A New Direction in Automotive Lifts

Innovation in the automotive lift service department is driving time savings, improved efficiency and resource savings for dealerships looking to speed vehicle check-in, improve technician performance and reduce waste.

These new technologies in automotive lifts range far and wide. Among others, they include laptop and notebooks service advisor tools that improve walk-around results while getting customers in and out of the write-up process faster, connectivity tools that assist technicians in their problem diagnosis and resolution, and automotive lift systems using non-hazardous hydraulic oils for their operation.

On of the newest technologies for the service department is an inground automotive lift using water (instead of petroleum or vegetable-based hydraulic oils) and compressed air (rather than electric motors to raise and lower the unit.

The new type of automobile lift system has been in operation in a number of dealership service departments for several months.

It also has been accepted by a number of OEMs, including Ford Motor Company, which offers it to its dealers through the Ford Rotunda program, Ford’s OE equipment and tool program.

“There has been no new significant technology in lifts for the last 10years or so, but Challenger Lifts, with this new AquaVantage model, has changed the true guts of lifts,” says Nick Zala, vice president of OEM Sales for Integrated Supply Network, administrators of the Rotunda program for Ford Motor Company.
