What is a HGV Column Lift?

Carrying out work on the underside of a vehicle can be difficult if you don’t have the right equipment. As a business owner, you know that your customers expect you to have the best tools and equipment. You also want to provide them with the best service possible. One way to do this is by investing in a truck or HGV column lift for your garage or repair shop.

A Truck Column Lift is designed specifically for use with HGVs, trucks etc, but they can also pick up smaller vehicles too. They’re incredibly easy to use as well. No matter what type of garage or repair shop you have (large or small), there’ll always be ways in which an HGV Column Lift can help improve efficiency.

HGV column lifts are so called because the vehicles are lifted from the wheels on carriages attached to the columns – there are no platforms.  The vehicle can then be raised and lowered by push buttons to drive hydraulic pistons or a mechanical screw (depending on what kind of HGV column lift you have). When not in use, these columns can be stored together so that they don’t take up too much room in your garage or repair shop.

What are the benefits of using a Truck Column Lift?

The benefits of using a Column Lift are numerous, but they can be summed up as increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved safety.

  • Increased efficiency: By being able to lift your vehicle higher off the ground you will be able to access more parts of it at once. This means that you can complete your tasks faster and with fewer movements than if you were working on the floor or at an angle with some other type of lift equipment.
  • Reduced costs: The money saved by being able to complete jobs faster will add up over time when multiplied by all your customers’ vehicles that need repair work done on them each year! Plus there’s no need for extra staff members which means even more savings!
  • Improved safety: The alternative to using a lift is working down a pit. This can be more dangerous in such events as fires etc, when you need to make a quick exit. It will also be a lot brighter and generally more pleasant working on a lift rather than in a pit.

How do you use an HGV Lift?

  • Position the lift columns: Place the lift columns around the wheels of the HGV. Make sure they are evenly spaced and properly aligned.
  • Secure the lift columns: Use the locking mechanisms on the lift columns to secure them in place.
  • Lift the truck: Use the control panel to raise the lift, lifting the HGV truck off the ground. Make sure the lift is secure and the truck is stable before proceeding.
  • Perform maintenance or repairs: With the HGV truck lifted, you can perform maintenance or repairs on the vehicle. Make sure to follow all safety procedures and use appropriate tools and equipment.
  • Lower the truck: Once you have completed the maintenance or repairs, use the control panel to lower the lift and lower the vehicle back to the ground.
  • Remove the lift columns: Once the HGV truck is safely on the ground, remove the lift columns.

It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and any relevant safety guidelines when using an HGV Column Vehicle Lift. If you’re not familiar with the equipment or the process, it’s best to seek guidance from a qualified professional.
