Since 1992 we have been providing used pallet racking, used conveyors, used steel shelving, used mezzanines, and much more. 

 

Challenge us to get answers to your warehouse storage or material handling problems, issues, or concerns. We have an incredibly large inventory of used equipment on hand and should have no problem finding you the right product in a timely fashion.

 

With over 530,000 square feet of inventory in our warehouse, ASI is the largest used material handling dealer in the country. All of our inventory is stored indoors, so weather damage is not a concern when buying used equipment from us. Our main facility is located in RI, but we have shipping locations throughout the nation. This allows us to ship nationally while still maintaining competitive freight rates.

 

ASI also buys used material handling equipment, warehouse equipment, and industrial storage equipment. All used equipment must be in good working condition for ASI to consider purchasing it. We regularly buy large quantities of used conveyor, used mezzanines, used steel shelving, used pallet rack, and much, much more!

Used Dock Plates For Sale

Used dock plates come in two different varieties, used steel dock plates, and used aluminum dock plates.  They are essentially flat plates that bridge the gap between the loading dock and trailer.  Used steel dock plates are suitable for heavy loads, whereas used aluminum dock plates are for lighter loads, perfect for use with hand trucks, manual pallet jacks, and electric pallet jacks. American Surplus' stock of used dock plates feature a diamond pattern flooring for added grip and come in a variety of dimensions, heights, and capacities. The plates have beveled edges for easy traveling over and feature steel legs to secure the dock plate in place. They are ideal for low volume areas.
 
If you need a heavy-duty option, and require forklift travel, you need a used dockboard.

Used Dock Plates

The major difference between used dock plates and use dock boards is capacity. They are similar in design and look except that dock plates have no guide rails and dock boards do, and both types have skid-resistant surfaces to ensure safety. Other permanent dock equipment includes dock levelers and lifts, which are generally secured permanently at each dock opening. 
 
Used dock plates also do not contain guide rails, which is typical because they are only supporting foot traffic, warehouse carts, or pallet jacks (manual and electric). Usually, the sides of a used dock plate have brightly colored tape or spray to prevent injury due to run-off. 
 
Used dock plates are typically made out of aluminum, but heavier duty models are made of steel, and they allow for lighter loads. Hand carts and pallet jacks are used with this style, but forklifts and other lift equipment are too heavy. The capacity ranges from around 1,500 to 5,500 lbs., and they contain a 10-degree bend to allow it to be flush with the dock and the truck during loading and unloading.
 
Used dock boards are made of steel and have side rails to prevent pallet jacks and forklifts from falling off. Their decking is made of diamond pattern flooring to prevent lift equipment wheels from sliding when traveling on an incline. Capacities range from 5,000 lbs to 30,000 lbs, which is significantly higher.
