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's a couple of pictures of my new MD6XP scissor lift. It works great. Thanks for everything."
Notice how there are two boards on either side of the car lift. This is done sometimes to allow you to drive low profile cars over and onto the lift when the automobile is too low and would bottom out on the hoist. If you have a low profile sports car with a frame height off the ground that is below 5", your car's underside will make contact with the lift and bottom out. This is one smart method to avoid that potential pitfall. We've even seen some folks create a recess in their floor for this lift to sit in, although, this would be much more invasive.
This model has 3 different locking positions to give you the ability to raise the vehicle to different lifting heights, depending on your needs. It also comes standard with a 12 piece adapter kit to allow you to get at different frame contact points. Maximum height is at 53 inches with the tallest adapters, and 48 inches with the shortest adapters.
