Designed specifically to transport automobiles between parking levels, car elevators help minimize the need for large ramps. They also allow architects and designers to create more stylistic structures that blend into the surrounding cityscape, harmonizing office buildings and apartments with their parking garages.
When a driver pulls into the entrance lane, an attendant presses a button to instruct the mechanism where to park. A dolly on rubber tires then rolls under the car.
Increased Parking Space
A car parking elevator is an ideal solution for residential garages and other multi-level parking structures. It allows cars to be transported vertically between levels without the need for a ramp, which takes up space and can create safety hazards for occupants of the vehicle.
Adding a vehicle lift to your home or business can make it easier to store and access your car, while providing an attractive finishing touch to any space. It can also increase your parking capacity, giving you the flexibility to park two full-sized vehicles in the same footprint.

r lifts cars and trucks to and from parking floors, allowing more vehicles to be stored in parking garages and car lots. This equipment is perfect for auto dealerships, motorsports facilities, classic car storage facilities, and private garages.
In high-rise condominium buildings, car elevators are a common feature for residents to drive their own cars into their homes. Real estate agents say that these upgrades are popular because they add a “wow factor” that sets homes apart from their competition.
Residential car elevators are a great way to make it easier and safer for homeowners to park their cars. In addition, they are a great way to add value and curb appeal to a home. A remodeled garage can increase the resale value of a property, and a high-tech automobile lift is sure to catch the eye of potential buyers.
Automobile elevators are also used in commercial parking structures such as 4S shops and car showrooms. These commercial elevators are typically larger and have a higher weight capacity than residential car elevators. They offer increased space efficiency and can be designed to meet the specific needs of the customer. They can be configured with a side opening, split opening or telescoping opening door. They can be built to operate with either a hydraulic or electric system.
Automobile elevators offer a great deal of durability, making them a smart choice for apartment buildings, office parking areas and even home garages. These lifts are constructed from harding steel, offering a deluxe appearance and providing an added level of luxury to any building.
These elevators are available in a variety of platform rise, capacity and width options. They can also be outfitted with a number of different types of doors, such as side opening, split opening or telescoping opening.
The handrails and trim on an automobile elevator are typically made from stainless steel, but other materials may be used based on the desired design and appearance. Below the actual ceiling of the car, a suspended ceiling is often hung to contain lighting mechanisms above plastic diffuser panels.
Car Elevators provide a safe way to move vehicles in garages, showrooms and homes. They have many safety features built into them such as interlocking doors and backup power supplies. They can also be equipped with fire safety features such as fire-rated doors and smoke suppression systems.
Inspect the lift daily and never operate if it is damaged or broken. Always check lifting points and adapters for damage or corrosion, and remove any items in the vehicle that could affect the normal center of gravity of the lift. It is also a good idea to position high reach vehicle support stands under the vehicle before raising it. Make sure the lift locking device is engaged.
Lastly, ensure all technicians receive proper training on the lift. Train them on the lift manufacturer's instructions and warning labels, as well as the ALI publications "Quick Reference Guide, Vehicle Lifting Points for Frame-Engaging Lifts" and "Safety Tips."
