How to Rent Lift Equipment in Auckland: A Step-by-Step Guide

You’re ready to dive into your next construction project, but then you realise something’s missing. Investing in major pieces of equipment ahead of a new project can be seriously daunting, and many people choose to rent their equipment rather than pay that much at the outset.

At Castle Access, we’re proud to be the premier provider of rental lift equipment in Auckland. We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to help you rent with us for the first time. From researching which equipment you need to returning equipment, once the project timeline is completed, we cover it all.


Do Your Research

Before you dive in, to find the right piece of equipment, you first need to understand your project requirements. Determine the type of lift equipment you need based on factors like:

  •       Height or reach requirements. Scissor lifts won’t get you as high as a boom or mast lift, so it’s important to know the maximum reach your project will require.
  •       Weight capacity. The more personnel or material you need to move, the higher your equipment’s load capacity should be.
  •       Terrain conditions. Difficult terrain on-site will require more sturdy construction.
  •       Access issues. The smaller or more strangely shaped sites usually require additional precision, which might call for an articulating boom or something of that nature.

Contact Castle Access

At Castle Access, we’re known for our extensive fleet of well-maintained machinery and our top-notch customer service, which means we’re here to help guide you through the rental process.

To ensure you get the equipment you’re looking for, it’s best to get in touch with us early. Our knowledgeable staff can walk you through our rental range, helping you select the perfect equipment to get your project over the line on time.

Choose Your Equipment

We offer free consultations to discuss your project requirements. This will help you select the most suitable piece of equipment from our inventory. While you know your project best, we know our equipment best, so this consultation ensures a match made in heaven.

When choosing your equipment, we’ll make sure to ask the right questions:

  •       What kind of fuel type do you need?
  •       Is it a short-term or long-term rental?
  •       What additional features do you need?

Confirm Your Rental

Once you’ve selected the equipment you need and the period of time you need it, it’s time to finalise your rental agreement with us. We’re careful to review all of the terms and conditions with you, including any maintenance obligations, insurance options, storage considerations, and more.

This rental agreement represents how long you’ll have the equipment and what you can do with it while you have it (namely, nail your project). Therefore, it’s important to ask any questions you have at this stage so we can clarify any terms right then and there. This will give you total peace of mind, allowing you to focus on the tasks ahead.

Receive Your Equipment

Your agreement will stipulate a start date, which is when we’ll deliver your lift equipment to your specified site in Auckland. Our experienced technicians will ensure the equipment is in tip-top shape before it arrives on-site and provide any final instructions for safe operation. This is our chance to do a handover and ensure you have everything you need.

At this point, feel free to check out the equipment and ask any questions so we can help you feel settled with your new fleet of top-notch rental equipment.

Return Your Equipment

We’ll liaise with you once your rental period is up to confirm pickup. Before we get there, it’s important to make sure the equipment is fairly clean and free of any damage, as well as make sure all accessories are accounted for before pickup. We’ll handle the retrieval process, allowing you to wrap up your project smoothly without any hassle.

If any damage has occurred during the rental process, please let us know as soon as possible so we can work with you to arrange repairs and insurance considerations. That way, handoff goes quickly, and we can let you get back to doing what you do best!

At the end of the day, if you’re unsure about the next step, you can always contact Castle Access. We’re serious about our customer service and lift equipment rentals, which means we’re on hand to guide you through the rental process with ease.
