If you or a loved one is considering installing an EZ-ACCESS® aluminum ramp system, make sure you speak with us, the experts at EZ-ACCESS®. Installing an aluminum ramp system can increase your independence and mobility in and around your home. Some people may choose to take a more inexpensive route by choosing to purchase used aluminum ramps. Today, EZ-ACCESS® would like to help you highlight some reasons why a used aluminum ramp may not be the best solution for your home.
You can go on websites such as eBay and Craigslist for your area and research aluminum wheelchairs ramps for your home, but BUYER BEWARE, these ramps may not be fit and designed for your home or layout. Also, you may not know how safe they are to use based on if the ramps were used correctly, how much weight was on them every day, if they were maintained and most importantly, or if all the hardware and parts come with it.
EZ-ACCESS® aluminum ramps are constructed from the highest quality aluminum that doesn’t deteriorate, lose any structural supports or oxidize. These examples are more great reasons to choose an aluminum ramp system from EZ-ACCESS®.
Another concern to be aware of, if you’re still considering purchasing used equipment, is how much flex, or warping, has affected the structure of the aluminum ramp. If the ramp has been misused, the structure may not be level, may not support you or your wheelchair and may not line up properly with your home.
Let us at EZ-ACCESS® properly evaluate your home to determine what type of aluminum ramp system would work the best for your needs, your home and most of all your wallet. EZ-ACCESS® is here to help provide you with the best aluminum ramp system that your neighbors will be jealous of and to provide a safe aluminum ramp system that you can use every day.
Please contact us at EZ-ACCESS® today with any questions regarding our portable or threshold ramps or Pathway® Modular Ramp System.
