Copperloy specializes in loading dock equipment that makes loading and unloading materials easier, faster, and safer. While facilities benefit from our edge of dock levels and yard ramps, other businesses need our smaller and more specialized equipment like a cargo van ramp. A Copperloy cargo van ramp creates a safe transition between a cargo van and the ground, ensuring the worker can transport heavy or fragile materials. Catering services benefit from durable but lightweight cargo van ramps while transporting heavy trays of food or decorative desserts.


Moving into a new house or apartment is exciting, but it can also be stressful. After packing up all of your belongings, how are you supposed to safely move them? A moving truck ramp can be connected to a moving van you use to move your personal belongings. This way, there is now a safe and accessible ramp to load and unload your boxes on. A moving ramp will increase your efficiency while also keeping you safe.

Some of our unique safety features include:

  • 12” Lip
  • 4 ¾” Overall Curb Height

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.

How do you know if you need van ramps for your business? Much of the analysis before purchasing a van ramp involves the specifications of the applications it needs to perform. Our van ramps are extremely durable and come in a wide variety of heights and widths, so we are certain we have the right solution for you.

Top Applications for Cargo Van Ramps

Copperloy’s loading dock equipment is designed to make loading and unloading processes easier and safer. Customers trust our products and over 60 years of experience to provide the highest quality equipment. While loading dock facilities can benefit from edge of dock levels and dock boards, other applications require smaller but equally important equipment like cargo van ramps. Each cargo van loading ramp creates a safe and efficient ramp for delivery drivers, professional movers, and small service fleets.


Delivery drivers have an already difficult job of delivering hundreds of packages a week, all within a tight deadline. To make things harder, they also have to load and unload heavy packages throughout the day which can slow them down and become dangerous. Without a proper way to unload materials, the drivers are more likely to get behind schedule. A cargo van loading ramp from Copperloy will ensure delivery drivers have the durable cargo van ramp they need to safely unload materials quickly and efficiently.

Working as a delivery driver is actually a risk-filled occupation, even though today’s society tends to take the professionals for granted. Delivery vehicles are prime targets for robberies, deliveries can be ordered for locations that are not in plain view, and deliveries can be scheduled at all hours. On top of all of those risks, delivery workers are also especially susceptible to injuries caused by repeated lifting or by lifting something too heavy. A van ramp can help ease the burden on a delivery professional’s muscles and bones, especially over time.

Anyone that has packed up their apartment or house knows the difficulty of moving heavy boxes. Professional movers are frequently hired when large items or numerous boxes need to be moved out of space while avoiding damage to items and the property. If you’re called to one of these jobs, the only way you can load and unload the items is with a cargo van loading ramp. The heavy duty van ramps are used to make a safe ramp for the workers to transport homeowner’s possessions. Loading ramps for cargo vans will help professional movers transport materials safely, while also ensuring the worker’s safety.

Why use a cargo van versus a moving truck? There are a few arguments in favor of a smaller moving vehicle, especially if you are only moving a few heavy items. When gas prices are high, fueling a cargo van is more economical than trying to fuel a whole truck. Additionally, vans are much easier to maneuver on the road. Even if you decide to use a cargo van for moving, and whether you do the moving yourself or via professional movers, you will want a reliable moving ramp to assist in loading and unloading.


There are countless service fleets across the country that provide home repairs and maintenance, cleaning services, or even food catering. No matter the industry, it’s crucial for the drivers and employees to have safe loading access to and from their cargo vans. Heavy duty van ramps will assist workers as they carry tools or supplies from the service vehicle. Without a cargo van ramp, there’s the possibility of dropping heavy items or taking too long between services. When your business needs to improve safety and productivity out on the job, choose Copperloy van ramps.

How do you know whether your service fleet business should utilize trucks versus vans? There are pros and cons to both. If you are going to need to tote a trailer for lawn equipment, a truck is likely your best option. Similarly, trucks are ideal if you don’t have multi-person crews, if your vehicles often need to trek across tough terrains, or if your business relies on transporting things like heavy panes of fragile glass. If you do have multi-person crews, however, and if your vehicles mostly travel on regular roads and driveways, your business will probably do fine with a cargo van. Even if you feel the loads you carry in your van are not heavy enough to warrant a cargo van ramp, any kind of lifting over a long period of time can be hard on the body. Cargo van ramps from Copperloy will keep your team healthier for longer.
