Best purchase ever...

Not the car(s) but a car lift!

I thought about buying one for years and then struggled between a four post and a two post, which brand, etc.  In the end, my time working on cars is limited and will use it more for storage than anything else so I went with a Bendpak four post unit.  Really happy with it and the build quality.  

Makes undercar access a breeze and the sliding jack tray does let me do occasional wheels off work if I need to.  I can move it easily if needed as well.

Fantastic trio, and good to see all 3 bundled like that.

I have designed a few houses that used the Batman style rotating platform for turning cars around. One had 40 separate garage spaces and could easily "park" double that many cars. This is a home not far from me, but I am not allowed to share photos. Super... 

I want a single post lift, but my garage ceiling height needs to be modified...

Very nice! The Four post is the way to go for a large spacious garage like yours. The two post with wheels hanging model is great for working on the car, but less great for storage.

Nice high ceiling garage you have there.

A four post for mainly storage is a good choice and make a lot of sense. Awesome collection! Is that a split window?

Good way to storage cars

But building that up takes probably a little bit of time.
