Mobile Vs Permanent: What to Consider

When deciding between mobile and permanent loading platforms, there are a few key factors you’ll want to keep in mind to help narrow down your selection. For example, while permanent solutions are fantastic for facilities and operations that have set deliveries and operations that are near uniform in loading requirements, mobile platforms afford greater flexibility and can be moved throughout your facility should the need arise. Additionally, due to their versatility, many purchasers enjoy the extra ROI offered by mobile units, as they can be used to accommodate a wide range of needs.

Should you choose a mobile unit such as the MAUI system (more on that below!), you’ll also want to consider what kind of surfaces you’ll be moving it across, whether or not you require a hitch or forklift pockets, and how you plan to implement transport when needed (do you need a forklift? Would you prefer a specialized product like the Maui Mover?). Knowing where and how you intend to use your mobile loading platform or rolling stairs will make it easier for Northern Platforms Ltd to help recommend the right piece of equipment for your specific operation. Our goal at Northern Platforms Ltd is to help you to make sure you make the most informed choice possible!
