The ALNESS XL is an extra large Parking Lift that offers a mobility kit and free standing operation. This large parking lift is designed with SUV and 4×4 larger cars in mind. The Alness is a four post design, which is probably the most recognised car lift design in the world being stable, reliable, and robust. The lifts themselves are simple and practical to use with easy to use controls and straightforward drive on, drive off platform runways. When installed and working correctly, like their smaller brother the Alness, they add a professional and prestigious look to any garage or car storage business, helping promote an attractive and prosperous image of the business.
One not so well known advantage of the four post design is that it does allow better than average access in and out of the cars parked on the floor, whilst other model designs suffer from the post getting in the way of the opening doors, the Alness & XL models have no such issues.

Central tool / jacking tray: the tray can be used to lift your vehicle’s wheels off the platforms when used with a bottle jack or mechanics jack. The tray can also be used for your tools whilst working on your car so you have everything to hand. The tray comes with a drain plug to catch small fluid amounts and then safely drain them away. It’s rated to 1.0T load bearing capacity, however if you want the “real thing” then go for our scissor jacking beam as an optional extra.
Aluminium lightweight up ramp set – these are removable and can be stored on the lift platforms, ensuring no extra floor space is taken up.
Drip tray set – includes three plastic drip trays that can be positioned between the platforms to prevent drips from falling onto your car parked under the platform.
Mobility Kit – when fitted to the lift this allows for the lift to be moved around your building floor. When using the mobility kit, cars must not be stored on the lift. We recommend that moving the lift with the mobility kit is a two-man task.
