Why Is Dock Maintenance So Important?

ProductYour company’s doors and dock equipment are vital, but often overlooked, assets. A properly functioning dock keeps products and supplies flowing smoothly in and out of your facility, minimizes the possibility of on-site accidents and energy loss, and keeps unwanted pests or debris from entering your facility. Unfortunately, scheduled dock maintenance is not a high priority with most companies which means that when a problem does happen or a piece of equipment becomes unusable, both time, production and money are lost trying to fix it on the fly.

What kinds of preventative maintenance does Beuschel Sales recommend? Consider the following:

  • Dock levelers
  • Trailer restraints
  • Dock doors
  • High speed doors
  • Compactors

If your company depends on any of the above to function, you need to make sure that they are all regularly inspected and that anything not working properly or showing signs of wear is repaired or addressed. This includes inspection, cleaning, and lubrication which helps reduce the possibility of dock down time and the lost revenue that results from it.

What services are a part of our preventative maintenance schedule at Beuschel Sales? We offer:
