What is the cost of hiring a Scissor Lift

We often get enquiries about the approximate cost to hire a scissor lift. Please note that we have discussed cherry picker hire costs in a previous post.

Often it is small businesses or even private property owners just wanting an approximate cost to understand if it is an option worth considering for their project.

The purpose of this blog post is to give some indication of Scissor Lift Hire Costs for budgeting purposes.

Factors Affecting Scissor Lift Hire Costs

Equipment availability is always a big factor. If it is a quiet time and the equipment is available then we are naturally keen to put together a very competitive quote. If your project dates are flexible then we may have more flexibility on price. 

The environment in which the scissor lift is going to be used and the level of use affects the level of wear and tear and so the overall price of hire.

Obviously the length of hire, distance of delivery are significant factors. As are the over all equipment requirements. For example is it is a regular requirement or a one off contract? Is other equipment required on the same site, project or account?
