Quick Overview

The Alness XL is an extra tall version of our popular Alness lift. This freestanding four post lift also comes with increased platform lengths for use with longer vehicles. 


The Alness XL lift is a manual lock release model that features a strong cross-beam wrap-around post design to give it strength and stability. This means that there is no need for the lift to ever be bolted down to the floor – ideal if you have underfloor heating or electrical cables within your concrete floor.


Due to its increased platform height, the Alness XL is suitable for storing SUV and 4×4 vehicles underneath the platform.




  • Suitable for larger vehicles such as SUVs and 4x4s 
  • Rigid and self-supporting
  • Portable
  • Manual lock release
  • Suitable for domestic use
  • Inspection / maintenance lift
  • Parking / storage lift

Product Description

Accessories Included

Central tool / jacking tray

The tray can be used to lift your vehicle’s wheels off the platforms when used with a bottle jack or mechanics jack. The tray can also be used for your tools whilst working on your car so you have everything to hand. The tray comes with a drain plug to catch small fluid amounts and then safely drain them away. Rated to 1.0T load bearing capacity however, if you want the “real thing” then go for our scissor jacking beam as an optional extra.

Aluminium lightweight up ramp set –  These are removable and can be stored on the lift platforms, ensuring no extra floor space is taken up.

Drip tray setIncludes three plastic drip trays that can be positioned between the platforms to prevent drips from falling onto your car parked under the platform.

Mobility Kit – When fitted to the lift this allows for the lift to be moved around your building floor. When using the mobility kit, cars must not be stored on the lift. We recommend that moving the lift with the mobility kit is a two-man task.


Optional Accessories


Infill panels – Two options for you to choose from: steel checker plate panels or galvanised steel wave slats. The Infill panels replace the drip trays to provide a solid platform deck.  If you are looking for load bearing panels then choose the galvanised steel slat option. Please note the metal checker plate panel option is sourced from our factory so a longer lead time may incur if ordering retrospectively.


Jacking BeamOur jacking beam is a great addition as it provides a means for your car axle to be lifted, providing a wheel off platform. This enables you to carry out many more inspection and maintenance tasks. The jacking beam comes with 3 mechanical locking positions that allows you to leave the car in the air for a period of time. Rubber block set included.

What type of vehicles can I store?

Will I have enough room to store vehicles on the Alness XL?
