5 Reasons Lenworth is the Best Choice for Dock Levelers in Toronto


Need a dock leveler for your Toronto facility? Go with Lenworth.

For facility managers looking for dock levelers in Toronto and the GTA, there are a number of potential providers to choose from. But in order to make the best decision possible, there are certain intangibles to consider, such as:

  1. Is the quality and variety of their selection up to par?
  2. Do they offer accredited installation and post-purchase maintenance?
  3. Will they respond to the unique demands of my facility?

To ensure both an excellent product and that all these questions are sufficiently addressed, Lenworth is the best choice for dock leveler installation and maintenance in Toronto. Read on to learn about five ways we go above and beyond for facilities in the GTA.

1. We are committed to doing things right & providing a variety of services to facilities in Toronto

2. Our team specializes in dock levelers

Lenworth has been an industry leader in the dock and door industry for more than ten years. Being an industry leader requires a strong commitment to continuous learning and investment in your staff. Our accredited specialists have undergone extensive training to properly install and service different models of dock levelers.

We understand the importance of servicing each facility according to its unique demands. Our highly-trained specialists will work with facility managers at every stage of the process, from planning and consideration to purchasing and installation. We work tirelessly to ensure that our clients get the most out of their transition to their new products.

3. Our dock levelers are built for strength and stability to make loading docks in Toronto safer

No matter the weight, volume or quantity associated loading and unloading procedures, employees should always feel confident in a seamless, supported connection between the loading dock and the truck. Dock levelers act as a bridge between the truck and the bay, all the while ensuring that the loading and unloading process is smooth and safe.

Safe, strong and easy to use, we offer hydraulic and mechanical dock levelers capable of supporting up to 80,000lbs. And to ensure you’re getting a quality product, both of these models come with a 12-year structural warranty.


4. Lenworth offers both mechanical and hydraulic models to suit a variety of applications

Our line of hydraulic and mechanical dock levelers provide consistent, balanced support and stability that employees and facility managers can count on year after year. And while both types of dock levelers are manufactured in the GTA according to the highest standards, each carries certain features that make them better suited in different applications.

Mechanical Dock Levelers: Operate by means of a release chain. The operator engages the lift spring by pulling the chain. The deck then rises up and extends into its locked position. From there, the operator simply “walks” the deck down into place in order for the loading or unloading to begin. Because they function without electricity, mechanical dock levelers are a more economical option for lower-volume facilities.

Hydraulic Dock Levelers: Instead of manual action, hydraulic dock levelers operate by means of a single push-button control. This makes them ideal in high-traffic facilities that handle frequent, large-quantity deliveries. For a low-maintenance, efficient and easy-to-operate loading dock leveler, a hydraulic system is your best option.

5. Lenworth offers the best pre- and post-purchase care and customer service in Toronto

Our commitment to ensuring our clients get the most out of their dock levelers doesn’t end with the purchase of the product itself. After the initial inquiry, one of our representatives will tour a facility to gain a complete understanding of its unique needs and which type of dock leveler would be most beneficial. Following a purchase, all of our clients have the opportunity to join our Preferred Service Program (PSP).

What is the Preferred Service Program?

The PSP is a membership program that facility managers can join in to ensure their facilities are operating at maximum efficiency, and to maintain facility equipment that is safe & reliable. It’s a preventative maintenance service that mitigates facility risk, prevent accidents and boost productivity. There are a number of things our Preferred Service Customers can take advantage of when they join the program. These include:

  1. Exclusive discounts on parts
  2. Routine facility inspections
  3. Guaranteed 4-hour response time
  4. Fixed labour costs for one year

Don’t settle for sub-par or delayed services. Lenworth believes in providing the best, most complete preventative maintenance services possible no matter the situation. This means ensuring reduced service costs, increased reliability of equipment, improved response time, better productivity and more effective compliance with current health & safety regulations.
