4 post lift reputable brand

I will be moving into a new home this fall and one of the garage bays is 14 ft tall (Yeah). I’m not too familiar with lift companies but is there a reputable brand you would suggest or look at? I thought I could use the lift to change oil and maybe one day add 2nd car by parking under the lift.

I have a Rotary Revolution 7 Four Post. I have had it 15 years - the 1st problem I ever had was a couple weeks ago when the Cylinder blew a seal. Since Rotary provides most dealerships with Lifts, it was easy to get service

The shop I work at uses Rotary. They're a little pricey, but very worth it. We can't afford breakdowns, so the extra cost is worth the extra service, also.
A very close second is Bend-Pak.
Both brands are very easily serviceable here in the upper Midwest, so you can't go wrong with either, imo.

I've been using one of the cheap "Auto Lift" for 3 years and haven't had any problems.

We have two Rotary 4 post lifts and as mentioned just about every dealership in our area uses them plus I purchased from a local supplier.

My Rotary didn't need to be Bolted down, but I didn't like it that way so bolted it down. My was never going to go anywhere so I didn't get the Dollies.

I did get extra long Aluminum Ramps, a Jack Bridge and a I found the perfect sized baking sheets to use as Drip trays!
