Access Platform Hire Options

You can hire access platforms on a self-drive basis, or with an experienced and qualified MEWP Operator, take a look at our different hire and insurance options below and see which one suits your needs.


Operated Access Platforms

Elev8 hire offer self-drive and operated machines. Below you can find key information on the hire options we offer from insurance options to equipment hire.

All access platforms are available for hire with our fully trained and experienced operators.  Take a look at our operated access platforms page for a full list of our MEWPs available for operated hire.


Self-Drive Access Platforms

If you frequently hire a cherry picker it may be more cost effective to take them on a self-drive basis rather than pay for an operator. All access platforms up to 7.5 tonne are available for self-drive hire. That’s truck mount cherry pickers with a working height of up to 33 meters and tracked access platforms with a working height of up to 36 meters.

A full list of our access platforms available for self-drive can be found on our self-drive access platforms page.
