Product Description

The Alness is a free standing 4 post lift. The lift is a manual lock release model where the locks are simply disengaged by the lever on the end of the cross beam when the you want to go down. The Alness comes with a mobility kit which allows the lift to be moved around your building if you require.

Due to it’s design the lift is free standing, meaning no floor bolt fixings, and is portable so you can move it anywhere within your building. The Alness lifts incorporate a jacking tray that can be used to lift your vehicle wheels off the platforms when used with a bottle jack or car jack, however, if you want the “real thing” then go for our scissor jacking beam as an optional extra.

Accessories that are included with the Alness XL lift are:

Tool / jack tray – Can be used to lift your vehicles wheels off the platforms when used with a bottle jack or car jack. The tray can be used for your tools whilst working on your car so you have everything to hand. Also comes with a drain plug so can catch fluids and safely drain them. The jacking tray is rated to 1.5T, 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 removeable and can be stored on the lift platforms ensuring no extra floor space is taken up.

Drip tray set – Three plastic drip trays that can be positioned within the platform gap to prevent drips from falling onto the car parked under the platform.

Mobility Kit – Allows for the lift to be moved around your building floor. Lift must not have cars when wanting to use the mobility kit. Recommended two man operation when moving the lift over your level concrete floor.


To make sure you have enough ceiling height to store two vehicles in the parking space of one, the rule of thumb is to measure the total height of the two vehicles that you’re wanting to store and then add 250mm. This will give you the minimum ceiling height required.


This lift requires an element of installation. Please ensure that you have got the relevant knowledge and experience in installing garage equipment prior to purchase. Assumptions are made that the installer has worked on similar equipment before and knows about things such as levelling off platforms, wiring in switches, connecting up electrics. If you do not have experience of this then please ask us for a quotation to install the lift for you.
