Default post lift as elevator?

I'm looking for ideas on an elevator. I need at least 10' of lift. I am thinking of a two post vehicle lift. Not sure I can get the height. It will be outdoors. Any other ideas,

scissor lift pretty good idea, what ever it is I'd look for something that can be used for other purposes when not needed.

It is not for cargo and needs to be operable from the platform

seems like a scissor lift would be perfect. You can load yourself in the truck, and use it to pressure wash it down at the end of the day.

Does it need to be portable? Weight capacity? Attached to a vehicle, building, slab? Personal or commercial use? Sorry for the 20 ? I believe there is a scissor lift for sale on CL and D&D had one for sale recently, maybe the same unit,
