Inaugural Class of ALI Certified Lift Inspectors Includes Nine Forward Lift Affiliates


Madison, Ind. (Aug. 22, 2013) - Forward Lift's nationwide distributor and installer  network now includes nine Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Certified Lift Inspectors. These  ALI Certified Lift Inspectors are qualified to provide professional inspections of any vehicle lift, regardless of manufacturer. Several more Forward Lift affiliates have enrolled in the certification program, which was created last year to give shop owners a trustworthy  resource for finding qualified lift inspectors to complete mandatory annual lift inspections.

"Annual lift inspections are required under ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011, the national standard  covering vehicle lift operation, inspection and maintenance," says Lance Jones, sales and  brand manager for Forward Lift. "In supporting the ALI Lift Inspector Certification  initiative, our distributors have equipped themselves with a valuable tool to serve their  customers. Certified inspectors are able to identify lift issues before they become problems,  which prevents expensive repairs, maintains shop productivity, and protects employees."

Before the ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program was launched, lift owners had little to  rely on when selecting an inspector. Now, they have third-party verification that the  Certified Lift Inspector is fully qualified to inspect any make or model of lift. An ALI  Certified Lift Inspector can inspect a shop's entire lift inventory at one time, regardless of  the equipment manufacturer. ALI Certified Lift Inspectors receive individual certification numbers that are listed in ALI's  online directory of Certified Lift Inspectors, on their certification patches and on the stickers  they apply to lifts they inspect.
