Gaining access to high and/or hard-to-reach areas on a building to carry out essential work usually necessitates the erection of layers of unsightly and intrusive scaffolding.

Construction workers, trades people and householders who need to work at height on a property see no alternative other than to order in a scaffolding crew, which takes time to arrange, time to erect, and then has to stay in place until the scaffolders’ schedule allows for dismantling and removal.

Cherry Picker Hire Bath

All that – and sometimes just so you can clean out the gutters, replace a couple of tiles or paint a chimney stack.

The awkward and costly process of having a scaffolding system put up very often means building owners hold off of undertaking required maintenance work, and for construction companies it is an inconvenience which can sometimes delay a project.

So, is there an alternative to scaffolding? Indeed there is – and one which builders and maintenance workers in Bath and the surrounding area are delighted to discover.

Roman Skylifts have, quite literally, risen to the challenge of making it quick, easy, safe and affordable to reach those high out-of-the-way places, without having to experience the trials and tribulations of summoning the scaffolders.

The alternative to scaffolding offered by Roman Skylifts is a high access platform service. The company has a fleet of cherry pickers (also known as boom lifts or basket cranes) and high access platforms for hire – ideal for work on construction sites where space may be limited, or for reaching roofs and upper storeys for maintenance work on those beautiful Bath stone buildings.

Just a phone call to Roman Skylifts will have a suitably sized cherry picker platform heading your way with a professional, fully trained IPAF Operator (National Standard) in charge. Without delay you or your workers can be safely sent aloft to reach the job in hand, and when the job’s done the platform will simply be folded down and driven away.

The high access platforms provided by Roman Skylifts provide access solutions for all sorts of purposes, from roofing on private houses to repairing church steeples; high-rise office window cleaning to tree surgery.

Compared to scaffolding, hiring a cherry picker from Roman Skylifts saves time and the space that would be taken up by poles and planking. It removes the hazard and eyesore of having scaffolding left against a building overnight or during weekends and is a much safer high access solution than using an extended ladder.

The cherry picker was operated professionally allowing me to concentrate on fixing the guttering. Thanks Roman Skylifts “
