ASE Supplies Car Lift to Hemmings Classic Car Museum

February 18th, 2018

Who isn’t familiar with Hemmings Motor News? It’s one of the premier publications dedicated to the topic of car collecting, classic cars, and car enthusiast interests. The publication started in 1954 by Ernest Hemmings and quickly rose to prominence and popularity. Nobody in the business has more clout. It is the oldest and the largest of it’s type.

Over the years, Hemmings has come out with various other magazines, all catering to other specialized areas of the car enthusiast interests. Publications include Hemmings Classic Car, Hemmings Muscle Machines, and Hemmings Motor News. If you have an interest in anything on four wheels, odds are, Hemmings has featured it or discussed in one of their publications.
The most popular coverage includes classic car auctions, clubs, collector car shows, rallies, swap meets, exotic cars, American muscle cars, European sports cars, and racing cars as well.

If you are into restoration, modifications, and custom work, they cover the mechanical aspects thoroughly as well. They address all aspects of restoring old cars to their vintage past, and provide the details necessary to bring back the fine automobile to it’s historic beauty and show winning luster.

And of course they have a popular web site for classic car buffs. You’ll find past issues there along with videos, archives and more content for the avid car enthusiast who just can’t get enough.

When Hemmings Motor News needed a car lift for their  classic car museum, they contacted ASEdeals because they knew they could count on us to provide them with the best product for their situation, and that we could provide them with the best installation service as well.

When Greg Gordon from Hemmings contacted ASE asking for advice on what type of lift to obtain for their museum, we recommended one of our Bendpak two post lifts. There were many factors that went into offering that recommendation. Bendpak is one of the largest and most popular automotive lift manufacturers on the planet, and their quality is unquestionable. Plus, their lifts are ALI certified, recognized and inspected for their quality and safety standards by the only authority on the subject – The Automotive Lift Institute.

Here’s what Greg had to say when about the Hemmings experience working ASE deals –

“When we decided to convert a section of the Hemmings classic car museum into a functioning shop, one of first pieces of equipment on our list was a lift, and we wanted it to be reliable. BendPak lifts initially appealed to us because of the company’s commercial garage experience and when Automotive Service Equipment directed us the model XP10ACX we felt we had found the right unit. Our lift was professionally installed and we were very impressed with the quality of the unit.

We’ve been using the lift for a few months now and it’s serving us very well, providing exactly what we’ve been looking for. Thank you ASEdeals.com for directing us to the perfect fit for our application”.

Hemmings actually ran an article about the entire experience, including the installation as well.

Now, let’s talk about the Bendpak 2 post lifts.

The Bendpak XPR-10 lifts offer a host of features that you will not find on any of the typical, cookie-cutter hoists out there. They offer a rugged single piece column, with a super tall 53 inch lift carriage for superior strength, and a direct-drive lifting system, which is the most reliable system available.

Double diameter pulleys for the equalizer cables means that cable life is double what it would be on normal lifts. Plus, the frame engaging pads have a rubber saddle cushion to protect the underside of the vehicle frame. Another handy feature on those pads is they have a screw mechanism under them that allow you to adjust the pad height up or down by up to 2.5 inches. In addition to the screw pad capability, the lift also comes standard with a 2.5″ extensions to help reach around running boards, frame members, or pipes to get at automobile jacking points.

Triple telescoping arms in the front of most models allows for more reach when extending the arms to get at longer automobile jacking points, and the capability of setting the lift up at a wide, or a narrow setting adds for great versatility. We recommend setting it up at the wide setting in most situations, as it makes many functions easier, and really doesn’t reduce your capabilities in most situations.

The most popular feature is found on the XPR-10AS. This is the 10,000 lb. capacity asymmetric model. They manufactured it with the added capability to also position the auto symmetric if the need arises. This truly versatile features makes this lift the most popular model of all the Bendpak 2 post lifts.

Bendpak lifts are backed with a 5/2/1 warranty, and don’t worry about parts. They’re always available. Even on older, discontinued models.

So choose the lift that Hemmings chose. And purchase from the dealer that Hemmings chose. If it’s good enough for the finest automotive publication in the USA, then it should be good enough for your garage.

And don’t forget, we sell, service and install nationwide. Contact us today at 800-229-6218.

Check Out Our Customer’s Video from TJ Hunt

February 12th, 2017

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.

 

 

Dannmar Price Increase Coming April 1st

March 19th, 2011

There’s no denying it. Commodity prices are going up. Steel, plastics, metals of all kinds, and of course, the big one, oil. Of course oil costs going up means one major thing, increasing shipping costs. This effects every industry in every way. Nobody is immune. We’re seeing nearly all of our major manufacturers increasing prices on us. We’re doing everything we can to maintain prices at our current low levels, however there are times when we can’t bite the bullet any longer.
This is one of those times. There’s a significant price increase scheduled for April 1st for all of our Dannmar Automotive Lifts. Prices will be going up at a significant pace. Factor about a 3 to 5 percent increase in most cases. This means every Dannmar  2 post lift, Four Post Lift and even the very popular MAXJAX portable two post lift are all going up in price.
The current prices are already extremely competitive, and when it comes to their two post lifts, we doubt you can find a more affordable ALI Certified lift. That’s saying something pretty significant. They’ve already got all the features of a top quality ALI certified auto lift, but a price that puts it within reach of the budget minded garage owner.
Plus their  Commander D-7 Four Post Lift is our most popular lift of all for the home / hobbyist looking for a service / storage solution.
You know the old saying, “He who hesitates is lost”. Well that’s never been more appropriate than now. Don’t wait, or you’ll miss out on the best prices you will ever see these lifts at.
