What is a lift gate and how could it help my business?

A lift gate, also known as a lift-back, is a platform on the back of a truck that can lift or lower your product via a hydraulic system. There are a few different types of lift-gates including a conventional fold-up, rail-gate, and truck-under/fold-away gates. The type of lift you need will be dependent on the type of freight or cargo you need to get in/out of the truck and the pickup or delivery location for said freight.

Locations that tend to benefit most from using lift gate trucking include places of worship, construction sites, fairs/carnivals, and government facilities, all of which rarely have loading docks yet still need to receive freight of varying weights and sizes fairly regularly. Having a liftgate available at these types of locations can help reduce damage to your product and also minimizes injury to your employees.
