I my old forklift finally died and I went to find an inexpensive used replacement. Paul and his team were so friendly and honest that I was able to make a purchase that day. He had his team totally service it and insisted on including new tires at no charge. On top of that he even paid me something for my 1969 Toyota Forklift which a hauled away. These guys (and gals) are great!

I have been searching for a company that would sell a lesser amount of pallet storage systems to complete my storage at my office. These folks gladly did so. I drove to pick up the components, they had everything ready when I got there, smooth pick up. definitely would recommend them and use them again as well.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

A dock leveler is a device commonly installed at loading docks to provide a seamless connection between a truck bed and the dock, enhancing the ease and efficiency of loading and unloading goods.

There are two main types of dock levelers:

Pit Style Dock Levelers are installed into a recessed pit at the dock’s edge. This design allows the dock leveler platform to sit flush with the warehouse floor, enabling smooth and efficient loading and unloading of goods between the facility and trucks or trailers.

An Edge of Dock Leveler is mounted to the edge of the loading dock, eliminating the need for a pit. It provides a bridge between the dock and the truck, facilitating the transfer of goods and accommodating smaller to medium-sized loads.

Each type has its advantages and is suited to different applications. If you have questions on what’s best for your business, please give us a call at 305-315-8623 – we’d be happy to help!

Dock levelers create a secure and level surface that acts as a bridge between your facility’s floor and truck or trailer beds.  This significantly improves productivity and is far safer than other solutions such as dock plates.

Factors to consider include the types of vehicles being serviced, the frequency of use, load capacities, and the available budget.

Our dock equipment professionals can help determine the most suitable option, just give us a call at (305) 315-8623 to get started.

Dock Levelers are useful for a wide range of industries, including:​

  • Warehousing
  • Manufacturing
  • Shipping & Logistics
  • Distribution Centers
  • Logistics Hubs
  • Retail & E-Commerece
  • Cold Storage
  • Food Storage Facilities
  • and many more

Yes, dock levelers are designed to accommodate a variety of truck and trailer sizes. However, it’s crucial to ensure that the dock leveler’s dimensions and weight capacity align with the range of vehicles you’ll be servicing.

Yes, many dock levelers are designed for retrofitting onto existing docks. However, we highly recommend checking compatibility before making a decision.

Our team has the experience and expertise to guide you in the right direction, simply give us a call today at 305-315-8623.

The weight capacity varies depending on the type and model of the dock leveler. It’s crucial to choose a leveler with a capacity that matches or exceeds the maximum load expected in your facility.

Yes, dock levelers can be integrated with other loading dock equipment, such as dock seals, shelters, and vehicle restraints, to create a comprehensive and efficient loading dock system.

The lifespan of a dock leveler can vary based on factors such as usage, maintenance, and environmental conditions. However, on average, a well-maintained dock leveler can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years.

Several signs may indicate that it’s time to replace a dock leveler:

  1. Visible Wear and Tear: If you observe significant wear, rust, or corrosion on critical components like the deck, lip, or frame, it may be a sign that the dock leveler is reaching the end of its lifespan.

  2. Decreased Performance: If the dock leveler is no longer operating as smoothly as before, experiencing issues such as slow operation, misalignment, or difficulty in raising and lowering, it could be an indication that essential components are wearing out.

  3. Structural Damage: Damage to the structural integrity of the dock leveler, including bent or twisted components, may compromise its safety and functionality, necessitating replacement.

  4. Obsolete Technology: If the dock leveler is outdated and lacks modern safety features or energy-efficient technology, it might be cost-effective to replace it with a newer, more advanced model.

  5. Frequent Repairs: If the dock leveler requires frequent repairs and maintenance, the cumulative cost of upkeep may make it more economical to invest in a new, more reliable system.

To determine the optimal time for replacement, it’s advisable to conduct regular inspections and maintenance and follow manufacturer recommendations. Additionally, consider the evolving needs of your facility and whether a more advanced dock leveler could enhance efficiency and safety.
