Another option when looking for access platforms, such as cherry pickers and scissor lifts is to look at our fleet of used access platforms. Used MEWPs can be more cost-effective and we can assure you that our used powered access platforms are a very good investment and of the highest quality.
Find high-quality used scissor lifts, articulating boom lifts and cherry pickers for sale. Every used access platform we sell will either come direct from our own hire fleet and has been maintained to the very highest standards, or we will have sourced the machine from our approved network, ensuring you complete peace of mind that you are buying safe, high-quality equipment as well as a great investment for the long term.
From second-hand cherry pickers to scissor lifts, our team of highly trained Service Engineers inspect, service, and carry out all preventative maintenance of every used MEWP we stock. Our in-house experts will have found their way around every nut and bolt to ensure that your platform is ready for work. Additionally, every platform comes with a full six-month LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) certificate.

There may be a preconception that used access platforms may look obviously second-hand, but that isn’t the case with Horizon Platforms. All our used access platforms are sold with a full 6-month LOLER certificate and fully serviced by our expert in-house engineering team. We sell all of our used platforms with a warranty that can also be extended if you prefer.
A main advantage of buying used access platforms is you’ll have access to quality brands that may otherwise be unaffordable. Our team is on hand to ensure you find a quality MEWP that meets the demands of your project and your budget - delivery to your site is also available at an added cost.
We will service and maintain your equipment wherever you are in the UK.

There are many advantages of buying used MEWPs, with the main one being the cost. Overall it is generally cheaper to buy used and refurbished cherry pickers and scissor lifts compared to buying brand-new access platforms.
You also won't need to compromise on brand or quality as you can procure a top-of-the-range work-from-height machine without breaking the budget. If you know what type of lifting platform you are looking for, buying a used boom lift or other MEWP can present a great opportunity.
There are always risks when buying used MEWPs, and as with anything in life you get what you pay for. It’s never advisable to ‘go cheap’ when it comes to safely working at height.
