What is a lift-gate (Tailgate - No Dock) and when would I need to order one?

A lift-gate is a hydraulic platform mounted on the rear of a truck that is used to raise large, heavy items from street level high enough to be loaded into the truck.  A lift-gate is needed on either the pickup or the delivery end of a shipment when there is no freight loading dock.

Note: When booking a freight shipment, RS Freight Quoting requires you to indicate if a lift-gate is needed for the pickup and/or at delivery.
