Default 2 Post Lift - Local Recommendations/Availability

Recently remodeled my garage and now have room not only to fit my truck in but to put in a lift (15' ceiling) [Maybe even get another Pcar or Bimmer project going].

Originally my plan was to buy a good used lift and install it myself but now I am looking at getting something new & having it installed.

Any local distributors recommendations?

Second on Bendpac. Good value to cost ratio and stable parts and service availability. No info on install.

Scott Automotive Equipment received my Worth lift, did the local delivery, and installed it. Good to work with, installers were quite experienced.

Xx on the BendPak 2-posts. I used RD Automotive Shop Equipment to install mine. They also built my original 4-post BendPak when I lived in Damascus. I used them again when I moved to Monrovia. They broke-down and rebuilt the 4-post in my new garage. And used them again later to install my 2-post.
