What is powered access hire?

Posted on 02 March 2023

​Powered access hire is a service provided by companies that rent out equipment that provides access to heights and difficult-to-reach areas. This equipment is typically powered, meaning that it operates using an engine or motor. Powered access equipment is used in a wide range of applications, including construction, maintenance, and cleaning.

Some examples of powered access equipment that may be available for hire include:

  • Scissor lifts: These are elevated platforms that can move vertically and are used to provide access to heights.

  •  Boom lifts: These are elevated platforms that can extend horizontally as well as vertically, providing access to areas that are difficult to reach.

  •  Cherry pickers: These are like boom lifts but are mounted on a truck or van, allowing them to be easily transported between sites.

  •  Spider lifts: These are compact, lightweight lifts that can be used on uneven terrain or narrow spaces, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor use.

Powered access hire companies offer flexible rental periods, ranging from a few hours to several days or weeks, depending on the customer's needs. Customers can choose to collect the equipment from the hire company's location, or have it delivered to their site for an additional fee. The hire company is responsible for maintaining and servicing the equipment, ensuring that it is safe and in good working condition for each customer.
