As of September 2014, a commercial elevator costs between $75,000 and $150,000 for larger buildings and between $20,000 and $28,000 for buildings with two or three floors. The size, number of floors it can go to, basic design, and safety features all affect how much an elevator costs. Installation fees and maintenance fees are two other things that affect the price of commercial elevators.
The cost of an elevator can also be affected by how it is powered and how it works. AC, hydraulic, and DC systems are all common types of systems that make things work. When it comes to lifting, elevators that are powered by hydraulics work very well. The stage of construction when the elevator is installed is another thing that affects how much it costs. Installing an elevator after a building is done being built costs more than putting one in while the building is being built.
Commercial elevators that are made to order can cost more or less than standard commercial elevators. Some of the things that affect the price of custom-built elevators are the type and amount of materials used, the design of the elevator, the total capacity, and the cost of maintenance. Depending on the plan and what the client wants, a qualified contractor can give a detailed list of how much the commercial elevators will cost.
