A car ramp provides a simple method of raising an automobile from the ground in order to access the undercarriage. Utilizing a ramp is reported among the three easiest ways to elevate a car. The remaining two methods include using a jack or jack stands.[1] Car ramps also offer safety for mechanics due to vehicle stability during car maintenance and repairs. Some ramp types can be built at home and hand-made with simple tools.[2][3]
