Loading dock platforms can be added on to yard ramps to create portable loading ramps. Loading dock platforms provide additional length and width for your application.
Place a Handi-Ramp® Portable Loading Dock in front of any dock or rail-car door and you will have access to three loading and un-loading positions immediately. The Portable Loading Dock affords 90 degree turn ability for safe forklift maneuvering. The Handi-Ramp Portable Loading Dock is a fast, economical way to expand your dock area and increase freight handling capabilities without spending money to build a new loading dock. You can also use this to extend your existing dock, and take it with you if you change locations!
This Portable Loading Dock can easily be relocated to other areas of your yard where a free standing loading dock may be needed, meaning more trucks or rail-cars can be serviced while freeing up other critical dock doors.
The dock is available in standard sizes (8′ (W) x 8′ (L), 8′ (W) x 8′ (L) and 10′ (W) x 12′ (L)) or custom sizes and capacities to suit your individual requirements.
Optional adjustable, telescoping legs of 44″ and 55″ allow elevations to meet most dock height requirements. For remote areas where a fixed dock is unavailable, use the Portable Loading Dock along with a Handi-Ramp® Yard Dock Ramp for loading and unloading trailers with a forklift. For any questions or if you are ready to purchase your own Portable Loading Dock please call us at 847-680-7700.
This is an example of how one of our customers is using this cost effective and versatile tool:
The San Diego County Sherriff’s Department Regional Firearms Training Center needed help with their loading dock. Their existing dock had an overhang that prevented trucks over a certain height from using their dock. The solution for this problem was the Hand-Ramp Portable Loading Dock. When placed in position at their dock, it effectively moved the edge of their dock 8 ft out away from the building, allowing any size truck to be unloaded! Problem solved!
