FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The price of a lift for a two-storey residential home typically varies from $40,000 to $65,000. This includes the cost of compact home lifts as well as larger residential lifts. Building work and numerous other construction expenses are not included in the cost of a residential lift installation.
When manufacturing is finished installation time is about 2-4 weeks.
West Coast Elevators has a dedicated project management team who oversee the entire project, managing the installation and acting as a point of contact between the lift company and the builder. Nothing beats the service provided by the team here at West Coast Elevators!
Because we work closely with your builders, we ensure the lift arrives at the perfect time during construction. We then install it at a time that works with the build schedule, minimising construction delays and saving on costs.
Installing an elevator during the build process of your home helps you save money on construction works and other relevant expenses. Although it is more efficient and cost effective to install a lift when your home is being built, this does not mean that it can't be done at a later date.
The lift shaft can be constructed using various materials but the most commonly used by builders is bricks. If the lift shaft is to be constructed out of bricks, we require a load bearing wall. A load bearing wall is needed so that we can fix our mechanics to it and carry the load of the lift.
Usually the builder does provide the encasement for the lift. However, West Coast Elevators do have options for metal structure shafts that we can provide in addition to the lift.
When building you do have the option of constructing a lift provision, which will allow you to easily install a lift later if you so choose to do so.
A lift provision will help you save on future trade and construction work, as well as additional costs in finding a suitable location for your elevator. Enquire about retrofit solutions.
