Mom is HAPPY with NEW Stair Lift! *Customer Review

                                                                                                                                                                                          "I contacted Ramp Now through Angie's List and very promptly got a call back from Carlos the General Manager. He was great from the start. Very friendly and willing to help.

A couple of days later, Troy (one of the technicians) came out to provide an estimate. Ramp Now doesn't have sales people. The actual people who install the equipment come out to do the evaluation. I think this is a very good idea as they are the technical experts and know what is best from an equipment and installation standpoint. 

Troy was very polite and nice. He gave us a quote for a stair chair that would fit our needs. We discussed the options of renting vs. buying. I called Troy back several times that afternoon to clarify some of our questions. He was very nice and patient. 

We decided to buy the unit. Even before I could call Carlos to let him know, he called me. That was on a Monday. That Wednesday, another installer - Jorge was out to put the unit in. Jorge was also very nice and efficient. He was extremely polite to my mom and was very careful to show her how to use the chair. He was very clean and efficient in his work. 

Carlos called me the next day to check on us.

So in conclusion, I can say that working with Ramp Now was a great experience and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I would gladly use them again. They have my trust.
If you are looking for an honest and quality organization for any need having to do with helping people stay mobile, they are your company."

Finally out of the house!

Before / After: We received a call from Mr. Young in Matteson, IL who was in need of a ramp to get in and out of his home.

Within a few days of going out to assess the situation, we were able to get a ramp installed that was safe, durable, affordable, and something that worked well with his budget.

This particular ramp was installed by Troy Hepner!

Now, Mr. Young can come and go as he pleases which opens up the door to be able to make his appointments, run errands, and get some fresh air without any hassle!

RampNOW Teams up with School of ROCK!!!

"The more we started to discuss options for accessibility, the more I realized that I wanted to help in a big way" 

- Carlos Lopez RampNOW

I remember getting the call from Marissa at School of Rock in Glen Ellyn, IL. 

She mentioned that there was one kid in particular (a guitar player) who was in a wheelchair and needed access to the stage for the big event! Being a music fan and a guitar player myself, I was excited to hear more and find out different ways that we could help. 

At first we knocked around the idea of renting a modular ramp. A Modular ramp is one that we come out and construct on site. That idea was short lived because in reality they only needed the ramp for one day. So, we discussed the idea of renting or purchasing a portable ramp for one day, and it appeared that was the best option. However, the more we started to discuss options for accessibility, the more I realized that I wanted to help in a big way

It hit me... like a ton of bricks. Why not just donate the portable ramp to School of Rock?!?! So, that's what we did. Marissa of course was elated at the notion and gladly accepted :) 

Now, anytime they have a musician that requires accessibility for the BIG SHOW, they can pull out the portable ramp and Rock out in the Limelight without any hindrances whatsoever!  

Moral of the story: Helping others is something that will always help you.

Spread the love :)

Lisa Z. from Villa Park, IL

"The chair lift is AWESOME! It is so much safer for both my mom and myself.  She really struggled on stairs and now she just presses a button.

I originally started looking into ramps but we just didn't have the room and then Troy suggested the stair lift.  I didn't even know they could be installed outside!

I called and looked into quite a few different places....you were by far the most reasonable...another company made no mention of a stair lift...they were going to pour concrete, cut the deck and put in a lift that was
$5K more than the lift we had put in.

There were a couple of issues during the installation but Carlos called me and everything was taken care of perfectly.  The installers were professional and Ryan was so thorough in explaining everything.  You can tell he really loves working for your company.

I will recommend your company to everyone that would need your services.  I am pleased beyond words.

Thanks so much"

Happy in Chicago!

"Thank you Carlos and everyone one at RampNow!  I had two companies come out for an estimate and what I liked about the person you guys sent out was that he was the actual installer and not a sales person.  He knew exactly what was going to be done.  He had answers to my questions without having to check with someone else and get back to me.  We are very happy with the end result and the family is more at ease knowing that my mother can easily get up and down the stairs!"
