You may have considered having a car lift installed for your business but did not see the overall benefits of the installation. If you have overnight employees, you may find that the benefits are greater than you first realised. Here are three benefits of a car lift for your overnight employees and how you can justify the cost and construction of the car lift in the long-term.

Safety Benefits

The first and most important benefit of installing a car lift for your overnight employees is the safety it provides your employees. When the cars are secure in a car lift system, no one can see the cars from the roadway. This means that if someone is considering breaking into the building or the cars they can't see how many are there, get their tag numbers or break into the cars and obtain any personal information that may be inside on insurance or tag paperwork. It also provides safety to the cars during storms and extreme weather conditions.

Insurance Benefits

Depending on the type of insurance you have and the liability coverage amounts, you may find yourself liable for car damage in parking lots. Falling trees, heavy winds, heavy rains and vandalism may all fall under your liability. If this is the case, then a benefit of having a car lift would be the reduction of these issues to your overnight employees. This is especially true if you have another parking area for your daytime employees that is more secure. The car lift will keep the cars safe and secure within the lift, building or underground garage depending on the options you choose.

Reduced Parking Issues

If your business is in a city, then you may have issues with your overnight employees finding suitable parking. If your parking lot is very small, this could present even more issues. An underground car lift may be the ideal choice. You can park two or more cars in the lift garage and reduce the amount of space needed for your employee parking at night. You can also have the lift garage connected to your business for easier access by your employees.

These are only three of the benefits of a car lift for your overnight employees. If you want to find out the other benefits that may help your business, contact your local car lift contractor and designer. They can help find the best options for you, tell you how to move forward, and they can answer questions you have about the car lift installation process. They can also schedule your installation date and work with you on the best installation schedule for you and your business.
