Our rental yard ramps are a cost-effective alternative to purchasing, especially if you require only occasional use of one or you want to try before you buy. To help reduce freight costs, most of our inventory is located within 250 miles of 90% of the population!

There is no end to the solutions available for fabricating and combining mobile yard ramps, stationary dock ramps, platform systems, hinge plates, dock boards and components, edge-of-dock levelers and mobility mechanisms. Call us at 888.977.4224 to discuss your requirements.

A terrific option: About half of our customers take advantage of our Turnkey Delivery and Installation Services. We can literally do the heavy lifting for your load, off-load, and dock installation needs.

We’ve researched, contacted, and maintained a network of expert installers, wreckers, welders, and other specialized services. We are able to provide these services without the customer needing to hunt, negotiate pricing, or supervise installation, all of which can be quite time consuming.

Sell your ramp with The Yard Ramp Guy: We handle everything — the quote preparation including obtaining freight quotes, off-loading considerations and follow-ups with the prospects.

We will split the final sale price: 70% for you, 30% for The Yard Ramp Guy. (That’s not a typo.)

The Yard Ramp Guy Difference

Listening and Adapting

We’ve listened closely to our buying and renting customers of quality yard ramps, used yard ramp sellers, vendors and even our friendly competitors. This is what we’ve learned:

  • We win on price versus other dealers and versus factory-direct.
  • We don’t just say we rent yard ramps; we really do.
  • We pay used yard ramp sellers more than the competition does.
  • We earn your trust, and then we earn your business.

How do we win on pricing?
How? Purchasing Power! The top two manufacturers of yard ramps rank The Yard Ramp Guy as their #1 dealer for the category. We pass our cost savings on to our customers.

How do we rent when others only say they rent?
The Yard Ramp Guy has mastered the business of yard ramp rentals. With yard ramps located throughout the United States, most of our inventory sits within 250 miles of 90% of the population. This results in considerably reduced delivery and return freight costs.

How (and WHY!) do we pay top dollar to sellers of used yard ramps?

We understand and accept what’s required to assure a win for the seller of used dock ramps, a win for the buyer and a win for The Yard Ramp Guy.

from a Satisfied New Yard Ramp Buyer

Mike L. of Rice, TX | Building Materials

Our thanks to The Yard Ramp Guy for making 4 ramps for us and delivering to 4 different locations in 4 different states. The process was seamless from start to finish.

There was great communication along the way, so we knew when our ramp would be scheduled, manufactured, and delivered. The Yard Ramp Guy also sent us a video on the proper and safe way to unload our ramps. This was very helpful for our managers to know what was coming, how it was loaded, and how to unload it.

Trucks were scheduled and arrived within the window we were told. The ramps are fantastic, work well, and the manufacturing looks amazing.

Thank you, Yard Ramp Guy, for a nice process and product.

Loading & Unloading Applications

Stationary or mobile, dock-to-ground, ground-to-truck

A Variety of Yard Ramps with Features to Cover Every Situation

We serve an impressive variety of businesses that find optimal uses for our yard ramps, including:

  • Basic ground-to-dock stationary ramps
  • Mainstream ground-to-truck mobile yard ramps
  • Multi-bay portable docks
  • Ramp system stairs and hand rails

A number of factors go into deciding the specific type of yard ramp you need in order to streamline productivity. What are the average pallet shipment weights? What size forklifts or pallet jacks do you use for loading and unloading? Will you move the ramp to different loading dock positions around the warehouse during the course of its use, requiring easy yard ramp mobility?

Contact The Yard Ramp Guy TeamWe’ll discuss your specific requirements and your options, including: the advantages of new vs. used yard ramps for sale, the benefits of buying and renting a used portable loading dock, and how you can easily convert your portable loading ramp rental into a purchase.
