Keep your priorities fron and center. Home elevator upgrades such as elevator cab wall finishes come in a broad range of prices.
Set your priority elevator needs and research anticipated expenses
To save money and time, don’t move elevator hoistway walls or mechanical rooms in the original plans, unless it will greatly improve the space.
Avoid changing your mind once your home elevator is ordered. Comparison shop and be prepared. Custom elevators once in production can be costly to halt production for any changes.
Have a clear set of home elevator specifications before comparison shopping: to be sure to compare exactly the same elevator features and warranties.
For turnkey home elevators which includes hoistway construction, set aside contingency money 10% - 15% percent of the project.
