Purchase Auto Lift with Greater Confidence

Car lift Construction and engineering has changed significantly over the past several decades. One of the major reasons is because of the organization called the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI). They began testing automotive lifts and awarding certifications for them as early as 1945. Nobody offers as much authority on the subject as much as they do. They have a contract with (ETL), Interteck Testing Services. ETL is an independent lab and provides testing services with an independent, and non-biased perspective.  They are known for their integrity and are recognized internationally and in the US by OSHA and the Department of Labor. 

In order to receive the ALI Gold Seal of Approval, auto lifts must comply with and conform with the American National ali-certification-gold-label.jpgStandard ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011. Car lift manufacturer models must also:

  • Be listed by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory in accordance with ANSI/UL 201 and CAN/CSA C22.2 No. 68 (for installation in Canada).
  • Comply with electrical standards where applicable.
  • Verify their production facility meets quality control requirements.
  • Provide comprehensive and complete instructions and manuals, as well as lift operator safety documents.

    BendPak Meets ANSI Standards

    Beware of other manufacturers who claim their lifts meet ANSI standards then tell you how they had an independent lab test them. Most likely, the labs were hired directly by the manufacturer. Only the leading lift manufacturer's auto lifts are tested and certified by ALI and ETL. When you purchase an ALI certified lift, you can be confident that it meets or exceeds strict minimum standards for safety and quality. Most BendPak and Dannmar models are ALI-certified, while select Workhorse models are ALI-certified. Buy with confidence. 


    MD6XP for Low Ceiling Height

    "When we needed an auto lift for one of our bays in our service department, we decided to go with ASE and their BendPak MD6XP lift. This lift is perfect for performing brake jobs and other repairs on the side of our garage that has limited ceiling height. We plan on getting several more of these lifts soon. And the personal service that Automotive Service Equipment provides is second to none."

    The Bahamas is our favorite country (outside of the USA) and is a popular travel destination. Beyond tourism, It has a thriving banking industry. This combination has made it a rapidly growing economy, and to that end, it's population is also expanding. When the economy grows and population expands, citizens drive more automobiles. That means more service centers and other types of transportation related businesses. That's where we come in. We have been supplying all kinds of products to the great businesses in the Bahamas for years now, and the rest of the Caribbean, including Trinidad, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Haiti. Our reputation has grown there largely by word of mouth, and referrals. Word has gotten out that we take good care of our great customers. And we're not going to stop now.
