Galton – Storage Ramp – 4 Post Car Parking Lift

The GALTON Parking Lift was designed as an out-and-out Storage Ramp, we supply other models that have multipurpose usages, but not the Galton, designed with car storage first and foremost, it achieves its goals admirably.

The Galton provides a 4 post car parking lift, in a simple robust and reliable way, doubling your car storage. The four-post stacker has several advantages over other designs in as much as it gives very good access in and out of the vehicle parked underneath. Some of the other lifts (e.g. 2 post) may have some issues with opening car doors but the 4 post design is the best to alleviate this.

We have found that there is a demand in the market for both manual release lifts as well as electrically operated release units so we offer both options.  We also have a choice of infill panels both with the standard plastic drip trays and a metal panel too.

The lifts can also cope with larger vehicles such as 4×4’s and SUV’s opting for the Galton Max.

Galton – Storage Ramp – 4 Post Car Parking Lift


The GALTON 4 Post Car Parking Lift is a straightforward parking lift which is designed to deliver all the advantages of a parking hoist economically and without fuss or fluster.

Whilst being used it’s advisable to give some thought about how best to fill in the centre section, there’s the option to buy Plastic drip trays or metal infills. Metal infill 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 Galton with its ladder rack system, can help a fair bit in 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.

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.
