These kinds of parking are going to be common in coming times in our own buildings.

Shan2nu had posted about a jack-failure he once seen and clicked. Imagine if it happened here - both his Ferrari's would be in deep trouble specially the red one.

Yeah, its "very innovative" right up intil the hydraulic line springs a leak, then it becomes "very expensive"

Normally in case of an airjack failure the upper car does not come down. then you gotta either use the manula override (hand crank) or call the service center.

We used this when we lived in CA. It is reasonably common in CA. The garage must have a 12ft (pref 14 ft) height though.

I have seen adverts of this in the bakc of Overdrive but wonder if ithas been installed in Mumbai. I think is it an excellent suggestion as it almost doubles the parking space (7 spaces wil beoome 12). Ideal if you have multiple cars and use some only on weekends.

Default Car Mini-Lift

We have a mini lift system in our aprtment for cars.
Basically, anyone who wants parking for 2 cars in our basement parking was provided with a mini lift system.

Apparently, this is the firt time this system has been provided in any apartment in Bangalore . It is made by a Bangalore company called Armatic Engineering (they make material handling systems).


The system does not use hydraulics, but is completely mechanical (driven by a threaded rod). Even abrupt loss of power will not make the car platform fall down. It is driven by a 3 HP motor. Yes, it is quite noisy when it works, but only takes about 2 minutes to lower or raise.

The system can handle up to 1.5 tons load on the lifting platform.

It costs about Rs 1.5 lakh to install, and you need a 3-phase power connection.

If your garage/basement has sufficient height (i.e clear height of 15 feet), this is a great system.

There have been trials taken on this kind of a system in Mumbai too. There are talks of using such kind of parking for the Nariman Point area but as usual the Red Tape and the Govt dilly dallying has put the whole scene on the back burner.

Ps- Isnt there this kind of a lift at Bandra (only for 2 cars) , in the Temptation parking lot ?

I have seen this in use in Bangalore, Manipal center and another couple a buildings around Bangalore way back in 2001. Definitely innovative, but the guy who's car is elevated will have a tough time to move his car at any other time apart from late in the evening hehe.

NC, where is this Temptation? this system could really be useful to park your second car above your first (or third above your second) etc. This way you have to choose which car(s) you and your family regularly use.
