Tech startup, Lift, rents lift for $40K
Tech startup Lift rents a lift for the price of a new car for up to $40,000 a month.
The company’s founder and CEO, Ryan McAlpine, told Business Insider he wanted to offer an alternative to traditional lift rental services because it was more convenient and more affordable.
He also said the company’s lift was the best value he had ever seen.
The company uses a fleet of three lift trucks to deliver a payload of 200 pounds to its offices in downtown Chicago.
Each truck has its own driver and the company takes care of the rest.
McAlpenis said he could afford to rent a larger vehicle because he was able to raise money through a crowdfunding campaign.
Lift says it will take around 20 minutes to deliver the lift, and you pay for it with a credit card or PayPal.
You also pay for a parking spot at the building.
The service is available in six states: Illinois, New York, New Jersey, California, Illinois, and Massachusetts.
McAlpine said the goal of the company is to provide people with a safe and convenient way to transport their equipment without having to drive.
He said he believes the service is just as valuable if not more so because it offers a better experience.
He said people would be more likely to accept a lift if they were comfortable taking a trip by car or on foot, and they wouldn’t have to worry about safety.
He added that people would also have more money left over after paying the rental fee, since they can keep the lift.
The company has also partnered with several private companies to offer its lift services.
McAleese said Lift’s rental fee is “well below what I normally would charge,” and he also said he had not paid the rent for two months, which was due to the company not having enough funding.
McAleese added that his company has received funding from several angel investors, including one from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, and that he will be expanding the service as he grows the company.
