Hire Access Equipment in Sydney

If you need heavy equipment but don’t have an ongoing need, using an Access Equipment hire solution can make the difference. There are a number of reasons why you would use this as an alternative over buying:

No servicing

You won’t have to worry about incurring servicing costs. All servicing is included for each Access Equipment machine you use, whether on site, or in our workshop. We also offer a Preventative Maintenance program, which includes having a technician inspect the machinery every three months.

Multiple machine accessibility

There is a variety of top-notch machinery available for hire to assist with your projects. Power Access has the largest range and most modern fleet of Access Equipment in Sydney, including major brands like Genie, JLG, Haulotte Group, Snorkel, dl, and Niftylift.


We provide Yellow Card training for all machinery hired through Power Access. This helps keep your team in compliance with occupational health and safety regulations. All training sessions take place at our training facility in Wetherill Park, but we do offer training at private worksites when requested. Training is offered every week.


We offer short and long-term rental of Elevating Work Platforms. Additionally, the machine is transported to and from the site by the hire company, saving time, money and transport costs.


Renting the equipment you need for specific projects is more cost effective than purchasing a piece of equipment you will not use on a frequent basis. You’ll have the advantage of using the latest equipment, and you won’t incur any servicing fees.

Why should you use Power Access?

Power Access offers a variety of machines, including the Cherry Picker, Boom Lift and Scissor Lift Hire. Our elevating work platforms includes diesel and electric scissor lifts, articulating and telescoping boom lifts. It’s important to know the type of lift you’ll need to maximize your cost savings and get the job done.

Our selection of boom lifts include Mast boom lifts/Runabouts/Trailers, Knuckle Boom lifts and Telescopic boom lifts. Here are a few boom lift facts:

  • Mast boom lifts work well in narrow spaces. They are electric and compact, used for hard or slab work. For projects requiring an increased reach, additional jib booms are available.
  • Knuckle boom lifts can use electricity or diesel. The electric knuckle boom lifts work best indoors, and the diesel-powered is ideal for outdoor projects.
  • Telescopic boom lifts use electricity for indoor projects and diesel for outdoors. These are used for outreach and height.

Benefits of using a hire company?

It’s important to use an experienced team when selecting the type of equipment you need. This ensures you not only have the right machine but will also receive the right training. A hire and rental company should also provide site inspections to help with the selections. Although once you hire the machine, you have some accountability, the responsibility lies on the company to make sure the equipment is operational at all times.

Telescopic Lift Hire Guide

Hire, rent or purchase? It’s an age-old question for so many services and items, including when it comes to heavy equipment and machinery for specialty jobs, and it goes without saying that there are both pros and cons to each. But when it comes to telescopic lifts machines, it often makes more sense to go the hiring route versus the purchase route, especially when you consider the various types of telescopic lift machines and the frequency in which you’ll need to use them for various tasks. Here’s a look at why it makes sense to go the telescopic lift hire route:

Why Hire?

Aside from the obvious cost savings of renting when you need one versus outright purchasing one (and then having to maintain the equipment regardless of how much and how often you use it), there are several other benefits associated with telescopic lift hire. Here’s a closer look:

  • Equipment flexibility: Like we’ve noted, telescopic lifts come in different varieties, so the one you purchase for a task isn’t necessarily the right one that you’ll need when it comes to performing the next task. That’s one big benefit of hiring, or renting — you can get what you want on demand, rather than having to modify a purchased lift for the task that you need to perform. Furthermore, if you need to hire multiple telescopic lifts, that’s another thing that going the hire vs. purchase route enables when it comes to flexibility.
  • Training provided: When you hire a lift, training is provided — and it’s always timely and relevant to the use you’ll need it for right now. Some equipment manufacturers might offer training when you purchase a lift, but just think about how much of that training you’ll forget over time. When you hire a lift, you’ll receive the training right before you use it, so it’s top of mind. This helps permit you to perform the task with a higher degree of safety.
  • Pay to play: We mentioned this above, but it’s worth mentioning again: When you hire, you’ll only pay for the time that you need to use it. This can represent a significant short and long term cost savings compared to purchasing a lift outright. In addition, you can count on the machine being delivered on time and properly maintained so that it starts up and is ready to operate during the period that you need it.
