Operated and Self Drive Access Equipment

Access equipment is available on an operated or self drive basis (with the relevant license). All machine operators at Universal are trained to meet IPAF standards and we have eight full time instructors available for staff training. Our instructors also offer other working at height related training courses, including PASMA Tower Training and Ladder Training. Our operators are also fully PTS certificated, for working on or adjacent to railways. At Universal we are able to carry out site surveys to determine your particular requirements and provide risk assessments and method statements.

Universal holds Link-up and IPAF Rental+ accreditation. Our rail division currently works with Network Rail and London Underground and is a leading supplier to both these companies. 

With seven depots around the UK, we are in the unique position of being able to offer a nationwide service 24/7/364 days and are experienced in working within the strict time constraints typical of this sector.
