When hiring access equipment, it’s important to consider the following:
  • What kind of ground conditions will the equipment be used on?
    • Concrete
    • Hard stand
    • Rough terrain
  • Are non-marking tyres required?
  • Are there any hazards to consider?
    • Overhead power lines
    • Soft or recently excavated ground
    • Underground services
    • Overhead obstructions
    • Green concrete / suspended slabs
    • Inclines / embankments’ / drop-offs
  • If the equipment is being delivered to your site on a truck, should the Coates Hire driver:
    • Go to the office before continuing onto the site?
    • Drive straight into the site?
    • Reverse in?
    • Or will traffic management need to be arranged?
To help support you, Coates Hire offers a free site inspection and quote service to ensure you get the right equipment at the right time. Enquire about this service here.
