How do I hire a platform?

Once you have selected the access platform you would like to hire you can call our team on 0844 288 9338 or you can log into your Wilson / AFI online account and order a selection of machines directly online. Our team are always happy to offer advice if you are unsure which machine is the most suitable for your project, or if you need to arrange a site survey.

Do I need to wear a Harness?

Whilst there is no legal requirement to wear a Harness, both the International Powered Access Federation and the Health and Safety Executive strongly advise and recommend that a full body harness complete with a short restraint lanyard is used when working from a vehicle mounted boom or self-propelled boom type MEWP. You can speak to our team if you need to purchase a harness from us.
