Sturdy and Secure

“This ramp is extremely well built: extruded aluminum ramp sections, the welds, the hinges etc. I’m a retired engineer, and I would recommend this product to anybody. Did I mention that this product is proudly MADE IN USA?”
– Anonymous

“It is sturdy and well-made and accommodates my husband’s 407.4 lb. power chair with ease. Plus being in two parts, I am able to manage it by myself a half at a time.”
– C.J.

Versatile Use

“I am in the live sound biz and use this ramp for unloading heavy pro sound equipment, sometimes I have to bridge the back of the truck to a stage or bridge a stair case. This is a very solid and safe way to load and unload gear. Folds up fast and stores in the truck easily.”
– Jim B.

“I actually bought this ramp for my aging dog and it is helping her tremendously. However, over the weekend, two of my friends carried an extremely heavy piece of furniture up the ramp (I’m guessing about 700 lbs. of total weight) and the ramp performed beautifully! I would highly recommend.”
– Anonymous

Easy and Convenient

“This has been a real improvement for dealing with my ailing parent, I am able to get her in and out of the house a lot easier and with more confidence since we have this sturdy ramp to bridge the steep step. Handy suitcase style design is just the thing to make this even more portable.”
– Willa W.

“This is a well USA made product. My father is currently using a wheelchair and I needed help in getting the wheelchair down the stairs…this product was my solution. Because it is portable, we are still able to use the stairs and when it is fully folded; it does not take a lot of room. I highly recommend this product.”
– Frances M.
