A vehicle lift is the centerpiece of most service and repair bays. As an integral part of vehicle maintenance and repair tasks, it is used more times every day than just about any other piece of shop equipment. In fact, the Automotive Aftermarket Industry Association (AAIA) reports that just over half of repair shop owners, service managers and technicians surveyed purchased lifting and hydraulics equipment in 2006. Perhaps because of this universality, there is a general perception that all lifts are pretty much the same, differentiated only by price.

But the lift-buying process is about much more than buying steel. A lift that is properly matched to its application can enhance technician productivity for increased profitability. A well-made lift can provide this enhanced productivity for years without costly downtime. On the other hand, a lift that cannot properly lift the vehicles being serviced, that hampers technician productivity or that is down for frequent repairs can cost a shop much more than its purchase price over its lifetime.

That’s why it’s important to look beyond purchase price and consider the total cost of ownership of a vehicle lift. A lift with a low total cost of ownership costs less to operate and has a proven history of providing consistent uptime with lower repair expenses.

The 30-page, illustrated Rotary Lift white paper Automotive Vehicle Lifts: A Resource Guide covers many of the factors dealers and independent repair shop owners should evaluate when buying new vehicle lifts. It includes sections on the impact of lift choice on the bottom line, the advantages and disadvantages of various types of vehicle lifts, facility planning, lift purchasing considerations, the importance of ALI certification, advice on how to evaluate a lift manufacturer and supplier/installer, and guidelines on how to keep vehicle lifts functioning properly. A brief history of vehicle lifts and a glossary of lift terms are also included.
