We offer installation services for any of the lifts we sell at a reasonable price. Typical car lift installations require a minimum of two trained men approximately six hours to complete. With travel time, it is an all-day job for two men.

While typical installation cost are approximately $700 per 2-post lift, $800 per 4-Post lift, an additional charge will be incurred for the installation of lifts over 10,000 LBS capacity. Understandably, site conditions, long distance travel time, and unforeseen circumstances may add to the cost of installation services.

Most lifts will require up to five gallons of Olympic AW-32 Hydraulic Oil. Oil is considered an accessory so it is not included with your lift. If you want us to supply oil for your lift please remember to make it part of your order. Oil can be delivered with your lift at time of delivery or installation.

Our Goal

By offering installation services, our goal is to provide our customers the best experience, value, and service possible. Additionally, many safety concerns can be avoided when trained professionals install such heavy equipment as car lifts. While every company needs to make a profit, including us, we purposely keep installation costs as low as possible for these reasons.

Payment

Payment for your purchase, transport costs if any, and installation must be made in advance of scheduling any installation. Our installers do not accept payment for services under any circumstances.

Site Evaluations

Conditions vary from site to site, which we will want to be prepared for before in advance of scheduling your installation. For these reasons we will ask customers desiring installation services to provide us with site details, and pictures of the installation site site.

Minimum Requirements

Minimum requirements can varies between the type of lifts being installed. For example, a mobile lift may not be secured to the floor so minimum requirements are considerably less stringent than 2-post lifts that require securing to the floor. Moreover, minimum substrate requirements are considerably more important for a 2-Post base plate lift than for a 2-Post clear floor lift, or a 4-Post Lift.

Only reinforced concrete floors in sound condition are acceptable for two post vehicle lifts. A minimum of 4"-6" of reinforced concrete in sound condition is recommended for any 2-post lift installation. It would be unsafe to install or use a vehicle lift on soil or gravel for any reason!

Mobile lifts: 2"- 4" of concrete is recommended for mobile lifts. Vehicles must not be loaded on to any mobile lift, or the lift moved, over any unsound surface.

​2-Post Lifts: Minimum of 4" of reinforced concrete in sound condition is required for 2-post lifts. Lift bases must be positioned a minimum of 8" from any joint or visible crack.

4-Post Lifts: Minimum of 4" of reinforced concrete in sound condition is required for mobile lifts. Secured lift bases must be positioned a minimum of 6" from any joint or visible crack.

Floor Condition

The responsibility of establishing the condition and suitability of a floor for the installation of a vehicle lift is entirely on the purchaser or property owner of the lift. Liability is a serious concern so please consider all possibilities before moving forward with your purchase and installation.

If you have any reason to suspect the condition of your floor may be unacceptable, or unsuitable for the lift you wish to install, we strongly recommend considering a 4-post lift rather than a 2-post lift to improve safety.

Before installation you will be asked to sign a waver attesting to the fact that you have confirmed the acceptable condition and suitability of your floor for the installation of a vehicle lift, and that you take full responsibility for any failures, damages, losses, or injuries that may occur from the failure of your floor to provide a sound substrate for the installation of your lift.

Cancelled Scheduled Installations

Understandably planning, preparation, loading time, and travel is time consuming and costly. In addition to establishing the condition of the floor, the appropriate space available, including width, length and height, for the installation of the lift should be seriously considered in advance of scheduling an installation.

In the event our installers arrive at the installation site only to find conditions unacceptable or unsuitable for any reason they deem to be valid, a minimum of one-half the pre-paid cost of installation services, plus travel costs, tax included, will be retained to cover these costs, with the remainder being credited to the customer. 

Electrical

Electrical work is NOT part of our installation services. Our installers do not do electrical work of any kind.

Only licensed electricians should do electrical work. Improper or unlicensed electrical installations will void all warranties.

SPECIAL NOTE: Your lift will require final adjustment at time of installation so you will want to have your electrical work in place and completed before your scheduled installation date. Additionally, you will want to have your electrician scheduled to return to wire in the motor while our installers are still present so your new lift can be properly adjusted. If this cannot be arranged, our installers will want to explain how your lift can be adjusted yourself. If neither option is possible our installers may be forced to make a return call at your expense to make final adjustments to your equipment.
