What is an electric scissor lift?
An electric scissor lift is a popular type of powered access. It is a platform that rises vertically on a wheeled base via crisscrossing arms hence the “scissor” name. The platform (sometimes called a cab or cage) allows tradesmen to work safely and efficiently at height. Electric scissors lifts are used indoors for a variety of jobs including decorating and maintenance. Platforms can rise from 5 metres up to 22 metres. Some customers find cherry pickers offer more flexibility if access is limited.
Electric scissor lift costs
There are a number of elements to consider when considering the cost of an electric scissor lift. The cost is broken down into the following: basic hire cost, delivery, insurance, VAT and deposit. The basic hire cost will vary depending on the type of equipment and duration of hire. Prices start from £145 per week. Delivery charges are fixed at £150. Short-term plant hire insurance is required by any reputable hire company. At YardLynk we add this as standard, alternatively, if you have your own insurance we would need to see proof of insurance. A refundable security deposit of £500 is required. The deposit is returned 3-5 days after collection and inspection.
