New Forklift Ramp Q&A

A Smooth Angling of Your Purchase

YRG: New Forklift Ramps
The Yard Ramp Guy: Quality from the Start

We inspect all of our inventory to assure quality for your rental or purchase. And if it’s in your means, there’s nothing like a new forklift ramp. Unaffected by rust (naturally occurring, and most always nothing to be concerned about), a new one will give you those extra years of workhorse service.

The Yard Ramp Guy’s Online Store lists our new inventory in two main categories: New Mobile Yard Ramps and New Stationary Dock Ramps. And when you conduct your comparison shopping with other manufacturers and sellers, you’ll most often notice a couple of Yard Ramp Guy distinctions. Here, then is some handy Q&A:

How does The Yard Ramp Guy sell new ramps for less than the factory?Manufacturers often sell direct to end-users but honor the 800+ dealers around the country by committing to not going below the standard dealer’s retail price point. As far as pricing goes, we are competing against other dealers or the factory selling at dealer pricing.

We have no bricks and mortar. Our overhead is very limited. Our web presence funnels all the leads we could hope for, so our marketing budget is lean. Rather than pricing along with other dealers and pocketing the additional profits, we pass the overhead savings on to our customers to win their business.

Why does The Yard Ramp Guy feature only three yard ramp manufacturers?
The three manufacturers featured—Bluff Manufacturing of Ft. Worth, Texas; QMH of Rancho Cucamonga, California; and Mid-State Ramps of Denton, North Carolina—each make outstanding quality products and are the leading makers of yard ramps.

There are a few other manufacturers making quality products but not, in our opinion, with the same commitment to the vertical product line. They also sell at price points beyond our business model. We also would have no hesitation to re-sell one of their ramps as used.

What happens when my new forklift ramp arrives?
Not to worry. About half of our customers request some or all of our Turnkey Delivery and Installation Services. Many of our customers don’t have the skills or time to manage aspects of installation such as offloading the ramp from a flatbed, anchoring the ramp to docks, or spot welding.
