Are You Planning To Purchase A Car Lift Soon?
Be Certain To Ask A Few Questions About Your Auto Lift Before You Make A PurchaseWhether you are a professional or an amateur car-lover, having your own car lift is a definite must for vehicle maintenance. With the help of an auto lift, performing routine maintenance is made much easier. In addition, if you are someone who has always dreamed of tearing a car down or rebuilding a beautiful ride, having a car lift can make the job much easier and more enjoyable.
Unfortunately, selecting the perfect car lift can often times be challenging. Once you start looking for places that sell lifts, you will find that there are dozens of different brands and styles available. This can make determining which one is the best for your needs a bit of a challenge.
In addition, not all lifts are created equally. Therefore, it is important to know what you are looking for before you start searching for the perfect car lift for your garage.
Some questions you should ask when purchasing an auto lift include…
- Was the lift manufactured in a facility that is ISO-9001 compliant?
- Does the lift offer customer-driven features and designs that were developed by accomplished engineers?
- Do the lifts undergo extensive testing and quality control procedures before they are put on the market?
- Are the lifts put together with computerized machines and certified welders within multi-axis machine centers?
The reality is that purchasing a car lift is a hefty investment. Therefore, you want to be certain the lift you purchase has undergone extensive testing to ensure its quality and safety. After all, you will be spending time beneath the auto lift and the car it is holding, which means a poor-quality lift can actually put your life at risk.
When browsing through the lifts that are available on the market, you should also consider your current as well as future needs. Purchasing a car lift that is able to accommodate more weight than you currently need may be a good idea if you anticipate working on heavier vehicles in the future. On the other hand, if this type of work is not in your plans, spending the extra money for one of these lifts may not be money well-spent.
In the end, purchasing the perfect auto lift means taking your time to research your options and to learn as much as you can about the products that are available. In doing so, you will be able to weigh the pros and cons of each - and you will be certain to select a lift that suits your budget as well as your needs.
"Hey ASE, here are some pics of my BendPak XPR-10A two post lift. WOW what a life saver this thing is. I never knew how enjoyable it was not killing yourself working on cars. It’s been good on my back! Let’s just say my friends can’t believe it when they walk in the garage. I installed everything myself with the help of a few friends standing up the posts and installing the top plate. Not a bad DIY project for the average handy man.
Thanks for the great support so far. I would definitely recommend ASE to anyone looking for a lift."
As this customer indicated, he was able to install his hoist with the help of a few friends. That is not uncommon. After all, if you're handy with tools, you should be able to handle this. But if you don't want to install it yourself, we can take care of that for you as well.
