This answer is better answered when one considers what exactly they will be using their lift for.
- Will you be using a lift for storing a car? When it comes to safely storing a car for months, we highly recommend a four-post lift. More points come in contact with the vehicle which makes it more stable for longer periods.
- Budget - if you have a limited budget, four-post car lifts are a bit more of an investment.
- Four-post car lifts can be versatile in both being portable or fixed.
- If space is at a premium in your garage or shop, four-post lifts take up more room.

How many inches of concrete do I need for a car lift?
For the average four-post lift, you'll want at least 4 to 4 ¼" thick concrete. As the lift capacity for pounds grows higher, the thicker the concrete you will need. Always refer to the lift's manual to ensure you have the right thickness. Always avoid installing on cracked, or hand-mixed concrete.
How do you adjust the cables on a 4-post lift?
Adjustment of your four-post lift will entirely depend on the make and model of the lift itself. Always refer to your four-post lift's manufacturer's manual or contact the manufacturer for proper instruction.
How does a 4-post car lift work?
A four-post car or vehicle lift is a type of lift often referred to as a "wheel engaging multi-post lift." Configured as a four-post surface-mounted lift, this is the primary and most common lift you'll find in car and vehicle service garages today.
Does a 4-post lift need to be anchored?
Unlike a 2-post lift, which needs to be bolted down, 4-post lifts disperse weight across a much wider surface area and are engineered to lift vehicles with, or without drop-in anchor bolts. The decision to bolt down a four-post lift or other parking lifts can often be based on your personal preference. Some things to consider on whether to bolt or not to bolt:
- If you live in an area in the country that earthquakes are an everyday danger.
- If your floor or cement may not be completely level
- If your floor is level and earthquakes are not an issue, you may not need to bolt a four-post lift.
Are 4 post lifts safe?
So long as you operate your four-post lift according to the manufacturers' instructions as well as their guidelines, ensure a proper inspection and maintenance, then a four-post lift is an extremely safe option.
