Electric Hoist Hire


Electric Hoist Hire

Material lifting hoists and passenger lifts for hire or sale.

We have a wide range of material, passenger and goods hoists including transport platforms, rack and pinion hoists, combi lifts, scaffold hoists and inclined elevators to name a few.

Our electric hoists can be wall mounted or attached directly to a scaffold, to lift equipment weighing up to 850kg to a height of 100 metres. Some platforms can also be used to carry up to 5 people. The double barrow load platforms provide enough space for bulky and heavy building materials which helps to improve logistics on site.

All of Rapid Platforms hoist rentals include installation, dismantling and the necessary documentation for daily inspections, and we are proud to have an excellent response time to breakdown calls with a backup service second to none. Our team of experienced and certified hoist engineers maintain hoist equipment to the highest standard, with all of our engineers conducting thorough examination checks that conform to LOLER Regulations. You can trust that hoist equipment hired from Rapid Platforms is of the highest quality and perfect for your working at height requirements.

Our scaffold hoists are attached directly to the scaffolding with a swivel design to lift equipment and materials quickly and safely. With Rapid Platforms offering both short and long-term scaffold hoist rentals, and a highly qualified team of hoist engineers ready to provide a backup service which is second to none, you can trust in our scaffold hoists to improve the logistics on your site.

Our Geda hoists offer a simple and good-value transport system for lifting gear and equipment. Being strong and durable for lifting equipment and construction supplies to a height of up to 100 metres, the Geda hoists make the logistics of working at height simple. Full installation and dismantle services are available with all hoist hires.
