TMG offer a van mounted platform to hire hourly, or for longer periods. Our cherry picker has a working height of up to 18m, and is supplied with a fully trained operator to assist or carry out high level tasks. 

What is a Van Mounted Access Machine?

It’s a raiseable rear platform that can be moved/raised on the back of the vehicle to access  a roof, street light or guttering for example. This works in the same way as a cherry picker/boom lift but is permanently fixed to the back of a van fore easier movement and access.

What is a Spider Access Machine?

This is an access machine that is designed to move on caterpillar tracks. It’s more compact than a van mount machine and can be moved across most terrain and used on various gradients to allow safe access through the platform it elevates.

Why Use One?

Suitable for general maintenance or other important tasks, our machines are great for areas where space is limited or quick access is needed (rather than scaffolding) as you only need enough room to park a van or in some cases smaller than that for the spider machine. Access platforms provide a safer, easier alternative to ladders and a cheaper and more secure option than scaffolding and makes it much simpler to carry out tasks at a height.


The machines are available to hire in the following areas: Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, London, Essex, Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Essex, Middlesex, Cambridgeshire.

What is ‘working at height’?

Working at height is a term used by the Health & Safety Executive to describe working at any height that could cause injury. Generally, this is anywhere above the ground floor.

Working at height poses challenges, as it means each task needs to be carefully planned out and supervised. The higher you’ll be working, the more precautions that need to be taken. That’s why, for many jobs, it makes sense to use an access platform such as a cherry picker.

When you hire an access platform through TMG, we will supply a trained and experienced operator who will have experience working at height, and can help you carry out the work safely.

How high is your access platform?

The access platform supplied by TMG is capable of reaching heights of 18 metres (59 foot).

The spider machine supplied by TMG is capable of reaching heights of 25 metres


What if I just have a short job to do?

TMG offer flexible hire terms for our cherry picker. You can hire it for an hour for minor repair jobs, or for the longer term for repairs or installation. Simply pick up the phone and we can give you a price.



Who can hire an access machine?

Anyone who needs to get work done at a height can hire an access machine. As you can see above, we work with people in all trades, as well as private clients. Hiring our access platform includes the service of an experienced operator, and they’ll be able to advise on potential safety issues.

We also offer a full range of other facilities and maintenance services, including Electrical, Roofing, Security and much more.
