Scaffold Tower Hire

Rent a Scaffold Tower

Many people find that a ladder just doesn't extend sufficiently for them to undertake some external diy jobs. If you are working at height then it isn't just the fact that a ladder won't extend enough for such jobs but it doesn't have a wide enough platform for you to work safely. When you are planning a project that involves working on the upper storey of your home then it is a good idea to rent a scaffold tower. Scaffold towers usually have fairly wide working platforms with a set of safety rails, which makes them much more appropriate for working at height than an ordinary household ladder.

The Cost of Renting a Scaffold Tower

Before you finally decide to rent a scaffold tower, you need to have some sort of plan for your project, if you underestimate how long the job will take then this will have an impact on how much it will cost you to rent a scaffold tower. Most people who decide to undertake a diy project often have little understanding of how long the job will take them and then wonder why it has cost them more than they anticipated. Try to give yourself some leeway on time and if you think the job will take two days it's best to give yourself three to be on the safe side. Some scaffold tower rental companies will only charge you the basic rate if you need to keep the equipment for an extra day or two, but others may charge a slightly higher fee because you have gone outside the terms of the original agreement. Plan the job first and then you will have a fair idea of what it is going to cost you to rent a scaffold tower.

Finding a Reputable Company

You only have to spend a couple of minutes searching the internet and you'll find that there are lots of companies that offer scaffold tower rental, but if you do rent one from an online supplier you could find that the delivery or shipping charges will bust your budget. The best thing to do is to ask around about local companies and see whether family, friends or a neighbour can recommend a reputable company from which you can rent a scaffold tower. If you can get a recommendation, go for it because you can rest assured that the equipment you hire will be up to the job, which is the most important criterion when you decide to rent a scaffold tower.

Risk Assessment

Whenever building professionals are engaged to work on a project, one of the first things they will do is undertake a risk assessment. When you rent a scaffold tower it's a good idea to check the area outside your home where you plan to work, for potential problems or hazards. Check out the ground where you plan on erecting the tower, if it is uneven it could be dangerous and you may need to find another angle to work from. These simple checks are just some of the things that a professional would consider when undertaking a risk assessment.
