Choosing a 2 post lift for Your Home Garage
Are you considering a 2 post lift for your home garage? If you’re still unsure about which 2 post lift is right for your needs, we can help. Having a 2 post lift in a home garage can be helpful in a variety of ways, specifically for added storage space or a place to work on projects. The next step is to decide which specific type of 2 post lift is right for you.
Because a 2 post lift acts as a “hammock” by supporting the body of the vehicle, they are the perfect solution for auto repair and project work in a home garage. Keep in mind, however, that 2 post lifts are not portable and must be anchored to the ground. Our 2 post lifts come in a variety of sizes, lift capabilities and types. To find the one that’s right for your home garage, keep the following in mind:
Lift Capacity: Keep in mind the types of vehicles you plan to store or work on with your new lift, as vehicle weight matters. For example, the Q10 is a 10,000 lb. 2 post lift, whereas the Q12 is a 12,000 lb. lift. The lowest capacity two post home garage lift is the QFP09, which has a 9,000 lb. capacity.
Size of your garage and ceiling height: Will the lift you choose fit in your home garage? Our two post lifts vary in size, so make sure you’re choosing one that will fit in your space. For instance, the QFP09 has rise height of 78 1/8” and an overall width of 137 ½”. The Q10, however, has a rise height of 77 ¾” and an overall width of 131 ¾”.
Flexibility: The great part about 2 post lifts is the 3-stage front arms which provide the ability to lift both symmetrically and asymmetrically within the same service bay. This means you can work on large trucks and small cars using the same 2 post lift, within rated capacity.
Safety: It’s important to have a safe 2 post lift no matter where you plan to use it. Quality Lifts is dedicated to consistently meeting safety standards and providing the highest quality lifts. We care about the safety of our customers and stand behind our efforts to sell only the safest products.
2 post lift installation: Once you know which lift is best for your needs, how does it get installed? Quality Lifts provides customers with easy shipping, installation and support without the top brand costs. We want you to spend less time worrying about the 2 post lift installation and more time working on your passion.
Used vs. New: If you’re considering a used 2 post lift over a new one, keep in mind that unlike new lifts, used lifts are not warranted by the manufacturer. They may have missing or replacement parts which can lead to frequent failure and servicing. Plus, used lifts have to be taken down, removed from one location and relocated to another. That means you pay double labor.
When shopping for a 2 post lift for your home garage, you should be looking for more than just a car lift. You should also be placing high priority on reliability, peace of mind and high-quality – three characteristics you get when you choose Quality Lifts.
