Maximum Tailgate Dimensions

ShipCanada provides liftgate / Tailgate pickup and delivery service to and from all points within Canada. Many Small businesses or residential shippers do not have loading docks of forklifts at their disposal to accommodate the lifting of large freight pieces into commercial trucks.  In the this case, ShipCanada will dispatch a smaller 24-26′ straight truck with a hydraulic liftgate to assist with loading.


With liftgate service there are certain restrictions on weight and dimensions you should be aware of:

Canadian Tailgate load size Maximums

Max Length 96″
Max Width 48″
Max Height 84″
Max Weight 1500

U.S.A. Tailgate load size Maximums

Max Length 84″
Max Width 54″
Max Height 84″
Max Weight 1500
