Many companies lack a loading dock for offloading freight from the back of a truck into the dock. Finding a solution that solves this particular problem has become a common issue when we hear from customers needing this product. Portable yard ramps are the solution to the problem of not having a loading dock.
Recently, a customer who contacted us had heavy hardware and power tools that they wanted to offload from a truck to supply their hardware store. Yard ramps can handle a capacity of 12,000-60,000 pounds, so they were perfect for this application. The Handi-Ramp staff was able to locate a sufficient ramp and have it shipped via flatbed days ahead of the companies scheduled offloading.
Yard Ramps are an Efficiency Tool
There are many businesses that require the movement of freight from a truck to the warehouse via the loading dock. Although a forklift alone could be used to move the freight, this can be a really dangerous, slow, and tedious operation. Yard ramps are an efficiency tool that Makes your business move at a faster pace.
Yard Ramps are Forklift Ramps
Yard ramps speed things up and provide safety measures to boot! Yard ramps are made to be used with forklifts and can be moved around with them. This is why they are also called forklift ramps. Safety chains are attached to the rear of the truck. Forklifts are used to unload the freight from the elevated back of the truck to a loading dock at ground level.
