A good quality/strong 4 post drive-on setup also gives you an easy access way to get under the car & set-up/adjust stuff like suspension preload with all the weight in the car & compressing the suspension. It's just like doing it on the ground with "setup" blocks, but you don't have to crawl around on the shop floor to adjust anything.

If a concrete slab was poured without a vapor barrier under it, and the floor ends up with a condensation problem, using an epoxy based sealer on the floor is supposed to help stop/reduce the moisture problem. But some of the epoxy floor sealers out there can/do often chip, scratch, or get burned all the way down to the concrete with normal use (from floor jacks, jack stands, cutting-welding, etc). From what I have seen it kinda seems like the chipping/scratching gets worse if the epoxy is applied too thick to the floor.

I used a moisture barrier plus sealed mine with a pool and patio sealer from Sherwin Williams and seems to be holding up great. Been a little over 1 1/2 years.
