Dock Levelers
Loading Dock Equipment

In Overhead Door Company of Central Jersey we offer a wide array of dock levelers.

A dock leveler is a bridge that covers the gap between a facility and the transport vehicle, protecting both, your products during the loading/unloading and your staff.

Before you purchase a dock leveler, you need to know what dock leveler will work for you.

First, you need to pick a type (mechanical, hydraulic or air powered dock leveler), then you need to pick the right size and finally you need to pick your dock leveler's capacity.

Don't know where to start? We are here for you. Contact us and we will be more than happy to help you make the best decision for you.
