Car Lifts for Low-Ceiling Garages and Workshops

Low-ceiling workshops and garages present a lot of challenges. Height restrictions can impact mechanics trying to do vehicle servicing work, and some vehicle lifts might not be suitable for premises with lower roofs. This, in turn, affects potential businesses and prevents workshops/garages from offering an efficient and quick service. Luckily, there are numerous innovative solutions, which are in place to solve that problem. Specifically, car lifts for low-ceiling garages and workshops can help to navigate around logistical issues arising because of space limitations. Some of the best car lifts suitable for low-ceiling workshops and garages include:

3.     Ranger 7000TL 7K QuickJack™ Portable Lift

7000TL can now lift an impressive 24.5 inches high. Its reinforced upper frame rails make the car lift strong enough to raise SUVs, light-duty truck vehicles, and passenger cars effortlessly.

For vehicles with higher ground clearance, remember to pick up the manufacturer`s truck adapter set. Those extra spaces will provide an additional lifting height.

4.     BendPack LR-10000

If you want to get a wheel service done faster, you will need BendPak LR-10000. This efficient and amazing low-rise car lift holds loads of up to 10,000 lbs, making it suitable for SUVs and trucks that most other vehicle lifts can`t be able to handle.

Its lug nuts as well as other small parts are within your reach. An easy installation, adaptable, and small footprint 110V/220V power unit makes BendPak LR-10000 a perfect lift, which fits any workshop.

The auxiliary adapters and lift platform also allow the lifting of many frame contacts and unibody undercarriages at the manufacturers` pick-up points on vehicles.

5.     GP-7LCS

GP-7LCS is uniquely designed to fit in workshops with a ceiling as low as 2.7 meters. It boasts the lowest columns, offers an impressive rise, and can virtually be installed in every garage.

The GP-7LCS`s manufacturers invented it to give users the versatility of working from home. Low-profile columns that come with it don`t compromise with its lifting capacity. Not to mention, it comes with the industry-best warranty and is backed by a full-service team that supports your every need, after and before your purchase.

The game-changing and incredible upside of this car lift is that it stands at only 2.7 meters. Even if GP-7LCS doesn`t provide as much rise as other types of 2-car post lifts, its 1.473 mm still offers a lot more than mid-rise and low-profile scissor lifts.

6.     BendPak LR-60

BendPak LR-60, a 6,000 lb capacity scissor car lift comes with rubber lifting blocks, multi-position safety locks, a heavy-duty steel channel frame, and a dropped crossbar to add clearance.

Not every car lift is created the same. You will have to choose the right car lift based on your garage`s needs. If your garage has a low ceiling, these aforementioned car lifts can come in handy. They will give you the flexibility and convenience of working in your garage without worrying about the workshop`s ceiling height.
