The Best Car Lift Buyer’s Guide: Safe is ALI Certified


Another Thursday is upon us, BendPak Fans. As promised, we have a fresh new chapter in our ongoing Best Car Lift Buyer’s Guide.

Today’s chapter fills you in on the importance of ALI certification and the role that the Automotive Lift Institute plays in making car lifts safer for everyone. As we discussed last week, there’s no single safety feature that will work for all car lifts. The Automotive Lift Institute ensures that not only are the safety features sound, but also that the car lift itself works exactly as advertised. In fact, many of the car lift safety features that we went over last week were pioneered by ALI members.

When you’re working with something as critical as a car lift, it’s important to have someone on your side. ALI is the consumer watchdog group that represents the customer’s best interests in order to protect them and their employees from potentially dangerous situations.

The ALI seal of approval is the absolute quickest and easiest way to immediately determine if a car lift is safe to work with and worth your money. ALI membership is completely voluntary, so it’s also a good indicator of which car lift manufacturers are looking to make the best product and which car lift manufacturers are just trying to make a buck.

Find out more about the safety services the ALI provides to car lift consumers and manufacturers alike, and then head over to the ALI website to see if the car lift you’re considering made the cut.
