    Most of the older lifts are easily
    serviced (when you know how to) and in many cases work better than newer lifts.

    more of the problems come from people not knowing how to figure out whats wrong and fix the lift properly.


    amen I am still trying to convince them to read the dam troubleshooting guide wher it say in testing use the dang button they need to use a test light while I am holding up botton so they can see what is not 12v

      Another option is to buy an older van for about $3K that has a working lift. That way, you get the lift for less than half price and the van is essentially free. Remove the lift from the van you just bought, install the lift into your van, and then sell the van that you just bought for whatever it costs you to remove and install the lift. Better yet, play your cards right by rebuilding the van and selling it for more so you essentially get the lift for free or close to it.
