Wheelchair Ramp


I have a friend who recently purchased a home in Medford, NJ with a wheelchair ramp. He wants the ramp removed. I was wondering if anyone knew of an organization or any related info on having someone remove at no cost and they keep the ramp. Or is that not possible? The ramp is fairly new and in very good condition.

Re: Wheelchair Ramp


What material is the ramp made of? Is it a temporary ramp; nuts and bolts?

Re: Wheelchair Ramp


Made of PT pine. Pretty larger ramp, two levels. He is planning to just have someone rip it out and trash it, but I'd hate to see it go to waste if it could be used elsewhere.

Re: Wheelchair Ramp


Unfortunately there is not much to save there, as no two appliactions are alike. I asked because 90% of my work for the past 8 years has been renovating and building homes for state funded agencies that house people with disabilities, and have to build ramps quite a bit. In some instances where a temporary ramp is needed, we call in a company that has a nut and bolt system steel ramp, and I thought his may have been one of those. There may be someone out there though that may be able to use it, or at least the wood anyway. Good luck.

Re: Wheelchair Ramp


Where I live, we just put a sign out front saying that we are giving something away. Most times, someone stops buy a takes it. This saves money over having to dispose of it.
