You might consider speaking with the Rotary dealer who sold you the lift. The installed price for my 2 post lift was only $200 more than the out the door price with me installing the lift. It was money well spent.
We have a Rotary dealer here in Tennessee with an impecable record. Another reason I bought Rotary and a new lift with the 5 year warranty. I found that when I was looking, the used lifts I found were not that much cheaper and I had to install. $1,000 total difference was enough money to buy used and install. Most used lifts were rough.
I am sure there is a reason you did not buy the dealer installation, but I "might" reconsider that decision.
By the way, the two post lift is the way to go if you intend to "work" on your cars with this lift, not store cars. If storage is a consideration, a 4 post is better. For service and working, nothing beats a 2 post. Go see most any commercial auto service business and see what they use!
