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, Challenger, Forward, Dannmar, IDEAL Meet 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 of our BendPak, Challenger, Forward, IDEAL, and Dannmar models are ALI-certified, while some LaunchTech USA,Atlas, MAHA USA, and Tuxedo models are as well.
Buy with confidence.
"Attached are a few photos of the lifts I had purchased from you last fall. We recently purchased a home built in 1922 and promptly tore down the very small existing garage to build this 600 square foot, 15 feet tall, garage - the largest the town would allow. Due to the shape of the property, there is a single garage door on the front, cars are parked head-to-head and 2 stacked above on lifts. We have a second garage door at the end for backyard access and cross ventilation and the original garage barn doors were placed on the side to our new patio. We've had several parties so far, and the garage is the favorite spot, even with 2 cars overhead on lifts.
Car collectors who don't want to pay monthly rental fees for garage storage space are grabbing up these for post lifts for their car parking and storage capabilities. It's much more affordable in the long run vs storage facilities, or adding on to your garage.
