Access Equipment Hire in Sydney

Why should you choose Access Equipment for your equipment rental needs? Let’s look at some facts.

On any worksite safety is an important issue. In Australia, 77% of injuries related to work are attributed to workers, incurring costs topping $61.8 billion. Add to that the fact that the construction industry ranks number three in the country for work related fatalities and it’s easy to see how important safety training and practices are.

You don’t have to go looking for the hazards; they are already there. Operating the equipment can be dangerous if it is not properly maintained or if the operator is not properly trained. If you own your equipment, you incur the (often quite large) added expense of maintaining your equipment yourself as well as machine specific training which can carry a pretty large price tag too.

The Power Access equipment hire division provides rental services for lifts such as telescopic boom lifts and hydraulic scissor lifts. This allows our customers to reap the benefits of having the equipment they need at their fingertips without having to shoulder the burden of all the costs associated with ownership.

Two of the main advantages are training and maintenance.

Operator training leads to better worksite safety.

The Power Access Yellow Card training helps operators become better operators. A Yellow Card is documentation proving that an operator has received the appropriate training needed to use an elevating work platform safely. When you hire Access Equipment you have the added benefit of training for the person or people who will be using the machine.

Each training module is approximately three hours long and can be conducted off-site at our facility or we can come to you. At the end of the training session, each participant will receive his or her Yellow Card.

When you purchase equipment, the training is often more difficult to access and considerably more expensive.

Regular maintenance means safer equipment.

The costs of maintaining equipment like lifts can be very cost prohibitive for many businesses. When you need several different pieces of equipment those costs go even higher. When you own your equipment, you are the one paying those costs.

Does owning your equipment really give you the best return on your investment?

In many cases, the answer is no.

There are some considerable costs associated with ownership. Fuel, grease, and oil are an ongoing maintenance expense that will be incurred on a regular basis throughout the life of the machine. This can be expensive, based on how often the machine is used, but repairs can cost even more.

Experts recommend setting aside around 2% of the yearly replacement price for the implement, or 2% of the engine operated machine’s replacement price. Of course, that percentage increases with increased use of the equipment.

At Power Access you can focus on the work at hand while we take care of equipment maintenance and repair. Not only do we have multiple machines for you to use that are specially suited to whatever job or need you have, we also do all of the servicing on that equipment.

If you want the benefits of having a fleet of lifts and equipment at your disposal without the headaches of ownership, give Access Equipment Hire Sydney a try.


Telescopic Lift Hire in Sydney

When you have a job, the last thing you need to worry about is your equipment. A telescopic lift is a specialized piece of equipment that can be costly to purchase and maintain. Quite often, a business may find that hiring their equipment is a better business decision.

Why hire instead of purchase?

Do you purchase or hire? When it comes to large equipment, this is not an easy question. Owning your equipment may seem like an attractive option simply because you will always have it when you need it. However, there are some detractors that may make ownership a less than attractive choice. Many businesses, particularly those that are smaller, find that telescopic lift hire offers many more benefits that purchasing.

No servicing expense – When large equipment breaks down it can be very costly to repair, and even more expensive to replace. When you hire a lift, you don’t bear the expense of maintenance, repair, or servicing. This not only saves you money, but you can get the equipment you need worry free. All you have to do is focus on the job at hand; we’ll take care of the rest.

More machines at your disposal – There is no such thing as one machine that does all the jobs you need on a work site. If you go the purchase route, this means you have to buy a different piece of equipment for each job. That can get very expensive very fast. Hiring equipment gives you the option to use multiple machines that are suited to each job without the expense of purchasing multiple units.

Only pay when the machine is being used – Hiring a telescopic lift also means that you only pay when the machine is being used. When you purchase equipment, it may sit in storage for months without being used while you still make regular payments. Hiring a lift give you the accessibility without ongoing payments. You pay when you use it. And when you aren’t using the equipment you don’t pay a dime.

No storage space required – If you own your equipment that means you must have a place to store it. Even a single telescopic lift requires more storage space than many companies have on hand. This means you either have to purchase storage space or lease it. That is an added expense you probably don’t need. When you choose to hire a lift, you don’t have to worry about storage, saving you money on several fronts.
