About Us

Kwik-Lift was developed for you – the car enthusiast. Kwik-Lift is the strong, affordable car lift solution for safety and convenience.

Our History

In 1996, Danny Johnson was working under his street rod when it fell and pinned him underneath. While he recovered in the hospital, he wondered what he could use instead of jack stands to lift his car. Danny started designing a safer alternative that provided better access to the project car and fit in his garage. Within a few years, Kwik-Lift was born.

The company began in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and we remain here today. Since the invention of Kwik-Lift, we have built tens of thousands of car lifts. Most of our products are made in the USA, and we ship units all around the world, from Europe to Australia!

Our Customers

Although Kwik-Lift was created for the car enthusiast, this safe and affordable product appeals to professional auto re-builders and repair shops, too.

Mechanics and car restoration shops choose Kwik-Lift for the same reasons you do:

  • Convenient working height – Kwik-Lift raises the bottom of your tires 20″, placing the chassis between 30″ and 36″ off the floor
  • High strength – The basic Kwik-Lift holds up to 5,000 pounds
  • Top quality – Made of laser-cut, high-strength steel from US steel mills
  • Simplicity – Easy to assemble, can lay flat so car can park on it when not in use

Over time, our product offering has grown to include two-post, four-post, mid-rise, alignment racks, and many other types of lifts that we distribute from Challenger, Quality, Bendpak, and others. In 2015, the company began selling tire machines and balancers, air compressors, and other shop equipment for the commercial repair shops and dealerships.

Whether you’re a car enthusiast or a shop owner, we’d like to do business with you. Browse our Kwik-Lift products here, and contact us if you have any questions.
