Garage Ceiling Height Requirements

How Tall Does Your Garage Ceiling Need To Be For A DMS Car Lift?

Installing a car lift in your home garage is a great way to create more space for your vehicles, while also providing a convenient and secure storage solution. However, before you begin the installation process, it is important to consider the ceiling height requirements to ensure that your garage is suitable for a car lift.

First and foremost, the ceiling height of your garage will determine the type of car lift that you can install. In general, most car lifts require a minimum ceiling height of 10 feet to accommodate the height of the lift and the vehicles that will be lifted. This is especially important if you have larger vehicles, such as SUVs or trucks, which require more clearance than smaller cars.

To determine the exact ceiling height that you will need, you should measure the height of both cars that you plan to lift and add them together. It is also important to factor in an additional 6 inches of clearance to ensure that you have enough room to safely raise and lower the vehicles. For example, if you plan to lift two cars that are 4 feet tall, your minimum ceiling height requirement would be 8 feet 6 inches.


One of the biggest advantages of installing a car lift in your garage is the ability to double your storage space without having to add on to your home. With a car lift, you can easily store two cars in the space of one, which is especially useful for homeowners with limited garage space. Additionally, car lifts provide a secure storage solution that can help protect your vehicles from theft and damage.

In conclusion, installing a car lift in your garage is a great way to maximize your storage space and protect your vehicles. To ensure that your garage is suitable for a car lift, it is important to consider the ceiling height requirements and consult with a professional car lift installer. With the right lift and installation, you can enjoy the benefits of a more organized and secure garage space.

Committed To Customer Satisfaction

Let me be the first to tell you that I have tried almost all Zen courses out there. And, every time I have failed. Well, Zen Life was a totally different way of seeing things. And, I am now in the second stage of my Zen training and have not failed so far. My aurora might not be as clear as others, but I will get there with Zen Life - mark my words!

What can I say? I was once a person with no meaning in life. My life was empty and I felt like a loser. A close friend of mine gave me a link to Zen Life and my life is suddenly a life with a purpose. I have never felt this way before and I recommend it to all people I meet on my path to becoming 100% Zen.

A bright light in the shape of a Zen Life membership changed me as a whole. I have had success in my past life, but now I know it was the wrong kind of success. Right now, I am able to levitate 11 inches and I plan to reach 20 inches before the new year.

We are very proud to be a Christian owned business.
