Congrats on your purchase of the HF lift. I've had mine for 3 years now. Works like a champ. I did like a few others did. Forklifted it into the Avalanche at the store. When I got home, I just opened it up and tooks parts out one at a time. Eventually, it got down to man-handling the last big parts by hand. Not really a big deal.

I actually roll mine out of my shop into the driveway all the time when I'm working in my shop. Shop is a full woodshop that also is where I park my four motorcycles. Each time I roll it out or bring it back in I have to pick one end up and drag it back into the garage as the garage floor is higher than the driveway.

The thing is a beast. I also bought for around $40 on sale at HF, a wheel chock. Bolted it to the front of the lift. I just roll the bikes up on the lift and into the wheel chock. Then strap them in place. Works great.
