The growing population has increased the demand for space, space for flats, houses, apartments, garages and parking spots. Due to this increased demand for space, contractors and realtors are forced to utilize as much space as possible. Since shelter is more important than cars, a good number of land areas have been used for apartment buildings and subdivisions thus leaving little space for garages and parking spots.
In urban cities, the restriction in land area for parking cars is evident. This land restriction has encouraged architects and contractors to think of a solution. The invention of a car elevator did not come as a surprise, but rather a fitting solution. In fact, a car elevator is not a new invention. For years, automobile shops have used this technology in order to lift and move cars.
It is just recently that this technology made its way to architectural structures. This form of elevator is commonly found in skyscrapers, apartment buildings, and condominiums. Unlike the traditional parking space that takes a lot of land area, the car elevator merely occupies a few square meters of the total area.
The car elevator found in buildings is also known as the full automatic electro hydraulic cable lift. This is similar to a typical elevator. Those that are found in automobile shops and are often used in lifting cars come in two types. The first type is the electro hydraulic scissors lift while the second type is the four post mechanical vehicle lift.
When it comes to lifting cars and saving parking space, nothing does it best than a car elevator. You do not have to live in the city to have this installed, if you feel like you need to save space then you can always have on installed in place of a garage. However, be reminded though that a car elevator do not come cheap.
