“This thing is great! I've had it over a year. I'm doing a bare-metal body, engine, and transaxle re-build/restoration of a 33 year old Porsche. The ground clearance on the road is only a couple of inches, so you can't do even the most basic work because you can't really even get a jack underneath it. My car has been on my Quick Lift the whole year, as I make progress.
I love working with my Quick Lift. Sitting up on 2 ramps, I can access anything underneath the car with my crawler, with plenty of room to get leverage on a wrench or breaker bar (even for tough things like exhaust pipe and manifold bolts). I can also stand on the ramps and I have almost enough access to the engine compartment as when the car is on the ground. Another great feature is that you can even put the entire car on stands while it it on the Lift.
The Quick Lift is Strong: it has NO sag or any other indication of any problem. I did a lot of research about lifts before I bought the Quick Lift. I'm glad I did. Not only is the price very competitive with other types of lifts (2 post, scissor, etc.), it is far superior to other lifts in strength and stability (unless maybe you have about $20,000.00 and a 16' ceiling for an auto dealer service dept. grade hydraulic lift), and I do mean maybe. Look on YouTube and see all of the videos of cars falling off of the 2 post lifts, and scissor lifts, some of which even appear to be used in non-dealership commercial shops. My car is sitting on a rock-solid platform due to the Quick Lift design.
I did initially have one concern about the Quick Lift design: there is a large-diameter black steel tube that fits into the back of the lift. You raise the lift by raising this tube with a floor jack. Then you lower the rear ramp legs, lock them in place, and lower the lift. Once the lift is set in position, you cannot remove the lifting tube. I thought that it might be in the way of something toward the back of the car, but since I have used it for a year, I have not had a single issue with the lift tube getting in the way. I have removed the exhaust system in my project car in one piece (from pipe connections at exhaust manifolds to tips of exhaust pipes), and had no trouble removing it. I also removed the rear drive shafts going from the transaxle (like transmission) to the rear wheels. No problem at all.
The foot print of the Quick lift is only a little longer than my car, due to the adjustable length of the ramps and the fact that you space the ramps to the width of the center of the tires. What more can I say. I'm in my 50's, and started working on car projects for myself and friends at about 16. I'm not a professional wrench, but I have A LOT of time in with American muscle cars, and now my Porsche project. I think this is one of the best car restoration/maintenance products I've seen in all those years. Plus, its actually MADE IN THE USA; it is NOT some Chinese piece of tinfoil that is going to collapse and crush you to death.
I recommend the Quick Lift to any home wrench that needs a superior, economical, strong, and stable car lift.”
“checked at an earlier date , was told the ramps would fit in my 1 bay garage it fit in my 10x20 garage and was able to move around the car,the ramp was easy to assemble”

“Customer service was very good, phoned them and had the order finalized in about an hour. Company had to get shipping charges! I like the product and it performs as stated by sales. The only Disappointment I have with the product is, I for safety reasons have someone to guide me up and off the lift.”
