CARPARX© VTS-1 Parking Lift Systems



The Harding Steel VTS-1 (Vehicle Transport System) is a first-of-its-kind hydraulic lift system designed for transporting vehicles from street level to subterranean parking areas below grade. Expressly designed for private residences and automobile showrooms, this machine is ideally suited for applications where valuable vehicles need to be safely transported to underground motorcourts or parkades for storage or display. The VTS-1 is a safe, versatile machine that can be customized to fit the most exacting applications.

CARPARX© VTS-1 is an attractive, cost effective way to move vehicles from one level to another. While not designed for commercial “vehicle elevator” applications or for large multi-family dwellings, it is extremely effective for low-volume vehicle transport applications in private home, estates, boutique hotels, or small multi-family dwellings. Floor-to-floor transport distances normally vary from 9′ to 12′. The VTS system is strictly an unmanned system and is not intended for transporting people or for transporting vehicles with passengers aboard.

Designed and built in North America, the Harding Steel CARPAR X© VTS-1 can be customized to meet the exacting demands of our client’s projects. Length of platforms, width of platforms, and vertical rise dimensions can be custom configured. Each VTS-1 system is build-to-order and installed by Harding Steel at each client location.
