Cherry picker hire

If you need work carrying out at height the first thing to source is how are you going to reach the area to to complete the task.

Most people think automatically Scaffold needed.

Not True –  tracked Access Platforms are becoming more and more popular for carrying out high level maintenance tasks and at large discount to using scaffold.

As long as there is space to set the machine up which requires only 12ft you can get up to great heights to carry out tasks.

We offer free surveys to ensure you get the right machine to carry out high level work safely.

The machine is brought in and set up and work completed.

The machine can then leave the premises and be stowed back onto its trailer.

There is no waiting for scaffold firms to turn up.

No ugly scaffold around your property which can create security problems.

No broken roof tiles from scaffold.

No waiting for 2 weeks until the scaffold is taken down.

On average on a 3 storey house we can save clients approx £300-£600 over scaffold costs

This plus the benefits of the above make the choice of using cherry Pickers/tracked access platforms paramount if you are looking to save money and have the work carried out quickly and efficiently.

Scaffold is messy for a building especially having to knock holes in the building to secure the scaffold which never seem to get filled in.

Harrogate Access Platforms are proving a big hit with the Yorkshire public in supplying quality services at very good prices for carrying out their high level maintenance in safe manner.

Our cherry picker is easy to use,easy to set up and we can give you a full familiarisation lesson if you would like to hire without a fully trained IPAF Operator.

Working at Height

Welcome to my first blog!!

Well  it’s been a great 3 months working with out 18.75m tracked access platform and it’s been well received by the Yorkshire community.

The machine can fit through a standard 3ft gate and only needs 12ft to set up.

We have saved lots of clients a fortune over the hassles and costs of using scaffold. I still see many many properties with scaffold erected and feel it’s just a matter of time and more marketing to make people more aware of the huge savings that can be made by using cherry pickers.

It is so much less invasive than using scaffold as there are no holes knocked into the building and no roof tiles broken from having to put boards on the roof to rest scaffold, which invariably breaks tiles.

There are also security issues with scaffold as people can access high level windows whereas with a platform it is brought in, task completed and the platform is removed.

No fuss, no mess, no scaffold left up for weeks.

I believe cherry pickers are the future for carrying out high level specialist works and as people become more aware that there are better alternatives than scaffold they will become the No 1 choice for carrying out working at height safely

We had our first strange request last week where we had a client who could not get a new oven up the stairs so we had to take a large window out at the side of the pub and it was lifted with our platform up and through the opened window.

The client was very happy and it was another good experience to put under my belt since gaining my IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) Qualification.

All Health & Safety requirements were met before any work was carried out as we are Safe Contractor Accredited and take the safety of our employees, clients and general public as paramount.

See you for my next blog when I will be telling you what we have been getting up too, new clients, future plans
