BendPak moves to gunmetal grey car hoists

Transform your workshop with a solid, functional car lift that looks great but doesn’t draw attention to itself

Since we announced BendPak’s change in hoist colour from blue to gunmetal grey, we’ve had a huge response from our customers, dealerships, and car lovers in general. Before committing to the change, BendPak spent months carrying out market research. And overwhelmingly, customer feedback was in favour of the change to gunmetal grey.

At Garage Equipment we’re excited about this change, and the way it marks a new chapter in BendPak’s story as one of the most successful and longest-running manufacturers of two post and four post car hoists in the world – which of course, are available in Australia exclusively through Garage Equipment.

See the difference gunmetal grey hoists make to your workshop

We can’t wait for you to see what these beautiful lifts look like in your workshop. But in the meantime, we thought you might like to see some comparison photos between the old blue car hoists and the new gunmetal versions.

We’ve digitally coloured the hoists in these photos from blue to gunmetal grey – and we reckon it really tells the story of why BendPak made the change. The overall contrast in this garage – comparing the two pictures below – is very clear.


The original blue hoist pops out and leaves a very obvious visual footprint in the garage. When you compare this to the effect of the gunmetal grey, you see the latter is much more at home in the workshop.

Show off your car – not your car hoist

We reckon the new colour also lends itself better for showrooms. In the shots below, notice how your eye is quickly drawn to the vehicles. If you’re displaying a rare or classic car, you want a solid, functional car lift that looks great but doesn’t draw attention to itself.

BendPak are the first to admit that in the past, when they were trying to make a name for themselves, they sought to draw attention to their hoists with a ‘flashier’ and brighter corporate colour.

Now that BendPak is an established brand with a reputation for the utmost quality and reliability, they’re happy for their name to stand alone. With gunmetal grey vehicle hoists, it’s clear that BendPak is moving itself out of the limelight.

Talk to Garage Equipment for a quality car hoist to suit your workshop

Typical Australian workshops – whether for the home user or professionally – don’t demand a bright blue car lift to announce itself at all times. Our new, much sleeker gunmetal grey two post and four post hoists will help emphasise the cars you love working on.
