    Scissor lift and boom lift hire for UK Airport facilities

    We can help contractors with Powered Access at Heathrow/Gatwick/Stansted/Birmingham and other UK Airports.

    We have the power to supply and deliver all your powered access needs at Heathrow Airport. With a fleet of 6,000 MEWPs from 3m PAVs to 59m boom lifts, over 100 training courses and on-site contacts, we'll help you get the job done smoothly and efficiently.

  • Why choose us?

    MEWP deliveries direct to site

    We have permission to book-in deliveries and collections to and from all five terminals, so all you need to do is call us to hire the machine then we'll do the rest.

    Airside Access

    Many of our experienced Engineers are fully airside approved. This is key, as receiving a temporary pass can take up to 48 hours.

    Three AFI depots with training facilities in the area

    For Heathrow, we have three depots in the local area with our nearest depot just a few miles away in Iver. It is also here that we hold our work at height courses such as PASMA and IPAF.

    We have a wide range of cherry pickers that are well suited to working on both heavy and light maintenance and remediation work at elevated heights. We believe these are a safe option for you and your employees to work at height.

  • No matter the size and scale of your project, AFI can help. All of our machines are maintained to the highest standards and serviced regularly adhering to all relevant safety criteria. If you are an industrial engineering contractor in need of a truck-mounted cherry picker or an industrial manufacturer needing a scissor lift, our Airport Project Management Team can help.

    Different maintenance and FM activities at airports often demand different solutions for working at heights. In addition to our regular range of products, we can also adjust our machines so that our customers always have the precise machine for the job in hand.

  • Reach higher with our extended Super-Set high reach MEWP Fleet

    The Super-Set is our range of large machines including Electric and Diesel Scissor Lifts, Diesel Articulating Boom Lifts and Diesel Straight Stick Boom Lifts. With reach heights ranging from 21.40m to 58.56m, whatever the job, we have a machine to help you do it.

  • Popular powered access machines used by contractors on airport maintenance projects

  • Experience

    For over 20 years, we've been on the job with companies working on heavy and light, planned and preventative maintenance projects at major UK airports. With all those years of experience comes the knowledge of what it takes to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and safely. Whatever your requirements may be for powered access platforms we can offer fitting solutions.

    Whilst the worker is standing in the elevated basket, we can also provide for hire a professional operator who has the flexibility to raise the basket to all necessary heights. Cherry pickers are perfect for reaching awkward or very high places or work above from the ground level. All cherry picker operators are fully IPAF trained.

    If in doubt about which machine offers the best solution, you can request a site survey.

    We also offer IPAF training for those who are operating powered access machines through our training division UTN Training.

  • Cherry pickers are one of the most popular ways to work at height. With platform heights ranging from 3m to 75m across our portfolio which includes scissor lifts, boom lifts, spider lifts, van and truck-mounted platforms for external works, we can support your airport maintenance project at every height.

    If just one scissor lift is required or multiple powered access machines with an assortment of different specifications, we can help. We will work with you to ensure the correct MEWP is selected, based on the working height, load capacity and outreach requirements to tailor a hire package that meets the specific needs of your project. All our machines are maintained to the highest standards and serviced regularly adhering to all relevant safety criteria.
