QuickJack is easy to collapse and store. In fact, a raised QuickJack can be fully lowered and stowed away in less time than it takes you to reheat yesterday’s leftovers. After the initial setup, you’ll be lifting and lowering your car lift like it's nothing at all.How long can I leave a vehicle stored on QuickJack?
Press "Up" to get safety arms off the lock
To lower the frames, raise the safety arms just over the locks until they disengage from the lock. Note: if lowering from the upper lock position, use a hand or foot to gently lift the arm. The half-moon-shaped lock cam will face downward, and the frames can be lowered.
Press “Down” until frames are lowered
Hold the button until the frames are collapsed. The air cylinders will assist the final descent.
Disconnect and store hoses and power unit
The quick-connect fittings ensure no hydraulic oil leaks into your work area. Don’t forget to attach the protective dust caps!
Roll frames to storage location
How you store your frames is really up to you. You can slide your frames together under the car, stand them up or hang them with QuickJack Wall Hangers. They’re not fragile, so don’t be shy about knocking them around.Browse Car Lifts
How long can I leave my vehicle on QuickJack?
The benefits of a portable car lift are numerous: improved safety over jacks and stands, increased efficiency and better ergonomics. However, there are other benefits you may not have considered. A portable car lift is much easier to set up than jacks and stands, opening up new opportunities that otherwise wouldn't be worth your while. Chief among these opportunities: the ability to suspend and store your vehicle in the air for weeks or months at a time. Here's why that's a good idea.
The lift covers more surface on the ground
QuickJack engages the lift points of your vehicle, so it's perfect to keep your collectible car(s) off the tires all winter long. And unlike jack stands, you'll never worry about safety or stability. This is due to the fact that QuickJack covers a lot more surface area than jack stands. The entire length of each frame touches the ground, which improves balance and stability. On the other hand, jack stands feature four small feet that are easier to shift out of place. You can store vehicles on stands, but let's face it... no one thinks that's a sound idea.
A more relaxed suspension
As long as QuickJack's mechanical locks are engaged, a raised vehicle benefits from a relaxed suspension. Without pressure in the shocks, you actually improve the longevity of your vehicle's suspension. The less tension on the system, the less time and money you'll spend on repairs and replacements down the road.
No more flat spots
Tires shouldn't sit on the ground for months at a time. Flat spots develop over time, ruining the round shape of the tire and damaging other vehicle components should you go for a drive. Sure, you can get in the car and roll the wheels back and forth a bit to prevent flat spots from developing, but that's time consuming, and most people forget anyway. QuickJack takes the guesswork out of it. Lift it and leave it. Your vehicle will be ready for action come the thaw (or whenever you go for your next drive).
Storage Benefits of a Portable Car Lift
There are a number of home car lifts that have surfaced on the market recently, but none have the portability, safety and reliability of QuickJack. And don't get us started on convenience. Only QuickJack has the ability to fold up and stow away in less than a minute. Here are a few storage ideas to help you get all of the benefits when you purchase our lift.
Tuck it under the car
If you prefer to do your auto care right where you park your car, there's no better place to "park" your QuickJack than right under the car itself. Simply tug the frames out with the included extended frame handle when you're ready to work, and push both frames back together when you're done. QuickJack's super-low, 3-inch profile means you'll never have to worry about scraping your vehicle against the frames.
Stand it upright
Leaning your portable car lift frames against the wall is great for long-term storage. They'll blend right in with the rest of your garage tools, and they won't take up any more physical space than a garden rake. The power unit can go right on your work bench with the hoses neatly coiled up beside it. Everything remains neat, clean and out of the way. This is especially great if your spouse or family members don't want a car lift in that garage that will get in the way. Show them that QuickJack has their best interests at heart!
Stack both frames together
If you put one frame prone near the wall, the other can be stowed right on top of it. That's basically two QuickJack frames taking up the space of one. Leave the rubber blocks in the top tray and keep the power unit nearby, and your entire setup will be hardly noticeable in your garage. You don't need a lot of room to get a lot out of QuickJack.
