Since a four post lift excels at storage, it seems like drip trays are a
good idea!

I have a Direct Lift ProPark 9 - I bought that model because it has ramps a
few inches wider than other models. This allows it to fit the narrow track
of my smaller cars (MGA, Alfa Romeo) and also my F250 pick-up.

I thought about a lift with a moveable ramp but that makes both drip trays &
a jacking bridge problematic.

For your lift with moveable ramps, how about a few spring tension shower
curtain poles? They could be fairly easily adjusted for the varying ramp
widths and could then support a few light weight drip trays.
