Cherry picker hire is available for projects that require up and over access rather than just vertical access. This is ideal for projects where you may encounter obstacles like trees or smaller buildings that a scissor lift won’t be able to access on its own. Cherry picker hire in Bristol is available for both indoor and outdoor projects. With our huge range of cherry pickers, we’re sure to have one that will do the job you need.

Our expert team can assist you in selecting the ideal cherry picker for your specific project requirements.

Scissor Lift Hire in Bristol and the Somerset Area

Star Platforms is proud to supply scissor lifts to Bristol and the surrounding South West area. We offer a range of scissor lifts within our fleet that can be used for a variety of jobs. The choice will depend on the working site, as well as the working heights that are needed.

With all the choices, choosing the right scissor lift for the job may be overwhelming. We’ve included some advice here that can be taken into consideration when choosing your scissor lifts.

Diesel scissor lift hire is available for outdoor work sites with rough terrain. Often a diesel engine will offer more power than an electric engine, allowing the scissor lift to move easily through the rough terrain. Electric scissor lift hire, on the other hand, is ideal for indoor jobs. Diesel engines emit toxic gases that, when inside, can cause health issues. Electric scissor lifts are powered using batteries, making them much safer to use indoors. Battery power, however, is not as strong as diesel and so will not work on rough terrain.

If you’re still left unsure, our team is here to offer expert advice to anyone in the Bristol and South West area. Get in touch and we can help!
