I only got the lift because I was at the right place at the right time...a Midus Muffler Shop was relocation to a new building and wasn't taking any of their lifts with them. So by word of mouth they sold all the lifts for $500 each in about 15 min. I took the only 4-post that was set up for alignment work and a buddy took two of the 2-post. The owner told me to come back the next Sunday to disassemble it and haul it out. When my son and I got there Sunday the owner said they were slow on Friday so he had his mechanics take it down. He set the entire lift on my car trailer with his fork lift and we were gone in 15 minutes...great deal!
I don't remember what make the lift is...I'll try to look next time I'm out there, it was a national brand.
I have a 16" high ceiling that has white ribbed sheet metal (just like roofing tin). It's screwed to the trussed and then I had 14" of blown fiberglass insulation installed on top of it.
