    High Performance Dock Lifts for Commercial Retail Applications.


Lifts used in the transfer of merchandise between loading dock and kitchen, store room, or mezzanine levels of commercial buildings

In addition to special solutions for industrial applications, Autoquip also has many products developed for commercial applications.  From indoor environments like restaurants, department stores, or hotels, to outdoor environments like loading docks, rental storage units, and mobile advertising vehicles. Our technical sales staff and engineering design team will help you analyze your particular industry application and present you with a number of potential design solutions. 

We also recognize that employee turnover can be an issue in retail environments.  This fact often contributes to administrative challenges like training, throughput, and safety.  At Autoquip, we help our retail customers overcome these challenges by providing material handling solutions that are simple to operate, maximize employee productivity, and provide the highest level of personnel safety. 

  • Typical lifting and handling solutions that Autoquip has designed and manufactured for the Retail Industry include:

    Loading Dock Lifts Portable and fixed loading dock scissors lifts, using single or three-phase power, transfer loads between dock area and trucks of varying height.

    Mezzanine Material Lifts Freight lifts and high-travel scissors lifts transfer pallets or unit loads of merchandise vertically between landings for storage, processing, etc.
