More New Equipment on the Horizon

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

Yes, we’re at it again. Tom Brook

Due to popular demand Horizon are adding to the fleet once again, and with the busy period upon us, what better time to receive more new JLG deliveries?

As of June 17th we have steadily been taking delivery of all core products which is enabling us to supply the great demand our customers expect from us, whilst also maintaining our impeccable customer service and young fleet of equipment.

Obviously, we cut no corners when it comes to satisfying the customer and that’s why we’re one of the largest independent stockists of JLG equipment.  Throughout the industry the JLG brand is synonymous with quality, reliability and elegance which is something we’re more than happy to put our name to.

If you would like to make a memorable impression on site and give a great impression in front of your new client then it’s not too late!

We are taking many more deliveries in the coming months.

Now that’s what I call Nifty!

Luke Jones - Horizon PlatformsHorizon Platforms have invested heavily (yet again!), in new equipment this year, with a large sum being spent on a particular range of products.  I’m sure you are all aware that at one point or another you have tried to hire or have hired one of the NiftyLift range of booms.  The product itself is revolutionary for warehousing, industrial and also construction work.

All of the equipment we purchase from NiftyLift is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.  Machines also have non-marking tyres as well as a huge outreach and the NiftyLift trade mark narrow machine width.  I think we can all agree that that this investment is money well spent.  The substantial order will give Horizon Platforms the breathing room it often requires to meet customers’ demands, along with allowing us to be able to satisfy more orders at the high level of customer service you have all come to expect.

I have no doubt that I will be taking a look at the new machines as they arrive, and also checking out the Anti-entrapment device which has been fitted to each of the machines (HR15NDEHR17NDE and HR21 Hybrid).  I need to be quick if I don’t want to miss out on a viewing of the brand new machines though, as demand is high and I am sure the machines will be out on hire as fast as they come in.

Clean Environment? Clean Machine!

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Powered access equipment has traditionally been used for heavy construction work and other similar industries.  However, since the introduction of the Work at Height Regulations, MEWP’s have been in more demand for other sectors such as hospitals, warehousing and manufacturing.

Contractors working in clean environments will know how important it is to have equipment in excellent working order.  It is also imperative that the machines are spotless and free of any contamination.

Luckily for our customers, Horizon Platforms are fully equipped for hires in these environments. With the average age of our fleet being less than 3 years old, and the type of equipment we run – we should definitely be your number one choice for powered access rental for those demanding sites.

We also offer additional ways to avoid any contamination, such as wheel covers and nappies/drip trays.

If you have a contract coming up for a clean site, or if you have an ongoing requirement  – please get in touch with us.  We are happy to discuss your needs and come up with  the right solution for you.

If you’re not sure – just ask!

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Have you ever ordered an access platform to find that when it turns up on site, it doesn’t fit through the door or reach high enough? It’s an easy mistake to make but it could end up  costing you more money than expected, and we could all do without that right?

That’s why we at Horizon Platforms offer a free site survey to all of our customers.  Our dedicated team of experts will visit your site – come wind, rain, snow or shine to ensure you are provided with the safest, most cost effective solution.

So don’t be shy – ask us for our professional advice.  That is what we are here for!

Introducing Damian Edge

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I have been with Horizon Platforms since May 2008. At that time Horizon was a relatively new company and I have been proud to be a part of its evolution and growth despite the adversity in today’s market place.

 My role is as a driver/hire operative, though I have been fortunate enough to have spent time in the past within the busy hire office when staffing constraints have required a little flexibility. That opportunity has served me well and given me a greater appreciation of our customer needs and expectations.

 I know I will echo my colleagues’ sentiments, but one of Horizon’s strengths is the pride we take in our customer care whether it is in hire, sales, training or service. Previous employment experience with HSBC, being Self-Employed within the Haulage Industry and latterly employed with West Yorkshire Police, has given me a comprehensive understanding of the levels of personal service we aim to provide for all our customers.

 My other ‘role’ within the company is that of entertainment co-ordinator, organising events throughout the year including our very own ‘special’ Christmas Party.

 There is an excellent rapport between staff and directors (an open door policy is maintained) both in and out of working hours, operating as a team and as friends. It would not be unusual to find one of the directors ‘getting his hands dirty’ if the need arose at the end of a day.

 As our fleet of platforms continues to expand, the company believes that service levels must remain our priority.  As part of our investment in service and support, I am looking forward to taking delivery of a brand new Volvo, 370 HP truck next month.  This, along with one of the youngest rental fleets in the UK makes working for a Horizon a very exciting and rewarding place to be.
