We all rely on equipment of some sort, whether it’s a computer, a vehicle or a hydraulic system. And sometimes it seems like we take it for granted—until it breaks. Let’s face it: even the most trustworthy piece of equipment is bound to run into trouble from time to time. Just like humans, it needs to be looked after, given proper maintenance, given regular checkups and, when the need arises, benefit from some damage control.
We use our cars for work and pleasure—the daily commute, the grocery store, our kids’ soccer games, that family camping trip and so much more—and when they aren’t working properly, they have to be taken in for service. And in order for that service to be performed, there needs to be a well-functioning vehicle lift in play.
If your shop’s vehicle lift isn’t doing well, it’s time to call the experts. At Valley Hotsy, we are experts at vehicle lift repairs in Columbus, GA, and we’ll help you get back on track and back to work right away. Here are just a few things we can help you repair.
Those loud noises
You might have gotten used to those loud sounds coming from your vehicle lift, but you might want to double check, because while some noise is inevitable when it’s in operation, your machine really shouldn’t be drowning out its surroundings all the time. Grating, grinding or gurgling noises can indicate a host of problems, like unwanted fluid or breaking metal, and these problems need to be addressed as soon as possible. We’ll inspect your system and let you know if something’s up, and what it will take to fix the issue. If you need some repairs, we’ll get started right away, and be in and out before you know it.
That suspiciously long wait time
Of course you don’t drive a truck or car onto a lift and expect it to go up in half a second, but still, there’s an average time a lift should take to get that vehicle up, and if your lift is taking a really long time, it probably isn’t normal. Waiting around for your lift to get up there already can cost you lost time that could be spent fixing those vehicles. That time adds up, and in the meantime, your lift is also losing functionality. We’ll take a look at your system and tell you what we find—you might just need to have your cylinder recalibrated, or maybe another part replaced. Whatever it is, we’ll find a solution.
The electrical wiring you forget about
It’s understandable to focus on the hydraulic aspects of the lift system, but don’t forget there’s an electrical component, too. Valley Hotsy knows that an important part of vehicle lift repairs in Columbus, GA is identifying any faulty wiring and keeping your machine in great shape.
