Car Lifts

Invented in the USA in 1925 by Peter Lunati, Car Lifts are one of the most essential pieces of equipment that a Mechanic can have in their garage. When performing repair, maintenance, or servicing, much of the work demands to be done from the underneath of the vehicle. Being able to properly see and work underneath a vehicle can be challenging at times, Car Lifts are a quick and effective way to judge a vehicles performance and problems.

A decent Lift will make your life easier when working on things such as the engine, transmission, or breaks. And it’s certainly safer, more comfortable, and preferable to working underneath a jacked-up car.

Car Lifts are also beneficial as they make good use of your garage’s space, allowing you to get more vehicles in and providing a good return on investment.

After the experience and knowledge of the Mechanic, the most important thing to have in a garage is a range of versatile and well-maintained tools and equipment. Every garage should have a decent Car ramp. Here at Automotive Tools we supply a range of mechanical and hydraulic Vehicle Lifts, the most popular of which include 2-Post, 4-Post and Scissor Lifts.

2-Post Car Lifts

2 post car lift

2-Post Vehicle Lifts have been a staple of garages, body shops and dealerships for decades.
Electromechanical heavy-duty 2-post Car Lifts are able to lift a wide range of heavy vehicles and come in a variety of specialised models, allowing you to work on your vehicle quickly, conveniently, and safely.

4-Post Car Lifts

The specifications of 4-Post Car Lifts will allow you to easily raise any vehicle, large or small, via electro-hydraulic system. If you have the space to accommodate a 4-Post Lift it is an absolute necessity for all garages.

Scissor Lifts

Flexible and more compact than 2- or 4-Post Lifts, Scissor Lifts are a versatile and space-saving option for smaller garages and areas.

Dependent on the type, they can either lift via the wheels like a 4-Post Lift, or not like a 2-Post Lift.

When not in use these Lifts lie flat and compact so as to save valuable space.
