New Zealand’s experts in house lifting
House Lifters is the only New Zealand company providing a complete residential lifting, sliding and levelling service. We lift residential houses with industry-leading equipment to create a safe environment for work to take place. Whether you need a new basement, want to avoid coastal erosion or just get to higher ground for a better view, we’ll help you find the perfect solution.
Each lift and slide is designed and calculated by one of House Lifters’ engineers. There’s no limit to the size or weight House Lifters can lift or slide, and no site is too technical. Our unique, Modular Synchronised Positioning System was custom-designed by engineers for even the most complex projects, including sites where access would normally be very difficult.
For foundation work, we lift and level the house (or perform a low lift and slide), demolish the foundations, dig out and improve the ground, build the new foundations, lower the house and fix it onto the foundations.
high & low lifts
In the case of a low lift, the house is lifted 1.5 metres high, whereas during a high lift, we move it to 3 metres. A high lift provides much easier, safer access and room for our team, trucks and diggers to demolish and excavate underneath. We use beams for obstruction-free access, and our ingenious Ground Screw Anchoring System for bracing. A high lift also provides the option of adding a storey underneath – e.g. a basement conversion.
