You need to be able to locate your ceiling joists reliably and run some lag bolts into them at the right spacing, after that is done its really pretty easy. Since you will potentially be suspending hundreds of pounds where it could fall on your vehicles or people its important to get this correct. I think they are easy if you are confident in your ability to do that. No harder than mounting a wall shelf into studs just a higher cost of failure.

Isn't it better to buy two 2x4 instead of one 4x8? Just wondering. Plus it's cheaper

The 4x8 gives you 32 square feet of storage.

Two of the 2x4 would only give you 16 square feet.

You would need two of the 4x4 or 2x8 to get the same 32 square feet, either of which would be more expensive, but would give you more options in placement or varying the height, which might actually be worth it depending on your needs.

Good luck!

Seriously? 10 times, $2400 to install? We should get a slicklabors or slickhandymen forum.
Yeah I'm in the wrong business I guess if people are paying $2400 for an hour's worth of work.

Quote from LunchboxBen :
I understand metal is better, and not having to fabricate something if you don't know how, but you could make something out of wood if you didn't want to pay for this. It would be heavier and take more time, but for those people who want to complain or don't want to pay for it, you can just build one.
Yes but I question strength and sturdiness. What would you use for the bottom? Probably 3/4" plywood [homedepot.com] (in addition to a few 2x4 crossmembers) - a 4x8 of that is around $50+ these days (even 23/32 OSB is nearly $40 [homedepot.com]) and 2x4 (even if you get the crappier kind that you have to look through a whole skid to find a handful that aren't twisted to hell) are $4+ for an 8 footer [homedepot.com]. Roughly speaking not including fasteners, you'd probably pay about $80 in materials alone (at least) just for the wood for this. Add in lags and bolts (you weren't going to use drywall screws, were you?) and we're talking $100+ for a 4x8 platform that's going to take more time, make more mess and not be rated for nearly the same weight.
