Vehicle and Truck Hoist Installations

Get this right the first time and save yourself endless problems and expense in the future, get it wrong and you will find yourself with downtime and exorbitant costs on repairing and replacing things like worn ladders, ratchets, rollers, pulleys, etc.

Installing a vehicle hoist correctly requires a pre-installation site inspection, making sure that the platforms (four post hoist) and posts are square, level and aligned, and that the rubbing blocks/rollers, make contact with the posts throughout the entire lifting range. Having installed and commissioned thousands of vehicle and truck hoists (from two to forty tonne), Automotive Workshop Services are adequately qualified to install your workshop hoists.

Vehicle and Truck Hoist Servicing

Are you aware that your hoists must comply with Workplace OH&S Standards 1418.9 and 2550.9 ?

On-going maintenance on your vehicle hoists is imperative:

For all staff members’ safety.
To save you the cost of major repairs – which could have been avoided through regular servicing of your hoists.
To prevent loss of income due to downtime of hoists – which could also have been avoided through ongoing servicing.
At Automotive Workshop Services, we provide complete A-Z maintenance on your hoists, getting into all the obvious, as well as not-so-obvious, areas that require inspection, lubrication, adjustments, checking of clearances, etc. Our safety reports conform to Worksafe requirements.
