Liftgate repair service experts are qualified professionals who inspect, repair and maintain this area on any heavy-duty truck. Commercial trucks need a liftgate in order to safely load and unload cargo. The performance of the liftgate can affect the quality of the work performed, and in some cases, the profits earned from each job. A malfunctioning lift gate also poses a serious job hazard, which can make the business liable for any injuries or damaged property as a result of a liftgate failure.
Liftgate Repair Service, Overview
Every truck that has a liftgate will be loading and unloading various types of materials on and off the truck. The liftgate is the safest method for performing these actions because it is powered by a hydraulic system that raises and lowers the heavy gate with an electric switch, which is located on the side of the exterior of the truck. The typical liftgate is capable of handling loads that weigh thousands of pounds.
During the work life of any truck, these liftgates will be subject to the stress and strain caused by repeatedly lifting heavy loads. There is a normal level of maintenance that can be anticipated, but many truck owners fail to keep this maintenance schedule properly. This can contribute to a breakdown of the liftgate, which carries risks to the operator. The loss of revenue for the business is just one of the risks faced by a company that has a truck with a malfunctioning liftgate; it could also seriously injure the driver and work crew.

There are many signs that the liftgate needs repair or maintenance work, and our team is familiar with all of these issues. For example, there might be an unusual amount of lurching as the gate rises and lowers. There might be noises that seem to indicate a problem. Fluid leaks are another warning sign, and the performance of the gate itself should also be monitored. Liftgates should move up and down smoothly without jerking or stopping. If the gate is unusually slow, this could also indicate an underlying problem.
