Epoxy garage floor

The previous owner of my house put down this grey colored epoxy in the garage that is peeling up all over the place and is a big mess.It has two layers, a white layer that touches the concrete that is kind of sticky, and a grey layer on top.

I'd like to remove it all and do it the right way by prepping the concrete. Has anyone here done that before? How much can I expect to spend if I do it myself?

Gladiator tiles.

No prep needed.

How do you deal with odd floor shapes and jogs? Do they stand up to rolling a jack and lifting a car with jackstands?

Why did you pick them over epoxy?

Can you rent a buffer and sand it out ?

Easier, Nicer, Design, Easier to Clean, Softer on Feet, Can Take Them With Me.

You can cut them with a saw.

Don't know about stands, they are rated at over 250lbs per sq inch though.

I'd be willing to do the proper prep to do it right.
