Genie Lift Rentals

Genie Lift Rentals

Are you in the market for an aerial lift? Does your latest construction or repair project require the use of such a lift, but you’ve decided not to buy? If so, renting an aerial lift might be the right choice for you.

When you choose to rent a lift, you still experience all the same benefits that you would when you buy a lift. You get to use it during your projects and let it make your work that much easier and more convenient. When you rent instead of buy, however, you also have the added benefits of not paying the full sales price. Additionally, you don’t have to worry about the hassle of storing it or maintaining it. Instead, you just get to use it and then return it when you’re done. It couldn’t be simpler.

Of course, choosing which type of aerial lift to rent can be a challenge in and of itself. After all, there are so many different types out there, and each has its own unique strengths, weaknesses and special purposes. To get a better idea of which might be right for you and your project, we’ve compiled this handy reference guide to all the different Genie lifts for rent. By the time you’re finished browsing this guide, we hope you’ll be more informed about which options are out there and which option is the best choice for your purposes.

Genie Boom Lift Rentals

Genie Boom Lift Rentals

As you may know, aerial lifts can be broadly categorized into several different “families” or styles of lifts. While the lifts within these categories are different, they do share many similar characteristics that make it easy to group them together for the sake of simplicity and organization.

The first category we’ll be examining is boom lifts. A boom lift is one that raises the worker and equipment up into the air by use of a long hydraulic arm. While there is a great amount of variation among these types of lifts, all boom lifts share the feature of this long arm.

Among the many strengths and advantages that boom lifts offer, you’ll find that these types of lifts typically provide a higher degree of flexibility and maneuverability compared to other styles, as well as generally higher lift heights. The tradeoff is that the platforms tend to be smaller than they might be on other styles of lifts. Additionally, these lifts tend to run on the more expensive end of the spectrum, due to their highly agile and flexible nature.

Let’s look at a few of the Genie boom rentals available for your upcoming projects.

1. Electric Articulating Boom Lifts

If you’re looking for precision, maneuverability and speed, then you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for when you opt for an electric articulating boom lift. This type of model features the same hydraulic arm that we mentioned earlier, although it adds a few key upgrades to this basic design. With these types of lifts, the extending arm has several joints in it that allow for greater levels of precision and flexibility. You’ll find that these types of lifts are better able to maneuver in tight spaces and often have a much higher reach than comparable lifts.

While you’ll be hard-pressed to find situations in which this type of lift isn’t extremely convenient, they’re especially useful in projects where you’re working in close-quarters and maneuverability is a high priority.

If you decide this is the type of boom lift you’re interested in, there are several different models to choose from. For your convenience, these different models are available in a wide range of heights and sizes. This allows you to select the machine that will work best for you with a greater level of precision and confidence.

2. Rough Terrain Articulating Boom Lift

Some projects take place in calm, controlled environments. Some projects even take place indoors. You might find yourself working on even pavement or flat earth. For these types of projects, plenty of kinds of booms will do the trick. However, these aren’t the only types of projects out there. There are plenty of projects out there that will force you to work on rough and uneven terrain where delicate types of lifts simply won’t cut it.

When you find yourself working on these types of projects, the only type of lift to choose is a rough terrain articulating boom lift. These lifts offer the same advantage of a regular articulating boom lift — namely, the jointed hydraulic arm that allows for greater flexibility and directional changes. With this arm, you’ll find yourself better able to squeeze into tight spaces. The primary added strength of these lifts, of course, is their ability to traverse rough terrain and balance on uneven ground, keeping the platform steady even when the ground beneath you is not.

This style of lift comes in multiple different models as well, and typically offers a much higher reach than an ordinary electric articulating boom lift, although you’ll find smaller sizes as well. Browse our different available models and choose which one looks like it might be right for you.

3. Telescopic Boom Lift

While there are plenty of lift options for projects at a lower altitude, the options begin to thin out the higher the altitude you’re working at. Lots of lifts can easily take you as high as 50, 75 or even 100 feet. But once you begin to get much higher than this, there isn’t exactly a wide variety to choose from.

If your project requires you to complete work at heights of more than 100, 150 or even 180 feet, then we have the solution for you. We recommend choosing the telescopic boom lift. These are designed to stretch to incredible heights, allowing you access to areas that almost no other boom lift can reach. In addition to this, these designs are built with stability in mind. This means that no matter how high you get, you can feel secure in knowing that the boom is stable.

As with most of our other types of lifts, the telescopic boom is available in a variety of sizes and heights. This makes it easy to choose the correct size for your purposes, instead of working with one that’s either too short or far longer than you actually need.

Genie Scissor Lift Rentals

If boom lifts don’t seem like quite the right choice for your product, that’s all right. There are other major styles out there that might suit better. One of the most popular families of aerial lifts out there is the scissor lift. While they perform the same basic function as a boom lift in that they work to lift workers up to otherwise inaccessible heights for construction and repair purposes, scissor lifts do this in an entirely different way.

Scissor lifts are formed by a platform supported by crisscrossing braces that essentially work like an elevator, moving straight up and straight down. Because of the nature of these lifts, they offer several distinct advantages that you won’t find with something like a boom lift. The platform is often significantly larger, allowing for greater workspace and room to move around. In addition to this, scissor lifts usually cost significantly less money than boom lifts. The tradeoff, of course, is less flexibility and maneuverability.

As you consider whether or not scissor lifts might be the right tool for your next job, look at some of the major Genie lifts for rent in the scissor lift family.

1. Electric Scissor Lift

Think of this as the standard scissor lift option. There may not be an excessive amount of bells and whistles on this lift, but it’s sturdy, practical and will absolutely get the job done in a reliable way. This scissor lift elevates passengers and workers straight up and straight down again, all while providing a spacious platform with plenty of room to work, carry tools and move around.

Because the platform is so wide and is located directly over the crisscrossing beams, scissor lifts also add an element of safety. While the reality is that all aerial lifts are tested and safe, there’s an undeniable level of comfort about standing on a platform that appears as well supported as a scissor lift. Because of this, the electric scissor lift remains a popular option.

If you’re working a standard job in an open and uncrowded space where there isn’t a great need for flexibility, the electric scissor lift is a great choice. Review the different models available and select the size and design that seems best for you.

2. Rough Terrain Scissor Lift

If the electric scissor lift can be readily compared to the electric articulating boom, then the rough terrain scissor lift can easily be compared to the rough terrain articulating boom. This lift has all the same features and benefits of the basic scissor lift. It takes things one step further, however, by adding the additional feature of all-terrain capabilities.

For those jobs that take place on rocky, unstable or uneven terrain, you’ll want to choose a type of rough terrain lift. And for jobs that would benefit from having additional platform space and increased levels of stability, we recommend going with the rough terrain scissor lift.

Telehandler Rentals

Telehandler Rentals

In some cases and some projects, of course, a traditional aerial lift just doesn’t fit the bill. Maybe you’ve looked at both boom lifts and scissor lifts and decided that despite the many advantages these machines offer, they aren’t quite the right tool for your job. If that’s the case, why not try looking at Genie telehandler rentals?

A telehandler, also sometimes referred to as an all-terrain forklift or a telescopic forklift, is a great tool that’s perfect for many applications where some of the lifts we discussed earlier might not do the trick. Just a few of the advantages you’ll find with forklifts are their all-terrain capabilities as well as their unparalleled capacity for carrying tools and equipment.

Browse our various telehandler rental options and see if any of them might be just the right choice for your next job.

Renting vs. Buying

There are plenty of cases where buying a lift or telehandler might be the right choice. If you’re constantly working on project after project of similar natures, it only makes sense to own the equipment yourself.

But this isn’t always the case. Sometimes, a project is a one-off occurrence. Or maybe you frequently work construction and repair projects, but these projects are so different that you find yourself needing a different lift every time.

The advantage of renting a lift means that you’re not restricted to any one model. You can rent one type of lift for one project, and then rent a different one for a different project. In addition to this, you’re not responsible for storing them between projects, or for maintaining them. You can return them when the project is done and your rental is up, and no longer have to worry about caring for them.

While renting or buying is a big decision that will be unique for every person, there are certainly perks to renting industrial lift equipment. If your project and need for a lift are of a temporary nature, we encourage you to consider renting one of these lifts.
