Scissor Lift Hire in Melbourne


Alongside our expert scaffolding services, we also provide a diverse range of lifting equipment for virtually any construction or engineering situation. From aerial platforms and vertical personnel lifts to forklifts and lifting transport, we have a wide selection here in stock ready to roll.


Founded on the success of our scaffolding business that began servicing the building industry in 1997, we have over 30 years’ experience in all types of access needs. We have supplied our customers on Melbourne’s major building projects, including the MCG redevelopment, reconstruction of the Docklands and Docklands Stadium, Crown Casino, Federation Square, The State Library and Museum, along with every major shopping centre in Victoria.

Our company understands that some building projects require access options other than scaffolding, so we proudly offer scissor lift hire and boom lift hire in Melbourne as well. You’re sure to find the lifting equipment you need in our selection, whether you’re undertaking a home improvement project or a major construction job.

Reliable Boom Lift and Scissor Lift Hire

Scissor lifts provide an ideal solution for crews or individuals that need to work above ground level. They allow you to raise both workers and equipment to the desired elevation with precision and efficiency. You can also feel safe while working on scissor lifts, as they provide sturdy support and feature guardrails that protect against falls. We have scissor lifts that extend between 4.5 metres and 20.5 metres high.

If your project requires you to work above an existing structure or landscaping element, a boom lift may be more suitable for your job. These lifts also allow workers and equipment to go safely above ground level, but they give you more control over where the platform sits while you work. Our boom lifts extend to heights that range from 9 metres to 45 metres.
