Adding Quality Van Ramps to Your Facility

Van loading ramps are the preferred ramp system of delivery drivers and professional movers that load and unload with hand trucks, dollies, and two-wheeled carts. Copperloy’s used moving ramps are especially notable for their low maintenance requirements. Specifically, our distinct design minimizes both cleaning and maintenance times while making storage and installation easy.

Our used moving truck ramps also feature premier safety additions. For example, curbs prevent runoff for dollies and carts to move safely and easily. High-quality aluminum construction also ensures leading durability and lightweight installations for easy transportation and storage.

Copperloy has been producing durable loading dock equipment and aluminum van ramps for more than 60 years, and you can trust our experience and expertise.

Yard Ramp Features

Forklift entering semi trailer on Copperloy yard ramp and using 8-foot level off


The Copperloy mobile yard ramp has an 8-foot level off feature. This is necessary for forklifts to have easy access onto trucks, loading docks, and platforms. It allows the fork truck to safely enter the trailer at a level approach and without having to stop. This feature makes for a very stable yard ramp and is especially useful on mobile ramps.

Copperloy yard ramp 15-inch lip design


The 15-inch lip is designed to firmly rest on the truck carrier body, dock floor or platform. Our mobile ramps come equipped with eight-foot-long safety chains. Chains join the ramp to keep it from pulling away.

Yard ramp external hydraulic hand pump


The single-acting hydraulic hand pump design requires half the effort needed to raise ramp compared to other mobile ramps. The pump is relocated so that it is protected away from dirt, debris, damage and makes maintenance easier to perform. The handle is stored out of the way when not in use.

Copperloy portable yard ramp side plates


Smooth side plates and safety curbs are standard. They are constructed of high strength steel and enclose all working components, while also protecting them from possible damage from other equipment.

Yard ramp low end plate


We designed an end plate that is shorter than the wheelbase of most forklift trucks. This way, front-drive wheels can reach high-traction grating, while rear wheels are still on the ground. The plate comes standard with beveling from the underside and helps to provide an easy and smooth ground-level entry. It also eliminates jolts and bumps as the forklifts travel on and off the yard ramp, with or without a load.

Serrated steel deck grating on yard ramp


High-strength steel is standard on all Copperloy yard ramps. Grating bars are constructed for durability in the roughest of applications. The 1-3/4 inch bar depth allows snow, rain, and other debris to fall through. The serrated grating helps to ensure an all-weather, high-traction running surface.

Copperloy yard ramp safety curbs


7-inch high curbs are standard on all Copperloy ramps to help prevent accidental runoff with a patented box frame.

Yard ramp with solid pneumatic tires


The solid/pneumatic tires are standard on all Copperloy mobile yard ramps and are ideal for all applications. The tires do not require air to fill, are maintenance-free, and have lubricated-for-life bearings.

Copperloy yard ramp positioning sleeve


The position sleeve allows the yard ramp to maneuver 180 degrees which reduces loading/unloading time and increases productivity. The fork slides into the positioning sleeve and the ramp can easily be positioned into place. The positioning sleeve is included with all steel mobile yard ramps. The sleeve is not intended for long-distance towing.

Yard ramp tow bar


A tow bar is an option on both steel and aluminum mobile yard ramps that attaches to the lower end of the loading ramp. It allows the ramp to be towed a short distance (within your facility). The max towing speed is 5-mph and is not intended for over-the-road towing.

Choosing the Right Van Ramps for Your Loading Dock

What to choose from our selection of portable yard ramps depends on how you will be using them. Looking for a permanent loading area or do you require a portable loading ramp? What is the maximum weight that your lift trucks will be transporting? (Don’t forget to include the weight of the lift truck.)

Do you require dock-to-ground access or ground-level access to railcars and trucks? Copperloy has been manufacturing yard ramps for over 60 years and our staff is available to consult with you on the best solution for your loading application.

Dock crews prefer Copperloy because our yard ramps are faster and easier to position than any other ramp on the market and have been proven to outperform other manufacturers including Bluff Manufacturing, Vestil, Discount Ramps, and Handiramp. If you’re not sure of your future needs, consider a rental yard ramp or a used yard ramp. All Copperloy used ramps are factory certified and guaranteed.
