Store your classic car or truck on a car lift
If you’ll be attending any of the 2017 Alberta classic car shows listed here then you might just have your own classic car or truck. A great year-round storage method for your prized vehicle is a 4 post car lift. Installing a car lift in your garage gives you space to park an extra vehicle and is a cost-efficient alternative to off-site classic car storage.
Your classic car or truck can remain close at hand. And if you’re hands-on with your classic’s maintenance, a car lift also gives you the chance to more easily perform maintenance underneath the vehicle.
We also have garage storage cabinets that can be customized to match the colour of your classic vehicle, which creates a dynamic interior look for your garage. If you’re looking to improve the functionality and appearance of your garage space, Garage Living provides free in-home consultations. You can schedule yours right here.
