MEWPs and Cherry Pickers for Construction works
A number of hazards and risks incur when working at height on a construction site. Managing the supply and logistics of powered access equipment, all whilst ensuring compliance and the health and safety of operators and other workers in the vicinity of working at height tasks can be a daunting task. We have experience of supplying powered access machines to many construction sites over the years from small to large scale projects, and our industry experience makes us ideally positioned to provide you with expert advice, support and guidance when it comes to the provision and use of powered access equipment throughout your construction projects.
Working at Height Safely in Construction
Cherry Pickers provide access for all aspects of construction works from groundworks to roofing and all the bits in between. Our cherry pickers are a lot safer than simple ladders whilst working at height, and easier to erect and move than scaffolding towers, the secure working platform also provides space for tools and equipment. We also offer IPAF training for those who are operating powered access machines through our training division UTN Training .

And with all those years of experience comes the knowledge of what it takes to get the job done quickly, efficiently, and safely. So whatever your requirements may be for powered access platforms we can offer fitting solutions.
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, can support you and your construction project at every height.
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. Truck-mounted and ground-mounted cherry pickers are perfect for reaching awkward or very high works 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.
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.
