How a Home Car Hoist Can Help With DIY Repairs

You may not be aware that it is not hard to put a car hoist in your garage. There are several different kinds of home lifts available. The most common are two-post, four-post, and scissor. The other major consideration is a temporary versus a permanent lift. 

Most of us choose the lift based on how much room we have to work with, including height, rather than choosing the lift and then building the garage around it. Whatever you choose for your home lift, you will be amazed at how useful it is to have one at home. In today’s blog article, we will talk about some of the potential uses of the home car lift. 

All Vehicles 

While you may be considering the lift for your vehicle, the lift can be used for other things as well. For example, depending on the weight rating of the lift, it can be used for lawn tractors and mowers, too. These require regular maintenance in addition to your car, and can present several challenges, for example, in changing the oil, if you do not have a lift. 

Oil Changes 

Oil changes are so much easier with a lift. No more lying on your back to do this at home. Imagine taking care of this particular maintenance job by being able to walk under your vehicle. 


Assuming your winter tires are on their own rims, a lift will allow you to change them yourself. No more making an appointment and killing your day to get someone in town to change or even rotate your tires. 

We love to help clients add a lift to their garages because lifts are so useful and really make the garage a high-functioning environment where you can easily do all kinds of repairs.
