A new specialist truck mounted platform rental company is now fully operational in the UK. Currently based in St Albans, Mobile Platform Hire UK has been set-up by owner and managing director Adam Tucker and currently has a fleet of five machines – all rented out with experienced operators – with working heights from 20 to 46 metres.

Mobile Platform Hire UK currently has a fleet of five machines with working heights from 20 to 46 metres.

Tucker, 30 and an ex-member of the British Army, started the company last year after several years working in various roles throughout the industry – operator, hire desk, sales and manager of the southern operations – with Wilson Access, part of the AFI group.

The company is already looking for larger premises in Milton Keynes, in the heart of an area where Tucker sees great potential for the business.
“This industry has enormous room for growth particularly in and around the fastest growing city in the UK,” he said. The company’s latest purchase is a 46 metre Bronto XDT which has a 24.5 metre outreach capability and 600kg basket capacity. Other machines include a 20 metre Palfinger, a 22 metre Ascendant and 30 metre and 34 metre Bronto Skylifts.

“Starting a new rental company in a sector I have only been involved with for a few years has at times been daunting. I have been pleasantly surprised how accepting and helpful other access rental companies have been,” he said. “We are primarily targeting but not limiting to work in a band across the UK from Norwich into Wales and between South London and Birmingham.” New UK truck mounted platform rental company

The 20 metre Palfinger

“Work has really been building up over the past few months as people become aware of our services and equipment. The personal service that we can offer has been a huge bonus for our clients. This year we are aiming to move to a bigger location and purchase a new 35 metre Bronto or 37 metre Palfinger to replace one of the existing 30 or 34 metre machines.

“It is early days, but I can see a gap in the market for a rental company such as ours, offering excellent service and equipment around the South and Midlands.”
