Using an Auto Lift to Maximize Your Space

Posted on February 8th, 2021

If the lot you live on only has enough space for a single-car garage, you may think it’s impossible for your family to get—and store—that second car. Even with a two-car garage, many people don’t have enough space in their garage for that second car because of conflicting storage needs. Fortunately, there’s a solution to this problem.

What is a Garage Car Lift?

A car lift is a type of specialized forklift designed to raise a car up vertically. Often used in car shops to facilitate repairs and multi-car storage, car lifts can be employed in your home garage to make extra space for an additional vehicle, home repairs, or simply extra storage or activity space.

How Much Space Do I Need?

11-12 feet of clearance height in your garage will be enough room to accommodate a lift and elevated vehicle. In some cases, ceiling-mounted garage door tracks can pose an issue, and it may be necessary to install a different type of door or modify your garage door in order to make space.
