Our History

When The Lift SuperStore opened its doors in 2005, our goal was to become the largest vehicle lift supplier in North America. At the time, we had two employees, 12,000 square feet of warehousing, and a modest 2,500 square foot showroom.

Today, The Lift SuperStore is based in a 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility and showroom in Oakville, Ontario — with another eight showroom locations across North America, operated by retail partners. We employ a full team of engineers and have a dedicated parts and service department to support our customers.

This growth has allowed our team to increase production and inventory levels. We are proud to have become one of North America’s leading suppliers of vehicle lifts, and we continue to look for ways to grow our team and expand into new locations.
