Automtive lift shopping, looking for suggestions
 
Hello,
This weekend i am shoping for a garage lift .I have been thinking of a 4 post . My garage is 22 x24 with 9 ' 6'' ceiling

I have looked at so many and they all are so different in quilty and price
Who has one and would you recommend yours

Thanx ,Bob

If you would just use the search function you'll find numerous pages on this subject.

My biggest concern would be your ceiling height. Maybe I mised something, but I'm not sure how much good a lift would do when you could only lift the car about few feet?

lifts.
 
I have 16 ft walls in my shop and a 2 post lift, plenty of clearance. My nephew has a 4 post lift and the wheel kit so it is movable. will you have enough garage door clearance so you could roll it outside to get a car all the way up? A neighbor had a concrete pad along side his house garage , it looked strange to see a car up in the air next to his garage behind a 6 ft gate. With low ceiling height a set of higher ramps like you see at a used car lot mightr be more practical.

The car is a active project in the works look at my photo album.Im just sick of rolling around on the ground .it measures out to raise inside 4 feet or so and im thinking i can roll around on a chair .Plan b is to roll it outside on nice days .I priced byb lifts and thou they look nice they are almost twice the price of bendpak .I wanted to pay a little more for a GET WHAT U PAY FOR lift but twice the price is crazy .does anyone have a 4 post bendpak.
