Not too bad, unless you're car is in there for a week lol. I have access to a lift, but that would be a good place to go if you needed get under your car for a while. And looks like they're hiring too according to their website.

Wasn't there something like this in that movie Christine?

alot of military bases have a shop or garage you can rent out bays and such, i support this guys hopes and dreams i just hope it doesnt go belly up. especially with lawsuits stemming from lift accidents or shop misconduct. it would have to be supervised well and insured appropriately.

but on the other hand i would support that business. in a heartbeat

For people who don't have a garage at home or have the tools needed to do some jobs, $12/hr is a good deal. Having a lift is a big time saver in many cases. If I can do something in 4 hours at this shop and pay $48 vs 8 hours of laying around on my back at home. The $48 is a pretty good deal.

I work for audi, but my sidework rate is much cheaper then that. I think it could be a good idea for oil changes and basic stuff. I think eventually Lawyers will have a hayday with this.

Again as many of you already know you can pm for info on sidework. I would even be willing to go down there and help for a tip. LOl or you can come to my lift.

The lifts don't look like normal lifts... they look like they lift it by the wheels? Or am I crazy?

Hill's auto center is like 5 bucks an hour, and you have to have hookups to get in there, so this is a pretty good deal, especially since I bet it is nicer than Hill's. I just think the lifts look pretty weird. Wonder if they'll only charge 6 bucks if you use it for 30 min. This opens a whole new possibility for me though, whole reason I don't work on my own cars is because I hate crawling under them with jackstands and stuff.

^^ The Hill AFB shop is like $2 or $3 per hour.... and all the tools are 100% free, included in the price. No "hookup" is required... just a phone call.

All of their lifts are frame lifts though.... no drive-on lifts.

I choose to just use my garage anyway.... easier, and no rush.... I have brought it there to tighten all the new suspension components.... and one other time to have my rotors turned, for like $7 a pop.

This is a great idea for Utah downtowners though..... but unfortunately, I see failure. People are inherantly lazy..... and many that are to poor to pay a mechanic, will "try" to do it themselves..... fail.... and possibly hurt themselves.

So yea... I forsee the lawyers grabbing a hold of this one soon.
