Unique Free standing 4 post car lift. 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.


Dimensions of lift do not include control gear that mounts on to the post. This will add at least 250mm onto the overall width of this lift.


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 leveling off platforms, wiring in switches, connecting up electrics and so on. If you do not have experience of this then please ask us for a quotation to install the lift for you.
