Everyone is looking for a good value, whether it is for a car, jacket, or dinner. It is an uplifting feeling to know that you just purchased something for less than its original cost. Now, we’re all for getting a great deal, when it makes sense. If you or your employees’ safety relies on the quality of that product, you might just want to reconsider that “buy one get one” sale.
If your industrial business needs a mobile yard ramp, think of it as an investment. You will get a return if you invest right and that means investing in quality. Skimping on a yard ramp, just to save a quick buck, can cause you to ultimately pay the price.
It is no secret that products that cost cheap are usually made cheap. Saving yourself some money in the beginning might end up costing you later on. For example, if you purchase a cheap and consequently poorly constructed mobile yard ramp, there is a good chance you might have some product failure. Maybe the hydraulic system broke or the treads wear down after only a few months use. Whatever the failure, you have now spent money on a product that can’t perform. So you have to purchase another mobile yard ramp. Even if that original yard ramp was half the price of a quality yard ramp, you are now at a breakeven plus the headache of actually going through the purchase process.
In addition, you’ve likely had some downtime or went through a period of inefficiency due to the lack of a yard ramp. This is incredibly costly to an industrial company that relies on moving mass quantities of product on and off trucks.
Workplace safety is one of the most important aspects of an industrial company. When you’re dealing with heavy loads, heavy machinery, and powerful equipment, there are some real risks. If you start adding in low cost, low quality yard ramps, you are putting your entire staff at risk of injury. Investing in a quality yard ramp will not only guarantee product longevity but also staff longevity.
