Default Buying a Bike lift

Howye lads,

Anyone any recommendations on where to get a decent bike lift on a budget. I have seen a few around thee 350/400 mark online on Amazon and the likes. Where sells them in Ireland and any recommendations?

Dig out a pit in the shed or garden - park the bike alongside and work at eye level . Free + no big lift taking up valuable space on the floor. Make a good cover to put on it when not in use and park your bike on it.
