good ramps. could be more sturdier
Our ramps arrived today and I just can't believe how absolutely perfect they are for our needs! Due to several recent strokes, my wife now needs to rely on a wheelchair and it's something that we have never had to deal with before. To enter the front of our house, you must go up steps that are about 25 inches high. A ramp for those steps would need to be about 12 feet long and would cost $500.00 or more. In our garage, we have two steps to get into a hallway by our laundry room and two more steps at the end of the short hallway to get into the family room. Both sets of steps are each about 14 inches high. It is quick and easy to set the ramps for the first set, go up the steps, move the lightweight ramps to the next set of steps and go up those and be in the house! The ramps then slide down from 7 feet long to 5 feet long and can be stored almost anywhere, until needed again. For a cost of $149.00 and free shipping, it's one of better purchases I've ever made!
Haven't had a chance to use them much yet, but pleased so far.
Needed some wheel chair ramps on an occasional basis so decided to purchase the 10' pair. Have not used them yet but I put them on my porch to make sure they fit and they seem to be perfect. Very good construction and easy to handle. Expect to use them in a couple of days when a family member visits that uses a wheel chair. I can foresee using them for a ramp for a moving dolly when I move. Delivered as promised and the price was very reasonable compared to other web sites I visited.
Overall, I am pleased especially for the price.
My 89 year old father fell and broke an ankle. We made the decision to bring him home to my house during the non weight bearing stage of recovery. In a pinch my boys cobbled together a ramp for the two steps up to the front porch. But that was NOT going to work for the long term. I did some research into renting or buying a ramp that would be more suitable and happily stumbled across discount ramps. Very happy that I did. I now have two portable tracks that will be able to travel with us to the family reunion and will store them easily when they are no longer needed. They also don't take up the whole width of the steps. I spent much less money than even the rental option offered me and I got a much more versatile product. Thank you for making his entry/exit so much easier and safer for all of us.
Just what I needed. I am over ninety and use a scooter very often and my wife and I would dismantle the scooter to load the van.
Today the 7ft ramps arrived and I drove the scooter up and loaded myself!!! Wow! Wife will live much longer now..
The ramps are very easy to use we use them for our mini van to transport my brother in law. The shipping was very fast! Many husband was getting to the point of not being able to lift him anymore this made it possible to get him out of the nursing home.
I am very happy with the ramps. They are exactly as I exspected and work perfectly. I could not beleive the speed of shipping I received them the next day.
These are made much better than I expected for the price.
I purchased this special lightweight ramp system because it extends to 10 feet and is because of the weight. I use a two-stage ramp system to have access to our 30-foot travel trailer. Safety is the key in setting up a ramp as you do not want it to be too steep. Being the person confined to a wheelchair has made my ability to lift the heavy ramps very difficult so unfortunately this leaves the job to my wife. The old ramps are very heavy and difficult to handle because of the length and the weight.
These new lightweight trac ramps are excellent because I am able lift them with ease and place each trac into position on my own. This makes my wife happy and also makes me feel a little more independent. In the past the old ramps were eight feet in length and 30 inches wide and now with the new ramp system I have an extra two feet in length which decreases the grade to a more acceptable slope. We are looking forward to our summer camping and I know my wife is happy, as she will not have to wrestle with the heavy ramps again this year.
overall I'm very pleased with these for my wife. The only compalint I have is that I wish a bit more overlap when extended. Has a slight bow in it fully extended and nearing the weight limit. Otherwise a very good product below 400 pounds
This ramp worked great for a relative of mine who needed to get up three steps in a manual wheelchair. Being able to change the llength and the width of the tracks makes this ramp very adaptable.
These ramps were the perfect fit and perfect price because my father broke his hip and transportation up two steps in a narrow hallway in my house was the best options. Having two pieces makes it light weight and easy to remove when not using. Even though a longer ramp is recommended for two steps, the 5ft ramp still works for my 73 year old mother to push my father up the ramps. Also, the price of the ramp is one of the best on the internet. Ramps came quickly and customer service responded that day with a small question I had.
Better than We expected. Expands so easy. Sets up great. The cost is really a steal. I called tech support and they took the time to check out accessibility of my scooter. Thank you all very much
Perfect for wheelchair access, yet ready to take care of many other jobs. We bought these to have on hand for a visiting aunt, but wanted something that would work for other moves too. Because they are separate ramps they can be set up for dolly use as well. We just bought a hobby farm and expect them to get a lot of use around here.
It's been difficult to get my 90 year old mother to come and visit due to her confinement to a wheel chair and the pain associated with lifting her over steps leading to my home, but since getting this wonderful product it's been a breeze and now my mother visits a lot more often. This product is easy to use, extend, very sturdy and made a huge difference in transporting my mother. Thank you!!
Liked very much anyone can use them. We have 4 steps and they work great. The nice part when not in use we can move them out of the way and we have a van so we can take them anywhere. The price was also great. I even came back and bought the threshold ramp that was perfect for a strange door way we had. It is much better than wood. I will be getting more in the future as I keep changing the house to make it much easier for my wife to get around. Thanks for the great products, very pleased Bill.
We bought these ramps to load my 95 year old father's power scooter in to our mini-van. They were easy to lift and set up. We also will use them for getting him into our house since the ramps are telescoping.
I realize that these ramps are intended for, and marketed for use with wheel chairs, however, I was searching for a set of ramps to wheel my electric generator out of storage, when needed, from my patio to a concrete deck under the back porch stairs. The rise was 21" high and the generator weighs 220 lbs. A variety of ramps intended for lawn & garden, ATV loading, etc. were too expensive, too short, too long or had an open-platform design, more so like a ladder. I ordered over the phone. The CSR was very courteous, congenial and helpful. Tried them out today. Worked great. Built well. Liked the grit surface for traction and the side rails for safety. Takes up little room to store, because they collapse. Comfortable knowing that I have these in the event that my wife or I become infirmed, or a relative or friend is in need.
We got the TWR-V2-3-5 two-piece telescoping ramp set, as we transport a small electric scooter in the back of our Outback wagon. We needed the telescoping feature so it would fit in the wagon. The telescoping feature means that the slide channels project above the ramp surface. Works great for our electric wheelchair on the porch stairs, but the small ground clearance of the scooter hangs up on the slide channels. So it does not work for the scooter.
Construction is good.
I bought this set of ramps to help transition my 16 yr old granddaughter in her wheelchair from ground to my van. Emma is total care and is unable to assist so I needed ramps ;which would be adaptable to different terrains and heights. These are perfect and the weight is not too much for me to handle(I am 75 yrs old. )The only issue I have is that the buttons to telescope the ramps are too far apart for me to do alone. I am going to improvise with some type of shim to keep one pushed in while I push in the other. I showed the ramps to the company who installed the tiedowns and the owners were impressed with the quality, weight and cost. Since the company they used to do business with for their ramps has folded, you just may be hearing from them.
We bought these ramps for my wheelchair bound husband. Will be so much easier now visiting family and friends. Instead of pulling him up steps we will keep ramps in our car and use them whenever necessary.
We need to get my husband up 2 steps into daughter's home. Ramps are a bit hard for one person to expand because 2 buttons need to be depressed at one time, while pulling ramp to expand. Quality and strength of ramps are good.
The ramp is excellent, perfect for the five steps I have to go down to get in the car easy to handle and carry
Thank you, Discount Ramps you have helped us be more independent. With the help of the telescoping ramp I can now load my husband's wheelchair into the van alone. I bought the longer one because now when we visit friends with steps we will be ready! Your shipping was very fast and your prices great! Thank you again!
These ramps look like they will be a perfect fit for our family. They provide flexibility to use for house and van. Easy to carry from one location to another.
My daughter uses her wheelchair part time. It is too heavy for her to lift it into her van so I bought the ramp for her to roll it into her van. It works as expected.
I have a pair of 10 foot Telescoping Ramps. The price of the WHEELCHAIR RAMPS for the value you are receiving is very PRICE WORTHY. The LENGTH CALCULATOR on the website was right on the money as far as the length of the Wheelchair Ramp had to be. They are definitely worth their money and are very sturdy. I have no fear that they will buckle under me. I received the WHEELCHAIR RAMPS in one day.
I was in Rehab for 7 weeks because my left knee went out on me for the fourth time. To get back into my apartment, an Apartment Assessment had to be completed by an Occupational and Physical Therapist. I have two ways to get in, either through the main apartment entrance or my patio door. The first time I went back into my apartment, we used the front door which has two steps, one to a platform and the second through the main door into the hallway of the stairwell. When I go in and out of my apartment now, I use the Patio Door.
I am TOTALLY SATISFIED with the pair of 10 foot Aluminum Telescoping Wheelchair Track Ramps. I highly recommend the ramps and also the Company – DISCOUNT RAMPS.COM. The Sales Representative was very friendly and informative. I got all the information from her that I needed.

These ramps are wonderful. We have parents who are now using wheelchairs and walkers. These ramps have made it possible for them to enter our house. They are easy to store and easy to use. Thank you.
The ramp is adjustable according to your length and width requirements making it convenient to use. I bought this for my brother-in-law who is wheeled-bound but I can see it will also be of used to me if I got heavy loads that can be rolled in to the house.
These ramps exceed anything else on the market for the price !
I now can get into houses I couldn't before and
My wife loves their weight !! Buy these you can't go wrong !!
Thanks for a great product at a great price !!!
I use them to get my wife up 3 steps into the house. The weight of her and the wheelchair is about 200 lbs. They sage quite a bit at this weight but do spring back to level. My wife's condition is temporary, but I will keep the ramps and use them for other jobs. They work great if I use a dolly to put a heavy load into my truck. I am 72 and the fact they only weight 20 lbs each makes them easy to set up.
I bought these in late Fall to enable me to take my HEAVY new charcoal grill down the steps of an enclosed porch. Now I can use my grill anytime I want instead of asking one of my male neighbors to take it outside for me. Rolling the grill up the steps is just as easy as rolling it down and into the yard.
I wondered how I would ever be able to use my grill after buying it and toyed with buying lumber and making a makeshift temporary ramp. But where to store those long boards after putting them away?? These telescoping ramps are the perfect answer! Highly recommend them.
We got these ramps for my husband so we could visit his parents, our sons and see our grandchildren. And also our friends, want us to come for a visit. We carry them around in our SUV all the time , so we have them whenever we go.
We were planning our Thanksgiving dinner but my mom is no longer able to climb steps. I was looking for something reasonably priced, convenient to use, adjustable and of good quality. I got of of that and more. These ramps are great, the ordering process was easy and the delivery was very quick. I was so pleased I may also order some ramps for my ATV. great product and company.
I bought the 10' ramp. My sons were able to get my elderly mother up the 18" easily and safely. No problems, no hassles. One word of advice -- check your wheelchair, and ensure that the front and back wheels are on the same line, or within a few inches of the same line. If they are too far off, this type of ramp will not work.
The portable ramp arrived and we were very pleased. Light weight. Well designed. Strong and easy to manipulate.
I bought these ramps as I am mostly confined to a wheelchair.So these ramps have sort of given me my life back.Company went way beyond and above to make sure I received a quality product at a very low cost,Also was amazed how quickly they were delivered to my front door.Thumbs up to you Discount Ramps.Will let everyone I know and meet about your company.I am one happy camper. Thank You..James D, allen
