How Important Are Regular Automotive Lift & Equipment Inspections?

Annual automotive lift and equipment inspections are an important part of maintaining a vehicle service facility. Many times, an inspection can inform you of a problem long before it becomes an emergency. Inspections are almost always more cost effective than emergency service.

Certified lift inspections are also recommended or required by several jurisdictions throughout the United States, and you run the risk of non-compliance with your local inspection requirements. Additionally, many insurance policies will require annual inspections on your equipment, or give you a discount on your insurance policy for annual inspections.

All inspections are available throughout the United States through our Service Program to Public Sector Entities, which provides for flat-rate and transparent pricing for annual inspections regardless of facility size and geography.

Auto Lift Inspections FAQ

A garage equipment or vehicle lift inspection includes an examination of the lift’s structural, mechanical, hydraulic, air and electrical systems and components. This examination is performed against a multipoint list of criteria, with many criteria being “pass” or “fail”, while other criteria asks about quantitative factors, such as lifting speed or other wear, and asks an inspector to compare these numbers against manufacturer accepted statistics.

Getting an inspection of any kind is a best practice of owning and operating any capital equipment. While there are some industry standards that are recommended for certain equipment, like vehicle lifts, most equipment benefits from a regular inspection. An inspection will reveal potential problems before they become cost-prohibitive or productivity-impacting.

Similarly, peace-of-mind that lifts or other equipment have been monitored by experts is important. Whether you are overseeing a fleet of hundreds of vehicles, or whether you are an owner-operator, it helps knowing that what you’re operating (or what your staff is operating) on a daily and weekly basis is safe.

Inspections are also recommended or required by several jurisdictions throughout the United States, and you run the risk of non-compliance with your local standards. Additionally, many insurance policies will require annual inspections on your equipment, or give you a discount on your insurance policy for annual inspection.

Yes, ALI-Certified Inspections are made available on our contracts pending availability through our Service Program, which provides public sector entities with a contract-compliant way to procure vehicle lift inspections.

While there are standards that govern the design of garage equipment, there are no formal standards governing equipment inspection. 

If you currently have a safety protocol, you’re ahead of most service facilities. However, you may not know that there are a series of daily, weekly and monthly checks that are required by the manufacturer to ensure that your lift or other piece of equipment remains safe. Additionally, inspector companies are experts in diagnosing and repairing many types of vehicle lifts and garage equipment, and are trained specifically to look for issues that may not be apparent to an operator.
