Bonar – Four Post Car Parking Lift – Car Maintenance Ramp

The BONAR Four Post car Parking Lift delivers through its 4 post parking lift design, a simple and reliable way to double your car storage, from one car parking space to two!  The Bonar is not only a Parking Lift though, it is also a Home Maintenance Lift offering the option of adding a jacking beam for those who have larger projects in mind, more than simple day to day vehicle maintenance.

This 4 post stacker can also be purchased with a mobility kit that turns the unit into a fully mobile lift enhancing its usefulness and potential uses. A further asset is that this 4 post stacker doesn’t need to be bolted down, it can be used as a free standing car lift, though we’d recommend if using the Bonar for more arduous heavy-duty tasks, e.g. engine removal, gearbox-out level of jobs, that pinning the lift down would be recommended.

Bonar – Four Post Car Parking Lift – Car Maintenance Ramp


The BONAR Four Post Car Parking Lift is a multifunctional lift that is equally at home as a free standing and mobile maintenance lift, as well as a high performance parking lift.

As a Home Maintenance Lift, the four post design is one of the best known and reliable lift configurations, allowing the lift to be used for maintaining vehicles, with the optional jacking beam, as well as an optional mobility kit that allows the lift to be moved around the site.

Whilst being used it’s advisable to give some thought about how best to fill-in the centre section, and whilst the lift comes with a set of drip drays (option to buy another set so you have full length coverage) there’s the option to buy metal infills. This is a great option if the car is used primarily as a Parking Lift but not that advisable if you also use the lift to carry out maintenance – those infill panels can be pretty heavy.

Another consideration is how flat is the floor. Ideally, the floor should be flat level and smooth but if  that’s not possible then the design on this Bonar with its ladder rack system, can help a fair bit to getting the lifts set up and working well.

The adjustable locking ladder system allows you to change the locking interval positions of the platform height.

In brief

  • Ideal for home garages, workshops, car dealerships, car transport companies, and car storage facilities
  • Can lift cars, SUV’s, 4×4’s and small vans
  • Can be freestanding or fixed to the floor
  • ​​Mechanical ladder lock system provides long term parking security

At Strongman Lifts we continually strive to improve the design and features of our lifts. Having been in business successfully since 2007, the images on our website reflect that length of time. If there is some particular feature or dimension that  is particularly important to you and your purchase, you should check with the office before making any purchase. Thank you.
