If you operate a business that works at height or needs to access hard to reach places that are out of sight, you’ll need some form of access equipment. Access equipment (such as articulated boom lifts) is useful when you frequently need to get near to roofs or higher structures, and it’s popular with businesses that manage large warehouses or work in building construction and maintenance. If this describes your business, how do you know when you should rent the necessary equipment or purchase it outright? Here you’ll see how buying an articulating boom will benefit your business in the long run.
Why Choose An Articulating Boom?
Of all the access equipment available on the market, articulating booms are the most versatile and practical. Not only are they great for working indoors, but they’re also great for manoeuvring around obstacles, and getting in hard to reach places. For example, imagine trying to fix a street light that’s surrounded by big trees. An articulating boom lift can get you up and down, quickly and easily with no harm to you or the tree. This makes it more beneficial than other forms of access equipment such as telescopic booms which are better used for stacking and can’t manoeuvre around obstacles.
Why You Should Consider Buying Instead Of Renting
Depending on your needs and on the business that you are running, investing in an articulating boom might benefit you more in the long run than renting. If you use it more often than any other kind of boom lift, you may save money by purchasing one instead of renting. Secondly, if you own one, you don’t have to worry about missing deadlines because of equipment being unavailable. Lastly, no one knows your business quite as you do. This means that you know the projects you take on and the dimensions of the equipment you need. You can buy an articulating boom based on your exact height and power needs.
With all the benefits of purchasing an articulating boom lift, it’s easy to see why you should be looking to buy rather than hire one. Sterling Access has articulating boom lifts for sale, so contact us today to view our full range of quality access equipment.
