    Electric cherry pickers for indoor film sets, and emission sensitive environments

    We have invested significantly to replace our powered access fleet with Electric and Hybrid equipment. Our electric and hybrid fleet are quiet, and the low emissions make them ideal for use on enclosed sets, indoor productions, and emission sensitive environments.

Not sure what powered access equipment you require?

  • Popular powered access machines used by TV and Media Production companies

  • Experience

    AFI-Rentals is a recommended supplier to the UK Production & Broadcasting Industry by the prestigious BAFTA Albert Consortium.  AFI were able to demonstrate an ongoing commitment to reducing the environmental impact that our specialist powered access equipment has on film and media production processes.  As an Albert sustainable supplier, we support the UK production industry’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. As a result, the productions can display the albert sustainable production logo at the end of their credits.

    Whilst the crew member 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 AFI 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 up 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 media production 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.
