Motorcycle and Folding Loading Ramps

How do I identify what loading ramp I require? 

First you will need to check your load height, this is the vertical height from the ground to where the ramp will rest. This height identifies the required ramp length, all of our ramps state the maximum load height on the listing.

You also need to consider what you are loading and the maximum weight you are loading.

Which length ramp should I buy? 

You need to check your load height (the vertical height from the ground to where the ramp will rest) as this affects the length of ramp required. For loading motorbikes a maximum gradient of 30% is recommended. All of our products note the maximum load height for the ramp in question. You also need to consider the maximum weight you wish to loa

How do the ramps connect to the vehicle?

The ramps use a rest on connection which is either red prongs or a solid lip (depending on model) which rests onto the surface you are loading onto. Straps are provided with our folding motorbike ramps which can be used to secure the ramps in place during loading. The motorbike ramps offer an angled foot to ensure they sit securely on the ground during loading. The rest on connection is suitable for flat bed vehicles such as transit vans and trailers, they can also be used to overcome steps.  

Are they lightweight?

Yes, all our folding ramps are lightweight and produced from aluminium, the weight of a single ramp is around 7.5kg - 9.5kg depending on your chosen ramp.

Can I buy a single ramp?

Yes, we offer single motorbike ramps, pairs and kits depending on your requirements. 

How grippy is the surface?

As grippy as we can make it without causing damage to tyres or excessive wear to the surface. We have a variety of surfaces available, including a mesh surface and cut-out grip system to allow you to choose a suitable surface for your requirements. If you plan to use in very wet or muddy conditions further grip might need to be added such as griptape or rubber covering. 

How wide are the motorcycle ramps? 

We have various widths available from 230mm - 440mm. If you wish to walk or ride your motorbike into your vehicle we do also provide a 3-piece motorbike ramp kit which is 1m wide in total. 

Why are the ramps curved?

The ramps are curved to improve ground clearance. 

What other items can be loaded on these ramps?

Our motorcycle ramps are regularly used as a pair to load quad bikes, ride on lawnmowers, garden machinery and ATVS. Please note these ramps are only designed for domestic use, for professional use please view our professional range.  

I have a professional gardening and landscaping business, are the folding loading ramps suitable?

No, the folding loading ramps are only designed for domestic use. If you are loading garden machinery for professional use please view our professional loading ramps

Can the folding motorbike ramps be used to overcome steps and kerbs? 

We would not recommend using our folding motorbike ramps for overcoming small heights such as as kerb as the foot of the ramp is angled for higher heights. This means the ramp will not rest securely on the ground during loading. For overcoming a step or kerb we would instead recommend viewing our kerb ramps. For higher heights, such as a set of stairs or steps which are circa 60cm high, the folding ramps can be used to overcome steps. 

What are the benefits of motorcycle ramps with support legs?

Our motorcycle ramps with support legs offer a higher capacity than those without legs

Which motorbike ramp offers the highest capacity?

Our most heavy duty motorbike ramps are the single wide loading ramp and motorbike ramp with support legs which offer a 680kg capacity.

What is the benefit of the motorcycle ramp kits? 

The motorbike ramp kit allows you to sit on your bike during loading and walk or ride the bike into your vehicle. The kit includes three ramps. 

Do you offer fixed van ramps for motorbikes? 

Yes we offer a range of fixed folding van ramps which can be used for loading motorbikes into vans. 

Can the folding motorbike ramps be used to load flight cases? 

No, these ramps are not suitable for loading flightcases or similar. The ramps cannot be used for loading items with a wheel width of 100mm or less. For loading flightcases, trolleys and similar we instead recommend viewing our van ramps

How do you push a motorcycle up a ramp? 

To load a motorbike into the van using a single ramp you walk along side the ramp, at ground level, whilst pushing the bike up the ramp. Alternatively you can purchase a motorcycle ramp kit which allows you to sit on the motorbike during loading with the motorbike on the central ramp and your feet on the outer ramps.
