Why should I equip my loading bay with a lifting platform?

Transporting your expensive goods in and out of vehicles can be a stressful and dangerous undertaking for all involved. You have to make sure that your items are transported as efficiently as possible, whilst ensuring that your warehouse operatives are protected from injury. Selecting the right lifting platform ensures speed, efficiency and safety during the loading and unloading process.


What is a lifting platform?

A lifting platform is an effective method for off-loading vehicles with a wide range of heights that cannot typically be accommodated by a traditional dock-leveller.   A lifting platform bridges the gap between the loading bed of the vehicle and the warehouse floor to provide a safe method for goods to be transferred to and from the warehouse.

Lifting platforms can be designed for bespoke situations and to facilitate a wide range of vehicle heights and are particularly suited for loading-unloading double-deck trailers. A well specified quality lifting table will perform effectively in the toughest of environments and ensure loading-unloading is performed safely and with the greatest degree of ease.


Where can a lifting platform be purchased?

It is all well and good saying that a lifting platform will help to make your loading-unloading processes safer but this will not be the case if you do not take the time and care to choose a proven supplier and installer to carry out the job for you.
