Check with your local high school to see if they have facilities that have a lift. I once was able to take a course (for a small fee) in my local school district that included the privilege of using the shop's tools, lift etc. I used it to transplant an automatic transmission successfully and could not have done it without that facility.

I finally found a mechanic that I like (Crawfords Auto Repair Mesa 85210, Quality Car Care), but eventually went to U Fix It Automotive - Do It Yourself, and Do It Right!, and I thought the mechanic was great, there was an obvious difference when talking with an actual mechanic!

He said the most common injury people had at his shop was burning themselves, although the mandatory safety video did not mention that. I joked when he said he would park my car on the lift. He said that when they first opened, a customer said that he had driven onto lifts thousands of times, and then proceeded to drive into the lift.
