If you’ve ever looked at 4-post, 2-post, scissor or ground lifts and thought “what’s the difference?”, then you’re in luck. Straightset, suppliers of garage and bodyshop equipment, have put together a handy guide on vehicle lifts, explaining which lifts are best for which uses.
Not all vehicle lifts are the same, as Straightset let us know. Choosing the right vehicle lift for your garage can seem difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Once you’ve got it in your head what each vehicle lift is capable of, making a decision should be easy. The guide gives useful details on the major usage and capacity differences between the lifts, such as how many tonnes they can lift, what their lifting mechanism consists of, and what size garage they’d fit in.
The guide also states whether the lifts are suitable for commercial or home usage, saying which are best used for MOT’s and which are best used for servicing. If you’re unsure about vehicle lifts, take a look at the guide at Straightset here.
