There are many jobs where it is just quicker to drive up a "quality" set of ramps vs. jacking and jack stands. Ramps have their place in the shop.

Quality jacks and jack stands can get a vehicle higher then what most ramps can.

Plus jacks/stands are multi functional, they can be used in place of ramps. Ramps can't always be used in place of jacks/stands. Lets see you rotate wheels on a set of ramps .

Key thing to safety is to make sure what you are working with is of quality construction. There are cheap thin sheet metal ramps/jack stands that are spot welded together at the joints that are death traps waiting to catch some one. Always make sure the working load of the ramps/jack stands you are using is greater then the weight of the vehicle you are supporting.
