Automotive shops can double their existing parking capacity using Autostacker, from BendPak Inc. And a new online tool helps users determine if an Autostacker lift is the right solution for any combination of vehicles in a specific location.
Using the height check tool, input the height of the two vehicles. The results will show if each vehicle can fit on the top and bottom level at each lift safety lock position. The tool also shows how much ceiling height would be needed to park those specific vehicles on the Autostacker lift.
“Most homeowners or car collectors know exactly which vehicles they would park on an Autostacker lift,” says Pat Weber, director of sales and business development, Autostacker. “For our commercial customers, the solution is more complex. A car dealer might know the range of vehicles they’d want to park on the lift, say from a Mustang to an F-150, but an airport or other parking facility operator might just want an idea of the range of vehicles that will fit on Autostacker lifts in their space. Our new height check tool makes it easy for any customer to evaluate whether Autostacker is the right solution.”
Autostacker’s scissor lift design eliminates the bulky side posts and beams of traditional parking lifts so it fits into a normal parking space. This also makes it possible to install multiple Autostacker lifts side by side. To further streamline the installation, up to 14 lifts can connected to a single high-speed master power unit.
The design of the platform deck makes loading cars, crossovers, pickups and SUVs smooth and simple. It inclines gently from the loading ramp to the wheel trough, allowing low-slung vehicles easy access onto the platform without the need for long loading ramps. When not in use, Autostacker lowers to the ground, leaving all the space above and around it clear.
Autostacker offers free design assistance for installations of four or more lifts. Users can upload building floorplans to the website and the company’s designers will render photo-realistic views of the space reimagined with lifts installed.
