14 Nov Is garage lifting equipment one of the most innovative sectors in the industry?
To many, nothing seems special about a two-post lift. A basic version of this equipment staple might be all you’ve ever owned or worked with. Turns out vehicle lifting equipment is one of the most interesting areas to watch!
A two-post lift can come in various specs & with accessories to diversify it uses (including alignment tables). But when you look beyond this you now have scissor lifts that can move with a vehicle on them & 4-post lifts geared up to complete any number of jobs as part of an ATL or MOT bay.
Why the love of vehicle lifts?
Where you have a vehicle lift, it is almost certainly the most frequently used machine in a workshop!
Think about it, what diagnostic or repair jobs do you carry out without the use of a car lift? How many times a day do you find yourself saying “let’s get it up on the ramp & take a look”?
It makes performing all manner of jobs easier, speeds up productivity and this can lead to more revenue. So, what if we said diversifying the lifting options within your garage could lead to even great productivity & profit?
Are you lifting enough vehicles?
2 post lift and 4 post lifts are commonplace in garages, with one or more of each a familiar sight. Depending on your garage, customer base and speciality though, you could face regular challenges or hold ups with the wrong lifts.
For example, an increase in 4×4 and SUV owners will require greater capabilities in vehicle lifts in the future! Would you be ready to handle multiple larger vehicles today?
Could you align even the biggest vehicles where your competition can’t & gain a competitive advantage, or have they got the competitive advantage over you?
Can you move vehicles around your body shop to work on different service aspects without lowering them?
Your competition can & it means they quote quicker repairs & work more efficiently!
The need for the best, latest and most innovative garage lifting equipment is obvious as vehicle types change. Are you ready for this?
