Two Car Lifts Better Than One For Busy Mini Cooper Dealership

Two side by side 4 Post Mechanical Freight Lifts create a more efficient operation for a busy Mini Cooper dealership.

The Challenge

When a Mini Cooper dealer decided to build a new 4-level service and showroom, they knew they needed a lift to transfer the vehicles to the different levels.

The 1rst floor customers can drive in, drop their car off and find the waiting area. The 2nd & 3rd level is for service, and level 4 roof top is for new car inventory and showroom.

The dealer needed to be able to transfer vehicles up & down at all times without having to drive one car off the lift first before driving another one on.  

The Autoquip Solution

To meet those demands, two 4 Post Mechanical Freight Lifts were designed and installed side by side in one shaft way.  These 4 Post Freight Lifts provide the dealer with superior control and lifting power necessary to keep up with the busy activity at the dealership. Special features include bi-parting vertical acting gates with cable actuated mechanical interlocks at all 4 levels to provide added safety – gates will not open unless lift is present. 

Solution Benefits

Two freight lifts are better than one in this case.  The dealer has the ability to move one vehicle to an upper floor while lowering one at the same time providing timely service to their customers.
