Whether you’re a hire company that supplies powered access equipment or an end-user who requires the equipment, Uphire can help you with our Scissor Lift Cross-hire services!
What is Scissor Lift Cross-Hire?
Cross-hiring is the act of using another hire company to fulfil your customer’s requirements. There can be a multitude of reasons as to why you would need to cross-hire (e.g. site location or general availability), which we’ll explain further in this blog
Rather than turn your customer away, you can cross-hire with Uphire to fulfil the order on your behalf.
Benefits to Hire Companies:
Whether you are a hire company that has nationwide contracts or a company that has a small service area, cross-hiring may be your best solution and here’s why…
- Location – If you have a customer who requires a Scissor Lift out of your service area
- Cost – Instead of paying your drivers, fuel and machine costs you can cross-hire through Uphire
- Time – Save hours of travel time to destinations which do not fit your schedule
- Fleet – Customer may require a MEWP which you do not supply
- Availability – Your schedule may not allow you to fulfil the order
Benefits to End-Users:
Cross-hiring doesn’t just benefit the hire companies, there are many reasons for an end-user to cross-hire too…
- Workload – Take away your effort of finding the right supplier every time you hire
- Vendor Reduction – Less admin work for you as you’ll only deal with Uphire
- Knowledge – Not sure what lift you need? Our experts can help you make those decisions
- Time – Make just one call to Uphire rather than a long list of suppliers
- Price – Our market knowledge means you should always pay the right price
