A VRC lift is a large, installed mechanical device that enables you to move heavy materials vertically from one floor level (or mezzanine) to another. VRC lifts are safe, cost-effective, and efficient alternatives to using forklifts or manual labor to relocate goods.
The “VRC” in VRC lift stands for “vertical reciprocating conveyor.” VRC lifts are sometimes also referred to as “freight lifts,” “vertical material lifts,” or simply “material lifts.”
This is a great question. When you entrust Martin Vertical Storage with your business, you aren’t just buying equipment from a seller. You’re also gaining access to the high level of knowledge and technical expertise that our professionals bring to every customer relationship.
Martin Vertical Storage will work with your business to help you determine which VRC lift will best meet your needs. We’ll also install your lift and make sure that it's in good working order once it’s in place. And you’ll have the consultative support of our team for the life of your lift.
We only sell mechanical lifts manufactured by our partner, Custom Industrial Products (CIP). All CIP lifts are made in the USA.
The cost difference between installing an elevator and installing a VRC lift is substantial. VRC lifts cost a fraction of what elevators do.
The reason for this is that VRC lifts are designed to move materials, not passengers.
Because they don’t carry passengers, VRC lifts generally don’t need to meet the more stringent national elevator codes. This means that both the initial price and the maintenance costs of a VRC lift will be lower than that of an elevator, though they are just as effective at moving goods from one floor level to another.
The initial cost of a VRC lift is less than that of an elevator. But your company will also save money over time by investing in a VRC lift.
VRC lifts require less maintenance than elevators, which must adhere to a stricter code because of the designation that allows them to carry passengers.
And mechanical VRC lifts, like those available from Martin Vertical Storage, are less costly to maintain than hydraulic lifts. Mechanical lifts are designed to run continuously when properly maintained, unlike hydraulic lifts, which require downtime due to the physics of hydraulic-driven lifting.
Yes. Every VRC lift sold by Martin Vertical Storage meets or exceeds the nationally recognized safety standards that govern conveyors as detailed in ANSI/ASME B20.1. Proper installation by lift professionals is required, however, for a VRC lift to meet this standard.
Consider the safety benefits to using a VRC lift to move materials from one floor level to another over the alternatives:
Overall, VRC lifts require less manpower than other methods of relocating goods from one floor to another. This means that productivity and efficiency are more likely to go up in a facility that uses a VRC lift.
A host of different businesses could benefit from the installation of a VRC lift. The list includes warehouses and distribution centers, automotive dealerships and parts inventories, factories, retail stores and wholesalers, and restaurants and hotels, to name just a few.
Schools, libraries, and other public institutions will also see gains from the safety and efficiency that VRC lifts bring.
Practically any facility that needs to transport materials vertically can utilize a VRC lift. If you're wondering how a VRC lift could work for you, consult Martin Vertical Storage.
