My primary concern is safety, I have a four year old at home and she is more important to me than anything as such, I would appreciate your input on build quality etc, is it worth saving the $1000 or so off the big name lifts. I can also get the dealer association discount on either a Bend Pak or the Rotary which puts them squarely at three grand with the optional jack stands, adjustable width runways, casters and the high drive under clearance model. My garage ceiling height is 13'6" so no worries there. Thanks for your input. LP
I can't speak for those companies you mentioned, but I can tell you I'm very happy with the lift I did get. Everything on this lift is heavy duty and the guys from Greg Smith Equipment have been very easy to work with. I too have a 4yo and a 2yo at home and I'm not worried about the safety of it at all. Maybe our kids should get together sometime and play while we talk cars. If you want any detailed pics of my lift just let me know and I'll take some.

FWIW, the lift, jacks (had them converted to pneumatic), trip trays and the caster set, delivered for just under 3k. But I didn't get a discount like you'd probably get.
