How can I choose a car lift platform?

The car lift platform is a special hydraulic lift platform for vertically transporting cars. It is mainly used in the transportation of cars up and down between various working floors such as building parking lots. It is especially suitable for low-rise buildings. It is a safe and ideal car transportation equipment.


It is suitable for lifting large loads, with high safety performance, stable lifting, and simple and convenient operation. Simple and suitable for various architectural designs, it can save the building space without the need of the top-floor computer room.

Classification of household car lifts:

Home car lifts can be divided into three common types: scissor-type car lifts, rail-type car lifts, and four-post car lifts.

Figure 1: Scissor Car Lift

The home scissor lift is generally suitable for installation in the underground garage to the second floor to facilitate the parking of family cars.


The scissor lift platform is a special hydraulic lifting platform used for transporting goods between floors of buildings. The products are mainly used to transport goods up and down between various working floors; three-dimensional garages and underground garages are used to lift cars between floors. The hydraulic system of the product is equipped with anti-fall and overload safety protection devices, and operation buttons can be set on each floor and the working surface of the lifting platform to realize multi-point control. The product has a solid structure, large carrying capacity, stable lifting, simple and convenient installation and maintenance, and is an economical and practical ideal cargo conveying equipment to replace elevators between low floors. According to the installation environment and use requirements of the lifting platform, different optional configurations can be selected to achieve better use results.

Figure 2: Guide rail car lift,

Rail-type lift platform (Rail-type lift platform) is a hydraulic lifting platform, which consists of a hydraulic lifting part, a guide rail and a loading platform.

The rail chain type lifting platform has a wide range of applications, and is mostly used for the transportation of goods between floors in industrial plants, restaurants and restaurants, and the up and down handling of goods in chemical factory warehouses.

–Applicable places

  1. Cargo transmission between floors of two- and three-story industrial plants, restaurants and restaurants
  2. Industrial occasions where pits cannot be excavated
  3. Material transportation between floors at high-rise construction sites


◆Sturdy structure, rail-type car lift platform price, large carrying capacity, stable lifting, easy maintenance.

◆It has strong installation adaptability and can be installed in harsh environments and explosion-proof places;

◆Widely used, the material of rail-type car lift platform is suitable for the transportation of goods between floors in most industries;

◆Flexible configuration, rail-type car lifting platform, according to different positions and use requirements, flexible configuration of platform size and import and export direction;

◆Economic and practical, less investment and lower maintenance costs, no need to build a special machine room, saving construction budget;

◆Safe and reliable, the guide rail car lift platform is 6 meters, and the safety valve for overload protection and pipeline burst fully guarantees the safety of operation;

–Scope of application: Widely used in basements, warehouse renovations, new shelves, chemical plants, production workshops and other places, suitable for the transfer of goods between the floors of industrial plants, restaurants and restaurants on the second and third floors, industrial and mining enterprises instead of elevators to lift goods, especially suitable for belt conveyors Wells and places where foundations cannot be dug underground.

The rail-type car lift has a higher lifting height than the scissor-type car lift, and is driven by a heavy-duty chain and wire rope to ensure the safe operation of the machine. The equipment runs smoothly, the product structure is firm, the bearing capacity is large, the installation and maintenance are simple and convenient, and it is more suitable for the working environment where the foundation pit cannot be excavated. The car lift can only be used for evenly loaded car transportation occasions, and cannot be used as an ordinary platform or conveying personnel. Automotive hydraulic lifts come with a complete operating device, button box and safety guardrail.

Car lift advantages

  • Automatic leveling, the elevator control platform will automatically stop when it reaches the target floor

Door-machine linkage: the platform reaches the target floor, and the floor door opens automatically (optional)

  • High-strength double chain drive, no extension of load, long service life and large safety factor
  • High-precision hydraulic transmission, stable lifting, simple operation, low failure rate
  • Large displacement pumping station, fast lifting speed and low running sound
  • Adjustable screw. The platform is level, and the car is raised and lowered smoothly
  • Infrared photoelectric sensor
  • Pneumatic safety lock (optional)
  • The platform is equipped with overload alarm and partial load protection device to ensure the safe lifting of the platform.
  • The car lift hydraulic system is equipped with an explosion-proof valve to prevent the platform from falling due to the rupture of the oil pipe.
  • The main body of the car platform is made of high-quality structural steel, with strong bearing capacity, safety and durability.
  • Equipped with balance valve, safety pressure, emergency stop and other safety devices.
  • According to the user’s requirements, it can be realized under the stage, on the stage and by remote control.

The following car lift platform functions can be added according to user requirements:

  1. Infrared induction: the car does not stop to a suitable position, and the platform does not lift.
  2. Running warning light: flashing warning and intermittent alarm sound during platform lifting.
  3. Anti-drop device: After reaching the working floor, the anti-drop device is turned on. Lock the countertop.
  4. Remote control: The platform can be lifted and lowered remotely.

The scope of uses:

Widely used in 4S shops, large repair shops, multi-storey underground parking lots, home parking lots, etc. It is used to transport cars up and down between various working floors. 4s shop car lift, 4s shop car lift price runs smoothly and the work surface is large.
