The benefits of purchase over rentalAnna Ramsden
Could you benefit from buying a cherry picker rather than rental?
If you rent a cherry picker for weeks at a time, you will save money buy purchasing your own conversion. At the end of your payments you will also have an asset that can be sold on, traded in or kept for several years if you maintain the vehicle and the boom. The second-hand market for cherry pickers is full of units that have been misused or neglected. CPL often have used equipment available which has been fully maintained and checked by our Customer Support engineers throughout its time in the field.
If you take care of your unit, it will be worth a very reasonable amount when you come to sell it meaning you can upgrade to the latest version and technology.
A van mounted cherry picker or 4×4 MEWP costs over £300.00 per day to rent with a operator. Of course you can operate the machine yourself but you will need an IPAF license to ensure safe practice.
With a CPL cherry picker you will receive full handover training and we have designed our conversions to ensure the controls are simple and straight forward.
