If you need to hire a cherry picker but aren’t sure about the differences between the types of hiring options available, have no fear – we are here to help.
In this guide, we will walk you through the key differences between self-hire and operated hire, enabling you to decide which one is right for your specific circumstances.
Whether you’re looking to clear your gutter, deal with a pest bird problem, complete a survey on a house or paint the exterior of your home, hiring the right cherry picker is imperative to ensuring your project gets completed without a hitch.
As its name suggests, cherry picker self-hire is exactly what it says on the tin; the opportunity to hire your own cherry picker for use without the additional need for an operator.
We offer this service to clients across the South East of England, delivering the cherry picker to your site before helping you familiarise yourself with the equipment. We will then make sure you feel confident driving and handling the machinery before leaving you to it.
Choosing cherry picker self-hire is typically a great option for accessing really high or difficult to access areas of a building, and are mainly used by workers in warehouses or on construction sites.
This is because many tradespeople will already have the experience required to operate a self-hire machine, meaning they’re comfortable enough to use them effectively. Therefore, if you’re looking to use a cherry picker for a more residential or domestic type of situation, choosing operated hire could be a more sensible option.
Again, as its name suggests, operated hire works in a similar way to self-hire but with the added bonus of one of our expert operators handling the cherry picker on your behalf. This, in turn, enables you to utilise our years of experience operating a wide variety of cherry pickers, providing you with slightly more choice to choose between.
Whether you need a cherry picker for a domestic, residential, industrial or commercial-related purpose, with one of our skilled operators at the helm, we will be able to provide you with access to a high or awkward part of your building with ease.
The ideal choice for tasks like surveying, cleaning, painting, maintenance or installation work, operated cherry picker hire will also provide you with the peace of mind that you will be safe while working at height, enabling you to get your job done both more quickly and easily.
