Bony posted about a lift that I purchased from Costco of All Places for $1695.00, here is the link below looks like they have gone up $200. I use it for the GT and it's great, took me about 6 hours to install and works off of 110V. Good Luck

How many people have bolted down the posts? need to know as most installers are saying leave them free standing for movement. Thanks.. gtjoey 1314/0004:thumbsup

Joey,

I can really recommend this company. I have had many lifts and these are built extra sturdy, thicker steel plates and components are generally bigger than most others. The pricing is competitive.

I bought mine a few years ago at the PRI show and they were recommended to me by a few friends that had several of them.

I leave mine free standing and use the wheel kit. With the car on it one person can easily roll the hoist around in any direction.

And if space is a concern and you have several to store.
You buy 1 lift with he wheels and how ever many balcony "stands"
Roll the lift up to the balcony roll the car on your off the lift and let her donw to drive. Very easy compact and a whole lot less than buying several lifts.

I have to be careful not to let my wife see this photo, because if she gets the idea I want to make "our" garage look like this, the "wife-fines" will be heavy...

I have 3 of them and none are bolted down. Makes it handy to wheel over to the wash bay, drive the car on and clean the underside. :thumbsup

Bolted Down, just like a commercial installation.





This is my second house, built just for my cars.

No one lives in the house.

My 00R is also part of my stash.

Whether you bolt it down or not depends on how you're going to use it, Joey. If you think you might wanna move it here or there to do this or that, having bolted it down will prove to be a pain. If you don't think you'll ever move it - or if you KNOW you never will - why not just bolt it down for whatever piece of mind that might bring? (That said, you don't live in 'quake country, so there's really no real PRESSING need to do that regardless IMO.)
