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 Standard ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011. Car lift manufacturer models must also:
BendPak Meets ANSI StandardsBeware 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.
"I spent months trying to decide on the correct lift, the side by side comparison convinced me the Bend Pak was the right choice. Assembly was accomplished with nothing more than basic hand tools, a few dollies, an engine hoist, and 20 minutes of a friend's time. I had the lift assembled and running in 2 days, this includes running power to it. When I had an issue, you resolved it right away. Purchasing the lift from ASE Deals was easy and the lift arrived 10 days after placing the order."
We find that the folks who deliberate the most are the ones who most often choose ASEdeals and BendPak. Just comparing our 17 year reputation to others on the various car enthusiast forums, and other on-line sources should give you a good clue as to our reputation. Along with that, BendPak's reputation is up there at the apex of all lift manufacturers as well with over 45 years in the industry.
