Every loading dock should have a dock lift. It is an essential piece of dock equipment. Without a dock lifts, trucks with odd height differentials are not well served by your dock. The prime example is the brown UPS truck. If your loading dock is optimized for handling semi-trailers with a dock plate or dock board, you will soon see that the Brown UPS truck is too low for your dock. The height difference is also too much for a dock plate or dock board to safely handle. So now what should you do? This question is answered with an A Plus Warehouse dock lift.

Of course, one solution to the scenario mentioned above is that a worker can simply bend over the dock and hand boxes down to the UPS driver. This can work for a few 10-pound boxes per day, but can be a problematic approach with many heavier boxes. Not only can this repetitive action cause back strain, but over long periods of time it can also cause very serious injuries and more workman compensation claims.
The better solution to handle boxes in this scenario is a loading dock lift! They are incredibly efficient and safe. A lift typically is at least 6 feet deep. The upfront cost is worth it when thinking about all the savings from potential workman compensation claims and higher efficiency.
