You may see these lifts advertised elsewhere for less, but that’s because they’re not factoring in their over-priced shipping fee. That’s right – Many competitors will pad their shipping charges quote just so they can advertise the lowest possible price. Don’t fall for those tactics. They’re just trying to confuse you. Our prices include free shipping to most locations.

Other distributors will sell a similar model, but without the premium features, like a US made power unit. Others will make you pay shipping charges for warranty parts that they ship out to you, while it's still under warranty.

Purchase from one of the most trusted distributors on the web, since 1996 with a  Shopper Approved rating on 4.8 stars and an A+ rating from BBB


iDEALThe iDeal TP12KSC-DX is a heavy-duty two post lift: ample, rugged and reliable. This garage lift's fully gussetted oversized base plates and big lifting arms with reinforced swivel pin holes promise years of steady service. The D stands for Direct drive which means a safer, more efficient lift.  The TP12KSC-DX boasts a padded overide safety shut-off system and its extra long carriage (44") puts less stress on slider blocks and drop in adapters come standard.  You can't beat this package.  Most importantly, this lift has the coveted ALI/ETL certification. When you purchase an ALI certified lift, you can be confident that it meets or exceeds strict minimum standards for safety and quality.

iDeal offers a wide variety of garage equipment, but they are most notable for their automotive lifts. This model is a perfect example of why they are rapidly growing into one of the fastest up-and-coming names in lifts. Over a decade of history tells us that these lifts are ready for prime time. Professional auto shops have been using and abusing these lifts for years and are raving about them. They offer professional features and quality along with a reliable time tested design, at an affordable price. If you're looking for a true commercial quality hoist at a reasonable price, this is it. Durable hydraulic cylinders in each column work in a direct drive lifting system for maximum efficiency. High strength equalizer cables with commercial quality pulleys make sure that both sides stay synchronized. You can find cheaper models out there, but you won't find a better model at anywhere near this price. Includes all mounting hardware and truck extensions / adapters.

The TP12KSC-DX is a true beast of a lift. It features a direct drive two piece column with overhead shut off safety bar. Symmetric lifting is best for larger trucks, but the wider distance between the columns offers better door opening capabilities. And the 5" lowered pad height will be low enough to allow most passenger cars on the lift. Includes 2" and 4" stackable height extension adapters and a single point safety release. The made in USA power unit outperforms the typical "economy" auto and truck lifts out there, and don't forget, it's ALI Certified, you can rest assured that you're getting a quality product. You simply cannot find a better value.
