Planned Maintenance

Regularly planned maintenance (PM) is critical to making sure any loading dock runs efficiently. Routine maintenance is proven to minimize operation interruptions, decrease heating and cooling costs, and even prevent injuries. Our comprehensive dock maintenance is tailored to the layout and machinery of your loading space. During a PM, we inspect 35 different dock parts and components to make sure each is performing efficiently. They include:

  • Batteries, cables, and rollers
  • Front and rear hinges
  • Pit cleanout
  • Electric system functionality
  • Pumps and motors on all equipment
  • Platform, decks, and lips for cracks and deformations
  • Hydraulics and hydraulic system for fluid levels
  • Cylinders and switches

In addition to a full inspection, we also clean, lubricate, and adjust parts to make sure all dock areas and equipment are working soundly and safely. After the PM is complete, we promptly send full documentation of the procedure along with any modifications performed to track each piece of machinery for quality assurance.
