Which Trolley Jack is right for you?


Have you been thinking about investing in your next trolley jack? Maybe you’ve seen a good deal online but how do you know it’s the right product for you?

Alongside all garage lifting equipment, trolley jacks take pride and place in most fast-fit tyre shops as a more flexible / portable solution for mechanics.


We’d all be lying if we didn’t own up to price influencing our buying decisions. This approach often means getting a jack not up to the job and thus you’ll spend more getting the right tool. A top tip can be to look for trolley jack special offers. This enables you to pick up a quality product that will stand the test of time in your garage without the usual outlay.

How it will be used

As with any piece of garage equipment, different trolley jacks have been specifically designed for certain vehicles and lifting requirements.

Fast fit tyre shop? A multipurpose trolley jack could be key as you will be dealing with a larger range of vehicles and requirements. Is the jack you’re looking at going to cover any vehicle that comes into your garage or will you be risking turning business away?

Lifting capacity of your Trolley Jack

You’d think this goes without saying but many will go for a lower capacity to save and try to overexert their jack. This is extremely dangerous. Not only could you break your jack, costing you more, but you will put the safety of those around you and the vehicle at risk. Investing in a higher capacity jack probably just became a no brainer for some of you?

For those looking for a flexible lifting solution for standard class 4 passenger vehicle, the 2 ton trolley jack would be the most suitable – however, with bigger and heavier models of SUVs & 4x4s, the 3 ton trolley jack has become one of the most popular products throughout our portable lifting range.


A sure-fire sign of quality from a manufacturer is a fair warranty, the idea being they are confident nothing will go wrong and will fix it if it does. Winntec is top of the class here.

Our Winntec products come with a standard 3-year warranty – a clear cut sign of the quality surrounding this brand.
