Had the starter cable recall done this week and noticed that the dealer lifted the car by the sill points at the rear then some big brackets fixed to the floor just behind the front wheels, is this how it should be done?

Yes, although they more usually use a car lift.

Was the frame a big X-brace?
Properly fitted I believe some of them can turn the car over on its side.

They prefer to be able to stand when working under the body, it's safer and there's more light.

Thanks for the reply, sorry my question was not worded very well, the dealer used the normal 4 post lift they have, the one with the 4 arms with pads on the end, they positioned the 2 rear pads under the sill of the car, where you would fit the normal scissor jack (if you had one) to change a rear tyre, but the front pads they positioned on a section of the floor of the car, it is a box section with 2 large holes in just behind where the front wheel is. It seemed odd that they didn't use the front sill lifting points and I was wondering if this is normal ?
