While we all want to save money, there are additional factors we need to consider when choosing a car lift. For example, the size and weight of the vehicles that need to be parked, as well as the dimensions of the garage, should be taken into account. To help you find the perfect fit for your requirements and budget, we have provided some guidelines to point you in the right direction.
The four-post parking lift is an excellent choice for an affordable option. This configuration, complete with its extended-height feature, is easy to use and requires little to no upkeep. The only downside is that it takes up a lot of floor space.
If you’re tight on parking space, the MaximumOne single-post lift is the perfect solution to maximize your garage area! Order the model with a platform on both sides of the post, and you can easily park up to four cars in a double-car garage – there’s no better way to make the most of a single post!
The cantilever-style two-post parking lift offers the convenience of two-post parking with twice the ease. These rugged lifts, such as the Omer BiPark, have several advantages. Most notably, the cantilever style doesn’t have protruding front posts like a four-post lift, which is handy if you need to enter the lift at an angle.
For the ultimate car lifting solution, choose a subterranean lift like the PhantomPark®. This lift will store one vehicle underground while the other is parked above. As a result, the primary parking space is completely unobstructed, and the lift is fully concealed when it is down.
At first glance, all two-post lifts may seem the same, but there are significant distinctions between them.
A two-post lift with an asymmetrical design allows you to lift and move your car away from the posts so that you can open the doors without any interference. This configuration is ideal for vehicles but not recommended for long-wheelbase trucks.
Symmetrical two-post lifts offer more width between the posts than asymmetrical configurations, making it an ideal choice for lifting vehicles with a long wheelbase.
Determining the necessary ceiling height for your car lift is a breeze. All you have to do is add up the height of both your vehicles and add 10 inches for extra clearance. Want more information? Check out our ceiling height requirements.
Rest assured that all our lifts are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the safety standards set by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) safety standards B 153.1 1990 for Automotive Lifts. Safety is our top priority.
A power outage usually lasts just a few minutes. Your lift will start operating again as soon as the power is restored. However, we recommend having a generator that can provide power for all your electrical needs in case of an emergency where you need to get your car down immediately during a power failure.
Our residential lifts need a single-phase 110V or 220V power source (we recommend a 30-amp breaker). Most residential garages have 110V or 220V outlets (most washers and dryers operate on 220V). Our commercial lifts require a 220V/440V single or three-phase power source.
Almost every home or commercial foundation is strong enough to support our lifts. In most applications, the minimum requirements are 4″ thick concrete, 3000 psi. Moreover, some of our lifts don’t require anchoring, although all the supporting base plates are pre-drilled if you anchor your lift.
The permit requirements, if any, vary depending on the city and the lift type. For instance, most home garage lifts do not require a permit. However, the buyer is responsible for obtaining a permit, so please check with your local building department.

We deliver your car lift by a local trucking company to your home, business, or the warehouse of our recommended installer. You’ll need an engine hoist, forklift, or a boom on a wrecker to unload your heavy lift. Alternatively, our professional installers can unload your lift and deliver it to your location when convenient.
Installing your lift is easy with the help of a forklift or boom and a few friends. Plus, you’ll receive a detailed installation manual with your order. And if you prefer, we have professional installers nationwide who can take care of the installation for you.
Most of our customers opt for professional installation. Still, if you’re a DIY enthusiast, you’ll need essential tools like open or boxed end wrenches, sockets, crescent wrench, vice grips or pliers, a hefty punch, hydraulic oil, Teflon tape, and axle grease.
The cost of professional installation depends on the type of lift you choose. Our team will work with you to provide an installation price from one of our local service providers.
