Boom lift hire

Choose a boom lift right for your project

When it comes to boom lift hire, the AWS Nationwide extensive range has you and your project covered.

Also known as Cherry Pickers throughout the industry, a boom lift is a hydraulically controlled machine with a standing platform, commonly used most by our shop fitting and interior customers. Usually much higher than scissor lifts hire, AWS Nationwide can provide boom lift hire up to 85ft in total.

Articulated boom lift options

With excellent maneuverability, our range includes not only electric, and diesel options but even Bi-fuel options too! Our versatile range has you covered for whatever power source you require.

Electric articulating boom lift

Electric boom lift hire is very popular with trades working in narrow aisles, such as for warehouse maintenance work and in supermarkets and other shops to reach over the top of racking/shelving. Its power source is easily accessible when working indoors, helping your project reach new heights for longer periods of time.

Bi-energy boom lifts

Bi-Energy booms will combine an energy/battery system with a generator, allowing you to charge batteries during your project. Not only will this last for a full day when charged overnight, it’s the perfect option to give you the flexibility to work in any terrain.

Partnered with industry leaders

Partnering with industry-leading MEWP rental and operator training providers, with a fleet size of over 65,000 machines, you can be sure that our boom lift hire comes with all the expert service, advice and technical support.


There are many types of boom lifts available for hire with AWS Nationwide, from telescopic boom lifts and articulating boom lifts to trailer-mounted boom lifts. Each model offers unique features and advantages suited to different project requirements and applications.

Before hiring a boom lift, assess your project requirements, including height, terrain conditions, and weight capacity. This will help you select the most suitable boom lift for your project. AWS Nationwide can help you select the correct machine by putting you in touch with one of our experts. Or for large, or unusual work applications, we can arrange project specific site surveys.

Safety needs to be top priority when it comes to your workforce hiring and operating a boom lift. Please make sure all operators are properly trained and certified through accreditations like IPAF and update as required.

To maximise efficiency and productivity, focus on the position of your hired boom lift so that it has optimal reach and access to the project’s working area. Additionally, make sure time management strategies are in place and efficient work processes to make the most of your hire.
