    We have a wide range of cherry pickers that are well suited to warehouses, utilised in stocktaking or racking installation or the maintenance and repair of warehouse racking, lights or heating units at elevated heights. We believe these are a safe option for you and your employees to work at height, the secure working platform also provides space for tools and equipment.


    Installation and Warehouse Maintenance

    Depending on the nature of the work activity in a warehouse environment, an AFI powered access machine can be supplied. If work needs be carried out in between narrow aisles, we have a range of a narrow MEWPs suitable for the job. Also if using one of our electrical powered access machines there are no exhaust fumes indoors. We have a range of versatile work platforms suitable for indoor work where we have machines with special non-marking tyres so that the machine does not leave tracks and electric and hybrid MEWPs for more sensitive environments.

    It’s important to choose powered access based on each individual installation for the safe and efficient installation of racking systems within warehouses and distribution centres. This will be dependent on the storage requirements and racking configuration of each facility.

  • Popular powered access machines used in Warehousing

  • Experience

    For over 20 years, we've been on the job with companies working in warehousing. 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.

    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 racks or lighting 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.

    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.
