Working at height often requires a level of versatility, especially when considering that the very height you’re working at is subject to change. Of course, conventional scaffolding equipment has its uses, but when you need something that can change to fit your needs much faster, then you’re probably looking for a MEWP.
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms do exactly what they say on the tin; they are pieces of powered access equipment which can be used to get a worker and his tools up to and around an area that may be otherwise time consuming to work on.
MEWPs include cherry pickers, scissor lifts, low level access platforms, as well as various other specific pieces of machinery. Also, as they are powered access equipment, they’re potentially more manoeuvrable than more static equipment, which allows a MEWP hire to be more cost effective based on the tasks capable of being performed, not to mention the variety of uses provided by the respective variety of MEWPs available.
A MEWP hire is also advantageous over retail purchase, for several reasons. For example, powered equipment can take up a significant amount of space on site, or in a storage facility. Therefore, it’s much easier to simply call us up and arrange a collection, which avoids all the difficulties that come with arranging long term storage for the MEWPs.
In addition, hiring from a trusted and certified company such as Lakeside-Hire means you can be assured that all the equipment you receive on-site will be good to go as soon as it arrives. All of our equipment is maintained by our professional yard team to the Health and Safety Executive’s standard, meaning it’s completely safe to use.
So, if you’re looking for some gear with a little more power on-site, give us a call, shoot us an email, or browse the website, and we’ll get you a high quality MEWP hire.
