No capability to off-load? No problem!

What To Do When You Move To A New Location And Have No Capability To Off-Load


R.E. Michel contracted All About Doors as part of the renovation of a Nashville location prior to a branch relocation. Contracted to upgrade and install new overhead doors; All About Doors needed to be able to off-load materials and equipment at the site. Other contractors faced a similar problem needing a method to off-load at a site where there was no existing loading dock. All About Doors contacted Nation Ramps to find a solution that could be installed and operational within a few days.

The solution was a PLD22K-34×102-50A located in Ridgeway, South Carolina that had just been returned from rental. The R.E. Michel renovation required a ramp with enough load carrying capacity and width to handle off-loading of equipment, materials and even vehicles. They also needed a ramp capable to accommodate the location move. Once the renovation was complete they needed the ability to efficiently move in their inventory. With no loading dock at the site, Nation Ramps simplified everything with ability to handle multiple trailer loads per day. With forklift access they could quickly unload the palatalized inventory, equipment and furniture. Making a complicated, time consuming move efficient and fast.

Our Solution: 

Ramp Length 26.5 Feet
Platform Length 7.5 Feet
Ramp Width 102 Inches
Ramp Usable Width 97 Inches
Ramp Capacity 22,000LBS (GVW)
Ramp Height – Adjustable 41″ to 60″
12” Safety Rub Rails

Once the lease was in place they needed a ramp on site as soon as possible. The PLD22K was quickly shipped and onsite within a few days. With no requirement for a permit the ramps was setup and being utilized as soon as it was on the ground in Nashville. As many projects do, the renovation went longer than planned and they needed the ramp for more things than expected. With the large inventory of ramps and platforms Nation Ramps was able to extend the rental for as long as they needed. The flexibility of our ramps meant that at the end of the rental it was difficult to say goodbye.
