THE RESIDENTIAL LIFT COMPANY

With ever increasing land prices, two storey homes are becoming a necessity and with the aging population having a home elevator is quickly becoming an essential inclusion.

The features that make our RESiLIFT so unique are:

* It is made in Australia and the inventor is still actively involved
in the business.  This guarantees you access to the information and support
you need.

* When designing the ResiLift(tm) for the home environment we aimed
for minimal visual impact and maximum accessibility.

* It is more affordable than commercial style elevators and can be
retrofitted after the building works are completed if this is preferred by
your builder.

* We believe that the ResiLift(tm) is the most reliable home elevator
on the market, which is going to be important when using a lift inside the
privacy of your home.

We can send you a brochure detailing the 3 different models and current price
list along with more technical information is available if required.

When the ResiLift(tm) is being included in a New Build, we will appoint a
project manager to liaise with your builder throughout the process to ensure
the best outcome for you. The next step is usually to review your plans and
identify a suitable location.

We would also like to arrange for you to experience a ResiLift for yourself.
RESiLIFT really does need to be seen to be believed.  It is so simple, so
accessible and so affordable.

RESiLIFT will no doubt add value, safety and convenience to your new home.

CELEBRATING OVER 1000 LIFTS!

We're celebrating our customers, suppliers and growth with the installation of our 1000th lift. Here are some of your stories on how our lifts have impacted Australian lives.

THE INVENTOR

Peter Van Emmerik was a Hydro Engineer in the construction of dams for almost 40 years which led him to jobs around Australia and abroad.  His innovative style, coupled with his knowledge of stresses was widely recognized and sought after.

When Peter retired in 1999, he designed the first RESiLIFT® to allow people to stay in their homes.  By June 2004 the first proto-type was operating in his home in Lenah Valley, Tasmania.

The design was certified by SEMF and accepted by Workplace Standards Tasmania. It was granted a patent for its unique design which minimises the impact on the home.  The lift received a high commendation from the Institute of Engineers in 2009.

Inventor & CEO : Peter and Rosemary van Emmerik

Since then Peter and his wife Rosemary set up their first commercial business together – The Residential Lift Company,  Peter as Production Manager, Rosemary as Sales Manager.  Together they have sold and installed almost 1,000 lifts throughout Australia and now have family members actively involved in the business.

Today Peter's trailblazing style continues as he is actively involved in product development of his innovation the RESiLIFT®.

Peter and Rosemary look forward to the future and passing on the family business to the next generation whilst still developing ideas and new models to meet the growing market.

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.


Most Affordable
The RESiLIFT® is half the price of a commercial-style lift, with less building modifications and ongoing maintenance than with any other lift.

Safe & 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 home. The sensors, grabrail and safety shield reduces the risk of falling out. See full features here. Read full safety features.

Manufactured in Australia
RESiLIFT® was designed by an Australian for Australians. We use locally sourced parts to manufacture. This means you have local support if needed.

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.

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.

Add Value to Your Home
Installing a RESiLIFT® will add value, convenience and safety to your home. Should you decide to sell, it increases the number of potential buyers.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

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!

Alf and Val, Miracle owner, Yamba, Northern NSW

Alf never used the stair climber and now since his knee operation, Alf can’t use the stair climber at all. So we are now thrilled that we can both use our new RESiLIFT safely.

Rosemary & Allen, Mirage owner, Brisbane, QLD

We future-proofed our home and now it is so much easier to get our groceries upstairs.

Adele, Miracle owner, Fernie Hill, Brisbane QLD

Far better than I ever imagined! The professionalism of the distributor and installers was outstanding.

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,…
