I'm looking to install a 4 post / 2 posts or even better single post lift for my garage.
You can find nice cheap brand new one online, but they won't deliver if you don't have a forklift at home.... LOL
Edit: Anybody has a used one in the area available for sale?

Your post is not clear on what your asking, but as Scott said the closest place to buy one is Greg Smith, off Rt95 just over the line in Delaware. I picked up 2 on a car trailer. As Eric said you can take off piece by piece. We ended up taking one off complete with a jack/dolly and friends. I took mine off by myself. I did use an engine lift to help.

One of these that Ken picked up was mine. If you use dollies and floor jacks to get it off the trailer, make sure you have at least 4 friends to help. The box is long, awkward and weighs 1800 lbs.

Thanks guys, I'll consider buying new if I don't find a used one that somebody want to get rid off.
Somehow my original post was truncated, I edited so it's clear I'm also looking for a used one :)

I just had a Benpak, four post lift installed in my garage. When I bought it on line, I knew that I had to have someone installed for me, which did cost me $1,000 for the installation. Bendpak had my lift delivered to the installer's place, and he brought it over and installed it in one day. You really need to know what in the hell to do so, I invested the money to have it done.

Thanks Hector. Did you have your garage door modified to High Rise as well?
If you're getting a lift in the garage, definitely spend the money to get the garage door raised. I always find that I like to work on the car with the door open when the weather is nice. It is also handy if you end up storing a car up high and want to put something else under it.

Yep I agree Doug, I'll have to do that eventually, in the summer if I have my lift by then.
I worked on the car over the weekend and went for a quick test drive, I'll tell you... the garage door remains close with this temperatures we had.... lol
