Dock Lifts Ask An Expert Request a Quote Request Service Or give us a call: 1-888-606-9415 A Dock Lift is a simple device for moving materials between a truck trailer and ground level when a truck bay or elevated dock is not an option. Dock lifts are a cost-effective loading dock solution when a lack of space or other constraints prevent the use of conventional dock leveler. Kelley dock lifts are available to handle loads ranging from 2,500 to 20,000 lbs. The low profile load platform provides easy loading/unloading of cargo from the lowered position. They can be surface mounted or pit mounted. Dock lifts also come with standard safety features, including 42” fixed height guardrails to prevent operator falls, a perimeter lip to help contain loads, a mast guard to prevent pinching and velocity fuses on the lift cylinders to prevent uncontrolled decent.
