Loading and Unloading anything from a truck is normally really hard work. It can be even harder since most of the time you need to enlist a team of people to pass things off to each other. By using a mobile ramp not only will you make it easier but you will be a lot more efficient. They are also really easy to use and you will wish you used ramps sooner.
It’s pretty obvious why using a ramp, in general, is already really beneficial. If your truck is carrying anything really heavy or large, for example, a car, it is clear why you need a ramp. There would be no safe way that a person, or a team of people, would be able to get those types of items down from a truck.
Even with smaller items that a group of people would be able to carry, a ramp is still the much safer option. The alternative of having the items being passed off means that there is a lot of bending at the back and reaching up. This is dangerous and strenuous on the back and could lead to injury. Also with a ramp, no one would be tempted to walk with a heavy object and risk farther injury.
For both these reasons, a mobile yard ramp makes loading and unloading easier, safer and far more efficient.
Why not just use a loading dock?
If you have a loading dock you might not think a mobile yard ramp is useful, however, you would be wrong. What happens if you use a different truck than normal and the height no longer matches with the dock? Or if you have to unload or load a truck outside? or at a different location? These situations will come and without a mobile yard ramp unloading and loading will be very difficult.
Mobile Ramp Design equal Efficiency
Mobile Yard Ramps are made to be easily moved because of the wheels attached at the bottom. So no matter where you need it, your yard ramp can be there at a moment’s notice, and products can be moved on or off your truck as necessary.
The ease of mobility also allows for savings. You only need to invest in one mobile ramp since it can be brought to wherever you need it.
