Home elevator prices for installed vacuum elevators from Home Elevators of Austin begin at $35,000. But residential elevator installation pricing varies greatly due to your home’s architecture and the types of materials used in your home. For example, custom woodwork that must be matched costs more than painted trim. Pricing related to those elevator installation services are specific to the home and design preferences, so pricing those requires a site visit.
Why We Can’t Give Specific Prices
We wish it was simple to publish our home elevator installation prices so you could easily shop online. But even with the simpler vacuum elevator installation that does not require shaft construction, pit construction, machine room construction, and many other costs that make traditional hydraulic or traction elevators expensive and intrusive to install, it is impossible to know what your home will require.
Also, your selection of elevator options for functionality and finishes also greatly affect the final cost.
Even with new construction where we receive professionally prepared specifications prior to installation, the final pricing can be affected by changes along the way made by builders, homeowners, architects, or designers.
We know that no one is too excited to invite salespeople into their homes. But the in-home elevator installation consultation is necessary so that we can determine appropriate installation sites and help you understand the pros and cons of each. At that time, we can also show you various functional and design options you may select from for your vacuum elevator.
We are not asking for an invitation to your home so to upsell or strong-arm you…quite the contrary. We want to carefully discuss your mobility needs and how they fit in your home’s architecture:
- How will you use your vacuum elevator?
- Have you considered future mobility needs such as using a wheelchair?
- Where is the best elevator installation location in your home that looks great, does not impede foot traffic, and offers convenient access on all levels?
”The major advantages other than the obvious, is being able to get heavy loads up and down with minimal effort. Luggage, ladders, small pieces of furniture, etc., can now be moved together with my bulk, which has been a problem with bad knees. It can be considered a boon for my wife, who with her COPD and Osteo- arthritis, who can take advantage of the seat.John Parente
