Service & Maintenance

Whether you have one powered access platform or one thousand, our team can provide you with the high quality after-sales support you need to optimise your fleet.

As the UK’s largest independent service provider for powered access platforms and aerial lifting equipment, you can rely on us to service, maintain and repair your platforms. We offer nationwide coverage through our network of mobile CAP-trained service engineers, supported by our repair and refurbishment centre in the Midlands.

We offer a comprehensive and affordable after-sales service, including Thorough Examinations (LOLER 98)planned maintenance, emergency breakdown cover and repairs. We can even provide holiday and depot cover if your own engineers are fully utilised or you’re short of staff!

Plan & Protect Aftercare Range

Our Plan & Protect aftercare range provides peace of mind to access platform owners.

Our affordable aftercare options include:

Thorough Examination & Service plans

Planned, preventative maintenance can help reduce down-time, keep your access platform compliant with the LOLER regulations, and most importantly, keep you working safely and efficiently for longer.

Our standard Thorough Examination & Service plan includes a complete service and mandatory Thorough Examinations every six months in accordance with LOLER. There are no hidden extras; pricing is inclusive of all labour, travel time, mileage and consumables, along with replacement filters, the engineer’s report and Report of Thorough Examination.

Why is regular Service & Maintenance important?

It’s not just about keeping you compliant and your operator’s safe whilst working at height…it can help benefit to your business too! Regular servicing and maintenance can help save you money.

Keeping your access platform(s) in the best possible condition optimises running costs. Our engineers are trained to spot early warnings of any potential problems that could result in expensive and unexpected repairs further down the line. Planned, preventative maintenance can help mitigate these costs and reduce down time.

Furthermore, powered access platforms with a full service history usually command a higher resale price…our Thorough Examination & Service plans are also fully transferable should you sell your equipment before it expires!

What are the benefits of Service & Maintenance?
  • Fixed costs give you greater visibility and better cash flow management
  • Plan your service for when the machine is not in use, to minimise down time
  • Early detection of potential problems reduces breakdowns
  • Minor repairs can prevent major repairs further down the line
  • Servicing optimises machine performance and running costs
  • A full service history will augment the resale value of your equipment
  • A thoroughly maintained access platform has a longer and more productive life
  • Compliance with current legislation and confidence in the safety of your equipment
