How do I know which car lift to buy?
This is a common question our customers ask when looking to purchase an automotive lift. They are usually deciding between a 2 post lift or a 4 post lift. The main factor to consider when deciding on your lift purchase is "What am I using this lift for".
To help with your purchase decision, we have highlighted below a few questions to ask yourself?
If storing a car for portability sounds like the task you are most likely to be using a lift for, then the 4 post lift is highly recommended. It is able to support an entire car or truck much easier than a 2 post lift. They are more like a bed being able to support the entire vehicle. They are designed for portability, and most come with a caster kit. Not only is the 4 post lift portable with the use of the casters, but you can also permanently anchor the lift to your floor if you choose. As for power, they generally feature a 110 volt motor and easy installation because no special wiring is required.
If repair and maintenance is what you are looking to do with your lift, then the 2 post lift is for you. The 2 post car lifts are the most inexpensive lift for raising vehicles with heavy weights, whereas the 4 post lifts require an auxiliary lift at an extra cost. To free up wheels, these lifts allows you to have access to all parts of the vehicle for repairs and service including easy access to your wheels. The 2 post modes will raise your car higher in a low ceiling garage. If you have a 10 foot ceiling, it will raise most vehicles to about 4-1/2 feet off the ground. Not portable as the 4 post, the 2 post MUST be anchored to the ground. And as for power, they come with a 220 volt single phase motor.
