    Scissor Lift Hire

    Looking to hire a Scissor lift? Contact us to ensure you receive the best machine for your application.

    A scissor lift is a mobile work platform designed to drive at a safe height. Ideal for working indoors between racking systems, within a warehouse or a logistics environment. Outdoors applications include fitting external signage, window replacement or exterior painting. Scissor lifts operate vertically to allow access to areas at height, because of this the machine must be on level ground and sited directly below or alongside the target work area.

  • Cherry Picker Hire

    Cherry Picker Hire

    Let National Platforms take care of your cherry picker hire requirements with a free no obligation survey or quote.

    Cherry Pickers, also known as Boom Lifts can offer ‘outreach’ due to extendable sections of the boom. When considering boom lift hire it is important to understand that this ‘outreach’ can be in either a straight line or articulated to offer users an ‘up and over’ capability. Booms are mobile and versatile and can be driven at height within certain safety parameters.

  • Low Level Access Hire

    Low Level Access Hire

    Need to hire low level access equipment? Let our team at National Platforms take care of your access platform hire requirements.

    Low level access hire is a cost-effective, safe alternative to using aluminium towers, ladders and steps. Available in a range of working heights up to 5 meters, we can provide machines which are either manual or battery powered and self-propelled. Push-around or ‘manual’ machines are easier and more productive than manual access, allowing users to position the platform exactly where it’s needed.

  • Truck Mounted Platform Hire

    Truck Mounted Platform Hire

    Looking at truck mounted platform hire? National Platforms can help guide you whatever your requirements.

    Where are best to use Truck Mounted Platforms?
    Designed for specific applications where scissor lifts, boom lifts and low-level access platforms are just not appropriate. Truck mounted cherry pickers are based on a HGV vehicle and come operated with their own qualified driver operator. Ideal for one day jobs on highways etc as they are able to clear the area as soon as the job is finished. They have jack legs that have to be deployed when the boom is being operated so are static.

  • Track Mounted Platform Hire

    Track Mounted Platform Hire

    Allow our team at National Platforms to take care of your specialist track mounted platform hire requirements with a no obligation survey or quote.

    Track mounted platforms (also known as a tracked boom or spiderlifts) are narrow when travelling (less than 1m) and much lighter than the standard cherry picker on wheels so need to deploy stabilizing legs before being able to lift. They are on caterpillar tracks and can pass through narrow gateways behind buildings and still reach heights of up to 50m as long as there is enough room to deploy the stabilizing legs.

  • Van Mounted Platform Hire

    Van Mounted Platform Hire

    For all your van mounted platform hire requirements call us to ensure fast, flexible machine hire whatever the environment may be.

    Van mounted platforms are specialist access equipment designed for applications where scissor lifts, low-level access platforms and standard cherry pickers are not suitable. Van mounts are a cherry picker mounted on top of a van from the inside. The van is similar to a truck mount with the benefit of deploying legs before being raised for stability but with the advantage of having the van to carry tools and any goods required to carry out works.

  • Training


    Are your employees trained for the equipment they’re handling?

    As it’s an employers responsibility to make sure their employees are adequately trained, it is essential when working at heights that you have the team or individual with the skill set to do so.
