What should you consider before buying a car lift? It must meet your budget and
expectations – and fit in your garage – of course. Most importantly, it should
be from a high-quality manufacturer.
But whether you’re a car enthusiast or just looking to maximize garage space,
you need to start your search with one important question: “Do I need a 2 post
lift or a 4 post lift?”
When You Should Choose a 2 Post Lift
If you want to repair or tinker with the underside of your car, choose a 2 post
lift. An arm attached to each post lifts the centre of the vehicle, giving you
the access you need to comfortably work on your vehicle’s vital areas. The
motor, wheels, and suspension are easily accessible.
2 post lifts are surprisingly versatile. The PL-3.5-2W has a lifting height of
70.9 inches, making it perfect for small cars and most residential garages. You
can use the PL-5.0-2ET for SUVs and trucks, as it carries up to 5,000kg.
When You Should Choose a 4 Post Lift
4 post lifts are built for storage. They carry and stabilize all four wheels,
which lets you safely park one car on top of another. Just drive onto the lift,
raise it with the touch of a button, and park another car underneath. It doesn’
t get much easier than that.
Don’t worry – space isn’t an issue. Our popular PL-F35, for example, takes up
just 20.9" width.
Regardless of your choice, 4 post lifts easily and safely store your summer car
during offseason driving periods. You’ll use your garage space to the fullest.
Which Lift Is Best for You?
The decision generally comes down to price and purpose.
In terms of purpose, you have to decide if you’re more interested in storing or
repairing your vehicle.
If you want to regularly service your car, a 2 post lift is the right choice.
Although you could also use a 2 post lift to store your cars, it will unload
your vehicle’s suspension because it doesn’t support the wheels. What’s more,
it can take a few tries to spot your vehicle on a 2 post lift.
If you want a lift for reliable storage, a 4 post lift is the right choice and
can still be used for service.
