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!
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.
After 4 years in business and shipping out to 46 states, Bridjit Curb Ramps has made a decision to utilize FedEx services for most all shipments to our www.bridjit.com customers. Handling of our 50 pound packages on a daily basis is not an easy chore and FedEx has become a proven leader in providing quality on-time services which our customers can count on. We have experienced professional customer services from the FedEx team at their service centers, on the phone, and especially with their hardworking delivery folks. We do appreciate their help in making our company successful.
Bridjit Curb Ramps will be presenting our auto curb ramps at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas November 3 through 6. Held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, you can find us in booth 11359 in the Restyling and Car Care Area.
If you aren’t familiar with SEMA, it is the largest and most well-attended car show in the United States with more than 50,000 attendees expected. This is primarily a vendor-only show, so we are excited to show off our affordable, durable curb ramps. For more info. on the show, please visit SEMA online.
Bridjit is proud to announce the launch of its revamped website. You can still find us online at www.Bridjit.com, but now the site is interactive. For example, on the home page, you can change vehicles to show how cars, trucks and motorcycles drive over curbs with and without Bridjit Curb Ramps. No more guessing what the impact will be. Our new site also features customer testimonials, a “how to install” section and FAQs. Please visit and tell us what you think!
In July 2009, Bridjit Curb Ramps was a featured business in The Business Report, a monthly business newspaper covering the South King County, Washington area. See page 3 for a story by Judy Dunn about our business, “Entrepreneur shares product marketing wisdom.” In the article, Dunn describes how Bridjit came to be as well as some effective marketing techniques we’ve found to be helpful. We hope you’ll check it out- read it online here!
In May, Bridjit made its first appearance at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas. We displayed our curb ramps and explained them to hardware and auto retailers around the country. Our product was so successful that we signed on with five well-known, reputable vendors to sell our product. Among our latest vendors are Griot’s Garage, Auto Sports Catalog, Car Guys Garage, California Car Cover and FrontGate.com. And, of course, you can still buy our popular curb ramps direct by calling the number below.
