The Finest Vehicle Lifts in Hampshire and Surrounding Areas


As a result of partnerships with some of the best manufacturers in the business, the Guaranteed Tool Company (GTC) is able to supply, install and maintain a number of high quality vehicle lifts for clients in the Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex and Dorset areas.


This comes as a result of our status as a main distributor for Rotary and Ravaglioli Lifts; two companies offering new ranges of state-of-the-art vehicle lifts. So whether you need mobile column lifts, two posts, column, scissor vehicle lifts or anything else – please get in touch!

Single post vehicle lift

Single-Post Vehicle Lifts


Single-post vehicle lifts can use either electro-hydraulic or electro-mechanical power. Great for use in 'tight spaces', they offer easy access to the underside of a vehicle in cases where, as a result of a lack of space or budget, our clients in or around Hampshire cannot use a two-post, scissor or cassette lift. While single-post vehicle lifts are ideal for routine vehicle servicing, their transverse load arm design can limit use in some applications.

  • Few moving parts
  • Strong twist resistant design
  • 2.5 tonne capacity (high)
  • Long reach arms
  • Automatic arm locking

Two post vehicle lifts

Two-Post Vehicle Lifts


Two-post vehicle lifts are particularly suited to fast service work and are widely used by garages throughout Hampshire and its surrounding areas. Two-post units are space-saving and allow you to lift vehicles of up to seven tonnes in weight. They also provide a large amount of underside access. As they are surface mounted, they are cheap and easy to install in any workshops that are equipped with good floors.


Generally, two-post vehicle lifts use either electro-hydraulic or electro-mechanical power. The electro-mechanical or 'screw type' is usually cheaper, but costs a lot to run. Many electro-mechanical two-post vehicle lifts suffer from a modest lifespan and average reliability.


Vehicle lifts that use electro-hydraulic power utilise rams rather than cables, chains or any other mechanical components within their load bearing systems. While these units normally cost more to buy, they are also very reliable, cost little to operate, do not suffer from wear and are long-lasting.

Four-Post Lifts


Four-post lifts offer stable lifting systems for most vehicles by virtue of their design. Four-post units are the most cost-effective way of lifting a vehicle with wheel supports due to the use of hydraulic power. Despite these benefits, the design requires a lot of space and its platforms can obstruct certain types of work.


Although still used extensively for MOT installations, four-post vehicle lifts have largely been replaced by cheaper and ergonomically-superior two-post lifts for routine service work in garages throughout Hampshire and its surrounding areas. The capacity of a four-post lift starts at three tonnes.

Rotary Four Post Lift (Hydraulic)

Rotary Four Post Lift (Hydraulic)


This range of Rotary four-post vehicle lifts offers high quality lifting solutions for any cars or light commercial vehicles that come into the workshops of our clients in and around Hampshire. Lifting capacities range from four to eight tonnes, with a range of options for platform widths and lengths. Models are available for everything from standard service work, to precision wheel alignment, to class IV and VII MOT work.


When it comes to four-post vehicle lifts, our experts believe that nothing beats the Ravaglioli range. A number of impressive features set these high quality products apart from any vehicle lifts of this type that are readily available to our clients in Hampshire and its surrounding areas.

Ravaglioli 4351.3TIMOT4, Four-Post, Class 4, ATL/OPTL MOT Lift (Capacity: 3500KG)

Ravaglioli 4351.3TIMOT4, Four-Post, Class 4, ATL/OPTL MOT Lift (Capacity: 3500KG)


The Italian-made Ravaglioli 4351 is part of the RAV4000 range of four-post vehicle lifts. The design of the 4351.3IMOT4 variants makes them ideal for Class IV ATL or OPTL MOT lanes, while they also have full VOSA approval. The RAV4351.3 four-post lift uses built-in play detectors with hand-controlled hydraulic operation.


These lifts come equipped with mechanical, hydraulic and electric safety devices, as well as automatic anti toe-trap alarms (during the final stage of descent), in-line with the latest CE standards.

Ravagloli 4402 SI Four-Post Wheel Alignment Lift

Ravagloli 4402 SI Four-Post Wheel Alignment Lift


The RAV4402 SI four-post ramp comes with fully integrated wheel-free scissor platforms. RAV4402 vehicle lifts include 4460mm main platforms, in addition to the following features:


  • Optimum size for cars and light commercial vehicles
  • 4000kg capacity
  • Front wheel swivel plates with spacing blocks
  • Rear wheel floating beds for wheel alignment
  • Scissor lifting pads

Scissor Lifts


Scissor lifts use hydraulic power and offer all the benefits of their two and four-post counterparts, yet minus the posts that take up so much space. As a result, they are a real space saver for any workshop in or around the Hampshire area, while also providing a great deal of access around a vehicle.


Scissor lifts can either use recessed platforms or be surface mounted to make them level with the floor of the workshop. The 'in-ground' style allows more flexible use of the workshop area, while also making shop cleaning simpler. The design of the scissor lift makes it perfect for wheel alignment because its platforms offer central support and are resistant to deformation, which in turn facilitates easy level adjustments.


Commercial Lifts and Mobile Columns


The Commercial scissor lifts are ideal for raising vehicles of up to 20 tonnes in weight. They are also easy to use for all kinds of commercial repairs. Mobile columns are flexible, efficient and easy to use for commercial vehicle repairs. The movable carriage forks make lifting smaller vehicles easier, while they also remove the need for 'small wheel' auxiliary adapters.


Scissor Lifts


Our scissor lifts include the following models:

Rotary ML40LT-42 In-ground Scissor Lift

Rotary ML40LT-42 In-ground Scissor Lift

Ravaglioli 5081 Scissor Lift w/Short Extendable Beds (Capacity: 3000kg)


The RAV508I scissor lift is designed to rest flush with extendable platforms. This makes it easier to reach the pick-up points on a wide range of vehicles. The RAV5081 comprises the following features:


  • Auto levelling – the lift stays perfectly level every time the platforms reach the floor
  • Mechanical lock - helps to optimise safety for the user as the lift extends while holding a load.
  • Self-lubricating bushings - fitted on every pivot point of the lift to help reduce wear and produce a higher garage life expectancy.
  • Maximum load capacity of 3000kg

  • Loud alarm - sounds once the lift is in the final stage of lowering
  • Hydraulic levelling system - this helps to ensure the platforms stay level, no matter what the weight distribution
  • Extra low profile beds - 155mm above floor level
  • Maximum capacity of 3500kg
