More Rotary Lift members are ALI-certified

Posted on June 9, 2014

Rotary Lift has announced that more than 50 members of its service network have completed the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Lift Inspector Certification Program over the past nine months.

“Rotary Lift’s distributor and installer network includes more than 400 companies spread across the United States and Canada,” says Ron Lainhart, parts and service manager for Rotary Lift and an ALI factory designated trainer.

“We have taken a leadership role in supporting the ALI lift inspector certification initiative so that lift users everywhere can turn to a trusted name for inspections. More than half of all ALI-certified liftiInspectors are affiliated with Rotary Lift and are qualified to inspect lifts built by any manufacturer.”

Annual vehicle lift inspections are required by ANSI/ALI ALOIM-2008, the national standard covering vehicle lift operation, inspection and maintenance.

The company says it has more ALI-certified lift inspectors within its distribution channel than any other manufacturer, making it easy for lift uses across North America to find an inspector.

Rotary Lift is requiring each of its Rotary Authorized Installers (RAIs) to have at least one certified lift inspector on staff by 2015.

RAIs are the factory-trained exclusive providers of Rotary Lift warranty work. They are the only distributors who are authorized to install Rotary Lift’s popular SmartLiftand MOD series environmentally friendly inground lifts and heavy-duty parallelogram lifts.

Rotary Lift is a brand of Vehicle Service Group, which is part of the Dover Corp.
