Much like no two shops are alike, not all two-post or four-post lifts are created equal. Choosing the right lift for a new shop or to replace an existing lift can be challenging and time-consuming. To help shop owners evaluate the options, Forward® Lift is offering new free resources, a Two-Post Buyer’s Guide and Four-Post Buyer’s Guide.
The guides help shop owners navigate the multiple configurations and accessories available in these popular lift styles. The guides assist shops to clarify their needs, and walks them through all of the things they should consider to determine which lift is the best choice for them. Both buyer’s guides are available free of charge at

The Forward Lift Two-Post Buyer’s Guide covers:

  • Benefits of two-post lifts
  • Asymmetrical vs. symmetrical lifts
  • Different sizes of lifts
  • What’s important in a two-post lift
  • Specific lift options and features.

The Forward Lift Four-Post Buyer’s Guide covers:

  • Benefits of four-post lifts
  • Different lift configurations
  • Determining cost vs. value
  • Specific lift options.

“Because your lift is the center of your service bay, there are few more important – and daunting – decisions than determining which lift is the right fit to support your current business and future growth,” says John Uhl, director, light-duty product management for Forward Lift parent company Vehicle Service Group. “We developed these buyer’s guides to increase shop owners’ confidence in their lift purchasing decisions by asking insightful questions and directing them through the appropriate considerations. Finding the best two- or four post lift for your shop takes a little time and research. In the end, though, it’s worth the effort.”
