When hiring any sort of equipment, you want the experience to be as smooth and convenient as possible. Issues or mistakes with the process of hiring equipment can lead to delays, setbacks, and just general annoyances.

Hiring a boom lift can add value to your project, but how do you ensure that your boom lift hire experience is a positive one?

Know What Type of Boom Lift Will Best Meet Your Needs

There are various types of boom lifts, such as articulating boom lifts, telescopic boom lifts and more. Ensure that the boom lift you plan on hiring meets all your specific project needs.

Have an Accurate Idea on the Length of the Project

Through proper planning, you should be able to get an accurate idea of how long you will need the boom lift for. By providing the access hire company with an accurate time frame you can avoid spending too much money (hiring for too long) and avoid having to return the boom lift before you are done using it (hiring for too short).

Consider Your Access Needs

What are the heights that you’ll need to reach using your boom lift? Boom lifts come in a wide range of different heights, so it is important that you choose a boom lift that provides the necessary height that meets your access needs.

Look After the Boom Lift and Ensure That You Have Trained Personnel Using the Boom Lift

One of the situations that can have a truly negative impact on your boom lift hire experience would be if something had to happen to the boom lift, and for it to be your fault. In this scenario, you may be liable for the repair costs, and you may be without a boom lift for a period. Therefore, it is very important that you only allow trained personnel to operate any machinery.

If there is a technical fault in the boom lift, or damage of any kind occurs, it is best to call your access hire company immediately.
