The Ramp Process - From Enquiry To Installation

Before making an enquiry:

1.Take a picture of the door and threshold (Standing well back, so we can see any obstructions). 

2. Take a picture standing in the doorway looking out (This shows us the overall area we have to work within). 

3. If there is an internal threshold, take some pictures and make a note of the internal threshold height.


4.With a tape measure, work out the distance from door threshold to the ground level.

What happens next:

1.  Once you have decided to proceed, we may require a deposit.  Provisionally, an estimated installation date will be given, however once we are ready to install the ramp, a final installation date will be agreed. It will generally take a day to complete unless there is extensive work needed.
