Installation services are available for all Olympic lifts and shop equipment. Typical car lift installations require a minimum of two trained men approximately one workday to complete.
Call us for exact installation costs for the lift you choose. Understandably, site conditions, long-distance travel time, and unforeseen circumstances may add to the cost of installation services.
Most lifts will require up to five gallons of Olympic AW-32 Hydraulic Oil. Hydraulic oil is considered an accessory, so it is not included with your purchase. If you want oil included with your order, please remember to make it part of your purchase. Hydraulic oil can be made part of your delivery, but only when delivered on our company truck. Oil is HAZMAT, requiring special permits to transport by LTL freight carrier. For this reason we do not offer oil for shipment with LTL shipments. AW-32 oil is readily available locally.
By offering installation services, our goal is to provide our customers with the best experience, value, and service possible. Additionally, many safety concerns can be avoided when trained professionals install such heavy equipment as car lifts. While every company needs to make a profit, including us, we purposely keep installation costs as low as possible to benefit our customers.
Payment for your purchase, transportation, and installation costs must be made in advance of scheduling any installation. Our installers do not accept payment for services under any circumstances.
Installation costs may vary depending on location, conditions, and specific requirements. Transportation costs, and other services are additional.
Conditions vary from site to site, which we will want to be prepared for before in advance of scheduling your installation. For these reasons we will ask customers desiring installation services to provide us with site details whenever there is any question about your approach or installation site.
Portable lifts: 2″- 4″ of concrete is recommended for portable lifts. Secured portable lifts require minimum 4″ of reinforced concrete in sound condition.
Warning: Never move any lift while it is loaded, or over an unsound surface!
2-Post Lifts: Minimum of 4″ of reinforced concrete in sound condition is required for 2-post lifts up to 10,000LBS. Lifts 12,000LBS and over require 6”+ reinforced concrete in sound condition. Lift bases must be positioned a minimum of 12″ from any joint or visible crack.
4-Post Lifts: Minimum of 2”- 4″ of reinforced concrete in sound condition is required for 4-post lifts. Secured lift bases must be positioned a minimum of 8″ from any joint or visible crack.
Responsibility for establishing acceptable condition, and suitability of any floor for installation of a vehicle lift rests entirely on the purchaser or property owner. Safety and liability are serious concerns so please consider all possibilities before moving forward with your purchase and installation.
Safety must come first! If you have any reason to suspect the condition of your floor may be unacceptable, or unsuitable for the lift you wish to install, we strongly recommend considering a 4-post lift, or scissor lift, rather than a 2-post lift to improve safety.
Before installation you will be asked to sign a waiver attesting to the fact that you have confirmed the acceptable condition and suitability of your floor for the installation of a vehicle lift or shop equipment device, and that you take full responsibility for any failures, damages, losses, or injuries that may occur from the failure of your floor to provide a sound substrate for the installation of your lift or device.
Understandably planning, preparation, loading time, and travel can be time-consuming and costly. In addition to establishing the condition of the floor, the appropriate space available, including width, length, and height, for the installation of the lift should be seriously considered in advance of scheduling an installation.
OUR POLICY: In the event our installers arrive at the installation site only to find conditions unacceptable or unsuitable for any reason they deem to be valid, a minimum of one-half the pre-paid cost of installation services, plus travel costs, tax included, will be retained to cover these costs, with the remainder being credited to the customer.
Electrical work is NOT part of our installation services, nor is it available. Our installers do not do electrical work of any kind. Only licensed electricians should do electrical work. Improper or unlicensed electrical installations voids all warranties.
SPECIAL NOTE: Your lift will require final adjustment at the time of installation so you will want to have your electrical work in place, and completed before your scheduled installation date. ONLY LICENSED ELECTRICIANS AND HOMEOWNERS CAN DO ELECTRICAL WORK AND MAKE CONNECTIONS. If you plan to use an electrician, you will want to have your electrician scheduled to return to wire in the motor while our installers are still present so your new lift can be properly adjusted. If this cannot be arranged, our installers will want to explain how your lift can be adjusted yourself. However, when neither option is possible our installers may be forced to make a return call at your expense to make final adjustments to your equipment. Return service calls are pre-paid, billed at $100 min service call, $99 per hour per person for labor, plus transportation costs.
