Is that to keep the car dry during high spring tides in Pevensey?

my ceiling height is 2.58m and it allows for multi story Elan parking


:D the lift is installed at Tunbridge Wells..... there?s a flood warning at Herbrand Walk today, but hopefully we shall be safe at 400ft above sea level back here in Kent! Hope your GTS (26R) project is going well? We really should meet up at some stage being only a couple of miles apart for half the week!
Kindest regards

I am a very pleased EZ Carlift customer!
Here are a couple of photos from a while back:

Its perfect for my needs - solid and safe, provides unobstructed access, portable, and folds flat. It's a quality product that's made here in US. You purchase directly from the owner/manufacturer, Boytcho Manev ([email protected]" target="_blank" target="_blank), in California. Boytcho is knowledgeable, helpful, and a true pleasure to deal with.

Now that I'm done with my lift for a while, I've lent it to a friend, who is happily using it for his BMW 2002 project.

If you're thinking about a non-permanent lift for creeper/stool access, you cannot do better than the EZ Carlift.

I looked at it but needed it to work with a few cars, which meant I need various extra bits. So it got very expensive.

I went for quick Jack bl5000 in the end. Pretty happy with it, not quite as good side access as the ez car lift bit good apart from that.

after much deliberation I went for a mid-rise scissor lift which gives good access, adjustable lifting points [takes the elan and elite] is parked under a car out of the way when not in use.....I would have preferred a 4 post but my problem was restricted room especially width....

very happy with it...

:D fred :D
