Porsche Car Hoist

Case Study

Industry:  Automotive
Product:  Scissor Lift


When a Sydney Porsche car collector needed a hoist to safely lower his cars down into his basement he chose Australia’s leading  scissor lift – Safetech.

One of the obstacles for private car collectors can be the space needed to safely store their valuable collection.


One solution is to build a basement car park and then use a scissor lift to move the cars between the drive and the basement.

Scissor lifts offer a number of advantages for car lifts. They can easily lift many tonnes and the platform can be customised to suit the site. And they are extremely reliable.

For this Porsche lover a 3 tonne scissor lift with a custom 6.2 x 3 metre platform provided a perfect access solution for his basement garage. Interlocking doors were combined with push button controls at each level and a locking system to hold the table at ground level.

The result is a car lover’s basement stocked with Porsche cars and no access problem.
