    Hi There,

    does anyone please know of a supplier of ramps that are long enough for a flight of stairs (about 14 steps!)??

    We were due to move but it has fallen through and our puppy is coming home in 5 weeks and so we need a stairs solution to get him outside to the garden - he'll be ok to be carried for a short while but he's going to grow fast!

    Many thanks in advance for any solutions offered!

    Libby

    if you are comfy doing it - get a piece of MDF - the thickest you can and long enough and around 12 in wide and glue carpet to it?a couple pieces of battoning on the back to wedge it on the steps for safety

    Thanks for coming back to me!

    Yes I think the build option is going to be the way to go - will have to get the other half to bring out his power tools :)

    I just thought maybe someone might know of a pre-made supplier somewhere.....

    Cheers

    I've only ever seen ramps for cars.....DIY is probably the best way forward.

    If your looking to have one made my best suggestion would be to contact your local mobility centre. But I'm betting thatas it will be fairly bespoke it will be expensive! For the relatively short amount of time you'll be needing it I'd be inclined to bodge something up!
