    Bendpak PLT6S Special parking lift - installers?

    Just finished putting in a high lift ide mount garage door to make room for a parking lift

    http://www.bendpak.com/car-lifts/par...ts/plt-6s.aspx

    Equipment wants $1600 to install it and electrical is to be done by someone else.

    I was going to tackle the install myself (with a few friends) but based on this expensive install quote I am reconsidering the complexity.

    Anyone put this type of thing in and says go for it yourself?

    Or anyone know a good lift installer for a job well done with a better rate?

    That's bad ass. Cool lift.

    My opinion, if you're going to have a 2 to 3 thousand pound vehicle over you, and you've never installed a lift before, I'd pay top dollar for a professional install. Saving a few hundred or even a couple thousand bucks doesn't seem worth it looking at the big picture. Just my two cents

    - A guy who has no experience with lifts but who wants one down the road too.

    It's a good point. I have 2 friends that have done the four post lifts themselves but Noone with the parking lift.

    Also I paid top dollar for the high lift garage door opener and they've been back 3 times to tweak in the last week.
    But then again that probably just shows that things work out more complicated than a manual shows.
