Submitted by T Bennett on Wed, 08/11/2021 - 09:32

Transporting your expensive goods in and out of lorries can be a stressful undertaking for all involved. You will have to make sure that your items are transported as safely as possible while ensuring that the staff members conducting the loading and unloading remain protected.

The use of the right lifting platform enables the addition of speed, efficiency and safety to this process.

 

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

 

 

What is a lifting platform?

 

A lifting platform is a bespoke piece of kit that is a must-have for any loading bay. It helps to bridge the gap between the yard and a vehicle, providing a straight and even platform for goods to be taken on and off a lorry.

Without a lifting platform, there is a risk that items could topple over as they are taken in and out of transit, meaning that you could end up with a hefty repair bill if anything is broken. This situation also poses a safety risk to your employees.

What's more, your lifting platform can be designed to rise to the heights of the upper-deck of a double-deck trailer, so even the toughest of loading jobs can be completed with ease thanks to this sophisticated piece of kit.

 

Where can a lifting platform be purchased?

 

It's all well and good saying that a lifting platform will help to make your loading yard a safer place to work, but this will not be the case if you do not choose a trusted installer to carry out the job for you. However, this is where Easilift Loading Systems Ltd can step in and help.
