Elev8 operates a national fleet of MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Working Platforms) which have been carefully selected with our customers safety and high level work requirements in mind.


Our company purpose is “Rent Reliability”.

 Elev8 invest in world class lifting equipment.  We purchase our powered access platforms from trusted manufacturers with safety, reliability and flexibility when working at height in mind.  Our fleet of aerial platforms is new and technologically advanced enabling our customers to safely access and work at high level.


Elev8 operators are IPAF trained and skilled.  They have years of experience of operating MEWPs and are customer focused and helpful.  For operated access hire they will risk assess site conditions before starting work and document this.  If you prefer to hire a cherry picker for self-drive our operators will familiarise you with the operating controls and safety features of our MEWPs.


Our Hire desk is here to help you select the most appropriate aerial platform for both the site and the high level task you need to perform. 


Experienced Surveyors are available to visit site and complete a comprehensive site survey to assist in selecting the most appropriate cherry picker for the job.

Tracked Access Platforms 

For sites that have limited space for access or need an access platform that weighs less for ground loading, one of our self propelled booms will do the job.

Known in the access industry as spiders, these clever pieces of lifting equipment fold up small enough to go through doorways for use inside and can be fuelled by diesel or electric.
