This weekend’s festivities in the city of Chicago will put a strain on the cities resources to keep everyone safe – this includes a police force, garbage and other trash disposal, and an increase of Metra, taxi, and “L” riders.
Originally created in 1991 and lasting for 6 years before a revival in 2003, Lollapalooza has become a largely popular music festival in Grant Park, Chicago IL largely lasting for three days.
Then what happens?
Fans must flock back to their daily lives, vendors return to their restaurants, and rental companies move their equipment to the next location.
Most often neglected are the grounds this festival is held on – roughly 319 acres of grass, gardens, and other various large events. When those fans, vendors, and other personnel vacate the premises, what’s often left is a grass-less field in desperate need of repair.
Many times, grounds coordinators will rip up the remains of grass in favor of new sod, shipped in from other states. The problem is, how will they get these giant rolls of sod off the trucks and layed in rows?
The answer is Handi-Ramp’s yard ramp. Available in two different overall lengths, a yard ramp is trucked in via flatbed, and once on the ground a full size freighter can back up to its higher end to unload. A forklift can then drive up, grab the rolls of sod one by one, back out of the truck and safely onto the ground.
It truly could not be any easier.
Over the years our yard ramps have been rented to repair the playing surface of various sporting stadiums. Yard ramps can be rented for a short or longer period of time. To reserve yours today, please call 1-800-876-RAMP.
