IMPORTANT TIPS WHEN SHOPPING FOR A GARAGE/WORKSHOP LIFT
A GARAGE/WORKSHOP Automotive lift is an excellent investment for anybody that wants extra vehicle storage space or wants to work on their own Auto or Truck. But the decision you make now on the type and capacity of lift will determine how satisfied you eventually are with your purchase. The first thing you need to determine is exactly what you are going to use the lift for. Are you going to just use it for storage for your extra vehicle, or will you be using it as a vehicle repair lift, or both. Additionally, you need to determine how much space you want to take up in your Garage or workshop. And finally, you need to take careful measurements of the space it will go in including how much front to rear depth you have and minimum ceiling height.
The variety of available Automotive lifts is as varied as the requirements you have and the limitations in the location you want to put the Lift. The main types are:
A: 4 Post Hobby Lifts
B: 4 Post Work Lifts
D: 2 Post Clear Floor Lifts
E: 2 Post Floor Plate Lifts
F: Portable Scissor Lifts
G: Anchored Scissor Lifts
H: Portable Single Post Lifts
I: Anchored Single Post Lifts
As you can see above, with so many options on the type of lift you can invest in, it is important that you really understand your personal requirements for your new lift, and also be familiar with all of the advantages and disadvantages of each different type of lifts available. In addition, your choice should also include Due diligence on the Manufacturer of the lift as this will make a big difference in both the safety and longevity of the lift
Being used to shopping for the cheapest item available on the internet, we are in the habit of shopping mainly by price. Unfortunately, with Automotive lifts, cheap lifts are usually cheap for good reason and it’s unlikely that you will be rewarded for “saving money” on an inexpensive parking lift. In fact, the contrary is true. The cheapest lift may seem to be the best value, but it’s rarely true.
Capital Auto equipment understands that pricing is very important to our customers when they are looking for their personal Auto Lift like any other any major purchase, and sometimes the Capital Automotive equipment Lifts price is best in the market when compared to other cheap lifts. But this is the type of equipment that investing a few more dollars now will save you a much larger amount a few years down the road. Plus, what price is the safety of you and your family. Many cheap manufacturer’s customers first bought from other sources and then quickly came to us for a quality replacement when their equipment fails or they could no longer get replacement parts.

As with any other investment you make, you want to make sure the equipment is built to the highest standards available, has direct technical support, and has a rock solid warranty. When you are buying from e-commerce sites that sell multiple lifts from different manufacturers, that is what you are getting, just a sales site. When shopping the too-good-to-be-true “deals”, you run the risk that the the seller has no experience with the lift you are buying and will refer you to the manufacturer when you have questions or need warranty service. They are just selling you auto lifts with little care for what your needs really are and how you plan on using the lift. The design of the lift, it’s quality and safety is not their concern – it’s just making their sales quota. Little or no customer service can be expected, and the soon-to-follow poor communication and pass you on to the manufacturer is the normal process.
