About this video:

An incline dock slopes away from the building and the dock and provides a gradual upward angle for loading and unloading operations. Since the loading dock is positioned on an incline, drainage is less of a concern compared to docks that are level or on a decline. The more concerning items pertain to its physical condition, placement of bollards, and secure guardrails on elevated surfaces. 

Loading docks are listed in the ComSOP under the Doors, Windows, and Interior Section 6.5.11. Commercial property inspectors might come across properties that have just one or many loading docks and doors. This variety can greatly affect how long the inspection takes. It’s crucial to look into the property beforehand and provide accurate quotes for the work.
