When working on your car, it's often essential to get it up in the air for proper access to turn a wrench or even just carry out a visual inspection. There are a few key safety points that must be adhered to when jacking up your car to ensure personal safety and also to make sure you don't cause any damage to your beloved car. First, make sure your car is parked on a flat smooth surface such as a garage floor, driveway or tarmac / concrete ground and ensure the car is in gear or in park with the handbrake applied. Consult you owners manual to determine where the correct jacking points are on your car. These areas are reinforced to support the pressure applied by the jack, using other points on the car can cause damage to body work or even mechanical components. Once you've figured out where to jack up from, use a trolley jack or your car's factory jack to lift the car up high enough to place a jack stand under a structural part of the car before slowly lowering the car onto the jack stands and removing the jack.
