From Aberdeen to Truro and Glasgow to Guildford, Horizon has been providing platform hire across the UK before, during and now post-lockdown. Be it a scissor lift for a short term hire or a cherry picker for a lengthy 12-month contract, we have had the right solution for customers all over the United Kingdom.

Our customers appreciate the emphasis we place on quick, reliable hire and the consistent quality delivered across all orders with Horizon, whether supplied from our Super Depot, or via our network of carefully selected partners.  In the last 12 months, our cross-hire network has provided the full Horizon experience to customers at over 1,500 postcodes all over the UK. From Haulotte’s in Harrow, SkyJacks in Skegness and even a Genie in Gillingham!

Platform Supply in the UK

We provide a unique customer experience by offering our customers multiple levels of service and support. This is regardless of location or machine source. Possessing our own fleet, as well as access to the highest quality network of partner suppliers, puts Horizon in a unique position to better serve our customers.

Adrian Bleasdale, our Chief Operating Officer said “We’re very proud of our service offer and our network of partners. We have strict standards and high expectations, and those values are shared by all of our partners. It’s by ensuring consistency across the board that we can guarantee the genuine Horizon experience is delivered on each and every order”
