In order to safely raise the car of motorcycle off the ground, you have a couple options. You can use a jack and after you have the vehicle far enough off the ground, you can put safety stands under it and then remove the jack. The problem with safety stands is that they are normally about one foot off the ground and only allow you to do the simplest tasks. If you want to raise the vehicle higher safely, you need what’s called automotive lifts. They will raise your car high enough for you to walk under it and easily work on the bottom side of the car.
If you have a motorcycle, you can use motorcycle lifts to raise your Harley or other model high enough to easily and safely work on the motorcycle while it’s off the ground. No matter what you’re working on, safety is the most important thing, never get under a vehicle that isn’t safely secured by safety jacks or a vehicle lift.
P.S. My husband once again helped me with this post.
