.

Because the lift is made locally, it can be supplied quickly or if desired, customised to your unique requirements, such as modifying the depth of the car.

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!

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…

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,…
