Wilson Access Hire History

Founded by Tom Wilson in November 2002, the company quickly established a name for excellent service at cost-effective prices.

By 2003, Wilson Access Hire had purchased two further truck-mounted cherry pickers and was developing from being an owner-operator company. The company now supplies truck-mounted cherry pickers up to 53 meters, with fully-trained IPAF operators, as well as a wide range of self-drive cherry pickers.

In 2011, Wilson Access Hire expanded its fleet further by taking delivery of two 32 meter truck-mounted cherry pickers and two 21 meter truck-mounted cherry pickers. With plans to add further access equipment to the fleet, the company is bucking the current economic trend by expanding successfully in the market in difficult times. .
