Angry Loud Sump pump and lift station

Help...tired of the noise...
I have 2 sump pumps and a lift in the basement. They run like crazy in the spring. One of the pumps makes a loud vibrating sound everytime it runs...of course it's the one located under my bedroom :-(
The lift station makes a sledge hammer bang when it goes off. These are newer pumps (1 to 2 years) Any ideas about creating a little peace and quiet around here?

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

I don't know about the vibration, but the loud bang could be the check valve on the sump pump slamming closed when the pump shuts off and the water in the outlet pipe falls back against the valve.
