You can probably tell from our site that the team at Lift King are classic car fanatics. That being said, it would be a mistake to assume that a home vehicle lift is only appropriate for classic car experts or collectors. In fact, it makes expert-level car care more accessible for everyone.
Automotive lifts are standard in professional repair shops, but when it comes to lifts for home garages, who is most likely to benefit from one? They’re especially popular among those who own at least one classic or vintage vehicle, partly because lifts are indispensable when performing DIY restorative work, but also because they optimize storage space when you’re building a car collection. They’re also used all the time at car shows, automotive museums, and other similar venues. As a result, there is a close kinship between the car lift industry and classic car collecting hobbyists. However, their use extends far beyond this.
Not everyone has the financial flexibility or even the desire to build a collection of classic cars, so is buying a lift economically sensible in this case? On the contrary, it can be a smart investment if you’re interested in learning the ropes when it comes to taking care of your own vehicle. Taking a car to a mechanic on a routine basis can really add up, especially if you purchased your vehicle used and it’s no longer under warranty. If you want to extend the life of a vehicle without having to lose more money than you need to, there’s no better way to accomplish this than through DIY maintenance with a professional-grade lift.
Even when disregarding the maintenance use of an automotive lift, it is hard to deny the day-to-day practical benefits. These benefits are particularly noticeable if you purchase a highly compact single-post lift designed for storage garages of many different sizes. Many Canadian families own more than two vehicles, and if there’s not adequate space to store all of them indoors, the extreme low temperatures of winter can wreak havoc on their batteries and other components over time. For reasons such as these, economizing car space in your household may be vastly improved with a lift, and you don’t have to be a car collector to benefit from that!
Purchasing a lift for your home can be the start of a new DIY journey, or it can simply be a way to fully optimize the space available in your garage. It’s our job to find the unit that suits your needs and will last for as long as possible. Call Lift King at (403) 283-1020 to find your lift!
