Annual Lift Inspection

Don’t risk the chance for a costly repair, loss of productivity, or an uneventful disaster by not having your lifts inspected.


The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) recommends all vehicle lifts be inspected by a qualified inspector at least annually in order to ensure reliability and allow the continued safe operation of the lift. Additionally, an increasing number of local building codes and other regulations require annual lift inspections. EVT performs inspections on all makes and models of automotive life equipment.


Our technicians constantly undergo education for their lift knowledge with comprehensive factory training on installation, maintenance, repair, and inspections for a multitude of lifts. With over 27 years of reputable experience, our inspectors attend courses on:


  • Troubleshooting Hydraulic Systems
  • Lock Out/Tag Out Procedures
  • Basic Electricity
  • Personal Protection Equipment
  • Handling/Transporting Hydraulic Fluid

Lift inspections done by EVT include:


  • timed leak test with elevated vehicle
  • fluid capacity and condition
  • adjustment and lubrication of cables and pulleys
  • inspection of post and columns for rust / damage
  • inspection of pads, rollers, slides, ramps and safety features
  • inspect electrical terminals, wiring, and switches
  • torque verification on all anchor bolts and fasteners


Estimates will be provided for any additional work needed outside of the inspection.


EVT will work with you to schedule an inspection and provide minimal disruption to your service department. Your lifts will be numbered and a lift inspection sticker with the technician's name and the date will be applied to the lift. You will be presented with a binder containing Lift Inspection Reports to file for your records. If your records are ever misplaced, we maintain secondary copies for 3 years.
