Floor Plan


If you do not have a loading dock, unloading the car lift will require a forklift. You can choose to have the lift shipped to a local terminal, residence, or commercial address.

  • PICK-UP AT TERMINAL: If you do not have the means to unload the lift from a freight truck you can pick it up at a local terminal. The freight company will load the lift onto your trailer so you can transport and unload the trailer at your convenience.
  • RESIDENTIAL DELIVERY: You will need a method to unload the lift from a freight truck.
  • COMMERCIAL DELIVERY: You will need a method to unload the lift from a freight truck.
