    Default Garage Lift Recommendations ?

    Im looking at a new house to buy in the next couple of weeks and wanted to check with you guys on recommendations for cars lifts. The garage is tighter than I would like (aprox 17' wide for 2 cars) but love the house, new construction in Hollywood. I am looking for 1-2 lifts to put in the garage before I move in.

    How tall is it? Is it a sealed in garage or open? Also do you want in-ground or above ground?

    I personally like these above ground lifts as they can fit in pretty small spaces and relatively inexpensive.

    Thanks for the response. Ceiling is about 12' tall, garage about 18' wide wall to wall. Will be storing a panamera turbo S, wraith and another car.

    Have you thought about a recessed lift? You can park two cars next to each other like it wasn't even there, and then you don't have to juggle cars up and down to get the one you want. I have a Bendpak recessed lift and I love it!

    With the recessed lift can you park a car under when a car is up on the lift? The garage is for 2 cars and I need to park 4.

    Thanks

    No. you can park 2 cars next to each other but when the lift is up, you really can't park underneath it. Look at the video of my garage in my SIG and you will see.

    Nice garage setup! Ok thats what I thought about the recessed lift. I think I am going to go with the 4 post / 2 car lift Bend-Pak HD-9SWX 4 Post Lift for Cars & Trucks (BendPak-5175024) . Need to keep 2 cars out of the way and pull 2 dailies into the garage.

    Thanks for the advise.

    That's going to be a sweet set-up. I'm looking to do something similar in the future but with a two post.
