Australian Standards for vehicle hoists in your home workshop

What to look for before you buy a car lift
Did you know that not all vehicle hoists are created equal? In fact, it’s not mandatory for vehicle lifts and hoists to have to meet Australian Standards.
While there is an applicable Australian Standard, as a home workshop user you’re not compelled to buy a hoist that meets it. Why is that? It’s because WorkSafe is only concerned with commercial workplaces, not your workshop at home.
But even though you don’t have to buy an Australian Standards-approved hoist, at Garage Equipment we highly recommend that you do.

Darren wins the cost of his QuickJack back
In December last year, Garage Equipment ran an exciting competition offering people the chance to win the cost of their QuickJack back. We’re pleased to say that our competition has been run and won – our lucky winner was Darren Chambers from Melbourne.
As you can imagine, Darren was pretty excited about his win. When Garage Equipment rang to let him know, he said, “Wow…! Thank you so much, you have made my day!!”
“Your product is well used in my hands too,” Darren said. “There are many car enthusiasts that I have shown and many more still yet to show. It’s awesome!”
