We have served and supplied products to many, many customers over the entire twenty plus years we have been in business. We’ve supplied automotive lifts and auto shop equipment to car museums, classic car collectors, gear heads as well as full bore car buffs. We’ve also supplied garage equipment to the typical shade tree mechanic, as well as the professional body shops, auto mechanics, industrial fleet services, military and state and local governments, as well as commercial and corporate entities.
Another type of customer that we are gaining popularity with is the popular social media gear heads. These guys have a huge following. Don’t underestimate their influence and reach.
TJ Hunt is one such social media influencer. His specialty is modifying popular cars with cool gear and wraps, and posting videos of the process on You Tube. He’s shown some very cool modifications on his You Tube channel, and has posted over 600 videos over the past few years. At the time of this post, he already has over 617,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel. That’s quite impressive! It’s all about expressing yourself through your automobile. Most modifications are very cool, but some modifications may not be to everyone’s liking. But that’s OK.
You can check out the video below that he recently posted of the 2 post lift he purchased from us. It covers the installation of it. Obviously, we don’t recommend climbing on the lift while a car is on it as he does. He gives a shout out to ASEdeals.com around the 4:15 mark of this video.
Anybody with this kind of audience is worth making note of, and we did. When TJ needed a new car lift for his garage, he did a lot of research, and took some time before deciding on the right supplier to contact. After doing his research, he knew who to choose. He contacted ASE Deals because of our reputation and our experience. We set him up with our BendPak XPR-10AS-LP two post lift. This is the asymmetric two post lift, with a clear floor, and the popular low profile arms. The low profile arms are popular with the folks who modify their cars to make them lower to the ground. These arms feature a slightly lower pad height, but more importantly, the arms stay at the lower profile further back along the arms, thus allowing you to reach deeper within the framework of the automobile, at those frame jacking points that you may not be able to reach with the standard arms.
This car hoist is one of our most popular models because of it’s many features. Not only can it position an auto in an asymmetric setting, but if need be, it can also position the car symmetric. This adds a layer of versatility you can’t find on most lifts out there. Additional popular features include dual width settings, wide or narrow, and it is also available in an extra tall version. It also features screw pad adapters, so you can infinitely adjust the height of the frame contact pads.
Contact us today if you would like more details on this, or any other hoist in our product line. We will be sure to fit you with the best model and type for your application, and at the lowest price guaranteed. Plus, we can sell, service, and install anywhere in the USA.
Besides his popular You Tube channel, TJ also has a popular Facebook page, as well as a website featuring a product line of gear like Tee shirts and sun glasses, as well as a popular line of car finishing and detailing products, like shampoo , and car polish. He’s quite the young entrepreneur. If you’re into tricking out your cool ride, this channel is for you. This tuner car stuff is for serious car buffs. He has lots of young followers, and we are certain you’ll be hearing much more about him in the future.
We recently had the opportunity to visit a true gem in upstate New York. The Rochester Auto Museum is located in downtown Rochester New York, and offers muscle car and classic car fans the ability to view some real classic American cars. We were fortunate enough to supply them with several of our BendPak HD-9XW 4 post car lifts for storage and for servicing their fine automobiles. The collection of vehicles is always changing, as they buy and sell cars frequently, but there is a common theme among all the autos in the collection – lots of one of a kind, or limited model muscle cars, with lots of Mopar autos sprinkled in.
We also had the great pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with Bob Bartosiewicz, the owner. He is an avid car collector, and has a passion for only the finest automobiles, concentrating mainly from the classic era of the late 60’s to early 1970’s. He was such a gracious and generous host, and took the time to inform us of all of the particulars about each vehicle. His passion comes through right away as he describes the features of all the great cars, and we were in awe of the collection. Let’s just say – He knows his stuff!
You can view Bob in our video that we shot from inside this incredible museum below –
Check out this old classic below. If it looks familiar, it should. It’s the red 1958 Plymouth Fury. One of only 12 that were used in the cult favorite Stephen King movie – Christine. This one was the actual Director’s car. So it is in pristine condition. That’s the owner Bob Bartosiewicz next to her.
Another gem from this amazing collection is the 1971 convertible Plymouth Hemi Cuda dubbed Sno White. This is one of one, and is probably the most valuable automobile of the collection. He just purchased it earlier this year.
Below you can see several classic vehicles on car lifts. We supplied two BendPak HD-9XW four post lifts to the museum for them to use for both servicing their vehicles, as well as storing one car over another. No car collection like this would be complete without at least one of these vital pieces of shop equipment.
Below you can see a panoramic view of the garage. They have 3 beautiful SuperBirds with wings, numerous GTO’s and Cudas, Dodge Challengers and Chargers, Road Runners, Ford Mustangs and much more.
This collection must be seen to be believed. This museum is packed full with American muscle, perfect for anybody who appreciates bygone days of true passion for classic car design.
The Rochester Auto Museum is located at 7 1/2 Rome St. in Rochester, NY and we recommend you call them to schedule an appointment to visit. Phone number is 585-261-3864
Who wouldn’t want to have an automotive shop in the Bahamas? As long as there is air conditioning in the garage! We recently sold a laundry list of automotive shop equipment to a customer in Nassau, in New Providence in the beautiful islands of the Bahamas.
This new customer purchased many different pieces of automotive equipment, including transmission jacks, bearing presses, car battery jump starters, floor jacks and many other items. Most notably, two pieces that any auto shop worth it’s salt could not do without – a couple of 2 post lifts and an air compressor.
The two post lifts were an easy choice for the shop owner. They chose the BendPak XPR-10A automotive lift for it’s features, versatility, quality, and value. It is our most popular model. It offers a wide range of features, such as the ability to be set up at a wide, or a narrow configuration, and also has a rare ability to position the auto symmetrically, if it won’t balance out properly in an asymmetric setting. Add the quality of construction, such as taller lift carriages, superior arm restraints, along with double diameter equalizer cable pulley sheaves, and you’ve got a premium car lift at a very reasonable price. All this, and it’s even certified by the highly respected Automotive Lift Institute.
You’re going to need an air compressor in any professional garage. and who better to supply your automotive shop air compressor than BelAire? These guys are the best at it, and that’s why we recommended the model 218V. This is a 5 HP compressor with an 80 gallon tank. It’s made in America while so many others aren’t. Plus, there is a 2 year warranty on every component. Along with that, they have over 350 service centers across the country.
The customer is a new auto shop that specializes in servicing European cars. European automobiles are very popular there. The shop is called Automotechs Parts & Service on Wulff Rd. The owner has a long and prosperous history of servicing the people of the Caribbean islands of the Bahamas. Here’s what the owner, Chris Lowe had to say about his experience with ASE Deals –
“I’ve known of Automotive Service Equipment for several years now as other places across Nassau have recommended you. When we needed to outfit our new shop, it was an easy decision as you offer most of what I needed and your reputation is outstanding. Everything arrived in a timely manner and at a reasonable price.”
The MD-6XP Mid Rise Scissor Lift by BendPak is a hugely popular car lift. As a matter of fact, they are one of our top sellers. And there’s a good reason why too. First of all, it’s portable. You can move it around your shop or garage with ease. It does not have to be bolted to the concrete. It takes up very little floor space. Plus, It offers access to most of the automobile, including the tires, and it’s extremely versatile. It can handle a wide variety of autos. Plus, it is popular not only with the home / do it yourself crowd, but it also is popular with the body shops and brake shops too. The best part? It’s made by BendPak. They are a true leader if the car lift market. And few companies are better at it than them.
The latest customer picture is from David Pinard out of Leigh Acres, Florida. Sure, David uses it for his car, but he has also found another use for it as you can see in the picture below. He also uses it to service his motorcycle and other equipment like lawn tractors as well. Here’s what David said to us about his lift –
“I received my lift last month. I am enjoying it. I thought I would send a photo of it in use. I hope you enjoy, I know that I am”.
You use your imagination and get the best lift for your needs. There are lots of choices.
Check out these pics below. Any gearhead would appreciate viewing these pictures. The first image is of our Dannmar D7 four post lift. This customer purchased 5 of these lifts from us. As you can see, it is being used to store one car over another. That is a typical use for this lift. It is extremely popular with our home hobby customers, or anybody looking to free up some valuable garage floor space. But it’s not just a storage lift. It is also a great service lift. We love any pictures we get with racing cars.
The picture below that is the same customer showing off his BendPak HDSO-14LSX open front, four post alignment lift. This customer has a thriving commercial auto shop and one of the many lifts they purchased from us is this beauty. They also purchased a BendPak two post lift, along with another Bend Pak four post lift. What makes this HDSO-14LSX alignment lift so special? It is a full featured alignment lift by one of the premier lift manufacturers in the business. It offers great features like an open front, meaning there is no cross member, so when the technician wants to get in between the runways to perform work, he won’t need to duck to get there. This means no bumps on the head, as well as a speedier job. We all know this formula – Time = Money.
This customer won a car battery jump starter by Booster Pac just for simply submitting his photos. You can too. We run a drawing of all the photos submitted. All you need to do is email the pictures along with your order number, and perhaps a few comments if you like. You need to have purchased the lift within the last year. You will get one entry per each lift. There is no other criteria. It’s that simple.
Here’s what Leonard Vahsholtz said to us when he submitted his pictures –
“We have Purchased many lifts from ASE, and have been extremely satisfied not only with the quality of the
lifts, but also with the service. On top of that, I know I will always get the best deal”.
Woodland Park, CO
While our customer base is mainly here in the good old USA, we also sell lifts and automotive service equipment to auto shops, home hobbyists, gear heads and weekend warriors all over the world. One location that we enjoy selling to is the beautiful islands of the Bahamas. Actually, the Bahamas were where Columbus first landed in 1492. There are actually more than 3000 islands that make up the Bahamas, but the most densly populated is the island of New Providence. This island features the capitol city of Nassau. Nassau has been a huge tourist attraction for many years.
This week’s customer is German Auto Works from the city of Nassau in the Bahamas. We had the opportunity to visit with them recently. They just opened a brand new auto shop that specializes in European automobiles.
They actually purchased several BendPak Lifts from us. They bought an XPR9 floorplate two post lift, and an XPR10A clearfloor two post lift. The clearfloor model is an asymmetric lift. The asymmetric style of lifts allows you to get your door opened wider after you have parked the car in between the posts. Most technicians prefer this style of lift these days. The added benefit of the BendPak design is that it can also position the auto symmetric as well. This lift is truly the best of both worlds, and is yet another example of why BendPak is the premier name in car lifts. The XPR9 is a floorplate model, meaning that it will fit under shorter ceiling heights.. No matter what you need, BendPak and ASEDeals.com have got you covered. If you have the opportunity to visit Nassau, Bahamas, we highly recommend it.
Check out this sweet ride on our BendPak XPR9 two post lift. This picture was send in to us by a customer.
The customer is Susan Ashborn from Bristol, CT. She purchased this lift from us recently and send in some photos to us to show off her lift and her beautiful car. This is what people do. They like to share images for their pet project cars along with one of our car lifts.
The XPR-9 two post lift is a floorplate style hoist. Every two post lift has equalizer cables as well as hydraulic lines that must run across from one column to the other. They need to place them in one of two locations, either along the floor, under a plate of steel, (hence the term “Floorplate”) or at the top. When they run at the top, they are called clear floor lifts.
Clear floor lifts typically stand at about 12 feet tall, so you would need to have adequate ceiling height. If you don’t, you would need to get the floorplate model. The floor plate sysle lifts are made for shops with ceilings that are too low for the clear floor lifts. Most folks tend to prefer the clearfloor lifts provided they have enough ceiling height. They prefer a clearfloor model because the floor plate acts like a speed bump. It make it difficult to roll items across the floor underneath the lift. Things like transmission jacks, tool carts, oil drains, etc. are difficult to get over the plate. It still can be done. The plate is only 1.5″ high in most cases, and it is ramped up on each end. But it is more difficult. Another key difference is that the clearfloor 2 post lift has a shut off bar at the top. The switch gets activated when the roof of the car hits it. Of course, a floor plate model does not have a shut off bar at the top, so the user must monitor the vehicle as it’s being raised to make sure it doesn’t go into the ceiling above.
After this brief two post lift tutorial, you hopefully have a better understanding of the two different styles. There are many other factors involved in choosing a twio post lift. You can find them in other past posts on this blog.
Hey folks – Here we go again. We’ve got some really cool new pictures for you to take a gander at. If you like classic cars, then these pictures are for you. We’re partial to the old Ford pickup ourselves. These pictures were submitted by a customer by the name of Stan Misraji out of Burbank, CA. He ordered a Bend Pak HD9STX four post lift. This model is a 9,000 lb. capacity auto lift that features an extra 1 foot of lifting height, along with an extra 2 feet of runway length. These dimensions can be important when you want to park a taller vehicle underneath, as show in the image with the Ford truck underneath. It can also be important for you if you need to park a longer vehicle up top. He won a Clore Automotive JNC4000 Jump N Carry jump starter just for simply submitting these pictures to us. Not a bad deal for him. And not a bad deal for you. We will have another drawing next month. We choose a winner randomly from among the many customers who submit images of their recently purchased car lifts. That’s all you have to do. Purchase a lift, send us a picture or two, along with your order number, and then wait to see if you win.
Here’s what Stan Misraji said –
“You were very helpful and made the experience easy. I was greatly impressed with the lift, delivery time as well as the installation. Your installers were extremely professional and accomplished the installation in a fast time frame. Thank you again.”
Here we go again. We constantly receive new pictures from customers each week showing us their new lifts that they have purchased from us. And we love getting them. It gives them a sense of pride in showing off their new lift as well as their sweet ride, or rides. And it gives us the opportunity to get feedback from them. We want to hear all feedback – positive or negative. We need to hear from you. It just simply helps us to serve you better.
This post features a picture and testimonial from a customer from West Hampton, MA. He purchased a BendPak XPR-10A two post lift.This is an asymmetric lift that also has the capability to position the vehicle symmetrically as well if needed. This feature comes in handy when you have a rear heavy vehicle, like a car with the engine in the rear, or a service van with lots of equipment in the back, as well as extra long trucks, like a crew cab dually.
Here’s what he wrote –
Hey Guys, My car is in the air! Great lift. No issues with install. Please feel free to use any or all pictures of my XPR-10A 10,000 lb. lift. Thanks again.
West Hampton, MA
Guess what we’ve been up to? You’ve seen us provide automotive equipment to many Hollywood movie sets, including –
- The Taking of Pelham 123
- The Sorceror’s Apprentice
- The Other Guys
- The Green Hornet
- Men In Black III
Well our latest contribution to tinseltown is a pair of Hein Werner heavy duty, low profile transmission jacks. When the producers of the remake of the cult classic 80’s hit film RoboCop need some shop equipment, they knew who to come to. After all, MGM and Columbia Pictures came to us for many other previous big hits because they know they can count on us for reliable equipment. We have a reputation of supplying them with the finest products in the industry in a timely manner, and we offer the support they demand.
The production is actually taking place in Toronto, Canada by OCP Productions Ltd. The production just began in August and the film wont be completed until August of 2013. The cast includes some big Hollywood stars such as Gary Oldman, Samuel Jackson and Michael Keaton as the bad guy. The director is Jose Padilha. The original hit was extremely popular and starred Peter Weller.
Below is concept artwork of the potential character, but is not necessarily what he will look like in the film. It’s just too soon to have any details. But hey, we had to throw some kind of picture up there.
