How to Minimize the Cost of Home Elevator Installation

by | Jan 11, 2023 | Lifts, Elevators

Did you know that you can install a fully functioning home elevator that eliminates the cost of constructing a shaft, a machine room and a pit? With RAM Elevators + Lifts, we offer homeowners indoor home elevators and outdoor home lifts that require minimal installation and eliminate the expensive cost of renovating your home. Read on to learn more about how we designed industry-leading home elevators and lifts that eliminate the unnecessary costs of installation.

RAM Features

With every home elevator built at RAM Elevators + Lifts, we incorporate the following RAM features that minimize the cost of home elevator installation:

Machine Room-Less Design (MRL)

Home elevators typically require building an entirely separate room for the machines operating the elevator. Not only does that increase the cost of construction, but it also increases the cost of maintenance, as these machines often require regular hydraulic oil changes and maintenance. At RAM Elevators + Lifts, we have designed our home elevators to be completely self-contained and compact, without the need for a machine room. This smart feature allows you to install a RAM home elevator without worrying about money, space or time.

Limited or No Pit Required 

Long gone are the days when lengthy excavations and money-consuming constructions are required to prepare for your home elevator installation. You can now install a RAM home elevator with a limited 2” pit for flush access or a pitless build with a 2” ramp. Depending on whether or not you have the space for a pit, RAM Elevators + Lifts can seamlessly install your home elevator with ease. Our limited or no pit requirement allows us to decrease the cost of home elevator installation drastically.

All-Electric Drive System

Our proprietary All-Electric Drive system is not only powerful and whisper-quiet, but it also eliminates unnecessary costs of installation. Instead of building a machine room for our drive system, it is effortlessly mounted on top of the car to save space and money. It also requires no hydraulic fluids to operate, which minimizes the cost of maintenance as well.

Low Overhead Clearance

Finally, with our low overhead clearance feature, you no longer need to worry about making space or tearing down walls to install a home elevator. We are able to install your home elevator into a standard 92” top-floor ceiling height without the need for a complete home renovation. Our space-efficient design is built to offer homeowners a quick and cost-effective installation.
