5 things to think about before buying a 2 Post Lift

 

Choosing the correct 2 Post Lift can be tricky due to many suppliers in the market. Therefore, it’s important to consider several factors before purchasing one for your workshop. We have put together 5 things which are good to consider prior to making the investment.

Here are 5 things to think about before buying a 2 post lift

1.  Space

“Remember that garage equipment, like a 2 Post Lift requires designated space within your workshop. To ensure that it fits perfectly within your workshop plan, it’s best to first measure the space you have to work with to ensure that the 2 post lift you’ve sourced will fit. The last thing you want to do is purchase the equipment, only to find out later that it doesn’t fit within the space you’ve allocated for it.

If you speak to our team one of our Sales Representatives will be more than happy to come to your site to help you measure up and give you the best advice on which lift would suit your workshop space and needs.”

2.  Capacity

Before buying a lift it’s important to understand your exact needs. This will help you to analyse which type of capacity you need your lift to hold. Whether that be 2.5 tonne, 4 tonne, 5 tonne or 6 tonne.

If you’re not sure of which type of capacity would suit your needs best, you can get a rough idea by our break down below.

Up to 2.5 tonne – Passenger vehicles only

Up to 4 tonne – Passenger vehicles and light commercial vans

Up to 5 tonne – Passenger vehicles and commercial vans

Up to 6 tonne – Passenger vehicles, light commercial vans and bigger commercial vehicles

3.  Quality

A lot of the time, Workshop Owners tend to compromise on quality to get the best priced lifts. However, this should not be the case. There are lifts out there which are not only affordable, but which are of fantastic quality too. You can have it all when you shop at the right place.

4.  Parts

A lot of Workshop Owners tend to buy lifts from suppliers which are most competitive in price. We understand that price matters, however supplier support and convenience also matters too. In the likelihood that months or years down the line you may need to get hold of spare parts or consumables for the lift, it’s important to be able to rely on your original supplier for this. Unfortunately, not all suppliers are able to offer this. Therefore, this is something to bear in mind when purchasing a 2 post lift. If you have a lift which requires specific parts which can’t be found or bought anywhere else this could cause obvious issues for you and your workshop. Fortunately for our customers, we can supply a wide range of spare parts and consumables to make sure that our lifts are never out of action for too long.

 

5.  Installation
