Don't forget a VT01 form though before you do anything...

More than likely the lift is going to be wider and longer than your existing lift so some groundwork is probably going to be required if the lift is recessed. Assuming this is the case and your station was approved before November 2010 then the distance between the rollers and rear crossbeam of your lift (assuming your in line recessed) will be 1.5m or thereabouts - there is a smaller requirement here now in dimensional terms so it will all squeeze in...

Hope that helps...

DM me if you need further help...

Forgot to mention you probably will lose 2 weeks at least in testing. 1 week for digging out and concrete pour. Concrete needs AT LEAST 1 week before re-installation to ensure concrete has achieved satisfactory strength... Once installed you can start testing immediately BUT ONLY AS 2-MAN until re-authorised...
