National Reach

National Reach - local knowledge

If you need to hire an access platform outside Horizon’s heartland in the north of England, we’re here to help. We may not be able to supply the platform from our own fleet, but we have the knowledge, expertise and contacts to find you what you need. What’s more, we’ll make all the arrangements on your behalf and take care of the finer details, so you can rely on the same high quality, hassle-free service you’ve come to expect.

The Horizon network: providing national delivery of access platforms

Cross hire by Horizon is a one-stop shop for all your platform hire needs. Thanks to the Access Alliance - a national network of trusted access platform providers – we’ll ensure you get the machine you want, when you want it, wherever you are in the UK. The service allows you to hire a platform anywhere in the UK and Ireland. Just tell your Relationship Support Manager what you need and when, and we’ll do the rest.

WE'RE ALWAYS ON HAND...

Here are just some of the reasons why using the Horizon network makes sound business sense:

One point of contact:

The true value of Horizons cross-hire service lies in the existing relationship between us. Having one supplier to meet your nationwide hire needs and access to your RSM - a single contact who already knows and understands you - makes cross-hire an efficient, convenient and cost effective service, saving you valuable time, money and energy on everything from finding a platform to placing an order.


Outstanding levels of service:

They may not be our machines, but you are still our valued customer and that means you will continue to benefit from our outstanding levels of customer service. We provide a full and fast response to any query. We’ll be there whenever you need us and will keep you in the picture by providing reliable delivery times, even sending you live text message updates depending on your preference.


Availability and reliability:

Our knowledge of reputable suppliers in every region of the UK means we know where to find tried and tested machines and who we can rely on to deliver them. We can place orders on your behalf and be confident that you will receive the machines you need, when you need them.


Industry expertise and knowledge:

With a wealth of experience in the powered access industry and an understanding of our clients’ needs, we can find the right people for the job – companies to deliver the best equipment within the area it needs to be supplied in throughout the UK.


Value for money:

We’ll work hard to keep your nationwide hire costs as low as possible. We never take customer loyalty for granted; indeed we reward it wherever we can, so if we can negotiate a discount or shop around to find you a better deal, we’ll do just that.
