  1. THE UNKNOWN! Beware of the family owned welding shop! There could be oil change pits, oxy acetaline, famable liquids. The list could go on and on. Preplan or walk throughs would be in your best interest if you have these in your first due.

  2. Are there cars on the hydraulic lifts?
    Are the hydraulic lifts above ground systems or placed in the foundation of the structure?
    Does the structure have a basement where the mechanic can drain fluids without having to raise the car on a jack or ramp type system? (stair well commonly found but not limited to the center of the garage between the two garage doors)
