The Atlas® Wheel Stands are the perfect choice for those smaller shops who want the advantages of a four post lift but have only limited floor space. The set of Atlas® Wheels Stands can support up to 6,000 lbs. and, because they are taller than most other stands, are the perfect height for hanging wheel alignment sensors. Many shops do not have room for a dedicated four post alignment lift. These shops may have only two post lifts or midrise lifts in their existing facility. The Atlas® Wheel Stands can be adjusted (leveled) so that they can be used for wheel alignment. Simply place a turntable on each wheel stand and your two post lift has been transformed into a four post alignment lift…complete with turntables and slip plates.
Use the arms of your two post lift (or mid-rise lift) to raise the vehicle to perform lateral run-out compensation for your sensors or to make adjustments on the front or rear ends. The Atlas® Wheel Stands are also perfect for undercar service including exhaust and suspension adjustments and installations.
The Atlas® Wheel Stands are the perfect choice for those two post lift owners who also want the many advantages offered by a four post lift, but just do not have the extra shop space.

How Do I Get My Stuff Off The Truck?:
Many customers do not have access to loading docks and forklifts. We have assembled some photos of our products being unloaded with and without the aid of a forklift. Many of our freight carriers have power tailgates on their delivery trucks. There may be an extra charge for the power tailgate, depending on the carrier. The power tailgate is normally rated at 1000 LB. capacity. This is not enough capacity to unload most of our lifts. However, when used properly (and safely), the power tailgate (in conjunction with some common sense) allows the customer to off load many of our products without the use of a forklift.
Most truck shipments will be delivered by a commercial freight carrier operating a tractor/trailer rig. The semi trailer will be enclosed. Most commercial carriers have smaller straight trucks and some have small flatbed trucks, but the majority of freight companies will not use these smaller trucks for your delivery. Greg Smith Equipment cannot guarantee the type of truck that will be used for delivery. You should assume that your product will be delivered on a tractor/trailer rig that uses a 53 foot enclosed trailer. This is a VERY LONG rig. It is the truck driver's responsibility to make sure that your product is brought to the back of the delivery truck. It is the customer's responsibility to unload the product from the truck.
If you are going to have your products shipped, please review the following:
1. Shipping a large product to a business address or to a freight terminal creates far less headaches than shipping to a residence. 2. Are you sure that a semi with a 53 foot trailer can access your delivery area? 3. Do you have the proper equipment to off load your product? The truck driver will move the product to the back of the truck, but it is the customer's responsibility to unload. 4. Have you discussed the GSES shipping policy with your salesperson? 5. If you are shipping your product to a buddy's business (because he has the forklift), are you 100% sure that he will inspect your shipment for concealed damages?
Also: Please read (and understand) the following the articles to make sure there is no confusion about your responsibility in the shipping process. We ship thousands of lifts, tire changers, wheel balancers, air compressors and other pieces of large equipment each year. Once you (the customer) order from us (the distributor), our goal is to make sure that delivery of your purchase goes as smoothly as possible. If you have questions, please get them asked and answered before the delivery truck pulls into your driveway.
Greg Smith Equipment stocks a complete inventory of parts for the equipment we sell. We employ a full staff of technicians who can assist you (over the phone or in our warehouses) in repairing your equipment with genuine parts. Certain Competitors do not stock the equipment they advertise and do not stock any of the parts or accessories.
