Building Maintenance

Changing light globes, fixing roof leaks, and checking HVAC ductwork located along the ceiling are just a few of the maintenance jobs that can be easily reached using a cherry picker. Allowing maintenance workers to have all their tools within easy reach, a battery or electric powered cherry picker can be swiftly moved into place and be stabilized to ensure worker safety. Much more stable than a ladder and more convenient than erecting scaffolding, cherry picker hire is ideal for maintenance within factories, warehouses, shopping centres, sporting facilities and more.

Retail – Shop Fitting, Stocktake & Visual Merchandising

Whether it’s completing a new shop fit-out or refurbishment, many retail outlets require lighting, shelving, cabinetry, signage, and visual merchandising displays to be installed up high. Cherry pickers are perfect for this, as they allow workers and their tools to safely reach the required height and can be easily moved throughout the store. Stocktake is another task which a cherry picker can handle with ease; many retailers store their excess goods up high and out of reach, the best way to check and count these at stocktake time is with a cherry picker.

Warehousing – Storing and Picking Products

Warehouse order pickers and packers may need to store and pick goods from racking systems that are as high as 12 feet or 16 feet. Cherry pickers can be used to reach tall heights in narrow aisles, and the platform generally allows enough space for multiple orders to be picked at once. With non-marking tyres and electric motors, cherry pickers will not cause damage to floor surfaces, and will not emit harmful fumes – this makes them ideal for warehouses which require clean environments for their products.

Renovations, Construction, and Installations

Cherry pickers can also be used to perform renovations and installations for both residential and commercial buildings. From installing support beams to electrical wiring, painting, and plastering, a cherry picker lifts workers and tools so that they can safely and efficiently complete a wide variety of internal building and construction jobs.  

If you are working indoors, it’s important to consider the access you have to the space. There are some smaller cherry pickers that can fit through a normal doorway however, these may have a limited height reach. Larger lifts can reach greater heights, however, these may require more access space. You also need to consider floor strength – the larger the machine, the heavier it is and the stronger the floor must be.
