So you realized the jostling you receive every time you enter and exit your driveway was way too much. You found Bridjit Curb Ramps through your neighbors or google, and, finally, the box with your curb ramps has arrived!
Watch this short video (2:45) that illustrates how exactly to install your Bridjit Curb Ramp. It’s pretty easy!
Chel was nice enough to leave the follow testimonial on our Facebook page:
I LOVE my ramps!! It has made my family’s life easier too! My Optima & my son’s Cobalt do not scrape the driveway, and my other son’s vintage caddy is able to get into the driveway. The Caddy’s first attempt into the driveway caused damaged to the front end. Now he is able to pull the car into the driveway with ease.
I had spine surgery six months ago and if it hadn’t been for my ramps I would have had a hefty walk (with a walker ) up the curb and driveway to the house from the hospital. (And I honestly feel my recovery time was minimized because I didn’t have the impact on my spine of the jolt getting in and out of the driveway).
Delivery truck drivers like them too – they can pull into my driveway to drop off packages without worrying about damaging their tires. When we have truck loads of landscaping materials to be delivered we move the ramps to another curb location to access the back yard and the trucks dump our material right on our property.
Our neighbors – they have to wheel barrel loads of material from the cul-de-sac where their deliveries sit because of a previous attempt resulting in a dump truck blowing a tire trying to enter their driveway.
These are a no brainer, I don’t know why I don’t see more people with them!
When people call us and tell us about just what their driveways do to their cars, we are always astounded. A quick search on YouTube clearly shows that this problem happens everywhere with all kinds of cars. First watch this Ferrari that goes up on 3 wheels just to back out! Crazy!
At Bridjit Curb Ramps we are very happy to say that we are now selling out to 46 states across the United States! This proves that a major dillemma is happening across the US – We’ve now estimated that there are 9 million rolled curb driveways across the United States and that number is growing!
A good portion of the North American housing developments built after 1980 utilized a less expensive rolled curb and gutter which in turn provides what was thought to be an acceptable driveway entry, without having to plan ahead for the driveway location. These rolled curbs were built to save the developers money and in concept was not a bad idea, just not a good design that would accommodate today’s lower slung cars and low profile tires.
It is estimated that over 9 million rolled curb driveway entries exist in the U.S. and Canada, and in most all cases can cause expensive vehicle damage and even physical injury to the occupants. In addition, wheels can be bent and steering component damaged, directly impacting wheel alignment, which in turn causes excess tire wear and increased fuel consumption. These rolled curbs seem like a great idea, but to who? Certainly not us.
Bridjit’s curb ramp was invented by John Curry after he purchased a home with a rolled curb driveway. “My neighbors and I experienced the daily annoyance of being jostled each time I entered or exited my driveway,” said Curry, the president and owner of Bridjit Curb Ramps Inc. “Instead of paying for an expensive modification to my driveway entry, ($2500 to $6000), my concept was to develop a low-impact, low cost driveway solution that would provide homeowners with a lower impact entry and exiting experience.”
Made in the USA from recycled tires, Bridjit Curb Ramps are a high-quality “green” solution designed to help homeowners reduce the jolting and jarring that occurs when entering a driveway with a rolled curb entry and to eliminate underside vehicle damage. It is ideal for any type of vehicle, and particularly for enthusiasts with luxury, sports and classic cars, trailers, RV’s, converted vans, motorcycles, golf carts or other vehicles with a low underside clearance or an extended overhang. These affordable ramps are simple to install and come in four foot modular sections that allow segmenting around cul-de-sacs,fit any width driveway, and are bolted together, not to the concrete.
We are extremely excited to announce that we are now celebrating 4 years in business! A lot has happened! We are now members of The Better Business Bureau, and SEMA (Specialty Equipment Marketing Association) which is one of the largest automobile after market organizations in the world.
We are now selling out to 46 states, 3 Canadian Provinces, and Puerto Rico.
We are coming out with a new product that is a variation on our existing design, which will be a pair of 2ft long ramps that can be used for temporary ramps and stored in the truck or the car if need be. This variation should be on the market within 30 days.
We have a referral program that has been initiated for past customers of www.bridjit.com that allows them to share their results with neighbors and be compensated with a $25 gift card for every set of ramps purchased by their friends or neighbors. They can sign up for the referral program at www.bridjit.com/referral.
We’d like to take this time to thank EVERYONE for their love and support, it’s our loyal customers that keep us in this business and we thank you! Cheers to 4 more years!
Old, used tires are a large problem in our landfills because of their large quantities and they take up so much valuable space. There are approximately 270 million old tires added to the US land fill each year. Tire dumps are also know to harbor vermin and mosquitoes, creating unsafe health conditions. Due to heavy metals and a series of other pollutants, dumped tires can leech into groundwater, again affecting the help of our communities.
At Bridjit, we are very happy to say we have now recycled 38,000 tires in the production of our curb ramps. We decided to use old rubber tires over other available recycled products because of their never-ending supply, their durability, and the great problems they create in our communities – we wanted to get them out of the landfills and put them to good use!
We use Crumb rubber, old tires processed to remove steel and fluff, to create a granular material that provides flexibility for manufacturing and the durability we all know from using tires on our cars. It’s really a great product. The crump rubber provides the ability to adjust the density for durability and weight needed to keep our ramps in place without having to bolt them down.
We’re excited to be able to create a great product while still being great stewards for our environment.

Sandy was tired of her and her friends cars scraping in her neighborhood’s driveways. Then, after finding Bridjit Curb Ramps on the internet, she bought a Bridjit 3 piece curb ramp and all her problems were solved! No more damage to her car, no more embarrassing apologies to friends stopping by, no more anxiety from getting jarred around by her large rolled curb.

We just received this email from Mike, a recently new customer of Bridjit Curb Ramps.
Thanks for your help a few days ago when I came by and purchased 5 segments for my home.
Setting up was super easy, and took little time at all. Think I was done with the whole operation in less than 30 minutes.
Now the neighbors are admiring your great products. One of them stated that he has been into the dealer 3 times to repair his chin spoiler, at $300 per visit, just for painting. He’s scratching his head now, as he could have avoided all that by having your curbs.
So, hope you will be seeing a few more sales from my neighborhood.
