January 23rd, 2011

Part 1 of a three part series –

You may not spend a lot of time thinking about the safety of the workspace in your garage, but you should. There all kinds of statistics that illustrate the number and costs in real monetary terms along with costs in terms of productivity. Chances are, at some point, you will see a case of an injured worker, culminating in a worker’s compensation issue, or worst case scenario, a lawsuit against you or your business.
If this has happened to you, you know the frustration and tension it causes. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, odds are, it will at some point in your future. But there are things you can do to prevent it, or at least decrease the odds.
Keeping your workspace safe from hazards and accidents is vital not only for your employees health and any other individuals who might enter your shop, it’s also important to the health of your business.
Here are some tips on assuring you keep your garage as safe as possible –
Get an Exhaust Vent System. This can eliminate a very immediate and dangerous hazard of carbon monoxide poisoning. But it can also prevent a longer term, potentially debilitating illness, as the long term effects of breathing exhaust fumes is obvious.  We carry two different portable exhaust vent systems. One by RTI, and one by John Dow / Eurovent. Both are top quality and reliable pieces of shop equipment.

Don’t get cheap when it comes to an Automotive Lift. Many shop owners looking to save a buck, assume that a lift is a lift is a lift. So they purchase one of those bargain lifts for $1495 and figure it’s just as good as a premium quality lift. Nothing could be further from the truth. Get a lift that is ALI Certified. Our Bend Pak Lifts are ALI Certified. Most of their two post lifts and four post lifts are certified by ALI. This means that they meet extremely strict standards for safety and quality. ALI is the premier authority on lift safety and quality. One look at a BendPak lift will show you why they are one of the best names in the lift industry. If you’re the one standing under it, you’ll grow to appreciate the quality.

Part 2 – Next post Latest Motion Picture Connection

July 13th, 2010

We explained to you previously how we supplied a BendPak four post lift to the upcoming Will Farrell / Mark Wahlberg Sony / Columbia Pictures film, The Other Guys. We told you we would notify you when it was set for release. Latest word is that it will premier on August 6th 2010. This soon to be released police comedy not only stars the above mentioned actors, but also features Samuel Jackson, The Rock, and Michael Keaton. The support staff needed a reliable Car Lift for their production facilities, and since we have supplied Bend Pak lifts for several other films they produced, they knew from experience that ASEdeals would be able to supply them with a reliable, durable product. You may recall we supplied automotive lifts to several other films, including The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Taking of Pelham 123. You can check out the trailer for The Other Guys below. It looks like a sure hit to us.
