    Hello there @tuttutut and welcome, thanks for your query :) As a wheelchair user myself, I can share in the frustration of inaccessible places!

    I'm not sure I can recommend somewhere to have them made smaller, but the Ramp People do sell a variety of different types of ramps, and might be able to suggest somewhere which can adapt your ramp for you.

    Do you have an occupational therapist (OT)? If the ramp being too wide is a problem for your own front door, they may be able to recommend or advocate for a more suitable ramp, or help to widen your doorway.

    Let us know if we can help with anything else, or if we've missed anything :)
