  • Do you need outreach?
  • Is the work going to be carried out indoors or outdoors?

  • Are there any access issues or obstructions? (narrow doorways etc)
  • Floor loading constraints (is there a weight limit on the floor area it will be used?)

This varies on the size and type of machine we will always provide you with a written quote.

We can supply hire units to mainland UK. We have a number of depots that allow us to support most areas.

How soon can I get the unit on site?

Do my operators need training on the equipment?

Yes, anybody using the equipment MUST have an IPAF operator certificate with the correct classification (3a Scissor lift, 3b Boom lift, 1b Spider lift).
