Scissor Lifts

Temporary Scissor Lifts at Foley Rents

Scissor lifts (also called platform lifts) are versatile tools for moving materials and working at height. Use them in any situation in which additional platform space is required. Compared to other types of aerial lifts, they offer a larger capacity and more working space — essential benefits for complex jobs where multiple staff members, tools or materials are required at the same time.

Foley, Inc. carries one of the best selections of scissor lift to buy or rent in New Jersey, eastern PA, northern DE and Staten Island, New York. Based in Piscataway, we provide clients throughout the region with a large inventory of low-hour, well-maintained machines. Follow the links below to learn more about individual rental products. Better yet, get in touch with our office directly to speak with a rental representative.

Renting a Scissor Lift: What You Need to Know

Scissor lifts provide fast, secure access to heights in warehouses, construction sites, utility work and other applications. Choosing the right model for your needs requires a careful consideration of height, weight, environment and other working requirements. Foley, Inc. rents scissor lifts for a wide range of potential applications, including use in rough terrain construction sites, narrow-aisle warehouses and more. Benefits of using a scissor lift instead of other products can include:

  • Safety: Larger working spaces mean more room to maneuver at height and, as a result, less chance of an on-the-job accident.
  • Productivity: When you can quickly move larger amounts of materials or more team members, your productivity is improved, allowing you to turn around complex jobs faster.
  • Operating costs: Greater productivity also means less idling time and lower overall operating costs — important benefits for any organization on a tight budget.

Scissor lifts aren’t the right choice for every application, however. Their larger footprint can be an issue when working in confined spaces. They also are less flexible than other types of aerial equipment when it comes to working around obstacles, and they cannot reach the extreme heights of certain telescoping and articulating boom lifts.

As with any short-term equipment choice, renting a scissor lift requires strong partnerships with companies that know their inventory and can steer you in the right direction. That’s where Foley, Inc. comes in.
