5 reasons to book an operated hire

Trying to decide between operated or self-drive hire for your next work at height project? Here are 5 reasons why you should consider an operated hire.

We handle everything.

With operated hire, we handle everything for you. We provide the platform and experienced operator, conduct free site surveys, and organise insurance and fuel. All you need to do is your job.

We’ll conduct a free site survey.

We include site surveys for free as part of our operated hire package. We’ll assess the proposed work along with the surrounding environment and come up with the safest and most efficient access solution for your needs.

Our operators are experts.

Our experienced IPAF approved operators are experts at operating our platforms, so you know you’ll be in the safest hands possible. They will:

  • Assess the site and safely set up the platform.
  • Assess the wind, weather, ground conditions and other hazards.
  • Get the best out of the machine, including positioning.
  • Understand what to do in the event of an emergency.
  • Ensure all PPE is worn and used correctly.
  • Operate in conjunction with other equipment.
  • Safely access where you need to work.

You can save money with a half-day hire.

Operated hires are available as a full or half-day hire. You have more control over the length of your hire and can save money on small jobs that don’t require an access platform all day.

Complete peace of mind.

Working at height is still one of the biggest causes of accidents in the workplace. We’re specialists that know how to work safely and keep risks to a minimum. All our equipment is well maintained and serviced, and all our operators are qualified, experienced, and knowledgeable.
