Does anyone have oil changing pits inside of their shops? If so - pros/cons or pictures????

One thing I would include would be a oil change- work under the truck- type bay area. Kind of like they have at the speedy oil change places where you just drive over the opening and don't have to jack up the truck.

The one I saw was about 4 feet deep and 4 wide. The guy had 2 by 12's covering the hole,. There was a ledge inset so the 2x12 were even with the floor. Also had wire grate that fitted over the same hole. Was storage space when not being used.

I'm sorry. Oil changes just do NOT make up that much of our use time. I would much rather have the usable floor space. That's what jacks, stands, and lifts are for.
