Why Choose Eagle Platforms for all your Platform Hire & Training Needs


20 January 2022



Eagle Platforms boast decades of experience in our dedicated and passionate team and are relentless in their pursuit of excellence in all areas of the business. Over the past few years the Eagle Platforms rental equipment inventory has been considerably bolstered. The emphasis has not only been on quantity, but on the very best quality access work platform machines on the market – enabling our many clients to choose from the best, most energy-efficient machines in a range of sizes and models that covers all conceivable jobs and situation.

Let’s take a closer look at the many reasons why Eagle Platforms is the perfect choice for provision of access and telehandler rental equipment as well as associated working at height training courses.

Ongoing investment

Over the course of the last 6 months alone, Eagle Platforms have invested an additional £3m on brand new additions to the fleet, with the current count totalling over 500 units available for hire – all cherry picked (pardon the pun) for excellence, efficiency and reliability. All of the new units are accompanied with generator power – take off to platform – and the very latest in safety features.

Reaching for the stars…almost!

Among the new additions are cherry pickers with a reach of up to 41m, scissor lifts up to 22m, with 28m models coming in summer 2022, and telehandlers with a  working height capacity of 17m.

Green credentials

All of the new machines in our fleet are either zero emission stage 5 diesel or have hybrid power capability.

Back-up power

The Eagle Platforms back-up support has been boosted by a fleet of brand new, low emission Ford transit vehicles, fully equipped and ready to be on site within 2 hours of any breakdown.

Training improvements

Eagle Platforms have added a second training site to double capacity as demand for our award winning IPAF, PASMA and telehandler training services soars.

Finally, we are delighted to report that our ‘IPAF Rental Plus’ status has been successfully renewed for another year, after a December 2021 audit.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or enquiries. We will be delighted to hear from you.
