Container Loading Ramps For Sale

Containers Direct sell a range of container ramps, designed to make loading and unloading safer, quicker and easier. The interior floor of shipping and storage containers is approximately 7 inches from the ground, which can make lifting large or heavy objects into the container difficult. Using a container loading ramp reduces health and safety risks associated with heavy lifting and if moving liquids, the risks of spillage during movement.

Our container ramps provide the perfect solution - they are designed to fit between the corner posts of the container doors to provide ramped access for pallets and forklifts, making light work of loading your container. Our ramps are fabricated in our own workshops, to high standards and we offer three standard designs and sizes for different requirements. Bespoke sizes and designs are also available upon request.

We can make ramps to any required size/weight tolerance - please enquire.

*Please note; we design our ramps to fit to the door opening of the container between the corner posts, meaning the width is slightly less than 4ft/8ft

Recommended Modification

Our standard container loading ramps are not designed to be left in situ, but instead moved up against the container as and when required. Particularly for our 8ft container ramps, we would advise that you also choose to have the doors of your container adapted so the ramp can be left in situ; at over 100kgs, they're not the lightest! To achieve this, we remove the bottom 'cam keepers' of the container locking arms so the ramp can be left in place permanently.

Car ramps

Storing cars and other vehicles in containers is commonplace, but a container ramp is essential for entry. We have designed a car ramp especially for this purpose - with two pieces at 6ft long x 1ft wide each, they can be spaced apart to fit any width of any chassis. These can also be used for quad bike storage.

CarTainer Loading Ramps

For our CarTainer product, we have designed a heavy duty (5 tonne tolerance), low level ramp that can be left in situ, even when opening and closing the container doors.

For containers suitable for car storage, see our article Containers for Car Storage.

Other container ramps

We make any size ramp to order - please enquire for details. We can also make hinged, fold up ramps, which are particularly suitable for disabled access in a range of container conversions, for example offices, catering and pop-up shops.

All our container ramps come in standard colours of green, blue or black, but can be repainted to any other colour for a small charge.
