Height for Hire Ltd.

Height for Hire is an Irish owned family-run access machinery rental business headquartered in Ashbourne, Co Meath. We have been operating since 1978 and have over 2,000 machines across 36 locations in four countries – Ireland, the UK, Hungary and Slovakia. We opened our Limerick Depot in 1986.

We have the largest range of access machinery within the British Isles, split into four divisions – core access machinery, truck mounts, spider lifts and self drives.
However, it is the way in which we deliver our rental service that makes us different.

We value uptime, constantly investing in the best machinery, renewing our fleet more often than the competition. This fact, along with our 24/7 Technical Support Helpline, has allowed us to cover our customers, even in extreme locations, around the clock.

Height for Hire was a finalist in the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year in the International Section.


  • We hire a range of access machinery including Truck-Mounted Boom Lifts up to 90m, which come with an experienced operator, and Self Drive Van Mounts up to 20m, which can be driven on a standard car licence.
  • We also supply specialised Spider Lifts for working at height with challenging access, such as narrow entrances, internal atriums or floors with weight restrictions.
  • Our standard core fleet of scissor and boom lifts are available around the country in our main and mini depots.
  • We provide a range of Safety Training courses for operators and managers, including IPAF Operator and IPAF MEWPs for Mangers Training.
  • We also consider long term hire options or site implants for large projects.
  • We can provide an operator with our Self Drive Van Mounts and Specialised Spider Lifts, if required.
