Liftgate / Residential Disclaimer

A liftgate is a special hydraulic platform fitted on the back of a truck that can raise or lower a shipment to and from the ground.

Commercial trucks are designed to load and unload onto loading docks. When shipments are being made to addresses without access to a dock, liftgate equipment is needed.

Not all trucks are equipped with liftgates, so you will need to indicate at the point of purchase if a liftgate is required. If you don’t communicate that a liftgate is needed, delivery trucks may arrive without the required equipment and won’t be able to complete the delivery. This could cause a delay in the shipment and added delivery fees.
