Automotive lifts are often one of the most expensive and valuable tools in your shop. It can be overwhelming to conduct annual inspections to protect this investment, especially if you have multiple locations. If you work with a non-ALI-certified inspector or use the same vendor for both inspection and repairs, it can lead to a conflict of interest and higher repair costs.

Reliable Annual Lift Inspections

Dealerships, service stations and educational facilities in the U.S. and Canada are required by ANSI standards to have their automotive lifts inspected yearly. Proper maintenance of automotive lifts is critical to:

  • Ensure a safe work environment for technicians
  • Avoid damage to a customer's vehicle and company property
  • Comply with requirements from insurance companies, OSHA and other governing authorities

As an Associate Member of the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI), DEKRA offers the most trusted lift inspections in the industry.

Operator Training Services

To eliminate vehicle lift risks and hazards, DEKRA also offers onsite operator training. Our knowledgeable professionals teach operators how to:

  • Safely load vehicles and operate the lift
  • Follow manufacturer safety controls and weight capacity restrictions
  • Properly execute lift safety policy to reduce risk between annual inspections
  • Identify hazards such as damaged floor anchors, frayed cables and worn pulleys

Lift Safety Policy Consulting

Improper lift maintenance or operation can cause costly damage to customer vehicles or company equipment and result in employee injury. This is why a well-designed safety policy is essential for every shop with a vehicle lift.

DEKRA offers expert consulting services to create or optimize your vehicle lift policy. We’ll help you stay in compliance with the ANSI/ALI ALOIM standard, including the creation of planned maintenance and operator training logs.
