When the storms are over, there will be a lot of clearing up to be done. There seems to be a national epidemic of trampolines caught in trees for a start. Trees themselves have been damaged, high hedges, tall structures of all sorts will have been in for a battering. There will probably be quite a few roofs that aren't in quite the right place any more too.

The need for additional high access plant at short notice is likely to be high. If you find yourself needing to go up in the world safely and reliably, check out our range of powered access plant in stock, ready to go.

All are fully serviced before they go to their new homes and come with a full 6 month LOLER certificate. All current access platforms are listed on our In Stock page, or if you prefer the human touch, call us on the number above to talk over your MEWP needs.

Where else could you get such an uninterrupted view of the scenery around Bridgend? This photograph was taken from the platform of a Genie Z135/70 while carrying out its 6 monthly LOLER examination.

On-site certification can save valuable down time and keep your equipment on-site ready to get back to work as soon as the test is done.

This van mounted Versalift 36NF came to us in a fairly sorry state. A long period without maintenance and a lack of grease to lubricate the slew bearing had caused it to wear past the manufacturer' permitted tolerance.

With new bearing fitted and lubricated, the rest of the machine was submitted to a thorough examination to check for other worn components. None were found so a quick clean and grease of the other moving parts was all that was required.

Finally, a load test and LOLER examination were carried out so that the platform could get back to work and earning money for its owner again.

If you have a platform that needs a repair, and want it done when it suits you, get in touch. You can either call on the number shown, or click in the header of any page to send us an email.

This repair was carried out for a customer across the bridge in Somerset. The image shows their machine in our Chepstow workshop with its booms out.

Work carried out to this 3.5 tonne truck mounted access platform included replacing the extend and retract chains. The guidelines from CTE stipulate mandatory replacement of chains after ten years. We also carried out a full boom strip and inspection of all internal parts along with the fitting of new chains.

The work was finished with a load test and thorough examination, and issue of a new LOLER certificate.

The platform is now on its way back to Weston-Super-Mare, ready to put back into service. If you have a machine in need of service or repair and want to minimise downtime, you may find our flexible approach to scheduling according to your workload, rather than ours refreshing. Call us on the number shown, or click in the header of any page to send an email for more details.

This Genie S40 has undergone a complete service and cosmetic refresh in our workshops and is now ready to take on new challenges with a new owner.

Built in 1996, it has completed just 4394 hours of service. The timing belt has been replaced, a thorough test carried out and a new 6 month LOLER certificate comes with the machine.

For more details see our In Stock page.
