What you need from your scaffolding hire company

Sometimes you have a project that needs to complete by a certain date, you, however, do not have the required materials so you call your local scaffolding hire company to help you out. The problem comes in when the company you requested services from is delayed or does not have experienced enough staff to get the job done on time. You need to know what you are looking for.


The single most important factor is reliability, a scaffold company needs to be on time and deliver the right materials at the right locations. Too many times do scaffolding companies arrive on site with the incorrect scaffolding requirements and materials, the last thing you want is your project to be delayed even more.


I have worked on many scaffolding sites and it is not uncommon for a team of assemblers to show up on a site without the correct tools and experience to erect the scaffolding to your specifications. Many scaffolding companies look for cheap and untrained labour in order to squeeze the most profit out of every job the attempt. Do not use these companies as you could land yourself in major problems, we will cover it in the next point…


Nowadays safety is a primary concern for all construction companies, after all, if they do not comply with health and safety regulations they could land themselves in deep water; from retraction of tenders to lawsuits for damaged property. All scaffolding needs to be assembled with the correct safety equipment such as harnesses and hardhats as well as the right tools to ensure the scaffolding is safe and sturdy.

Thanks for reading. Hopefully, you do not fall into the trap of hiring a scaffolding company that does not value you or your time. If you need any further information or just want to talk scaffolding do not hesitate to email us.
