Improve Productivity with Portable Loading Docks

By Rachel Martin Subscribe to RSS | March 12th 2012 | Views:

While a regular shipping and receiving location is generally the norm, it may be necessary for your employees to regularly load and unload materials at different places around your facility. If that is the case, you may want to consider portable loading docks to make this a faster and more efficient process. Finding the right used loading ramp or portable loading dock for your business can help your employees get their work done in a safer and better way.

Even though portable loading docks can be quite heavy, they are still built for overall mobility, which means they are constructed from lighter weight materials like aluminum. You need to be extra careful when shopping for a used loading ramp because you must be sure you get one that matches your specifications. Remember that lighter weight material often translates into lower total weight capacity. Portable loading docks are often ideal for situations where your employees are working with hand trucks, pallet trucks, or dollies.

Portable loading docks are made to be easy to move from place to place, because the whole point is being able to meet your demand for loading and unloading wherever that need arises. You need to be aware, however, of the kind of loading you’ll be doing. For example, if you frequently use forklifts to load and unload, a sturdier material for your used loading ramp may be necessary to prevent any safety risks.

That brings us to the most important consideration for any used loading ramp: safety. You need to know that when you receive your used loading ramp, you’re getting something that your employees can rely on day in and day out. When you shop at, you can be sure that every product comes with standard industry safety features. Because we understand that you never want to hear about the failure of your portable loading docks or yard ramps, or risk your employee’s safety, each product has these standard features. Consider adjustability and whether the surface of your dock is non-stick for easier transportation.

Before you commit to a yard ramp or loading dock, think about all the specifications you require. Think about what kind of weight your loading dock will need to bear, as well as any other features which are specific to your needs before you buy or lease. You can choose from many different customizations in most cases, and this will allow you to find the perfect fit for your situation.
