Shipping Aerial Work Platform & Lift Tables

Aerial work platform lifts are widely used for elevated access in various industries. There is a variety of options available such as boom lifts, telehandlers, man lifts, scissor lifts, and forklifts. Transporting these lifts can be challenging, especially when you need to move them for a long distance. However, these lifts can be a great solution for many different needs, including warehouse operations, construction work and maintenance. There are different models available to suit your specific requirements. If you are in Canada, we can arrange for delivery of the lift to your desired location.

DIY Moving Can Be Difficult

Your AWP may be an essential part of your operation, and you simply can't get by without it. Yet, loading it up for long-distance transport can be difficult, time-consuming, and even dangerous. In addition, you'll need to have the proper equipment, such as a flatbed truck, a scissor lift, or a trailer capable of carrying oversized items to guarantee safety.

A scissor lift is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment in DIY. It allows workers to reach heights that would otherwise be impossible. However, it comes with its own set of challenges. For instance, transporting the scissor lift to different places could be difficult due to its size and weight. Moreover, loading and unloading it can be a time-consuming task. The scissor lift is also an expensive piece of equipment, and keeping it in good condition is crucial for productivity. Regular maintenance and repair of its parts are required to ensure it functions at its best. Additionally, painting and cleaning the lift can be necessary to keep it in good condition.

Flexibility is essential in warehousing and logistics, and using this equipment can improve productivity by making tasks easier to accomplish. Lifting heavy loads or reaching items at height can be done with ease using a scissor lift. However, using a crane or forklift may sometimes be more appropriate.

It is advisable to seek the assistance of experts when it comes to the use of a scissor lift. They can help with installation, maintenance, and repair. They can also provide training on how to use the equipment safely and efficiently.

Key Considerations for Shipping AWP Lifts

Shipping Aerial Work Platform (AWP) lifts, which include boom lifts and man lifts, requires careful planning and consideration of several important factors to ensure the safe and efficient transportation of these valuable products. Whether you are a business owner looking to expand your inventory or a manufacturer preparing to ship AWP lifts to customers, here are five crucial considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Type and Quality of AWP Lifts
    • Before shipping, identify the specific type of AWP lift you are dealing with. There are various types available, including scissor lifts, telescopic boom lifts, and articulating boom lifts. Each type has unique dimensions and characteristics that can affect shipping requirements.
    • Ensure that the AWP lifts you are shipping meet high-quality standards. Reliable brands and manufacturers should be chosen to ensure the safety and performance of the equipment during transport and subsequent use.
  2. Inspection and Maintenance
    • Conduct a thorough inspection of the AWP lifts before shipping. This inspection should include checking for any damage, mechanical issues, or potential safety hazards.
    • Schedule any necessary maintenance or repairs to address issues identified during the inspection. A well-maintained product is more likely to arrive at its destination in optimal condition.
  3. Packaging and Securement
    • Proper packaging and securement are essential to protect AWP lifts during transit. This includes using appropriate packaging materials such as crates or custom-made protective coverings.
    • Secure the AWP lift within the packaging to prevent movement during shipping. Use straps, tie-downs, and cushioning materials to ensure that the product remains stable and intact.
  4. Operator Training
    • Consider the qualifications and training of the individuals responsible for loading, unloading, and transporting AWP lifts. Ensure that they are trained and certified to handle such equipment safely.
    • Provide clear instructions to the shipping personnel regarding the correct handling and transport procedures for AWP lifts to prevent accidents and damage.
  5. Range of Products and Customer Needs
    • Understand the range of AWP lifts your business offers and match them to the specific needs of your customers. Different businesses may require lifts with varying heights, weight capacities, and features.
    • Communicate with customers to gather information about their site conditions, access requirements, and any additional accessories or services they may need. This will help you tailor your shipping and delivery process to meet their expectations.
