Loading dock maintenance is a part of owning or managing a business or facility that handles large amounts of freight. When neglected your loading docks and door systems will be more prone to failure, which as you know will cause downtime and you’ll be losing productivity and money. Loading dock systems and overhead door systems have many moving parts that are put through their paces every single day.
DoorTech Industries is a full service loading dock and door service company. Our skilled technicians are well versed in the systems that operate your loading docks. From mechanical to electrical to hydraulic we’ve got your loading dock covered. Not just loading docks, we also provide service for overhead door systems, high speed door systems and other commercial door applications. Based out of Surrey, BC we are centrally located to provide our services to anyone who needs us in the lower mainland.
Why Would You Want A Maintenance Program For Your Loading Dock?
Often, the repairs we make on loading docks around the lower mainland are to fix problems that could have been avoided with a regular maintenance program. At the very least a problem could have been spotted long before it became a catastrophic failure, resulting in your phone call to us.
When our technician is at your premises to repair your loading dock, it would be a good time to discuss our preventative maintenance programs that we offer for busy loading docks and warehouses in the Vancouver area.
These maintenance programs are custom tailored to your individual business or facility needs. If you operate a high volume facility then we can inspect and maintain your loading docks on 90 to 120 day cycles. When you stop and think about it… A lot can happen with a business in 90 days. If you’re unloading 5 trucks a day times 90 days that’s 450 trucks that been through your loading dock in 3 months. That’s over 450 cycles of your truck restraint systems, over 450 cycles of the hydraulics in your dock levelers and you’re starting to see how much wear and tear can happen.
What Does Loading Dock and Door Maintenance Include?
There are a number of different independent systems that make your loading dock work smoothly and our technicians will go through all of them with a fine tooth comb every 90-120 days. Loading dock maintenance would include:
- Regular Loading Dock Inspections
- Lubrication and Hydraulic Fluids When Required
- Part Replacement (When necessary – and with prior permission)
- Dock Bumper Repair and Replacement
- Dock Leveler Inspections and Maintenance
- Commercial Door Inspections and Maintenance
Loading Dock and Door Maintenance Vancouver, BC
If you only have a single loading dock at your commercial facility then maintenance might not be such a time consuming job. However, if you’ve got a dozen or more loading docks and many employees and 3rd party freight companies using them everyday, it can become a very tedious management job. Loading docks that are poorly maintained are often the cause of workplace accidents across Canada and we don’t even need to discuss that.
For the safety of your employees and others that use your facility it’s important you have a professional company maintain your loading dock systems.
