Any place to rent a car lift?

My car is lowered and scraped to shit.. Instead of paying out my ass to have a shop paint it and rubber coat it, id like to do it myself. I have all the supplies I need. Is there any shop near coquitlam that will allow you to rent a lift for an hour?

Honestly, I don't think anyone does that anymore.
It comes down to liability. If something happens to you while you're under it, then they would get in shit.
There was a shop that rented out their space hourly, they no longer do that.

Not if I signed a waiver or something.. There's gotta be a place or someone who has a lift in his garage that would be willing to do it.

There used to be a place in New West that let you DIY on hoists for 20 bucks an hour, but I think it's closed now.

to answer the op, unforrtunately the U fix it in New West has ceased its operations for awhile now.

if you have friends in the bodyshop business, maybe they have a hoist (alot of them do) in their shops. If you still can't find, please email me I may be able to help.

Yeah it will be hard to find a place.. doing any kind of under coating or even paint will have lots of overspray, including making a big mess on the hoist, and floor

Maybe try bodyshops in surrey, theres a TON of private shops in surrey (mostly all in 1 area) im bet one of them will rent out some time on the hoist!
