Brand X VRC Lift vs. AJAY VRC Lift

     All VRC lifts go up and down, but what you do not know and cannot see may change your opinion on what you buy. There are other brands, cheaper and lower quality lifts available. Some of these may require frequent replacement of parts or more maintenance down the road. These lifts will not provide you the cost efficiencies you will need to make a profit from your investment. Given the method in which our lifts have been professionally designed, manufactured, delivered and installed, our customers can rest assured that the AJAY Storage Lifts they purchase will be cost effective and fully constructed from start to finish for superior overall reliability for many years to come.
Brand X
 
AJAY VRC Lift
vs.


Brand X VRC Lift
Requires On Site Assembly of the Entire Lift

Many other VRC lift companies ship their units completely unassembled. This leaves the entire assembly at the mercy of jobsite personnel. Without knowing how much experience they may or may not have, they will have to attempt to meet all of the manufacture's critical assembly tolerances on site in order to provide a quality built lift.

AJAY VRC Lift
Shipped Fully Assembled from the Factory

AJAY Equipment takes pride in the fact that we ship our lifts factory-built from expensive and precise tooling fixtures. Each VRC storage lift is then meticulously tested to make sure all of the manufacturer’s critical design tolerances have been met prior to shipment.



Brand X VRC Lift
"Ladder" Mast Design Less Stable

Other types of VRC lifts have a “ladder frame” or “I-beam post” design. This design is structurally less stable and requires structural building for support. In most cases they are also cheaper to build.

AJAY VRC Lift
Free Standing Truss Design

AJAY Storage Lifts are free-standing. The exclusive truss mast design gives the lift the ability to be stand free without relying on structural building support.




Brand X VRC Lift
Requires Building Support

The installation company is required to add structural members which must be attached to your building walls. This will require your architect to design an additional support structure, adding material and labor cost for your contractor to build your typical metal or wood frame storage building.

AJAY VRC Lift
Small Anchor for Stablization

We fasten the upper mast to an existing wall for stability purposes only (not structural support).



Brand X VRC Lift
Requires Concrete Footings

Some Brand X lifts may even require special concrete pier type footings.

AJAY VRC Lift
Lift Design only Requires Concrete Anchoring

We level the outriggers and anchor them to an existing concrete slab.



Brand X VRC Lift
Limiting Overhead Bar

Some VRC Lifts have a height limiting six to seven foot overhead support bar assembled across the top of the platform or a height limiting car height of only 7 feet. This, in most cases, makes it difficult to load tall items onto the platform, like refrigerators or a couch. 

AJAY VRC Lift
Abundance of Room for Long Objects

Fortunately, AJAY Storage Lifts have fully enclosed cars that are between 8 to 9 feet tall which allow an abundance of room for long or tall objects with no limiting overhead support bars.



Brand X VRC Lift
Requires Penthouse

Some lift manufacturers also require a "penthouse" or raised roof section to be installed above the lift for servicing and maintenance access.

AJAY VRC Lift
AJAY's VRC Fits

AJAY lifts are specifically designed in a way to fit inside a standard two or three story building with no necessary major structural modifications to the building.

 



Brand X VRC Lift
Motor Mounted on Top of the Lift

Various VRC lift manufacturers designed their lifting drive motors, cables and pulleys to be mounted on top of the unit. This makes maintenance and repairs complicated and much more expensive!

AJAY VRC Lift
Motor Mounted on the Floor

AJAY Storage Lifts don’t have any of these inconveniences as our power units are mounted on the floor.


Brand X VRC Lift
Cylinders Put Extra Load on the Motor

Many of our competitor lifts use two double acting hydraulic cylinders which are pressurized in both directions. This bi-directional cylinder design uses the motor to both raise and lower the platform. Not only does our competitor’s design put extra wear on the motor, but it also requires many more parts to run two bi-directional cylinders.

AJAY VRC Lift
Cylinder Puts Half the Load on the Motor

AJAY VRC lifts are only pressurized in one direction which means our motor raises the platform and then uses gravity to lower it. Essentially, our cylinder design puts half the amount of wear on the motor compared to many of our competitors.



Brand X VRC Lift
Packing Kits Deteriorate

On top of this, each cylinder has 2 packing kits which amounts to 4 total packing kits per lift. Consequently, these extra wear parts will prove to be costly in the long run when additional maintenance is required. 

AJAY VRC Lift
Packing Kit Meant to Last

Our cylinder makes use of a single stationary packing kit which is of higher quality and meant to last. This distinctive design reduces the overall cost of maintaining the lift for many years to come.



Brand X VRC Lift
Requires More Parts

Not only does our competitor’s design put extra wear on the motor, but it may also require nearly 100 feet of hydraulic hose and fittings to run two bi-directional cylinders.

AJAY VRC Lift
Uses Less Parts and
50% Less Energy When Compared to Other VRC Lifts

AJAY Storage Lift only involves the use of a single acting (pressurized in only ONE direction) hydraulic cylinder, a few feet of braided aircraft type hydraulic hose and two fittings between the lifting cylinder and pump.


Brand X VRC Lift
Cables & Pulleys

Not only does the location of the motors and cables make these lifts difficult to repair, but over time, the cables that are utilized in these lifts will stretch, fray and need regular wear adjustments (hence all of the cable clamps). This design utilizing cables and pulleys invokes an irregular stretch of the cable, ultimately causing it to fray or even break under many circumstances.

AJAY VRC Lift
Heavy Duty, Long Lasting Chains

Our Storage Lifts use heavy duty roller chains which only need minimal if any maintenance at all. Unlike a cable system, these chains are extremely durable and practically never need replacement.



Brand X VRC Lift
Just a Mess

Self explanatory.

AJAY VRC Lift
We Pay Attention to Detail

Our crews pay special attention to detail throughout each installation whereas other brands may not.


Brand X VRC Lift
Painted Expanded Metal Cab

Other VRC lifts supply just painted sheet metal or expanded metal. Painted sheet metal will scratch, dent, rust, and quickly deteriorate.

AJAY VRC Lift
FRP Fully Enclosed Cab

Our FRP (fiberglass reinforced panel) fully enclosed cab will never rust or dent when scratched.
