Cherry picker hire

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I've got an 80ft sycamore to take down, it's been condemned by tree officer, bracket fungi all over it and hollow inside etc...

Can anyone recommend where to hire a good cherry picker to hire for the job. I've tried HSS hire and they are a joke, they took over a week to get back to me despite chasing them and they would only hire one for a whole week at least £1800 plus vat.

The job is in Cambridgeshire.

Here's the tree...IMG_20181010_132911.jpeg

What’s the access like,my brother is not far away from you, he has a 22 m platform for a lot cheaper than that.
The access is ok...it is 1300mm, but if that's not enough I may be able to persuade them to remove a couple of shrubs then we have up to nearly 3000mm. Basically got to drive it across a lawn of the neighbours garden across the boundary and into the customer garden.
