Buying a car lift these days is more confusing than ever. With so many brands to choose from and so many companies selling the same equipment, selecting the right one is difficult. Some lift companies are marketing firms while others are long time lift manufacturers. Let us help you figure out what to look for
Wether you are a professional or an enthusiast working at home, only the safest, highest quality car lift will do. Don't rely on automobile scissor lifts or cheap drive-on car lifts to handle your precious cargo or your safety. Trust the company that has been manufacturing the highest quality home car lifts for almost 25 years. The cheapest drive-on platform four post or two post lifts, which are usually imported, may appear to have attractive prices, but they severely cut corners in the areas of quality, design, materials, performance and safety. We are proud to offer a quality, American made lift that is a great value and will bring years of enjoyment. We are so proud of our lifts, that we hope you call so we can tell you all about them. We encourage you to do as much research as possible, but when it comes to making a commitment to something that's supporting a couple of tons over your head, we feel it's better to call and talk to us. It's a FREE call, NO HASSLE. Please try to visit our factory showroom. You'll be impressed when you see a Backyard Buddy car lift in person and compare it to the imported lifts we also have in our showroom. If you can't make it to Ohio, please call for a list of the major car shows we will display at this year.
Backyard Buddy car lifts are a tough, professional grade tool used in many pro shops, but they are designed to fit in an auto enthusiast's home garage. You can use your lift for service work, detailing and storage. Imagine being able to comfortably change transmission fluid or install a new exhaust system without laying on your back. You’ll do better work and wonder how you ever got along without it. Of course, one of the neatest features is the ability to stack two cars in the place of one, providing you have the ceiling height (as little as 9 feet for smaller cars). You can also store snowmobiles, jet skis, golf carts or anything else that needs to be off the ground. Imagine the possibilities! You can now utilize the wasted space above your car, even if you just have an eight-foot ceiling. If you are building a new garage, you’ll find it’s less expensive building higher to accommodate a lift than building a bigger garage.

The Backyard Buddy 9,000 pound four post lift is ideal for crew cab dually pickups and large SUVs. Due to our superior design, this 9000 pound lift is identical in operation to our standard model. However, with the use of thicker steel, we made this lift long enough, wide enough, and heavy-duty enough to remain portable even at this heavy capacity. Perfect for your hobby cars as well as your dually pickup or suburban. This lift does it all!!
Henry Ford summed up the color choices for the Model T in his 1920 autobiography as “any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” Obviously we are fan’s of Ford’s automotive innovations, but his ideas on giving customers choices leave a bit to be desired.
We’re the first to admit that looks should not be one of your first priorities when you’re buying something that holds thousands of pounds of steel over your head, but one more place where Backyard Buddy stands above our foreign competitors is in color choice and finish quality.
Our standard lift color scheme is red posts and decks with black cross beams. We’re car guys, so of course red is going to be our first choice. But that’s not the only choice we give our customers. We are able to powder coat your lift and many of its accessories in red, black, white, blue, and silver. One of our more popular color choices is the “USA” color scheme, with red, white, and blue components. Other popular choices are all black, black and silver, and red and blue.
All of our lifts are thoroughly cleaned with a media blast to prepare the metal for powder coating. This gives Backyard Buddy lifts a better-looking and longer-lasting finish. Most foreign lifts just get a quick acid wash before finishing,
A Backyard Buddy lift is an investment that will continue paying dividends by making it easier to work on your vehicles. We think you should be proud of how it looks as well.
