Our company is focused on developing and increasing our presence in the end user market. With utilisation levels running at around 90% for a good proportion of our financial year, Managing Director, Steve Riley has decided to further expand the hire fleet. We can now offer a further eight new 6 to 12metre electric skyjack scissor lifts and one Liftlux 153-12 for working at heights above 15 metres.
Steve Riley says "We have a responsibility as a company to provide our customers with high quality and reliable equipment. We offer this at affordable prices whether in rental or resale. In my view, over the past year Skyjack has dominated the small scissor lift market. They have managed, as manufacturers, to provide quality equipment at competitive prices for our rental service. They also provide the best backup service within our market. Over the past ten years Genie have been the main manufacturer to most companies worldwide, however I wanted a manufacturer where the parts and service back up were UK based to provide our customers with the fastest form of recourse if needed."
2012 has been a constructive and challenging year for us. While constantly expanding our service and hire customer base, we have also moved into used access platform sales in a major way. 12 months ago we made a commitment to be one of the biggest suppliers of used access platforms in the UK. We hold at any one point over 100 used access platforms in stock for sale. All of our used equipment comes with a market leading warranty period of 90 days, 6 months LOLER as well as being fully serviced. We also cosmetically refurbish around 60% of our used manchines, which includes repainting and applying new decals.
We goal is to become one of the UK's best resellers of used access platforms and aim to expand on our growth in 2012, whilst keeping a sharp focus on providing the highest standards and contiunued customer satisfaction.
