Car Ramps FAQs
What length ramp do I need?
The vertical load height (from the ground to where the ramp will rest), will determine the ramp length suitable for your requirements. If your car has a lower ground clearance, you will also need to take this into consideration and an even longer ramp length will be needed.
Are the website prices shown for a single ramp?
All of our prices shown on the website are for a pair of ramps unless stated otherwise.
What gradient should my ramps be?
This will depend greatly on what type of vehicle is being loaded. A sports car has a lower ground clearance so a less steep gradient would be needed. Please contact us if further help is required.
What capacity do I need the ramp to take?
Check the weight of your vehicle and add around 150k/200kg to this to allow extra weight for the driver and fuel. This will be the maximum capacity you will want the ramp to take.
Are the capacities shown for a single ramp?
All of the capacities shown on the website are for a pair of ramps unless stated otherwise.
Should I select a ramp with extra capacity for safety?
No. Our ramps are manufactured in the EU and European TUC standards. This means they must be built with a 200% safety breaking point margin. Although they are tested and built to a 200% safety point margin, please note that if the ramps are overloaded the warranty will be void.
How do I attach the ramps safely?
We can supply 4 types of connections which are suitable for different vehicles and applications. Our rest on connections are provided as standard and they include a drilled hole with a safety pin – this type of connection works in the majority of circumstances. For car ramps we would recommend the rest on connection or the hook connection. You can view our other connection options here.
