FAQ’S

Access equipment offers many advantages including safety, versatility, speed and ultimately productivity.

Safety – access platforms offer an enclosed cage or basket to work from. No more balancing on a ladder rung or scaffolding board.

Versatility – straight up and down, up and over, wherever you need to get to, chances are we can get you there – safely.

Speed – no need to erect, dismantle, erect again. Finish one area, drive to the next.

Productivity – working faster = less labour time = less cost = more savings

Not at all, you can hire on a cash basis (payable upfront) if a short term or one-off rental. There is a bit of paperwork to fill in of course.
