Yerp, looks like you're right D! What lift are you planning on going with...??? I'm going to add one eventually when I have funds, and after I get some other house projects knocked out.

Car Lifts and other Permanent Obstacles

When you plan to have a car lift inside your garage, we recommend for you to install the lift first and then the garage floor. This will allow your lift installers to secure the car lift directly to the concrete making the installation much more secure. When you do install the garage floor tiles, you would cut the tiles to fit around the posts.

In many large garages, you will also find posts or columns. When this is the case, you should also cut the garage floor tiles to fit. You can install the entire garage first and cut the garage tiles to fit around the posts at the end of the installation. For advanced installers, you can cut during the installation as you reached the obstacle. Since you are installing one row at a time, it would be easier for you to cut the tile and install prior to continuing to the next row. The disadvantage is that you would not be able to shift the floor as the obstacles would prevent you from doing so.
