Scissor Lifts

Nationwide Platforms offer a number of scissor lifts for vertical access – these range from 8m to 22.5m in access height. The fleet includes machines with Safe Working Loads (SWL) up to one tonne. We also supply low-level, lightweight and compact scissor lifts for confined applications. A choice of diesel, electric and bi-energy machines are available. Take a look at our range on the Nationwide Platforms website.

Cherry Pickers

Nationwide offers van mounted platforms for access up to 16.5m. These are ideal for those requiring a machine that can be quickly delivered onto and away from work sites. Our van mounted platforms are available throughout the UK and may be self driven or can include a machine operator as part of the hire agreement. You can find our full range of van mounted platforms on the Nationwide Platforms website.

Low Level Access

Low level platforms provide the perfect solution when access of up to 11m is required.  These platforms are narrow and will fit through most doorways and passenger lifts.  Our range of low level platforms are all light weight and suitable for use on finished flooring.  You will find that these platforms do the job much better than, for example, aluminium towers, ladders or steps.  Low level access equipment is safer and certainly cost effective.  Have a look on our website for the range of low level access equipment we have available for hire.

Van Mounted Platforms

At Nationwide Platforms we offer van mounted platforms for hire, as well as having a range of quality new and second hand platforms available.  The applications for vans with boom-type mechanisms mounted on the roof are varied, covering everything from installation of signage, telecommunications and maintenance work.  Working heights are up to 44m.  Alternatively, you can hire van mounted platforms from us and be certain you will be using a robust and effective product, which can be driven away from your site as soon as the required job is finished.  Hire a van mounted platform from us for access of up to 16.5m.  You can choose self-drive, or we will provide an operator.  You can see the range available on our website

Specialist Platforms

We offer a range of new and used specialist platforms for sale and for hire.  Our specialist platforms will provide the solution when more traditional methods, such as boom and scissor lifts, are not suitable.  Working heights of up to 30m are accommodated, and our specialist platforms are ideal for indoor applications, with narrow access.  Please visit our website to see the range of new and second hand specialist platforms available, as well as those available to hire.


We are pleased to offer a wide selection of training courses – ranging from operator training for a good range of different platforms and lifts to Health and Safety and First Aid training to training for managers.  On one of our many IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training courses, your operators will benefit from learning how to use powered access not only effectively, but safely.  We also offer courses from PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association Ltd).  Our training courses are an excellent way to ensure you are getting the best possible use out of your access equipment and are available throughout the UK.  Take a look on line to see the full range of courses available.
