Most people love a good DIY project. With an abundance of home renovation ideas, spurred on by numerous reality TV shows, Australians are doing more things themselves than ever. But just because you redid your bathroom or installed your flatpack kitchen, it doesn’t mean you should be setting up a car stacker. Here’s why.

– These machines have many moving parts, and there is little room for error with any measurements or levelling.
– They come in various shapes and sizes, each with their own installation requirements.
– Various tests need to be conducted during the commissioning phase simulating different scenarios. This will help to confirm that the installation is sound and the system is safe to use.
– You are more than likely to void the warranty if you haven’t received training from the manufacturer to perform installations.
– It will end up costing more than it’s worth – it will take time, and none of the work you do will have a labour warranty. You will have to pay for repairs if there are any faults or breakdowns.

As well as being mechanical, car stackers have electrical, software, commissioning, calibrating and servicing components, that are all just too much to be familiar with for smooth and safe operation and maintenance. A high level of precision and a trained eye is needed to ensure correct and safe installation. This sort of specialised work is best left to a professional from a reputable company whom the manufacturer backs.
