Nowadays we have
our COPIERS. However, we maintain 90% of the market and GUARANTEE
that we are big enough to undersell them and have been here long
enough for you to value our LIFETIME GUARANTEE.........that's if
you find any copier not dangerously cutting down the quality.
Of course one day
we will discover a copier trying to make from paper mashy!

During the life of
the company we have built many unique car effects the sole purpose
of launching new cars on behalf of the worlds largest car manufactures.
On many of these occasions we would have a need to raise a car onto
a stage quickly, easily and often without power.
The fact that most
vehicles are 2/3rds front heavy gave us the idea of inventing a
©SEE-SAW car stage to lift these cars on site at events. Then, after
using the system at many dealerships we were ask to build units
for clients. These clients wanted to raise a Car Of The Week
on the front forecourt. Or create a Staged Look at a shopping
centre or show.
From over 30 initial
build designs we eventually developed what has become known as the
©seesaw car stage or ©seesaw ramp. Many things affected the current
design. Height, length and centre balance are all intrinsically
tied to each other. Strength and portability was also a major issue
over such a length.
Too high and the rate
of climb meant the front valance or exhaust would foul. The only
way to overcome this is with more length. However, more length on
today's compact car sites is simply not possible. We had to keep
within a reasonable length, get a good height with a reasonable
incline to ensure extra space was taken up.
Balance points needed
to be controlled and each car on the market would have a different
balance point. It was not acceptable to have the unit tilting before
the car was on the frame. Or, have the unit bending because of the
extra stresses exerted during climb up.
The mathematics of
height v length v balance simply did not work out on paper. Trial
and error was the only way forward and after a 2 years of trials
a final design was agreed. The design then had to be stress tested
to destruction by specialist. Even with over 6 tonnes of weight
we still had no sign of collapse. So, after receiving certification
we now approve 2.5 tonne of weight on each pair of units. In reality,
rarely does a car weight exceed 2 tonne.
Since conception CarStages™
and rentAramp™ have built well over 6,000 sets of the ©seesaw car
stage. Of course we have made many designs and like car makers we
also have sold less robust units under other names.
These units are now
used all over the UK as The Standard to lift cars up for
display. Being lightweight, requiring no power, no maintenance and
no servicing has made the ©seesaw stage a huge success among dealers
and exhibition suppliers all over the UK and indeed the world.
