For most Australian businesses, increasing productivity in the workplace is a common goal. 

In a truck workshop, for instance, productivity is measured in terms of the rate of output per unit of input. This means getting trucks in and out as quickly as possible. Designed to exacting standards, Portalift heavy vehicle hoists offers a lifting system that is simple to operate and allows complete underbody access for fast and efficient maintenance of your fleet. 

Here are 5 ways heavy vehicle hoists can improve your productivity and profits... 

1. Increases ease of access for servicing 

By raising a vehicle on a heavy vehicle hoist such as Portalift, technicians will have much better access to “trouble spots” such as the suspension and other areas, as compared to when the vehicle is simply raised on a jack.

Your technicians will also be able to work on a lifted vehicle while standing up, rather than having to lay flat on a creeper. This also makes it much easier for them to access hand tools and other necessary auto service equipment more quickly and efficiently.

2. Reduces required prep time per vehicle 

With a more versatile heavy-duty lift, your workshop will be able to service commercial trucks without the need for long downtime periods. This means your technicians will be able to get it up on the lift and ready for servicing in a matter of minutes.

3. Asset management

When you choose a hoist that incorporates advanced technology in their design, this makes asset management more efficient.  For instance, Portalift Hoists have the latest Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) chip installation. Each hoist has a unique chip number, meaning a fleet of hoists can be tracked easily and efficiently. You can also take advantage of this technology to track your service records or operation manuals. Ask us how!

4. In-house maintenance costs reduced 

Portalift hoists are the most economical on the market to maintain. Annual service requirements and general maintenance can be performed in-house, we’ll show you how!

5. Helps attract quality employees 

One thing we’ve noticed over the years is that auto technicians will actively seek employment in a workshop that’s fitted out with the best equipment. This is because they know that by working with the most modern, up-to-date vehicle servicing gear, they’ll not only add to their skills, but also have the best chance of career success. As Portalift is utilised by training institutions across Australia, such as the Bendigo Kangan Institute, your current and future employees would more than likely be familiar with its operations.

Equip your workshop with high quality heavy vehicle hoists, to not only give yourself the best chance of attracting more talented employees, but also retain them for longer. This can save your business the time and money used to find and train new employees.


At Endurequip, we understand that you always have an eye on productivity and the bottom line. So to make sure your workshop is performing at its best in both areas, choose quality heavy vehicle hoists from Endurequip and help your technicians do more in less time.
