How to Select Lift

To run an efficient workshop, it requires good planning. And a big part of planning a workshop is selecting the right lifts.

Choosing the right lift requires a good knowledge of the work it will be used for, combined with a good knowledge of lifts.

There is no one lift that will suit every vehicle or job type.

A lift is a large and long term investment. But it is there as a tool to make you money by saving you time. Before buying a lift, you should be clear about the work it will be expected to do, and also have all the information from your lift supplier. The wrong lift can reduceefficiency or limit the work you are able to do.

Things to consider before buying a lift:

  • Range of service work
  • Workshop size
  • Vehicle weights
  • Vehicle sizes
  • Ground clearance
  • Pickup points
  • Vehicle access requirements
  • Drive-on / Drive-off requirements
  • Need to park underneath lift
  • Lifting times
  • Availability of spare parts
  • Delivery time
  • Warranty

With the right knowledge and the right advice, the lifts you put into the workshop can make the difference between a good workshop and a great workshop.
