Vertical Material Lifts

A Vertical Material Lift is a lift that will move materials from one elevation to another.  These vertical material lifts are a cost effective alternative to higher priced freight elevators.  Since these lifts are not elevators and transport material only, elevator safety codes do not apply to this line of products.

CIP’s line of mechanical vertical lifts can be utilized to transport material and products of all shapes, sizes and weights between two or more levels. With platforms ranging from 24 x 24 inches to over 30 x 30 feet and travel heights to over 100 feet, our team can design and manufacture the best lift for your specific needs. If one of our standard models doesn’t fit the bill, Our engineers have designed and built 1,000’s of custom lifts for a variety of specialized uses.

We understand that every application is unique and that is why we analyze every pertinent detail from the material being moved to the environment of the job site.

Who Needs Vertical Lifts?

Any business or person that needs to move material between multiple levels, whether those levels are basements, mezzanines, lofts or other previously inaccessible space, will benefit from the use of a material lift.


PML Series

As the entry level lift in the PM series of lifts, the PML is anything but “basic” and deserves to be highlighted. These economical modular units are simply the best value, safest, easiest installing, and fastest shipped of all our standard VRCs.


Pallet Master (PM) Series

CIP pioneered the PM Series Modular Lift. With pre-built section and pre-wiring capabilities, these units can be installed in a fraction of the time of regular VRCs. With the PM Series lift, you get the best security and safety for less.


Straddle (S) Series

The S Series Straddle Lift is the most common lift used. Its simple design is robust, reliable and affordable. Whether you are transporting small boxes or large palletized loads, the straddle lift will do the job.


Cantilever (C) Series

The C Series Cantilever Lift is most commonly used for low overhead applications or tall travel heights. This chain drive lift offers a 90 degree load/unload option and can handle heavy loads.


Four Post (FP) Series

CIP’s FP Series Four Post Lifts are designed for moving large heavy loads. The capabilities or these lifts are virtually limitless. The design is scalable to very large platform sizes capable of transporting forklifts, cars, or palletized loads.


Dual Mast (DM) Series

The DM Series Dual Mast Lift is designed for moving large heavy loads where there is low overhead clearance or tall travel heights. They excel with loads that are longer than they are deep and is scalable to transport forklifts, cars, and/or palletized loads.
