Preparing your shop or garage for a new car lift is the same whether you’re getting a two-post lift, four-post lift, low-rise or anything in between. This video will cover the five things you need to know to have your shop or garage properly prepared and ready to receive your new car lift.
Number 1 – Know Your Floor Specs First thing you need to know is whether or not your concrete floor is good to go. Shop and home garage floors may come in different concrete thicknesses and pressure strengths. If you don’t know your concrete floor specifications, it may be required for you to get it tested by an engineer.
Different lifts have different concrete requirements, and generally speaking, the heavier the lift, the thicker the concrete needs to be. Know what your space needs before an installer shows up with your lift. If you need to put down additional concrete or re-do your flooring, it’s best to do so before the lift is delivered. You can find concrete floor specifications for each model on BendPak’s website at www.bendpak.com/floor.
