(ANGIE’S LIST) – You probably associate them with professional repair bays, but car lifts are becoming popular choices in residential garages to expand storage room.
“Once only used by the rich and famous, car lifts are much more affordable now, and we’re seeing them used by homeowners who have a lack of garage space,” Angie’s List Founder, Angie Hicks said.
Indianapolis homeowner Bruce R. installed a car lift in his garage thirteen years ago.
“They were really quite affordable. At the time I paid about $2,000 for it, which is a heck of a lot cheaper than an extra bay in the garage,” Rosen said.
Lifts can be used for storing vehicles long-term, or to elevate them to access the underside. Now days owners with DIY Garages, have multiple categories select from 2-Post and 4-Post lifts for homeowners with repair work and storage solutions, at affordable costs.
“Space is the most valuable commodity you have, whether that’s a large shop or you’ve got a two-car garage at home,” Griffin said.
“Obviously, you’re going to be putting your vehicle on it, you’re going to be under it, you want it to be done right”.
Car lifts come in a variety of shapes and sizes, appropriate for everything from a motorcycle, ATV’s, side-by-sides, UTV’s, boats, classic cars, to a commercial-grade lift capable of holding up trucks.
“It’s really taken off in the past couple of years. People are starting to realize, this is something attainable to them. It is affordable”.
Angie says different lifts have various levels of floor requirements and include a variety of safety features. An installation professional can tell you everything you need to know.
