Anyone rent car lifts?

Latest purchase was an e30 and I've been slowly working on fixing it's quirks. I'd like to refresh the front control arms, obviously don't wanna work under ramps which I have no room for anyhow.

Anyone know where I can rent a lift on weekends?
Heard of some place in Hamilton but haven't been able to locate it.

Thanks guys

The spot in Hamilton was called Rent-A-Bay. Not 100% sure if they are still around.
Its near Cannon Street & Elgin.

I think for legal / insurance reasons they all have been shutdown

I remember ones in Brampton, Mississauga, Milton, and there all gone.
