Spring is in the air, which means the time is just right to start thinking about portable handicap ramps. Chances are, if you are of limited mobility, you have a permanent fixed solution at home of some sort. Portable handicap ramps allow you to take that freedom of mobility you enjoy at home with you wherever you go.
When the weather is beautiful there’s no reason why you should be confined to your home. If you want to go out, but are not sure the place you want to go is going to be accessible, a portable ramp helps take the guesswork out of that by knowing wherever you have to go will be equipped for your needs.
Portable handicap ramps are lightweight and can even be folded up in some cases for easy storage and transportation. They give you the freedom you deserve wherever you need it. Important to note though is that portable ramps are not intended to be a permanent solution. Meaning they should not be used as both your primary ramp at home, and as a ramp you take with you on the go. It’s not built to withstand that amount of use, but it is built for the long haul to be sure, with the ability to support an over 800 pound weight capacity.
