Our, er, Diversified Focus
To review: we focus exclusively on the business of buying, renting, and selling new and used yard ramps.
As with so many things related to vision, what we focus on does not exclude other elements that are hiding in plain sight, at the edges.
Here are a couple of prominent examples:
We Literally Do The Heavy Lifting
The Yard Ramp Guy respects your time. We know that you’ve searched our site and connected with our sales team toward optimizing and streamlining your operations. Buying or renting a mobile yard ramp or stationary dock ramp is one thing. Getting it shipped and set up is another.
Early on, we clearly saw our customers’ needs for turnkey services. And so we’ve established a network of professionals, located throughout the country, who collectively are able to deliver, off-load, weld, bolt, and position your purchase or rental.
About half of our customers take advantage of these value-added services, which include:
- installing anchors at docks;
- spot welding; and
- finding and managing equipment such as cranes needed to offload a ramp from a flatbed.
In our professional experience, our competition hasn’t expressed much of an interest in providing these options. We didn’t invent the wheel with our turnkey services; we just greased the wheel a bit, and the results continue to show a smooth, expedited, and safe way to put your ramp into use.
We offer partner options for the financing of your equipment. All have simple applications and can quickly determine your financing request.
To Finance: Not So Puzzling
Our customers choose financing for a couple of prominent reasons:
- If cash on hand demonstrates a challenge for your operations, financing is an excellent way to minimize the pain points.
- Cash on hand isn’t as central as the simple and understandable desire to keep the company ledger more robust.
Advantages to financing include:
- You gain immediate use of a yard ramp from our quality inventory, meeting your specifications and requirements.
- Greater flexibility and fewer restrictions than typical bank loans.
- With a payment plan, your ledger can better absorb the cost of a yard ramp over time.
Not only does financing allow you to keep more of your cash in house for working capital, it generally also comes with a terrific tax advantage. The Section 179 deduction provides a way, in most situations, for you to deduct the full cost of a yard ramp as a business expense.
We cover the peripheral things, so that you can stay focused.
