Intercon Truck Is Your Baltimore or Philadelphia Area Liftgate Dealer

A hydraulic liftgate is permanently installed on the rear of your work truck or van. The liftgate is necessary to facilitate the safe handling of materials from a loading dock or the ground up to the level of the truck bed. When choosing a liftgate it is important to know the weight of your intended freight as well as the maximum capacity of the liftgate. Under no circumstances should you overload the liftgate platform. Additionally, check your liftgate daily before you load it to make sure it is working properly. Intercon has been installing and maintaining liftgates from top manufacturers for over 20 years. We are uniquely qualified to help you choose the proper liftgate for your vehicle and working application. Call or REQUEST A QUOTE today.
