White Glove Delivery - Available -

What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a Call Before Delivery within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your large item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

Cardinal Detecto DC1 Details

Disposing of heavy trash bags can pose serious health problems for your employees. With the Cardinal Detecto DC1 Dump Commander mobile trash can lift, you can reduce workers' compensation claims while streamlining your operation! Built to lift up to 150 lb., the Dump Commander does all the heavy lifting for you! Featuring ergonomic handles and four swivel casters, it takes minimal effort to move even the heaviest loads of trash to the dumpster. Plus, the unit is designed to fit through standard-sized 36" x 79" doorways, so it can be stored inside and close to your trash cans for convenience.

Once the unit is in position, simply press the "Up" button on your handheld remote controller until the trash bag drops into the dumpster. Then release the "Up" button, and press the "Down" button until the trash can is completely lowered. This entire process takes just 25 seconds, and since the trash is dropped using gravity instead of being pulled and stretched, you'll never need to worry about bags ripping and having to deal with spilled garbage. The controller comes with an 8' cord so your staff can stand back at a safe distance while the lift is in use. Plus, the cord can be unplugged and used as a key, ensuring that only your authorized personnel can operate the machine.

The Dump Commander features two rechargeable 24V batteries that power the unit for an estimated 4-6 days! They charge in just 6 hours using a standard 110V industrial-grade extension cord (sold separately), and thanks to the weatherproof plug cover, the unit can be left outdoors without fear of damaging the port. Boasting a durable ABS plastic outer enclosure, this powered lift has the strength it needs to stand up to commercial use. It accommodates 33, 44, and 55 gallon trash cans, and it can be used to empty garbage into dumpsters ranging from 48" to 82" tall with an opening lip thickness of 1 1/2" to 2 1/4".

    trash employees instead weekly more minutes lifting heavy fill employee
  • Arrange by 
    This product took care of all my heavy can lifting needs! Now I send out one employee instead or 3 or 4. I can now also fill my dumpster to the top and reduce my trash service to twice weekly instead of three times weekly $$$. Also, I don't have to go chasing down employees outside that take 20 minutes to take out trash. No more spills in the parking lot. Quick in and out with trash. Worth every penny!!!
