Three easy steps to hiring a self-drive cherry picker

Hiring cherry pickers on a self-drive basis can save money if you frequently use a MEWP (mobile elevating work platform).  There are lots of advantages to self-drive cherry picker hire, especially if you need to work at height on more than one site.   

We have plenty of cherry pickers available for self-drive hire, providing up to 26 metres working height with our TBR260 truck mounted MEWP, or up to 35.5 metres of working height with our Leo 36T tracked access platform.  We have van mounted platforms which are perfect for working on the highway and 4×4 pick-up mounted MEWPS for working safely at height off the beaten track.  

If you need help deciding which powered access platform is the right one for you or help with the self-drive process, our hire desk team are happy to help.
