Improved technology in car lifts means that now multiple parking spaces can be created in one spot, creating space and increased parking availability. At it's most simple two cars can be stacked in one parking spot, but at the more complex end more elaborate units are able to house and move many cars at once using robotics. This is done using lift platforms and turntables which lift and stack cars or move them underground.
Some garages rely on asymmetric and symmetric auto lifts to service the full range of cars, SUVs, vans, trucks and commercial vehicles they'll inevitably see. These automotive equipment are designed to handle certain types of vehicles without crossover, necessitating investments in each type of service equipment to operate at full capacity.
Like any other automotive mechanism, car lifts are manufactured to assist and make things easier for you or your mechanic while undertaking vehicle-repairing activities. They are designed to lift the car to a certain height above the ground to mainly facilitate repair work, and in some cases, increase the storage space. However, such a system often runs the risk of being accidental in nature. Therefore, it is best to research carefully before investing in one of them. Here are some tips to keep in mind as you survey the market for the best car lift.
Symmetric car lifts are traditionally used for vans, trucks or vehicles with generally symmetric weight distribution. Symmetric lifts favor the vehicle in a centered position so the center of gravity can be distributed evenly between lift columns. Two lift arms of equal length face one another from opposing columns in order to lift vehicles with a symmetrical center of gravity.
Versymmetric lifting technology from Challenger Lifts is the original two in one car lift. Why limit your service bay's production with an asymmetric or symmetric equipment application? Maximize our revenue potential with Challenger's Versymmetric 2-in-1 automotive lifts.
