Default Lift for garage?

Anyone know someone local who would install a lift in my garage for me? I'm looking at getting a two post lift. Shipping weight would be around 1800 pounds and would most certainly come on a 16 wheeler, which CANNOT turn into my driveway. So they would need to have the equipment necessary to get the lift off of the truck when it shows up here and transport it to the garage for assembly and install. The concrete slab is 4 inches thick, which is supposed to be sufficient for a 10,000 capable two post lift.

Time frame is ASAP......

Thanks,

Rich Z.

Rich, Patrick Green can do it for you. He lives in Crawfordville. I'll have him call you if you like. He's got wreckers and forklifts if needed.

Actually, I had someone from Affordable Automotive Equipment out of Orlando contact me today and gave me a pretty good price on the lift, transporting it and install.

But I may be stymied by my own lack of foresight when I had the concrete poured. The expansion joints might get in the way. I don't believe it will be a good idea to have those posts mounted on or very near the joints as the concrete may be more prone to cracking and breaking there with the stresses applied. There is a long joint right down the center of the building running lengthwise (which is probably the best place to put the posts). Then each bay has another joint running back to front between it and the next. I have to measure the distance between the joints, but I believe it will be something like 12.5 ft. The outside edges of the mounting flanges on the posts are 11 ft. apart. So the question is how far away from a seam or joint do those posts have to be? I'll send out some queries, but I hope I didn't shoot myself in the foot with this....
