27 Nov How To Identify A Great Access Hire Company In South Africa
Investing in major equipment for your business (whether you’re hiring or buying it) is not a decision that can be taken lightly – especially if you’re going to be using it at height, as there’s a considerable safety and damage risk involved. Given the magnitude of construction and building projects underway across the country, access hire in South Africa has become a lucrative business. But not every company are the experts they profess to be, nor do they have the required skills. How can you choose an access hire company that can deliver professionally? There are several points that you should be looking out for, as detailed below.
They Offer A Wide Range Of Products
Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) are the way to go, but depending on your specific needs, you might require a cherry picker, access platform or manlift. While all make use of new technology and are safe to use, if an access company is serious about being in business today, they need to stock a variety of MEWPs to choose from and help you to match with one that best meets your needs.
They Meet The Necessary Regulations
According up South African legislation, all machines must be load tested at least once a year to ensure that they work smoothly. Does the company you’re looking at comply with this and do they have the necessary certification to prove that they have?
Their Machines Are Well Maintained
If you’re hiring a machine, you don’t know who’s used it before you and what condition it will be in. Not only does this potentially compromise your quality of work should the machine malfunction, it will also cost you time and money due to the delay while you find a functioning machine. A quality access hire company will service and maintain its machines between uses and will ensure that you get one that works when and how you need it.
