Hiring vs. Buying

Capital outlay, storage, insurance and maintenance are all factors that would have to be taken into consideration, and Liftman, with its high-quality ‘Height for Hire’ equipment, relieves the client of all these expensive and difficult issues.
Did you Know – Cherry-Pickers
The Cherry Picker was given its unusual name because it was originally designed to enable pickers to reach high branches when harvesting cherries. It needed to be flexible and comparatively light in order to avoid damage to the trees. These advantages soon became clear to those who saw other uses for manoeuvrable high-level platforms.
Cherry Pickers are still used for harvesting fruit, but their uses have extended into most commercial sectors. Wherever there is a need for a high-reach machine, in storage facilities, on building sites, factories and farms, aerial work platforms are to be found. Raised platforms have been used for erecting or replacing advertising hoardings, for repairs to the upper stories of buildings, and they even have a place in the DIY sector; those with a talent for refurbishing the exterior appearance of their property have found a mobile platform to be a far better option than cumbersome scaffolding, or potentially insecure ladders.
Temporary access to difficult or inaccessible areas can be a problem, particularly for small businesses or individuals for whom expense and storage are matters of importance, or for larger commercial concerns with a short-term access problem to solve.
