A liftgate is a motorized platform attached to the back of a truck’s trailer that will physically lower your large and/or heavy items to the ground so you can take them inside your business or residence. Please keep in mind that the truck driver is not responsible for unloading the truck and will most likely not help you. For large pieces of equipment, in particular, a lift gate is the only way you will be able to get your shipment safely off of the truck if you do not have a forklift and/or a delivery dock. If you wish to add a lift gate after your order has shipped, nearly all freight carriers will charge an additional fee on top of our $60 lift gate fee. To avoid this situation, your best bet is to order the lift gate when you place your order!
If you have any questions or are unsure of whether you should order a lift-gate, please contact us and we will be glad to make a recommendation.
