Our services entered the market as the safest alternative to scaffolding and ladders that had been widely used for height access in all industries. Today it is hard to believe that all those old and large projects including arenas and tall buildings were constructed without help of boom lifts. The efforts, time and labor put into those projects were enormous. Fortunately, it’s much simpler and fast these days. It’s the epoch of great architectural projects and technological solutions. And the role of aerial work platforms in their implementation is crucial, although they remain in the shadow.
Workers can be very productive when they have our workhorses on site. Every building being constructed today is completed with help of boom lifts. Airports, hospitals, shopping centers, skyscrapers… But does it actually mean that building companies all have expensive aerial work platforms in the arsenal? What about smaller businesses? How can they afford it?
The popular solution is rental of boom lifts from companies like Alpha Platforms. It is especially true, when you deal with irregular and different projects whose requirements to height access equipment tend to vary. One project may require a telescopic boom lift with the ultimate vertical height access, another one a compact machine powered by a battery for work in a warehouse. So, it makes no sense to buy expensive boom lifts with certain technical characteristics when your needs change from one project to another. Your best solution is rental services from Alpha Platforms.
Why rental is better for you than purchase
Yes, the answer is on the surface. Any repair or maintenance is your financial responsibility. As well as obsolescence of boom lifts. Add training of your personnel, fueling of machines and their storage to realize the stratospheric costs of such purchase.
Boom lifts offered for rental are already tested, well-maintained and inspected, so you obtain the best alternative to buying an aerial lift.
Choosing an appropriate boom lift for your job
In order to choose the best truck mounted boom lift model among the available fleet, consider the following factors:
- Features of the work site: terrain, obstacles, area.
- Maximum load capacity – how many workers you need to lift and how heavy the necessary tools and materials are.
- The required height. Choose a boom lift that can lift up even higher to better meet your needs.
- Necessity to overcome obstacles at height.
Safety is the key requirement
When you deal with manipulation at height, you need to think of safety as the top priority. Luckily, the top-notch machines from Alpha Platforms are designed to ensure maximum safety.
