Lift Gate Service

Lift Gate Service

Lift gate service is extremely useful for shippers that do not have a traditional loading doc or forklift needed to get their LTL freight into trailer. Our fleet of liftgate equipped trucks consists of 14′, 16′, 18′, 20’, 22’, 24’, & 26’ straight trucks.

At Rift Transportation Services, we provide your customers with an exceptional experience when they have a delivery or pick up that requires a carrier that is an expert in inside and liftgate deliveries.

There is not an area within our core/direct market in which we do not have excellent liftgate coverage. You will no longer have to wait an extra day or two for your liftgate shipment to deliver to your customer as we deliver it on-time, every time.

When is lift gate service needed?

In LTL shipping it is the responsibility of the shipper or consignee to load and unload their freight from the freight truck. In cases where the shipper or consignee doesn’t have a loading dock, forklift or some other way of loading their freight onto the truck, they can request a lift gate service.

Here are some common places where a lift gate is needed. Some of these will require a separate fee generally referred to a limited access fee or non-commercial fee.

  • Business warehouse without a loading dock or forklift
  • Residential pickup or delivery
  • Jobsite pickup or delivery
  • Apartment complexes

  • Office buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Retail store locations
